We'll cut to the chase.

Finance startup Aspiration wanted to create a bank account that, simply put, kicks other bank accounts' ass.

And, damn, did they. Aspiration's Summit Account offers a 1% interest rate. That's 100x more than what you typically get from a big-bank checking account. So if you had $10,000 in your account, you'd earn $100 on it instead of just a few dollars. That's huge.

What's more, you'll never sweat ATM fees again. Aspiration provides unlimited ATM fee reimbursements anywhere in the world. Whether it's a trip to Los Angeles or to London, you're covered.

Even if you're not ready to switch banks completely, these perks are worth opening up an account just to experiment with.

Aspiration's goal is to help everyone do better in life. So, not only do they put more money in your pocket, but they also donate 10% of everything they earn to charities actively expanding economic opportunity. They even make it possible for you to give a portion of your profits to the cause of your choice. "Do well and do good." That's their motto, and that's their mission.

Whether you're in the market for a brand new bank you can trust or looking for a supplementary account with high yields, Aspiration is worth checking out.

We start with the good. FNV was launched by Partnership for a Healthier America along with a collaboration of companies, celebrities, athletes and organizations that to increase consumption of fruits and vegetables.

The Food Network Wants To Deliver Your Dinner: It’s Instacart’s same day deliver model based on recipes on Food Network’s website. Find a recipe you like, add ingredients from that recipe to your Instacart shopping cart, select a delivery time, and an Instacart Personal Shopper will deliver the items later that same day. 

While it may sound like another meal kit delivery service, it’s different. The ingredients aren’t pre-measured to that recipe, and it doesn’t come with step-by-step ingredients. So it’s not as simple, or as cheap as services like Blue Apron or HelloFresh. But you can have it within hours instead of waiting.
