Extras

Hello! Welcome to the ‘Extras’ section of the website. If you want to know about money stuff – this is a great place to start! Every week on Andover Radio, I will be giving my ‘Top Tip of the week’ which I will then expand on, right here. I will also randomly blog on things that come to mind, items which are seasonal, things that get discussed at a meeting perhaps, a hot topic that’s discussed on social media website and anything money or business related. Always happy to take suggestions, feel free to head to the ‘contact us’ section, which you will find on every page of this website and please remember that I have a ‘its The Money Guy group’ on Facebook, click here to join and we often discuss lots of different subject matters – as well as heads up on vouchers, discounts, codes etc.

Switch Your Current Account To Save Money & Make You Happy!

Author: Adam Phillips   |   Date: 9th November 2019

With large organisations, it seems like they’ve been around for years, in fact – you probably have been with them for years, your parent used to bank with them so you started to bank with them, my grandad banked with them…You now have this odd feeling of loyalty, you feel compelled to stay with the bank because…’you know – you’ve been with them for years’.

This of course IS NOT AN EXCUSE! Don’t be with someone, just because, that’s not a reason at all. Banks are ripping you off, either financially or customer service wise.

If you’re not happy with your bank, or perhaps, they just don’t give you anything for banking with them, CHANGE TODAY! There are some great deals to be had and some banks customer service is superb.

Get a Bank Account Young

Author: Adam Phillips   |   Date: 3rd December 2018

Starting the world of banking at a young age is great for practice, after all – you won’t be taught in school how to handle money. Seems like one of those worldly pieces of advice that your mum or nan might tell you – ‘Save now, whilst you can.’ No wiser words would have been spoken!

Getting in the habits you’ll need for life is essential, it’ll help you better understand the system by the time you get around to full time work. The only thing you can’t do is borrow money until the age of 18. But how would having a bank account at a younger age help? Read on to find out.

The ‘PayPal’ Scam

Author: Adam Phillips   |   Date: 8th November 2018
Tags:

PayPal is a very reputable company who wouldn’t try to steal information from you. They possess one or several bits of your personal information, including card details, account details, personal information and possible information about your business.

What happens if they suddenly email you saying that your account has been stopped and you need to log in for further info – STOP!! This could be a scam.

The Truth about a Direct Debit

Author: Adam Phillips   |   Date: 11th June 2018
Tags:

A Direct Debit is a fantastic way to make a payment, they are one of the safest way to pay a reoccurring bill, plus, you usually get a discount by settling your bill in this way, not to mention the fact that you don’t have to remember to do anything, it’s automatic (you do have to make sure you have the money in your bank account though!) Additionally – you also have an insurance policy against it! (Sort of…)

Some people really don’t like direct debits, so I’m going to try and set the record straight and iron out any myths about Direct Debits.

What is a scam?

Author: Adam Phillips   |   Date: 15th May 2018

Scams are everywhere, unfortunately its part of life now. Everyone knows someone who has fallen short of a scam. Its a shame that we’ve all had that phone call asking us to put on our computer because there is a fault with the Windows laptop (That we don’t possess!) or the email saying our account has been blocked from the bank (that we don’t bank with)

It’s our problem to try and figure out what is real – what is not. Who is genuinely trying to help and who is genuinely trying to strip us of our money/credentials or data.
