How to Start Trading Stocks for Free (and With No Minimum Balance Requirement)

Some of the links in this post are from our sponsors. We provide you with accurate, reliable information. Learn more about how we make money and select our advertising partners.

We all have that friend. The one who’s constantly checking the stock market like it’s a game and mumbling things like, “Ugh, I should’ve traded that yesterday!” You roll your eyes, but you also wonder: What am I missing out on?

Many financial experts encourage young people to invest in the stock market. Sure, it comes with risk, but it could pay out long term.

The only thing is… where do you start?

Lord knows you don’t want to ask that friend. Instead, you can start with as little as $ 1 and open fee-free account with SoFi Active Investing.

Investing for Beginners: Don’t Pay to Play

SoFi Active Investing leans into a “learn by doing” approach. That means you can experiment with buying and trading stocks — no fees and no account minimums attached.

If you buy something and immediately regret it? You can trade it seconds later. No penalty. (Honestly, it’s perfect for those of us with commitment issues.)

But maybe you have questions before you get to the whole buying and trading part… Take all the time you need to explore stocks through your SoFi dashboard.

For example, maybe you’ve heard everyone abuzz about Roku stock. Search for it on your dashboard, and you’ll see that SoFi has outlined the stock’s market price, its performance history and even recent company news hits — everything you need to know to make an informed decision is right there.

Pro tip: Add stocks you’re interested in to your SoFi watchlist. There, you can monitor their daily performances. Like what you’re seeing? Make a move as soon as you’re ready to buy.

If you want some human input? Reach out to a SoFi financial adviser for free via phone, email or chat at any time.

How to Open a Fee-Free Investing Account

Are you ready to give this whole investing thing a try?

Here’s how to start:

  1. Sign up here by clicking “Invest Now.”
  2. Connect your bank account. This will fund your investments. (There are bank-level layers of security, and SoFi won’t store your info, so you’re safe!)
  3. Ready to go? Click “Add Buying Power” to deposit money into your SoFi Active Investing account. Choose a one-time transfer or set up recurring monthly transfers. It’ll take up to four business days for this money to land in your SoFi account.

From there, invest the money from your SoFi account into stocks of your choice.

Don’t feel like you’re marrying these stocks. You can buy and trade fee-free at any time the market’s open, but remember: Some of the smartest investors suggest riding out the market’s ups and downs long term for the greatest gains.

Oh, and if you want to really get serious? Download the SoFi app. Then, when that friend starts talking about stocks, you can add your two cents.

Brainstorm Health: Free HIV Medication, J&J Ketamine Drug Price, Physician Suicide

Happy Friday, readers!

As we head into the weekend, a bit of intriguing news from the biotech world–drug giant Gilead will be donating hundreds of thousands of doses of HIV prevention drugs as part of a deal reached with the Trump administration.

“I’m pleased to announce that as a result of discussions between the Trump Administration and Gilead Sciences, Inc., Gilead has agreed to make a historic donation of HIV prevention medication for up to 200,000 individuals each year for up to 11 years,” wrote Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar in a tweet.

The treatment in question is a so-called PrEP drug called Truvada and, if actually enacted, could equate to several million bottles being given out to uninsured patients at high risk of contracting HIV. Truvada has shown to cut the risk of HIV transmission by well over 90% (if used regularly) among such patients.

Gilead’s deal with the administration is interesting for several reasons. For one, it’s part of President Donald Trump’s stated campaign to eliminate HIV in America. But it also hits on the reality that, despite Truvada’s existence, thousands upon thousands of patients who could benefit from it don’t have the financial resources to do so (it can cost close to $ 2,000 per month out of pocket).

It’s not a pure charity play by Gilead, though–the deal would only be in effect until the successor to Truvada hits the market. And that drug may eventually prove even more expensive than what’s already available.

Read on for the day’s news, and have a wonderful weekend.

DIGITAL HEALTH

DNA testing startups’ bumpy road. Bloomberg has a fascinating report on the shifting strategies among DNA testing upstarts as they grapple with the complications of a highly personal, sensitive, and regulated industry. The a la carte DNA testing platform Helix serves as a prominent example: Once envisioned as a company that would conduct genetic testing and then allow users to access various other companies’ services (whether for health or ancestry reasons), Helix is now looking to partner with health care providers who have more direct access to patients. (Bloomberg)

INDICATIONS

Johnson & Johnson criticized over ketamine depression drug price. Johnson & Johnson recently made history with an approved depression treatment derived from ketamine (commonly used as a party drug). But watchdogs are criticizing the company for what they say is unfair pricing. While the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) considered the drug, Spravato, generally effective, cost-effectiveness was another question (the list price ranges from $ 4,720 to $ 6,785 for the first month of treatment and $ 2,360 to $ 3,540 in following months). “Esketamine shows some benefits for such patients and provides an FDA-approved treatment for treatment resistant depression [TRD] that may be covered by payers; however, it is concerning to have an overpriced therapy where there is such need for treatment. Additionally, the similarity of ketamine to esketamine raises issues for all stakeholders about how to consider off-label prescription and coverage of a treatment that has not been as well studied but is being increasingly used for TRD,” said ICER chief medical officer David Rind in a statement.

THE BIG PICTURE

Why are doctors dying by suicide? A pair of physicians (from Canada) have co-authored a paper exploring one of the most vexing questions in medicine: Why do physicians die by suicide at such high rates? One of the more interesting observations laid out by the study authors is that doctors may consider themselves physicians but not patients, potentially eschewing the very kind of help they’d prescribe to others. (Reuters)

Dive Into Free Swim Lessons at the YMCA

Summer and swim lessons: They go hand-in-hand.

