Budgeting

Mint

While being simple to use, Mint is a very powerful tool. It easily lets me create a budget and keep track of everything I spend. The mobile app is a must for anyone who wants to track their finances on the go.

 

Credit Tracking

Credit Karma

Staying on top of your credit score is key, whether you are trying to build your credit history, or simply watching for fraudulent activity. I love what Credit Karma offers. It’s a simple look at your credit score with easy to read descriptions of what each part of the score means. This alone would be enough for me but on top of that Credit Karma also offers suggestions on how to improve your score as well as a credit score simulator.

 

Investing

Betterment

Betterment is relatively new to me. I was always skeptical of automating my investing. I quickly realized how wrong I was. With Betterment, it’s so easy to see exactly where your money is going and what it is doing for you. The fee structure is among the lowest in the industry and access to your investments on the go is a nice bonus. Plus both the website and the mobile app are simple to use and easy to navigate.

Hosting

namecheap

Shameless plug here. I love what namecheap offers. They are my one stop shop for domain names as well as hosting. Their pricing is comparable with the rest of the market, but their customer support is where they really shine. I’ve never had a bad experience contacting support. They respond within minutes and usually have any issues resolved with only a few emails. I couldn’t be happier with the service they provide.
