Looking to End Paycheck to Paycheck Misery?

"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" - Mary Oliver

According to a 2017 report by employment website CareerBuilder, approximately 4 out of 5 Americans live paycheck to paycheck. As COVID-19 effects millions of jobs, and the economy, past financial choices are being felt these days more than ever before. It is our hope that during this slow-down in our activities, we take some time to reflect upon spending choices and decide to make more thoughtful financial choices in the future, including considering making use of new apps that can help you end paycheck to paycheck misery.

Consumers make heavy use of credit, relying on future income, and cash on hand, to cover today’s spending. Their progression to better financial choices seems thwarted by offerings that do not seem to care about helping them change bad financial habits. Many offerings make no effort to help consumers increase their understanding of the effects of their choices or to help them move forward in their financial lives.

That is why GiraffeSpot is delighted to have found Credit Sesame’s new offering, Sesame Cash.

Sesame Cash is an app that allows you to manage your credit and your cash in one place.

Credit Sesame was built to help consumers improve their credit scores, increase their approval odds, lower their cost of credit, and to save money. Since inception they have helped millions.

With the introduction of Sesame Cash, Credit Sesame will make even more use of their AI to also help consumers:

  • manage when and how they utilize their cash
  • monitor and understand the effects of their spending choices on credit

Credit Sesame will have more data on consumers to allow them to suggest increasingly customized credit options to them.