As soon as school is out, kids are clamoring to get in the water for fun, exercise and a break from the heat.

But learning to swim is also a valuable life skill.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, an average of 10 people die from drowning every day, two of them being children under age 15. The National Safety Council reports drowning is the second leading cause of preventable death for children.

Despite the stats, not all parents can afford to pay $ 40 a lesson (give or take) for their child to learn to swim.

“Seventy-nine percent of children in families with household incomes less than $ 50,000 have little to no swim ability,” said Lindsay Mondick, senior manager of aquatics at YMCA of the USA.

Since it typically takes several lessons for a kid to truly master the skill, swim lessons could end up costing parents several hundred dollars per child.

“As a penny-pinching mom myself, I know swimming lessons are sometimes one of those things that gets left off the list,” Mondick said. “But in my opinion, it’s the only recreational program that also has the ability to be a life-saving program.”

To help make swimming and water safety lessons more accessible, the national YMCA is providing funding for 33,000 children to participate in Safety Around Water programs this year at no cost.

Safety Around Water is a YMCA program that teaches children important water safety skills and basic swimming instruction. Approximately 1,200 YMCA branches across the nation are offering the program, Mondick said.

Throughout a series of sessions (typically eight 40-minute lessons), instructors teach children how to feel confident in the water and maneuvers they can use if they unexpectedly find themselves submerged, like treading water, turning to float on their backs and propelling themselves from the bottom of a pool to the surface.

Kids will also learn basic swimming skills and important safety information, like what to do if they see someone in the water who needs help. The classes are appropriate for beginning swimmers generally ages 3 through 12.

In addition to the money from the national YMCA, Mondick said many local branches do their own fundraising and partner with community supporters to run the program at free or reduced costs.

Some locations only offer the free lessons to children living under a certain income level or from a certain zip code or school district. Registration might be capped, and dates for lessons vary.

Check your local YMCA branch to find out if it offers this program for free in your area and for further details.

The YMCA also offers paid swimming instruction for children that goes beyond basic survival skills. Costs vary by location, but you may find the YMCA’s prices are lower than enrolling in a for-profit swim school or hiring a private instructor.

Mondick said the YMCA provides swimming lessons to an average of 1 million kids each year. She said many local branches offer scholarships or financial assistance to make its programs affordable for low-income families.

For other options for kids’ swim lessons at affordable rates, check your city- or county-owned pools.

20 Fun, Free Things to Do in Orlando (Because Disney Gets Expensive)

When you think of Orlando, you might think Disney.

That’s fair. Heck, I’m a native Floridian, and I thought that most of my life — until I actually moved to Orlando.

Sure, Disney is great and all, but the truth is The City Beautiful has a lot to offer outside the parks. And what’s better? There are plenty of free things to do here — things that don’t cost you hundreds of dollars just to gain entry…

20 Fun Things to Do in Orlando for Free

Whether you live here in Orlando or are planning your next trip, here are 20 free things to do.

1. Winter Park Farmers’ Market

Free things to do in orlando

Explore the local vendors at the Winter Park Farmers’ Market, hosted at the old train depot each Saturday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Note: The market is closed on every third Saturday in March due to the Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival, one of the oldest and largest outdoor art festivals in the country. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in town — and it’s free.

Afterwards, explore Park Avenue, which is laced with shops, restaurants, museums and theaters.

2. Lake Eola

Free things to do in orlando

Butting up to the heart of downtown Orlando, Lake Eola offers Insta-worthy views, a .9-mile walking sidewalk and some very large swans. (Really, they’re huge.) If you’re there on a Sunday, stop by the market.

Throughout the year, there are tons of free activities (like movie showings), so bookmark this calendar.

3. Lakeridge Winery

Free things to do in orlando

Want a real taste of Florida? And maybe a buzz? Lakeridge Winery & Vineyards rests on a 127-acre estate in Clermont, Florida, and serves award-winning wines. A tour and a tasting are free.

Keep an eye on upcoming events, too, like the free summer music series or the grape-stomping competition, which the kids will get into for free and will love.

4. Old Town in Kissimmee

Free things to do in orlando

Free to enter and peruse, Old Town is a retro landmark that offers amusement rides, souvenir shops and lots of food options.

On Friday and Saturday nights, secure a spot on the sidewalk, and watch muscle and classic cars make their way down Main Street.

5. Orlando Brewing

Free things to do in orlando

Embark on a free tour of Orlando Brewing, Monday through Saturday at 6 p.m. Once you appreciate where the beer comes from, start sippin’.

Pro Tip

If you want to do a beer tasting, check Groupon. You can usually find 50%-off deals for parties of two.

6. Big Tree Park

This park was once famous for The Senator, a 3,500-year-old bald cypress tree that burned down in 2012 due to a drug-fueled incident. (Long story.)

Although The Senator no longer remains (RIP), you’ll still find its memorial, as well as its 2,000-year-old sister tree, Lady Liberty.

Plus, there’s a nice trail and playground, and the shade will protect you from the Florida sun.

Pro Tip

If you’re planning an outdoor activity in the summer, pack plenty of sunscreen and bug spray.

7. Disney Springs

free things to do in Orlando

Formerly known as Downtown Disney, Disney Springs is a lakeside corridor of shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment.

