Best checking accounts 2018
Rasha Ali USA TODAY Updated 6:02 AM EDT Jul 26, 2019 Most of us probably zone out during our employer's health benefits presentation. By the time we get to the health savings account (HSA) slide, we're either half asleep or thinking about lunch. Or, we just plain don't understand the purpose of putting money into a separate account that we think can only be used for doctor's visits and medical emergencies. Guess what? You can use your HSA money for a lot more than emergency room visits. We're talking everything from sunscreen and contact lens solution to baby monitors and wheelchairs. "You can also use it for flu shots...drug prescriptions and even over-the-counter medicine like Sudafed," says Chris Hogan, author of "Retire Inspired: It’s Not an Age; It’s a Financial Number." "I would go and buy cold medicine (and) things of that nature during the fall getting ready for the winter and just use my HSA card when I buy it," he added. … [Read more...] about HSA accounts can be used for way more than you think
Google Pixel 3A XL €479Google's new mid-range smartphone is the most impressive new phone in this category launched so far this year. Its camera is superb, its operating system is top-notch and the overall package is something that is on par with some flagship models. Indeed, it's hard to see why someone would buy Google's own high-end Pixel 3XL when this costs half the price. Other than its price, the Pixel 3a XL's biggest draw is its 12-megapixel camera. Google appears to have put its premium lens system (which is excellent) into this mid-range device. The results are absolutely superb, with one caveat, Its overall 'computational photography' system is second to none. What this means is that it uses a lot of tech to figure out what you're trying to photograph and deliver the right balance of tones, colour, sharpness and so on. In the hundreds of test shots I took, there was consistently the right effect applied for natural, vivid, but not oversaturated or processed, photos. … [Read more...] about Tech Review: Best mid-range phones
“I STARTED THE business because I love milk tea myself,” says Peng Yuxia. Meet the Cow, her shop in Hangzhou, 200km south-west of Shanghai, sells the cassava-based hot drink, also known as bubble tea, to passers-by—and, increasingly, to customers who pre-order on their phones. Recently she signed up to a small-business programme run by Ant Financial, China’s biggest fintech firm, which has its headquarters nearby. Now customers can order in advance from within Alipay, Ant’s payment app, and she has seen total numbers rise from about 50 a day to nearer 70. Payment is by scanning a QR (quick-response) code—so easy, she says, that a mother getting a pedicure next door can send a child in to order with her phone. In another part of Hangzhou, Zeng Ping’en looks around his electric-moped shop with pride. A loan from MYbank, Ant’s digital bank, helped with the cost of redecoration. Applying took just a few minutes, he says: “A click on … [Read more...] about Young people and their phones are shaking up banking
