My Favorite Credit Cards, Savings Accounts, and Cash Back Apps
I earn a commission or bonus miles/points when you use the links on this page to apply for accounts. Using these links helps support the work I do on YouTube and Facebook. Just click/tap on the card or logo to apply or open an account! I love all of these companies and cards, but I put my favorites at the top.

I've been really impressed with the ease of use, speed of money availability, and all the benefits of joining SoFi. My favorite is being able to withdraw foreign currency ATMs in other countries with no fees. Highly recommend!
Yotta is a new savings account with a gaming aspect! Depending on how much you deposit, and how many friends you invite, you get a certain number of tickets each week. These tickets consist of numbers, like a lottery ticket. There are drawings every night at 8pm Central. You can win up to $10 million, although getting a dollar and some change is more common. Still, the prize winnings in addition to the 0.20% interest rate makes this a decent option for those seeking a higher-than-average interest online savings account who also enjoy the little adrenaline shots of waiting for the winning numbers to pop up each night.
We'll both get 100 tickets to win up to $10,000,000 when you download Yotta Savings! Just sign up with code ERIN14 : https://withyotta.page.link/ttQpYdrd46YGFKx26
