These 21 Apps Will Prevent Your Spring Break Turning Into Spring Broke

If you’re a college student, the best part of your year is quickly approaching: spring break, baby!

Your goal? To have as much fun as you can.

But you know what can quickly put a damper on that fun? Worrying about money.

21 Apps That Help You Save Money on Spring Break

While you could always figure out a way to earn money during spring break, another strategy is to simply keep your costs as low as possible.

Put your money concerns aside, and save money on spring break with these apps.

Apps for Transportation

1. Hopper

Buy your flight now? Or wait? This old favorite takes the guessing game out of when to purchase tickets by analyzing billions of flights and telling you whether the price is likely to go up or down.

2. GasBuddy

Driving to your destination? Don’t leave home without this app. It lists the cost of gas at nearby stations so you can easily find the best deal.

(Want other options? Check out this list of apps that help you find cheap gas.)

3. Uber / 4. Lyft

Instead of paying for a taxi, get a safe (and cheaper) ride home with one of these services.

5. What3Words

Never get separated from your friends again.

When you’re in a new city with unfamiliar landmarks, it can be tough to describe where you are to your companions — especially if you’ve had a few drinks. This app aims to change that by dividing the world into 57 trillion 10-foot squares.

6. Parkmobile

In a big city or a beach town that’s littered with parking meters? Rather than digging up your quarters reserved for laundry, pay for your spot through this app.

7. Citymapper

You can save big by taking public transportation. However, that can get tricky — especially if you’re not used to it. Citymapper helps you plan trips from point A to point B the cheapest and most efficient way possible.

For accommodations, check out…

8. Airbnb

If you’re traveling with a group of friends, renting a house with Airbnb is both economical and fun. Check out these awesome places under $ 100 per night across the U.S.

And if your own place will be empty while you’re away, why not consider listing it on Airbnb and making some money while you’re partying?

9. Roomer

Want to book a hotel, but don’t want to pay hotel prices? Try Roomer. This innovative app allows you to book deeply-discounted hotel rooms from people who had to cancel their trips.

10. HotelTonight

If you’re really bad at planning ahead or find yourself in a pickle, book a hotel through HotelTonight. It promises last-minute deals for top-rated hotels.

11. Couchsurfing

If you’re down with staying on strangers’ couches, you can snag some awesome, free sleeping spaces. It’s a great way to meet other travelers and gain a local’s point of view.

For food and drink, check out…

12. Price Per Pint

One of the best ways to save money on food and drinks? Hitting up happy hour. But in an unfamiliar city, it’s hard to figure out where to go. Enter this app, which allows you to search by drink type, day, time and city for the lowest priced drink in your area..

13. Drizly

Because the bar can get expensive, you probably want to spend a few nights drinking at home with your friends. Use this app to compare prices at local stores and order booze for delivery.

14. Open Table / 15. Yelp

These two staples help you find nearby restaurants, peruse customer reviews and survey menus and prices.

For activities, check out…

16. TUN Student Discounts

Embrace your student status. Use this app to help you find all of the student discounts available in your destination.

17. Groupon

You probably subscribe to Groupon updates in your home city — but what about when you’re traveling? Though some of the discounts may only be available to local residents, you’re bound to find some great deals on tickets or activities in your destination.

For everything else, check out…

18. Whatsapp

If you’re traveling internationally, this app is a must. Don’t get slammed by exorbitant international data charges and keep track of your friends by using this app to text over WiFi.

19. Wifi Finder

You use a lot of data when you travel. Avoid going over your limit by connecting to wifi whenever possible; use this app to find hotspots near you. You can also find passwords, so you don’t have to ask your barista.

20. Cost Split

If you’re traveling in a group, figuring out who owes what can be a royal pain. This handy app does it for you, so nobody ends up unfairly paying more than their share. At the end of the trip, it’ll even email out a detailed report.

Then, check out these five money-sharing apps.

21. Noonlight

You can’t put a price on your safety. This app (formerly known as SafeTrek) has several features to give you (and your mom) peace of mind. Hold down the safety button until you’re safely where you need to be. When you get there, release the button and enter your pin. If you’re in danger, release — don’t enter your pin — and it’ll contact 911.

With a few downloads before you leave, you’re bound to enjoy your trip without breaking the bank. Appy Spring Break!

Judges Say Trump’s Shutdown Broke Immigration System for Years

Chip Somodevilla/Getty

President Donald Trump may be over, (for now), but immigration judges and attorneys worry that the record government shutdown’s disastrous effects on the immigration court system will last for years.

The 35-day government shutdown, ignited over Trump’s demands for congressional funding of his long-promised border wall, exacerbated the very immigration crisis the president claims the barrier would solve, halting nearly all immigration court cases and putting three in four immigration judges on furlough. Hearings on asylum cases, deportation, and appeals against orders of removal were delayed indefinitely, pending a “reset” upon the government’s re-opening that shuffled tens of thousands of cases to the back of the line.

The only way to solve the pileup, one prominent immigration judge told The Daily Beast, is to trade Trump’s demand for a 2,000-mile wall, and instead double the number of immigration judges to deal with cases.

Sarah Silverman and Michael Sheen Broke Up Because of Trump and Brexit

Alberto E. Rodriguez

Trumpism and Brexit are often said to have failed to bring people together, and now the twin votes are being blamed for shattering one celebrity couple’s love affair.

