So, you’ve booked yourself a cruise on a big, beautiful cruise ship. Hopefully, you got yourself an awesome deal (if you haven’t booked one yet, read this blog post for the places I check for cruise deals) and you’ve budgeted out paying off the cost of the cruise, but, how much should you allocate for
The Bankwest Qantas transaction account is one of a very small number of Qantas Frequent Flyer Point earning cards that is not a credit card. So if you can’t or don’t want to get a credit card, it presents a way to earn points on all eligible card transactions as well as your balance. Now,
One of the big things we utilise our Bartercard membership for is travel. Bartercard is only available in a limited number of countries, and outside of Australia, New Zealand is one of the bigger ones. This makes it perfect for use when travelling.

I’ve blogged about Raiz (previously Acorns Australia) a few times now, and in some of those blogs, I make mention of ETF’s. Now, if I’m completely honest, I had to go and look it up myself to find out what ETF stands for and what an ETF actually is. It’s something that gets thrown around

I thought I’d share this one with you because it is exciting to see a platform like Raiz recognising the demand for socially responsible investments. Not only that though, but it also enables you, as an investor, to encourage the growth and
Let’s just say, it isn’t cheap, and you can only withdraw USD. If you think ATM fees in Australia are bad, think again. The ATM’s on board Royal Caribbean ships (or at least all the ones I’ve been on) charge a fee of USD$6.50. As far as I am aware, this fee applies to all cards.
I was blown away by the 2016 movie, Nerve. It follows the story of some high school kids, two in particular (played by Emma Roberts and Dave Franco), who start playing a distributed online game called “Nerve.” It has “players” and “watchers.” The “watchers” watch the “players” and come up with dares for them that
I signed up with when they first launched here in February 2016. Then, in late 2016, Acorns Australia added the “Found Money” feature to their app before later rebranding as Raiz. The concept behind this is that you get rewarded with bonus money in the form of cash back, for shopping with participating retailers. Generally,
