Constantly thinking about saving more money? Put this on auto-pilot now with Worthy!

You have recurring automated payments for your rent, electric bill, and Netflix, right? That saves you time and worry. Now you can automate your savings and investing too. Worthy launched new features to help you do just that:
  • Buy Individual bonds: You can buy any number of $10 bonds on demand... just enter the number that works for you!
  • Recurring Investment: Want to put money away monthly? Just set up an amount you'd like to automatically invest.
  • Round-up: Fund your future with every purchase you make. Our app will round-up your everyday purchases to the next whole dollar and whenever this "spare change" reaches $10.00, a purchase of a bond is made. 
  • Do all three: Use all the above features simultaneously and maximize your returns!


What's going on?
GoBankingRates released a study where we saw a pretty scary statistic about Americans and their savings. About 42% of people have less than $10,000 saved for their retirement and 24.9% of people are struggling to pay their bills.

Why is it worthy of your attention? 
Worrying about money is one of the biggest stresses of our time. Having a plan is a necessity, but stress is optional. Instead, take action to ensure you don’t have to struggle through your retirement. Start thinking about your retirement plan as early as you can. While you might now have a big chunk of money to save, making a commitment to put a part of your paycheck away is a good start. Then make that money work for you by creating a diversified investment portfolio. READ MORE

What's going on?
Working from home is gaining in popularity, but most people still commute to an office. According to Gallup data release, about 4 in 10 workers say they worked remotely at least some of the time in 2016. How much do you actually save if you stay at home and does it really save you money in the long run? Moneyish compiled data to answer this question and the results are pretty convincing. 

Why is it worthy of your attention?
Working from home definitely has its perks - an extra hour of sleep and working from your own couch would be good enough for us. Aside from comfort of your own home, there is a very significant chunk of money that you save on gas and food. According to new data from SimpleTexting, if you work from home you will save around $444 per year on gas, plus reduce your car maintenance bill. In addition, Americans spend around $3,000 per year on coffee and lunch which you can reduce greatly by prepping your own meals and making your own coffee. If you looking to save some extra cash, working from home can be a great option for you. READ MORE
