The Dime Roll: Compare Bank Accounts, Save on Engagement Rings, Video-Jackers, and More

August 12, 2016

This week in the Dime Roll we have a double dose of our “How Much?” series. First, we talk tailgating in anticipation of the upcoming football season, and then we take on how to protect your home without robbing yourself blind. Plus, as always, links to some of the best personal finance content on the internet.

If you love the Dime, do us a favor and share it with your friends. We’re always looking for new Facebook and Twitter followers, and don’t forget to forward the weekly newsletter to everyone you know who you think might enjoy reading. Thank you!