You don’t have to spend money to enjoy the lively outdoor atmosphere. There’s also a water taxi you can take from one end to the other. Plus, parking is free, which is hard to come by in Orlando.

Bonus: You’ll find the Lego Store here, a wonderland of blocks that kids — and adults — will get lost in for hours. You don’t have to pay to play!

8. Cornell Fine Arts Museum

free things to do in Orlando

On the beautiful campus of Rollins College, the Cornell Fine Arts Museum holds more than 500 paintings and a whole lot of artifacts and archaeological fragments. Plan to stop by for a free 30-minute guided tour.

(Note: It’s closed on Mondays.)

9. Disney’s Boardwalk

Tucked between Epcot and Hollywood Studios, Disney Boardwalk transports you to Coney Island in the 1920s.

Relax a bit as you walk along Crescent Lake, watch the street magicians perform and take in the fragrant funnel cakes. Parking is free.

Pro tip: You can catch the Magic Kingdom’s fireworks display from here, too.

9. CityArts Factory

free things to do in Orlando

Tucked between Lake Eola and I-4 in a 130-year-old building, the CityArts Factory houses works from local artists, as well as international pieces — all rotated in and out each month.

Admission is free Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

10. Winter Park

free things to do in Orlando

Stop by the Winter Park Historical Museum (in the Winter Park Farmers Market building) to pick up a free walking tour brochure. On it, you’ll find 21 stops, including the Winter Park Railroad Station, Knowles Cottage and the Colony Theatre.

(You can find more walking maps on the City of Winter Park’s website.)

11. Celebration Town Center

free things to do in Orlando

This “perfect town” was designed by Disney and is lined with pastel-colored houses and white picket fences. Many people visit to take in the pleasant sights and walk around the lake.

The town’s center is host to a number of dining, entertainment and shopping options. Keep tabs on upcoming events, like exotic car shows and arts strolls.

12. Black Hammock Adventures

free things to do in Orlando

Black Hammock Adventures is situated on Lake Jesup, which is home to something like 9,000 gators (the largest concentration of ’em in the States). You also might spot bald eagles, wild boars, bobcats — you name it.

According to its website, you can view free gator feedings — depending on the weather. If you want to splurge, there are airboat rides, too.

13. Cocoa Beach

free things to do in orlando

The closest beach to Orlando is Cocoa Beach, which is about an hour away (depending on where you’re staying).

Parking for the popular Alan Shepard Park is $ 15, but Lori Wilson Park, right down the road, is free.

There’s even a dog park if your furry friend wants to tag along.

14. Fort Christmas

free things to do in orlando

If you decide to head to the beach, stop by Fort Christmas Historical Park on your way.

Built during the Second Seminole War, the site features a full-size replica of Fort Christmas and seven historical “Cracker-style” homes. Listen to video presentations before enjoying a picnic under one of the pavilions.

Check for free events, too, like the annual bluegrass festival in March and Cracker Christmas in December.

15. Kraft Azalea Garden

free things to do in Orlando

Pack a picnic and soak up the serenity this lakeside park offers. Then break out your bird-watching binoculars, and see what you can spot.

Pro Tip

The azaleas in Florida tend to bloom from late February to early April if you want a colorful show. If you miss that window, opt for one of Florida’s classic colorful sunsets instead.

16. Grand Bohemian Gallery

free things to do in orlando

If you *heart* art, stop by the beautiful Grand Bohemian Gallery — even if you’re not staying at the hotel.

Parking downtown might be tricky, but use ParkMe to find your cheapest option (like the $ 2 City Commons Garage).

17. Tasty Tuesdays

Free things to do in orlando

The Milk District (named for its proximity to T.G. Lee Dairy) is known for Tasty Tuesdays, a gathering of local food trucks each Tuesday, 6:30-10 p.m. Bring the kids — or your dog — and check out the live music and neighborly festivities.

18. Universal CityWalk

free things to do in Orlando

After 6 p.m., park for free, and take in the big lights of Universal CityWalk, which is comparable to Vegas — without the slots.

There’s also a fountain the kids can splash in. In the summer, keep an eye out for free concerts.

19. Chip ’n Dale’s Campfire Sing-a-Long

Saddle in fireside, and join these adorable chipmunks as you roast s’mores and warm up your vocals. You can even snap a photo and snag an autograph.

To save even more money, bring your own marshmallows and sticks. The shenanigans start at 8 p.m.

20. Spook Hill

If you really want to embark on an adventure, head south a ways to Lake Wales. Around 600 N. Wales Dr., you’ll find a sign marking “The Legend of Spook Hill.”

Pull over, and read the story, then follow the directions. Apparently, if you do it right, your car will roll uphill.

The TripAdvisor reviews are mixed, so don’t go too far out of your way for this local haunt.

Bonus: Wekiva Island

Enter this environmentally friendly oasis on the Wekiva River for $ 2 per person. Hang out dockside, or float around while listening to live bands.

If you want to get adventurous, you can rent a kayak, canoe or paddleboard; a half-day rental costs less than $ 40. When you get tired, stop by the Tooting Otter for a snack and a craft beer.

Pro Tip

Get $ 1 off beer and wine during happy hour, which runs 5-7 p.m.

Note: We know many of you like to resort pool hop. Unfortunately many hotels don’t appreciate it, so that’s why we didn’t include the suggestion. Get kicked out of your own free will.

