New Year, New Finances

YourUpdateTV

With the new year underway, it’s a great time to make some financial resolutions to help manage your money. In an increasingly digital world, it’s now more important than ever to harness the power of digital tools so you can level-up your financial journey in the year ahead. Recently, personal finance expert, Farnoosh Torabi, teamed up with Capital One and YourUpdateTV on a nationwide satellite media tour to share tips and digital banking resources to help consumers across the nation get set for financial success in the year ahead. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/8FpRQjEfQvc Shopping Smart When it comes to finances, the first place to look is your last few credit card statements, said Torabi, who recommends scrutinizing every purchase to make sure they fulfill a need. And, as we rely more and more on our phones for digital transactions, it can be easy to make impulse purchases, she said. According to Torabi, small behavioral shifts, like avoiding late-night spending, can help you mindfully shop and avoid unnecessary purchases. When you do shop, shop smart. Searching for discounts and coupons is one easy way to save, and, luckily, there are great digital tools out there that can do the work for you. For example, Capital One Shopping is an online tool that finds you better offers, automatically applies the best coupon code at checkout, and lets you know when prices drop on products you’ve viewed and purchased. The best part is it’s free and accessible for anyone in the U.S. via a browser extension download or mobile app on your phone. Getting Organized for Tax Season With tax season just around the corner, it’s never too early to get organized so you can get prepared and maximize your return. Torabi recommends filing your taxes online or by using a tax software to avoid costly errors. This is another great time to take advantage of digital tools like Eno, the intelligent assistant from Capital One, which is available to customers via text, email, mobile app and online. Eno proactively sends customers a personalized year-end summary of possible charitable donations made with their Capital One card so they can see what might be eligible for tax deductions. Protecting Yourself Online Protecting your personal information is paramount, which is why Eno creates virtual card numbers to disguise and protect your actual credit card number when making online purchases. You simply install the browser extension, and next time you’re checking out, you’ll be provided with a unique virtual card number specific to that site. And, it’s worth the reminder, said Torabi – do your research! If a site is new to you, glance at the Better Business Bureau or do a quick online search to make sure it’s a reputable merchant. If it feels too good to be true, it probably is!

As a Contributing Editor to Oprah Magazine and NextAdvisor, host of primetime series for CNBC and creator of the Webby-nominated podcast So Money, Farnoosh has become our favorite go-to money expert and financial friend.
