FYI, Self Care For Your Finances Is a Thing

This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% our own.

Not to @ you, but we know college women double cleanse, tone, exfoliate and moisturize their skin like it’s their religion—but don’t give the same love to their finances. That’s why we’ve partnered with Aspiration to help every college woman make the most of her money with a Spend & Save account. Here, all the ways to ~self-care~ for your finances. 

  1. 1. Stop justifying impulse purchases with “it’s just a couple bucks.” 

    Grabbing a quick iced coffee here and there, impulse-buying a new lip balm in the checkout line (I’m looking at you, Leo’s), taking an Uber when the distance is walkable and throwing away $$$ on ATM fees here and there quickly adds up to hundreds—and in some cases thousands—of dollars a year. We justify impulse purchases by saying I deserve it, but what you really deserve is the unbeatable feeling of financial security, and you can get there with Aspiration. Aspiration helps you save hundreds of extra dollars a year by offering zero ATM fees worldwide, because spending money to access your own money is not cute. 

  2. 2. Earn ~free~ money with cash reward programs.

    If you could earn money for spending money, why wouldn’t you? Newsflash: you can. Prioritize debit cards that offer cash back rewards and you’ll earn moolah for every dollar you spend. Sign up for Aspiration’s debit card and you’ll earn *extra* rewards for shopping at sustainability-focused businesses. So that organic cotton robe you bought for your next self-care Sunday is totally worth it. 

  3. 3. Make financial choices that support sustainability. 

    Grown women make their own decisions, and they make decisions that support the environment. Improve your environmental and financial sustainability with Aspiration—your deposits will never be used to support Capitol Hill lobbying or oil pipelines, and the Aspiration app will help you track your personal impact on the Earth based on spending habits. Keeping your eco-footprint in check is just as easy as checking your texts. 

  4. 4. Protect your assets. 

    You use daily SPF to insure your skin against sun damage, so why don’t you put the same effort into protecting your financial assets? Deposits in your Aspiration Spend & Save account (a cash management account offered by Aspiration Financial, LLC, an SEC registered broker dealer) are FDIC Insured up to $250,000 per depositor by being swept to FDIC Member institutions.
