Personal Capital Black FridayPersonal Capital is celebrating Black Friday with a $50,000 promotion. The first 1,000 users to sign up and link at least one account will get a free $20 gift card. The next 3,000 users to sign up and link at least one account will get a $10 Amazon gift card. The promotion will run until the $50,000 runs out, or until the end of Dec 1, 2014.

What is Personal Capital? Personal Capital is a free online money management tool that helps investors better understand their net worth, spending habits, and how their investment assets are allocated. There are many money management tools that focus on budgeting and spending, but the focus of Personal Capital is on helping you better manage your investments.

To do this, you link your banking and investment accounts to your Personal Capital account and let the system do the work (they use bank level encryption, so your information is safe). The free software then shows you how your assets are allocated and where you can make improvements. This has been an invaluable tool for improving my investment performance.

You can learn more about Personal Capital on our review page, where I write in more detail about their service.

How to get the Free Amazon Gift Card:

All you need to do is sign up for a new Personal Capital account and link at least one savings or investment account to the platform (new users only). This offer is only available at the Personal Capital Black Friday page.

Again, the first 1,000 new users to sign up and link at least one account will get a free $20 gift card. The next 3,000 users to sign up and link at least one account will get a $10 Amazon gift card. The promotion will run from 12:00 am PT on Friday, November 28, 2014 and expires at 11:59 pm PT on Monday, December 1, 2014, or until the $50,000 runs out. Offer is valid to any new accounts opened through the Gift Card offer page.

This is a win-win for new users. Personal Capital offers amazing value and can help almost any investor better understand his or her investment portfolio, and hopefully, identify areas where you can save money on fees, or rebalance your portfolio to better fit your needs. It’s definitely worth trying out – especially when you can receive a free gift card to do so!

Is It Worth It To Pay Movers?

by Miranda Marquit November 17, 2014

I think that paying movers just might be worth the cost. My recent cross-country move involved full-service movers, and it’s been awesome. This isn’t our first cross-country rodeo; it’s our third. In the past, my husband and I have used a version of self-service moving. We’ve used those “you pack, we drive” services in the […]

2014 Veterans Day Free Meals

by Ryan Guina November 10, 2014

Veterans Day is a day to remember and thank military members for their service in the armed forces. As a military veteran, it always humbles me to see the thanks given by so many people on Veterans Day. Though none of us served for recognition, it is nice (and humbling) to be thanked for your […]

Moving and Banking: Do You Change Things Up When You Move?

by Miranda Marquit October 27, 2014

I recently made the trek across the country to take up a new abode. I’ve researched the area that my family is moving to, and found that the bank that we currently use for all our primary money needs — and my business needs — doesn’t have a branch within 200 miles. This isn’t much […]