14 Legitimate Ways to Get Free Money Online Right Now

The internet is a treasure chest of free cash — you just have to know where to look.

No, you can’t order money-tree seeds or buy a fully loaded cash cannon, but you can complete some quick and simple tasks to start making money online.

Free Money: 14 Places to Find Extra Money Online

There are a number of companies, websites and apps that offer easy money, so we scoured the internet to find the best — and most legitimate — ways to tap into that extra cash.

Ready to start digging for treasure?

  1. 1. Search For Unclaimed Money

    State treasuries throughout the United Sates have more than $ 43 billion in unclaimed funds, according to The New York Times. Just sitting around! Waiting for you to come play lost and found.

    There are a few websites that allow you to check for unclaimed property, including the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators and MissingMoney.com. (Beware of scam look-alike sites!)

    It takes less than a minute to check. The Penny Hoarder reader Kelli Howell heeded our advice, performed a quick search and found unclaimed money in her husband’s name — $ 56 from a “matured insurance policy.”

    Sure, it’s $ 56, but what an effortless way to tap into some extra money fast!

  2. 2. Invest in Good Causes, and Get a $ 50 Bonus

     Savannah Holley organizes money she got from the drive through banking counter at Mount McKinley Bank in Fairbanks, Alaska.

    Investing can be a great way to grow your money, but have you carefully considered which companies you’re willing to back? Their morals and values? You probably wouldn’t want to invest in a company that’s destroying our oceans or cheating the system.

    With Swell Investing you can invest in companies that are committed to clean water, zero waste, renewable energy or disease eradication, to name a few.

    Plus, when you invest $ 50 in one of these companies, Swell Investing will match you with a $ 50 bonus! Just use the code PENNY after making your initial investment.

    Swell doesn’t have any trading fees, price tiers or expense ratios. It charges a 0.75% annual fee — that’s about the cost of one coffee ($ 3.75) per year if you invest $ 500.

    Get started with Swell by signing up with your email address here.

    Disclosure: We have a financial relationship with Swell Investing LLC and will be compensated if consumers apply for an account and/or fund an account with Swell through links in our content. However, the analysis and opinions expressed here are our own.

  3. 3. Find Hidden Money in Your Inbox

    It turns out deleting your emails could be costing you money. Intrigued?

    One of our secret weapons is called Paribus — a tool that gets you money back for your online purchases. It’s free to sign up, and once you do, it will scan your email for any receipts. If it discovers you’ve purchased something from one of its monitored retailers, it will track the item’s price and help you get a refund when there’s a price drop.

    To save time, mom and blog manager Aimee B. does the majority of her shopping online — about 90% of it, she estimates. She stocks up on groceries, clothes and household necessities without leaving home.

    In the past two years, Paribus has found Aimee $ 1,315.41 in savings while shopping online.

    “It really is as simple as giving your email address,” she says. “It’s kind of a no-brainer.”

    Plus, if your guaranteed shipment shows up late, Paribus will help you get compensated.

    Disclosure: Paribus compensates us when you sign up using the links we provide.

  4. 4. Get Paid to Share Your Opinion on Survey Sites

    Jessica Warden walks through the city in New York, NY.

    Companies will pay you for your opinions when it comes to judging their brands and gauging your shopping habits.

    Survey sites are a great place to get money and gift cards through sign-up bonuses if you’ve got some spare time.

    Here are a few options we like:

    • MyPoints: With MyPoints, you can earn gift cards for taking polls and filling out surveys. Once you complete your first five surveys, you’ll earn a $ 5 bonus.
    • Survey Junkie: It doesn’t take long to earn points on this survey site. Take all the profile surveys to earn an easy 200 points or so upfront. Then, once you earn 1,000 points — equal to $ 10 — you can cash out for a gift card or cash via your PayPal account.
    • Swagbucks: This one is definitely a reader favorite. You can make money through surveys but also when you watch videos and answer polls. You’ll get a $ 5 bonus when you sign up and earn 2,500 SB (points) within your first 60 days. Then you can cash out for as little as $ 3 and get an Amazon gift card.
    • Vindale Research: This free online survey site offers some high-paying offers ($ 50 for one survey?!). Plus, you’ll earn $ 1 when you sign up. Hit $ 50, and redeem your earnings for a check or via PayPal.
  5. 5. Send This Company Your Junk Mail

    How many ads do you receive in your mailbox each day? What about in your inbox?

    The Small Business Knowledge Center is a market research firm that studies the way companies advertise via mail and email marketing — and it wants to see what you’ve been receiving.

    Sign up as a panelist, and start sending your qualifying junk mail in, via postage-paid envelopes. You can also forward your emails. You’ll earn points along the way, which you can redeem for a Visa debit card.

    The site says frequent participants earn up to $ 20 every six to 10 weeks — not bad for getting rid of your junk mail.

  6. 6. Invest in Cannabis and Get a $ 5 Bonus

    You don’t just want to invest. You want to invest in an industry you believe in. One that could take off and make money.

    You want to invest in cannabis, and now you can. You don’t have to have tons of money to invest in the cannabis industry. Using a micro-investing app like Stash, you can invest in increments as little as $ 5.

    Need a nudge? Right now, The Penny Hoarder is teaming up with Stash to give you an extra $ 5 after your first investment.

    Stash curates investments from professional fund managers and investors and lets you choose where to put your money. It offers more than 40 exchange-traded funds, including one for those who are already seeing green on the cannabis horizon.

