- Capital One 360: This is my primary bank account. It’s a no-fee checking and savings, with some of the highest interest rates you’ll find. My favorite feature is that you’re able to setup multiple savings accounts to save for different goals.
Budgeting & Net Worth Tracking: Mint & Personal Capital
- Mint: I’ve been using Mint now for over 7 years. It’s a free app that tracks your income and expenses. With over 7 years on the platform, I have a lot of useful data saved. My only issue with Mint is that it doesn’t correctly pull my investment accounts, which has lead me to move to Personal Capital for it’s tracking features.
- Personal Capital: Where Mint lacks, Personal Capital more than makes up. The free tools such as the cash flow and net worth calculators, investment checkup tool, and retirement fee analyzer provide better data to make smart, financial decisions.

Credit Cards: Chase Freedom
Credit Score: Credit Sesame
- Annual Credit Report: This is the site setup the the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) which requires the big three credit reporting agencies — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion — to provide you with a free copy of your credit report once every 12 months.
- Credit Sesame: This is a free and useful tool to monitor your credit. You get access to your TransUnion score and free credit monitoring, e.g. Credit Sesame alerts you when there is activity on your account. Plus, if you’re trying to increase your credit score, you can use the credit analyzer for guidance.
