Aspiration: 2% interest, no-fee banking, $50 signup bonus, & more

Aspiration

Ok, so this isn’t a deal or a sponsorship, so it doesn’t neatly fit in a category. But it is an awesome app and it does save you money; since MDM Deals is about both of those things, my scheduled sponsor had to delay, and the service has a $50 sign-up bonus promotion right now, I figured I’d share Aspiration with you!

As many of you know, my family and I moved overseas  a few months back and it’s been wonderful. What you may not know is that it wrecked havoc on our banking. I’ll spare the details, but I had to search for a new bank and, after trying out a bunch, I settled on Aspiration and have been super happy with them. Here’s just a few reasons I chose it and why you ought to check it out:

  • 2.00% APY interest. I’m not kidding that the interest rate is about 100 times more than my previous bank gave me. Just deposit at least $1 into the account each month to get 2.00% interest. That simple.
  • Choose-your-own fee. Seriously. Pay what you think is fair–including nothing–so there’s nothing to lose by signing up and giving it a whirl.
  • No ATM fees worldwide. For an ex-pat like me, that’s a must. But for everyone else–seriously, do you wonder why other banks charge you to get your own money out of your own bank? Aspiration is refreshing.
  • Mobile-first – Unlike some services where it’s clearly brick-and-mortar first and app-as-an-afterthought, Aspiration is first and foremost, and it’s exactly what you’d expect it to be.
  • More! Like cash-back debit purchases. But those were the big things that made me switch over my MDM Deals banking* and I’ve been very happy. 

From now until June 30th–just a few days–when you sign up via my referral link, we’ll both get a $25 referral bonus and be able to donate $25 to a cause of our choice. Whether you just want to support my work, give Aspiration a trial spin, or move over all your banking like I did, check out Aspiration bank today!

P.S. At first the no-fee service made me nervous, because I didn’t want to bank with an unsustainable business model. They’re FDIC ensured, so that’s not a huge risk–but then I saw how they charge for other services and that’s where they make their money. Then I worried they’d spam you to sign up for those other services–but they don’t! They’re really respectful.

*Note: I don’t know if Aspiration currently supports business accounts, but since MDM Deals is still a sole proprietorship, it doesn’t make a difference. I just use separate personal & business banks for ease of financial records and accounting.

Giveaway: Open In Webmail – easily open mail links in your webmail of choice [sponsor]

 

Open-in-webmail

 

I’ve recently moved away from using the Mail app on my Mac, instead using webmail. There’s some great benefits to doing that–security, privacy, etc.–but there’s some limitations of it as well. I was so excited when I found this week’s sponsor, Open In Webmail, because of how wonderfully it fixes my main frustration. The developer is sponsoring a giveaway for MDM Deals fans, so make sure to read on to know how you can enter the contest!

One of the greatest limitations about using webmail is that hyperlinks to send someone an email (like this) just don’t work. If you click that link (go ahead, I’ll wait), it will open up your email app, populate the email address (seriously, did you not click it?), and even give you a subject line. Links like that are one of the most common ways to contact support because they’re quick, fast, and convenient.

Unless, that is, you use webmail. In which case clicking that link is a horrible experience–it opens up Mail, which then asks you to configure an account or it starts an email from the wrong account and you have to leave–and meanwhile you’ve lost the email address you wanted to use in the first place. If you’re technical, you can find the email address in the mailto HTML, but lots of people are up a creek and can’t contact the person they want.

And that’s why I love Open In Webmail. It’s a simple little utility that does one thing and one thing well: it opens email links in your webmail (and browser) of choice instead of the default mail app. In fact, behind the scenes, it becomes your default mail client so that all mail links automatically open in your webmail and browser of choice, no messy plugins or hacks needed.

Open in Webmail settings

 

Open in Webmail supports Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, Office365, Fastmail, Zoho, AOL, and Yandex–and it gives you the ability to create custom URLs that open so that if your webmail isn’t one of those, it can still work for you. Further, you can even choose which browser to open webmail in so that if (like me) you like to quarantine off your Gmail from the rest of your browsing, you can have mail links open in, say, Chrome, but do the rest of your browsing in, say, Safari.

Open In Webmail is the kind of app that you never knew you needed until you use it–and even when you use it, you’ll probably never open the app except for the initial configuration. Instead, it works silently in the background, making sure your mail links open properly, saving you time and frustration one mail link at a time. Open In Webmail is available in the Mac App Store for $0.99 and is worth every penny.

I’m thrilled to announce that the developer, Fred Potter, is sponsoring a giveaway for MDM Deal fans so that you can win Open In Webmail! I’ll be giving 6 codes to MDM Deal Patrons and another 4 to anyone who enters the drawing.