    But it leaves the complicated investment terms out of it. You just choose from a set of simple portfolios reflecting your beliefs, interests and goals.

    Once you sign up with Stash, take a look at the app’s portfolio options, including one cannabis-related ETF, to find an investment blend that meets your goals. You can be as conservative or aggressive as you need to be.

  7. 7. Sign up for This Credit Card for a $ 150 Bonus

    If you’re not using a rewards credit card for everyday purchases, you’re missing out on free money.

    You just have to be sure you don’t get too carried away with those purchases — and that the card is paid off at the end of each billing period.

    Here’s an option we like: It’s the Chase Freedom Unlimited card. Its claim to fame? You’ll earn an unlimited 1.5% cash back on all your purchases. Plus, if you spend $ 500 in your first three months of opening the card (hi, groceries), you’ll pocket a $ 150 bonus.

    There’s no annual fee, and the cash-back rewards don’t expire.

    Get signed up — and 0% intro APR for 15 months — here.

    The information for the Chase Freedom Unlimited card has been collected independently by The Penny Hoarder. Opinions expressed here are the author’s alone, not those of the credit card issuer, and have not been reviewed, approved or otherwise endorsed by the credit card issuer. The Penny Hoarder is a partner of Credible.

  8. 8. Get $ 10 Now, Plus Cash Back After Each Grocery Run

    Albert Bell shops at Whole Foods in downtown Atlanta. Atlanta GA.

    Before heading to the store, search for items on your shopping list within Ibotta. Then shop.

    When you get home, snap a photo of your receipt and scan the items’ barcodes to get paid.
    Some deals we’ve seen include:

    • 25 cents cash back for any item
    • 25 cents back on strawberries
    • 50 cents back on frozen fruit snacks
    • $ 1 back on a box of tea
    • $ 5 back on a case of Shiner Bock beer

    Notice a lot of those aren’t tied to a brand — just shop for the staples on your list, and earn money!

    Ibotta is free to download. Plus, you’ll get a $ 10 sign-up bonus after uploading your first receipt.

  9. 9. Start an Automated Savings Account With a Free $ 5

    Been meaning to save money? An extra $ 5 to start your account would be nice, right?

    Digit is an innovative app that automates saving for you. Simply link it to your checking account, and its algorithms will determine small (and safe!) amounts of money to withdraw into a separate, FDIC-insured savings account.

    Bonus: Penny Hoarders will get an extra $ 5 just for signing up. Additionally, savers will receive a 1.00% bonus every three months.

    Using this set-it-and-forget-it strategy, one Penny Hoarder saved $ 4,300 without noticing — read his Digit review.

    If you need that money sooner than expected, you’ll always have access to it within one business day.

  11. 11. Find Savings in Your Monthly Utility Bills

    Finding free money doesn’t always mean digging up a treasure chest. You can find hidden money (ahem, savings) by negotiating your bills.

    Instead of sitting on hold, use Trim, a digital personal assistant that’ll negotiate your bills for you. We’re not just talking your cable bill, either. It’ll also negotiate your internet, cell phone, home security and XM radio bills.

    William Ellis, a Trim user in Ellettsville, Indiana, uploaded PDF copies of his Dish, Comcast and Sprint bills to Trim. That’s all he had to do — Trim worked behind the scenes, eventually notifying him of his savings.

    “Yes, anybody can call and do this,” Ellis points out, “but do you?”

    Curious how he did? Trim reduced his bills by:

    • $ 385.20 a year on Dish.
    • $ 800.18 a year on Comcast.
    • $ 80.04 a year on Sprint.

    Trim reduced Ellis’ bills by a total of $ 1265.42 per year.

    If Trim successfully negotiates on your behalf, it charges an upfront fee equal to 33% of your first year of savings, and you keep the rest. (Hey, Trim’s gotta get rewarded for its expert negotiation skills!) But that’s still a big chunk of savings.

    To get started, no need to pick up the phone. Just sign up through Facebook or with your email address, and upload your bills!

  12. 12. Earn a $ 300 New-Driver Bonus with Lyft

    Been looking for a new side hustle? A way to start making money on the side? Here’s an idea — and a way to get an extra $ 300.

    Try driving with Lyft.

    To be eligible, you’ll need to be at least 21 years old with a year of driving experience, pass a background check and own a car made in 2007 or later.

    Right now, Lyft is offering a $ 300 sign-on bonus to new drivers when you use code EXTRA300. Here’s what you need to qualify:

    • You must be approved to drive within 30 days of your application start date.
    • Once you’re in, complete 100 rides within your first 30 days of being a Lyft driver.

    And just like that, the bonus cash is yours. Easy, right?

  13. 13. Use an Automatic Cash-Back App

    hand raised against the sky with dollar bills

    There are a ton of ways to earn cash back on your day-to-day purchases, but here’s one that doesn’t require you to take photos of receipts, claim offers or watch long video ads.

    It’s Dosh. Download the app, link up your credit and debit cards, and go about your normal buying behavior. When you spend money at one of its connected stores, you’ll earn automatic cash back.

    Once you earn $ 25, you can transfer the money directly to your bank account.

  14. 14. Get an Easy $ 36 a Year If You Shop on Amazon

    Calling all Amazon shoppers!

    This is such an easy, passive way to rake in an extra $ 36 a year. ShopTracker, one of the leading public opinion research companies, wants you to share your Amazon purchase history. And you’ll be paid for every month you share!

