The purpose of this disclosure is to explain how we make money without charging you for our content.
Our mission is to help people at any stage of life make smart financial decisions through research, reporting, reviews, recommendations, and tools.
Earning your trust is essential to our success, and we believe transparency is critical to creating that trust. To that end, you should know that many or all of the companies featured here are partners who advertise with us.

If the fleeting nature of National Coffee Day makes you sad, you’re in luck: 7-Eleven has just announced a week-long coffee giveaway from October 12 through 17.
To get your seven-day coffee fix—gratis—just download the 7-Eleven app on your smartphone and register with your name and email address.
Then, starting October 12, go into a 7-Eleven, open the app and go to the “Scan and Save” section. You’ll see a coupon code there for a “free hot beverage” that the barista can scan; a new code will appear each day for the week and you can get any size you want.
