Adulting 101

The only thing that says “I’m an adult” more than financial responsibility is a flight of wine and a plate of expensive cheeses. Bring all three of these elements together, as we did at our Adulting 101 event, and oh boy, it’s on! We were featured! Reach for the sky!  If you haven’t already heard of our Level Up program, it’s something we think you’ll want to know about. © 2015 Mogo Finance Technology Inc. All rights reserved.

Mogo Level Up Program

Unlike some of the other players in our field of fiscal relations, we take the position of umpire and coach, calling the shots fair and simultaneously steering you towards hitting your financial homerun.   While most credit cards penalize you by raising your rate if you miss a few payments, we actually reward you for your good payments. If you haven’t already heard of our Level Up program, it’s something we think you’ll want to know about. At Mogo we’re constantly looking for ways to make it easier to help people get in control of their financial health. We think our New Level Up program is perhaps our biggest step yet towards this goal.  While Level Up is highly unique, it’s also very simple to grasp. When you apply for a Mogo loan, we leverage data to approve you for the best rate possible based on your personal situation.  So if you qualify for a rate of 5.9%, that’s what you’ll get.  This rate corresponds with a specific Level that you start at.  While most credit cards penalize you by raising your rate if you miss a few payments, we actually reward you

How to Trick Your Brain to Stop Buying Cr*p You Don’t Need

We all buy crap we don’t need. The problem is, most of us get smacked upside the head by our load of debt and our brain still doesn’t get the memo that we’ve been spending like we’re on tour with Drake. But how can I stop myself from swiping my credit card for yet another new pair of kicks when I find the last pair of Stan Smith trainers in my size?... you might be thinking. That’s right. You might be shocked to realize it’s not H&M’s socially responsible attitude that keeps you coming back, but a few simple, trickster strategies. Watch out for: red tagged clothing racks that trigger your brain to take action, roadblocks that navigate you in the direction of irresistible temptations, and classic upbeat tunes that trigger dopamine – and perhaps release an anchored memory of your last champagne shower in Vegas – making you feel sexy and happy, and encouraging you to spend, spend, spend. This part is going to freak you out, but it’s a solid tactic to push you towards the realization that you’ve been stockpiling useless garbage, probably for the better part of

Uncreditcard Your Life in Four Steps

It takes about 3 minutes only to check your rates USE YOUR OWN MONEY Credit cards have made it too easy to spend money you don’t have.  We separated the card from the credit, so you still get the convenience of a Visa Card®, but without the debt. The quicker you move away from using a credit card, the

Don’t be a Jack…. Avoid Credit Card Aftershock.

Meet Jack- the overspender. Jack’s like a lot of us. He loves the convenience of his credit card but ends up overspending every month. He’s tried budgeting but can’t seem to stick to it. Like the average Canadian (who now finds themselves in over $27k in debt), Jack is suffering from the aftershock of overspending and too much debt. Jack is out spending money he doesn’t have and keeps thinking the reward points will more than make up for it. Whenever he wants something, he just charges it to his credit card and has no real idea of what he can afford. Every month he opens his credit card statement and is shocked to find out how much he owes. He tries getting in control by sticking to his debit card but that doesn’t seem to work. Get the best reloadable prepaid card With many designs to choose from, the MogoCard is a Prepaid Visa® Card that gives you the convenience of a credit card with the control of a debit card. But unlike a debit card, there’s no monthly fee and no risk of overdraft or NSF fees. You load it with your