    Enjoy Your Free Money, Honey! (Just Be Careful of Scams)

    Congratulations! You’ve made it through our list of ways to get free money.

    Now, want to go out and find some more money on your own? Just remember: The internet can be a scary place, so be wary of scams. To vet a “free money” opportunity like we do, take these steps:

    • Search the company or website’s name on Google. Read reviews, look up Better Business Bureau ratings, and sign up for scam alerts from the Federal Trade Commission.
    • Don’t offer your personal or financial information unless you absolutely trust the site. You should never have to pay money in order to receive it.
    • Give the company a call, and ask questions.
    • Be skeptical, and if something’s too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t think you’ll get paid $ 1,000 for taking a five-minute survey.
    • Peruse a site’s privacy policy to make sure your information isn’t going to be sold to other companies. (That might be why you’re getting all those junk emails and robocalls.)

    Overall, just be smart! Or the easiest way is to just keep checking back in with The Penny Hoarder to find more ways to earn free money.

Bravo Star Brooklyn Tankard Launches ‘I Am Free’ HBCU Tour To Combat Violence On College Campuses

Bravo TV star, singer and motivational speaker Brooklyn Tankard is no stranger to violence, depression and the realities of suicide.

The daughter of famed gospel jazz musician Ben Tankard and vivacious “Thicker than Water” cast member, has revealed many of her hardships on screen.

However, upon witnessing the recent rash of rapes, sexual assaults and suicides affecting people nationwide, she decided to do something, launching a powerful national tour – the I AM Free Concert & Convo, beginning on April 8th.

The I Am Free Concert & Convo will travel to over 20 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in 2019 to empower students, alumni, faculty and the community with knowledge to eliminate physical, sexual and psychological violence.

“I couldn’t sleep because I was seeing all of the violence on social media and on TV. I experienced a lot of violence as a young girl and nearly died as a result of a rape,” Tankard said. “I almost internally bled to death. After I pitched the reality show on Bravo and it was picked up and broke ratings, I told God that I promise to use my platform to empower others and provide solutions to violence. I wanted to help others to walk in their purpose. That is what the tour is about.”

The tour is supported by the White House Initiative on HBCUs, the non-profit Bridge DA Gap, and various national celebrities and speakers. Among participants are family members Ben and Jewel Tankard from BRAVO’s “Thicker Than Water”, Grammy nominated producer and artist Khao, international motivational speaker William Hollis and many other special guests. Panels will address depression, domestic violence, low self-esteem, finances and other ailments that afflict students nationwide; to educate them on solutions and to empower them to make important life decisions that will place them on a trajectory of success and purpose.

Tankard stressed that while many leaders talk about these issues, very little is done to truly address them on a wide scale.

“How can we really solve the issues if we are not really dealing with the core issue,” she said.  “It really comes down to learning how to have a mental paradigm shift and self-love. Love is one of the most powerful forces on the planet. I want to bring that on this tour. We are dealing with the entire person. The mind, the emotions, all of the above.”

The tour will kick off at Livingstone College in Salisbury, MD on April 8th and 9th. Additional dates and locations are listed on the website. Portions of the proceeds from each event will go towards providing resources to people who have been victims of violence.

For more information on the I AM Free Concert & Convo, visit https://www.iamfreetour.com/ or follow Brooklyn Tankard on Instagram at @queenbrooklyn and @IAmFreeTour.

Tesla may bring back free Supercharger access for a limited time to boost sales

Tesla Supercharger

Tesla is far from a company in disarray, but there’s no denying that Tesla management has waffled on a number of issues with alarming frequency as of late. Just a few weeks ago, for example, Tesla announced that it would be closing the majority of its physical stores, only to backtrack a short while later. Further, some of the pricing schemes and available vehicle configurations offered by Tesla seemingly tend to change with no rhyme or reason.

Keeping this trend going, a new report from Electrek relays that Tesla may bring back free Supercharger access for new purchases as part of a broader effort to boost sales. If you recall, Tesla this past-September ended its free Supercharger program for all new purchases.

10 “Free” Things That Cost You Money in the Long Run

Life is expensive. Between the mortgage, insurance, car payments, and unexpected repairs, homeowners have a lot of money going out. It’s understandable, then, that many are tempted to take advantage of freebies when they’re offered. But be wary: There’s a price to pay for everything—even the free stuff. Before you accept freebies, understand what you’re actually getting. Goods and services that you don’t have to pay for may not be up to standard or may come with sneaky fine print, or they may just cause more problems. So, while you might save money in the short term, in the long run you could live to regret your frugal choices. Avoid these 10 “free” things that are likely to end up costing you money.

Kim Kardashian just revealed her ‘psoriasis face’ in a make up free selfie

And she’s not the first Kardashian-Jenner to voice her skin complaints this year…

Kim Kardashian Diet

The Kardashian-Jenners’ image is perfection, from flawless skin to unrealistic hourglass figures, but this year, they seem to have been showing a more relatable side.

Yes, when it comes to skin complaints, even the Kardashian-Jenners aren’t immune.

Kendall Jenner has been very open about her struggle with acne and the skin shaming that comes along with it, criticised at last year’s Golden Globes for her acne, something she explained as difficult when growing up as a Kardashian.

