#329 Marcus by Goldman Sachs


We're keeping this blurb here for a while as a reminder that there's a new place for Jill on Money content - YouTube!  Seems like a no-brainer, but sometimes it takes a little outside help (h/t to JOM friend, Joe A!) to recognize the obvious.  So don't freak out.  Going forward, we're going to put all our radio and podcast content on YouTube! It'll be easier for you to navigate and listen to past shows, because everything will be in one place.  Just click any of the links below and you'll be able to listen to this week's show as well as anything else you see that might interest you, including all the Better Off podcast content if you haven't been listening. Let us know what you think by emailing us at askjill@jillonmoney.com.


June 24 Download Hour One Here

In hour one, we started with Steve from Minnesota who is about to become a millionaire!!!  Steve and his wife already have $750k saved in various accounts...and now, thanks to his ESOP plan, Steve will soon receive an additional $860k! To take advantage of this life changing event, Steve wanted to check in with us to make sure he's on the right track and not making any missteps along the way.

After Steve we chatted with Paul from Nebraska whose wife is about to inherit $200k.  And just like Steve, Paul isn't sure what they should do with it, hence his call to the show.


June 24 Download Hour Two Here

In hour two we were joined in studio by Harit Talwar and Dustin Cohn from Marcus by Goldman Sachs, two of the names behind the bank's newest offering. Named after Marcus Goldman, one of the firm’s founders, Marcus by Goldman Sachs relies on the strength and heritage of a 147-year-old financial institution to provide credit-worthy consumers with a transparent and simple approach to consolidate their high-interest credit card debt.

We field questions all the time from people with debt who are struggling to keep their heads above water.  This could be a good option if you find yourself in a similar situation.  Depending on your credit score, you could potentially refinance your debt with Marcus, at a rate as low as 6.99%.  That sure beats the double-digit rates you're likely paying to your credit card company.

Some of the other benefits include:

  • No fees.
  • Fixed rates throughout the term of the loan.
  • Choice of monthly payment date and payment options, designed to fit your budget.
