Hi!  I’m Josh Elledge, the Chief Executive Angel of SavingsAngel.com and welcome to the SavingsAngel show! I’m podcasting to you from hot and humid Orlando, Florida.

I am an extremely busy consumer expert, money-saving advocate, syndicated newspaper columnist, and the guy that turns digital entrepreneurs into media celebrities with UpMyInfluence.com. I love what I do and can’t wait to get going on today’s episode.

In order to help you save more, earn more and live more abundantly on today’s show I’ll be covering:

  • How to Keep Your Home Cool for Less Money
  • Have You Learned How to Invest in the Stock Market with Webull Financial?
  • Virtual Couponing with Swagbucks



How to Keep Your Home Cool for Less Money

It’s the same fight every year. As the temperature rises, so does your energy bill. To save, you need tips for how to keep your home cool for less money.

Tip #1Change your air conditioning and/or heat pump filter. Every HVAC expert will tell you to do this before anything else.

Tip #2Open the windows anytime it’s cooler outside. That way, when a full heatwave hits, you can afford to keep the house closed up.

Tip #3Use floor fans to circulate cooler air. Fans push cool air toward you and warm air away. All while costing a fraction of the energy required to run an air conditioner. Any day you can stay comfortable with just fans running, do it.

Have You Learned How to Invest in the Stock Market with Webull Financial?

For a while now, we have been discussing Webull Financial LLC here on Savings Angel. Webull is a top-notch platform for both retail trading buffs and enterprising newcomers. By leveling the playing field and revealing the tricks of the trade, even amateur investors have the opportunity to turn a hefty profit from the stock market.

By cutting down on the exclusionary jargon with equal opportunity tactics, Webull Finance is able to focus on delivering an incredibly effective and innovative platform. It offers a zero-commission trading platform with free granular market data. With the addition of fintech, Webull is able to offer free, in-depth market data, and real-time market quotes. To further smooth user-experience, clients are able to access live, customer service to answer all of their financial inquiries and help them manage their accounts.

Both old and new customers can benefit from Webull’s services: those making an initial deposit of $100 dollars or more get free stock worth anywhere from $4 – $1000 and long-time members who successfully urge friends to open a brokerage account will get stock ranging from $3 – $300–as will their friend.

Webull Finance hosted a paper trading competition. This mock stock-market allowed members to practice the steps of trading without risking equity and with the bonus incentive of prizes. The point of this competition is to prepare for a bigger, real-money trading competition in the second half of 2019. With the conclusion of the Webull Finance paper trading competition approaching, I asked the listenership to chime in with their experiences.

Overall, I think our viewership learned a lot through this exercise. Whether you stuck with tried and true methods or found bold, new approaches, engaging with the paper trading competition was great preparation for the actual stock market. Success or failure are both wins, for your growth as a retail trader.

Reviewing your efforts in the competition, I hope those of you who succeeded remember those strategies for the real deal and those of you who struggled to revamp your approach for the cash prize.

To learn more about Webull and join in on their trading competition, please visit www.webull.com or download their app in your favorite App Store! That’s W-W-W (dot) W-E-B-U-L-L (dot) com.