View this post on Instagram

While there are much bigger problems happening in the world, suffering from acne for me was debilitating. It’s something that I’ve dealt with since I was a young teen and has caused me to feel anxious, helpless and insecure. As humans, I don’t think we share our insecurities enough because we live in a time where being “perfect” is the standard. We curate our life online and pick the pretty moments to post. I’d like to show a younger generation that not everything is perfect. Being insecure about my acne gave me thick skin but I wouldn’t ever wish that feeling upon anyone so after trying countless options, I found something that has been helpful in maintaining clear skin for me. It’s been a long journey but I’m excited for where my skin is now. I didn’t think I’d see the day where I would feel confident posting a makeup free picture. My goal is to open up a dialogue around skin positivity. ❤

A post shared by Kendall (@kendalljenner) on

‘That was also kind of a tough thing for me,’ she explained. ‘To look at my beautiful sisters with beautiful skin and be like, ‘Okay, well, why me? What’s wrong with me?”’

Older sister Kim however has posted an honest photo of herself this week on her Insta Stories, bringing attention to her psoriasis, a skin condition that causes red, flaky patches of skin.

Uploading two photos to her Insta Stories this week, Kim showed her psoriasis flare up.

But it’s not the first time the 38-year-old has opened up about the skin condition, with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star announcing in 2016 that she wasn’t going to hide her condition anymore.

‘Sometimes I just feel like it’s my big flaw and everyone knows about it, so why cover it?’ She explained. ‘I’m always hoping for a cure, of course, but in the meantime, I’m learning to just accept it as part of who I am.’

Yes, Kim.

3 Ways to Score a Free Vacation (Without Entering a Scammy Contest)

Where do you want to go on vacation? Disney World? New York City? Vegas? Paris? A sandy beach somewhere?

All of those sound awesome, but holy cow, are vacations expensive. You’ll have to pay for plane tickets or a serious road trip. You’ll need to stay at a hotel (or Airbnb). Add the cost of restaurant meals, maybe a rental car and admission fees for all those fun tourist activities you want to do.

Making memories ain’t cheap, but luckily we’ve got ideas for how you can afford it. If you can pull in enough cash through side gigs or passive income, your vacation will be basically free.

Here are three ideas:

1. List Your Place While You’re Gone

While you’re on vacation, you won’t be home. I mean, that’s sort of the whole point of a vacation, isn’t it? To get away. You leave your house or your apartment, and you travel somewhere far away.

Since you won’t be using your home, why not let someone else use it while you’re gone? You might as well try to earn some money by listing it on Airbnb.

Sure, you can always list a spare room if you’ve got one. But consider listing your entire place while you’re away. If you’re a good host with a desirable space, you could make some bank on Airbnb.

Just enter your information into Airbnb’s calculator to receive a free income estimate. Depending on how long you can list your place, you could make hundreds — or even thousands — of dollars.

Here are some tips:

  • Make your space available during high-demand times in your area. Think: concerts, conventions and sporting events.
  • Be a good host, and stock your place with the toiletries you’d expect at a hotel — toilet paper, soap and towels.
  • Be personable. A lot of travelers turn to Airbnb for the personal touch they won’t find at commercial properties.

Here’s our beginner’s guide to being an Airbnb host, starting with how to create your listing and set your price.

2. Use a Rewards Credit Card to, Well, Reward Yourself

If you’re not using a rewards credit card for everyday purchases, you’re missing out on free money — money that you could be using for your vacation.

You could use it on your trip. Use it to pay for your hotel stay or car rental or dinner out, to really get more bang for your buck. (Just make sure to pay off your balance each month to avoid interest charges.)

Here’s an option we like: It’s the Chase Freedom Unlimited card. Its claim to fame? You’ll earn an unlimited 1.5% cash back on all your purchases. Plus, if you spend $ 500 in your first three months of opening the card, you’ll pocket a $ 150 bonus.

There’s no annual fee, and the cash-back rewards don’t expire. We checked Credible’s annual rewards calculator, and it estimates $ 417 in annual rewards based on our spending habits.* (You can enter your unique spending habits and see what you’d earn, too.)

Get signed up — and 0% intro APR for 15 months — here.

3. Get Free Accommodations as a House-Sitter

What about staying someplace cool and getting paid for it?

Imagine sipping your morning coffee on a beautiful balcony looking out over the ocean. Later, you water the plants and clean up a bit before taking a dip in the pool. Oh, and you’re getting paid for taking care of this house.

It sounds too good to be true. Can you really find house-sitting jobs that pay?

Yes and no. Yes, caretaking gigs that pay a salary or stipend in addition to providing you a place to stay do exist. But no, there aren’t many that fit the description above.

Most house-sitting opportunities fall into one of these two categories: standard house-sitting gigs, or more demanding caretaking jobs.

Many websites list house-sitting gigs, and a quick glance tells you right away that not many people are offering to pay their house sitters much — if anything. Normally, you get a nice place to stay for free.

This might not sound like much of a money-making opportunity, but it depends on how you look at it. House-sitting could be a way to get free accommodations when you travel, cutting a huge expense.

Here are some of the online platforms where you can find the opportunities, along with their subscription rates:

  • House Sitters America ($ 30 per year)
  • Mind My House ($ 20 per year)
  • Housecarers.com ($ 50 per year or free limited membership)
  • Luxury House Sitting ($ 25 per year)
  • Nomador ($ 89 per year or limited free membership)

Some people make a lifestyle of house-sitting. Canadian couple Dalene and Peter Heck sold everything to travel the world, staying in other people’s homes. For eight years, they stayed in more than a dozen different countries all over the world, saving themselves tens of thousands of dollars in housing costs.

