Sponsor Free Site to Help You Manage Money

Boot Camp feature for Monday, June 21, 2010

A sponsor free site to help you manage your money. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Finding financial guidance information online is easy. The hard part is getting info that isn't influenced by paid advertising. That's where a site called HelloWallet.com aims to be different. With backing from Jean Case and AOL founder Steve Case, the site was founded by former Brookings Institution consumer finance scholar Matt Fellowes...


"We have a personal bank shopping service where we look at about 11 thousand different banks or 130 thousand different deposit products and pro-actively identify savings opportunities for people. Another type of service we provide is helping people figure how much their goals are going to cost and then we'll automatically update them when they need to make changes to those goals to stay on track."


HelloWallet.com's services cost about five dollars a month...after a sixty day free trial. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