The British actor Michael Sheen has claimed that he and the comedian Sarah Silverman broke up because of their passion for politics, and it wasn’t that they disagreed.

Both, in fact hold similarly anti-populist views, but, in a new interview, Sheen says that he and Silverman parted ways because she wanted to spend more time in America engaged in her I Love You, America project, which challenges Trumpism, and he wanted to be engaged in anti-Brexit campaigns in the U.K.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle broke away from tour for a mini moon

These two!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set off on their royal tour this month, with the couple currently on the New Zealand leg of their trip, having already visited Australia, Fiji and the kingdom of Tonga.

But with a jam-packed schedule of official events and appearances, it’s hardly surprising that Harry and Meghan haven’t had much downtime – something they surely need, especially following the news of their future baby, expected in Spring 2019.

It has recently emerged however that the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex did actually escape for a mini moon on their tour and we didn’t even notice.

The royal couple reportedly took some time away during their royal tour of Fiji, escaping for a ‘mini moon’ at the Vatuvara Private Islands Resort on Kaibu Island, before returning to royal duties in Tonga.

Meghan has opened about her pregnancy during the tour, explaining how it has made her feel jet lagged, so here’s hoping she managed to catch up on some sleep!

Luckily, it looks like the mini moon did the trick, with the royal couple seeming relaxed and restored when they arrived in Tonga.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently in New Zealand – and people are talking about them more than ever, especially after Harry let his nickname for his future baby slip!

These two!

Here’s hoping they get to have another mini moon soon!

It should go without saying, but sending a rover to Mars is a challenging endeavor. Lots of things have to go perfectly right in order to pull it off, and one thing that can’t be overlooked is the parachute. Once the spacecraft reaches the planet and begins plunging towards the surface, slowing it all down becomes the top priority, and that’s a tall order when the rover itself weighs over 2,300 pounds.

Recently, NASA tested different parachute candidates, one of which will eventually give the Mars 2020 mission a nice soft landing on the Martian surface. It was called the Advanced Supersonic Parachute Inflation Research Experiment (ASPIRE), and it broke a world record.

Why hitting the lottery could leave you broke

How could you possibly go broke after winning hundreds of million of dollars? It’s a lot easier than you may think…

With Thursday’s Mega Millions jackpot sitting at around $ 900 million ($ 513 million if you take the lump sum), many people are wondering what life would be like with all that money.

How you could hit the Mega Millions jackpot and still end up broke

But really, what if money suddenly fell out of the sky and into your life? Maybe you win the lottery, or you get an injury settlement or maybe an inheritance. And while a $ 900 million jackpot is rare, there are all kinds of different situations in which you could be left with a lot more money than you’re used to.

When money shows up out of thin air, most of us have no clue how to handle it. And very often, it quickly burns a hole in our pocket.

Now the odds of winning big money have gotten even worse as lottery officials not long ago tweaked the Mega Millions and Powerball formulas so that customers have a greater chance to win smaller prizes instead of tens of millions of dollars, according to the Washington Post.

Be careful how you spend all that money!

Remember the so-called “Ocean’s 16” from Ocean County, New Jersey, who each won $ 3.8 million (after taxes) in an August 2013 PowerBall jackpot that grabbed everybody’s attention?

Well, that’s a huge amount of money. If it’s well-managed, it can provide comfort to you for the rest of your life. But therein lies the rub.

For most people who come into big money — like athletes or lottery winners — all of a sudden their wants instantly skyrocket. If those lottery winners back in 2013 gave into those wants, research shows they’ll blow through $ 3.8 million in just six years!

If you ever come into a large inheritance or sell a business and get a pile of money, restraint is key. I’ve long told people in this situation to blow 10% of it however you want. But the other 90% you treat as a nest egg to nurture.

History (and science) show money doesn’t equal happiness

Jack Whittaker, a millionaire from West Virginia, became a much bigger millionaire when he won a $ 315 million lottery in 2002. After four years, Whittaker was broke and had lost both his daughter and granddaughter to drug overdoses (which he blamed on the lottery winnings). In addition to all that, Whittaker was robbed of $ 545,000 in CASH, as he sat in the parking lot of a strip club. Whittaker said, in hindsight, “I wish we had torn the ticket up.”

According to NBC News, a 2008 University of California study that measured people’s happiness six months after winning a relatively modest lottery prize didn’t exactly produce the results you may have imagined. The study looked at those who won an amount equivalent to about eight months’ worth of income. The winners had taken the money in a lump sum. The study found that winning the money, “had zero detectable effect on happiness,” according to Peter Kuhn, one of the study’s authors.

It’s easy to say, but so hard for people to do. As for me, if I won that kind of money, I would change nothing. I would still get up and come to work every day. I would just think about what charity I could give it to! But that’s just me.

A final word of advice for future lottery winners!

Never take the lump sum payout. You’re better off taking the payout over years as a method of forced budgeting. If you worry your heirs won’t get all the money you have coming to you, buy a term life insurance policy that would pay them for what you would not receive if you die prematurely.

Remember, most of us do better with basic allowances than a huge sum of money right then and there!

Meanwhile, you don’t have to win the lottery or get an inheritance to come into extra cash. See some free and easy ways to search for missing money in your name.