Now, think again about where you want to go on vacation.

*Annual Rewards amounts will change based on the amounts you enter. The monthly spending category names and definitions may vary among issuers, and categories may not align one-to-one.

Baseball Player Manny Machado Just Signed Sports’ Biggest-Ever Contract for a Free Agent

(SAN DIEGO) — All-Star infielder Manny Machado has agreed to a $ 300 million, 10-year deal with the rebuilding San Diego Padres, the biggest contract ever for a free agent, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the agreement was subject to a successful physical and had not been announced. Machado can opt out after five years and become a free agent again, the person said.

Machado’s deal, if completed, would be the second-largest in baseball history behind Giancarlo Stanton’s $ 325 million, 13-year deal signed with the Miami Marlins ahead of the 2015 season. Among free agents it tops Alex Rodriguez’s $ 275 million, 10-year contract with the New York Yankees from 2008-17.

Records may be broken soon. Free agent outfielder Bryce Harper could top Stanton’s deal in coming days or weeks.

Speaking at spring training in Peoria, Arizona, Padres executive chairman Ron Fowler said: “We do not have a deal with any free agent player. We are continuing discussions, and that’s all we have to say.”

Teams draw a distinction between an agreement subject to a physical and a finalized deal.

However, general partner Peter Seidler, without confirming the deal, said: “Ron and I, we love the city of San Diego, we love sports in San Diego, we’re also well aware of the history. There’s never been a championship … We as an organization, we want to completely change that. We want our franchise to win year after year after year. And we’re going to do whatever we can rationally do to make that happen.”

The Padres haven’t had a winning season since 2010 and haven’t been to the playoffs since 2006. They haven’t won a playoff series since the 1998 NLCS against Atlanta.

And they’ve had the city’s big league sports scene to themselves since the NFL’s Chargers moved to the Los Angeles area two seasons ago.

The Padres have been rebuilding mostly with prospects and draft picks, although they are making a stunning move early in spring training for the second straight year after reaching a $ 144 million, seven-year contract last February with first baseman Eric Hosmer.

Machado is expected to fill the team’s gaping need at third base. He began last year with Baltimore, was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers after the All-Star break and struck out to end the World Series loss to Boston.

With the 26-year-old Machado on board, the next big move for the Padres is expected to be the promotion of shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr., the 20-year-old son of a former big leaguer and the No. 2 overall prospect in baseball.

A four-time All-Star, Machado hit .297 last year and set career bests with 37 homers and 107 RBIs. A four-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glove winner, he has a .282 career average with 175 homers and 513 RBIs in seven big league seasons.

The Chicago White Sox were among the teams that pursued Machado.

“Still in a bit of disbelief. The one thing I can say — I just told Rick (general manager Han) this and I will tell Jerry (owner Reinsdorf) and our coaching staff and players — I feel we put our best foot forward. Jerry, in particular, really stepped up,” he said.

“If the acceptance of the offer that I’m seeing is true, then actually our offer had the opportunity for Manny to surpass that. But in the end we went after the guy and we didn’t get him. We’re disappointed but, hey, we are positioned . the reason why we were going after him in the first place is because we feel we are positioned to do some good things here going forward. We wanted to accelerate that to a large degree and that’s why we made the overture we did,” he said.

Machado also met with the Yankees, a team that had expressed concern over Machado’s remarks about hustling — not hustling, actually — during the playoffs.

After failing to run out a grounder in the NL Championship Series, Machado said: “Obviously I’m not going to change, I’m not the type of player that’s going to be ‘Johnny Hustle’ and run down the line and slide to first base.”

Machado tried to clarify his remarks after the season, saying, “looking back, it doesn’t come across how I meant it.”

Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner took notice of Machado’s initial comments, labeling them “troubling.”

“If we’re interested in any player, to sit down with them face to face and ask him, ‘Where did this come from? What was the context around the entire interview? Was there a point? How do you justify it?’” Steinbrenner said in November.

“Because that ain’t going to sell where we play baseball,” he said.

Free Admission to National Center for Civil and Human Rights all February Thanks to Coca-Cola

Admission to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights will be free during Black History month thanks to a grant from Coca-Cola. The Coca-Cola Foundation awarded a $ 1 million grant to the center, located in downtown Atlanta (and next door to the World of Coke museum).

The center announced the news on its website: “The grant will allow free admission for anyone visiting the civil rights landmark starting Monday, January 28 through the end of February. Visitors leave inspired and empowered to join the ongoing dialogue about human rights in their communities. In expectation of crowds, The Center will be implementing timed ticketing for admission. Timed tickets will be available on a first come, first served.”

“There is no better way to celebrate this exciting moment in Atlanta’s history than to give back to our hometown,” said Helen Smith Price, president of The Coca-Cola Foundation in a press release. “We are proud of our city’s remarkable civil and human rights history and are pleased to offer residents and visitors alike the opportunity to learn more about how diversity, inclusion, and unity are central to the story of modern Atlanta.”

Additionally, The Coca-Cola Foundation presented three $ 100,000 grants to Atlanta-area organizations dedicated to promoting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy: The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change; The Joseph and Evelyn Lowery Institute for Justice & Human Rights; and New American Pathways.

The National Center for Civil and Human Rights is a museum that opened in 2014. Its multimedia exhibits relay the story of the American Civil Rights movement.

The Coca-Cola Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Coca-Cola company. Since its launch in 1984, the foundation has awarded over $ 1 billion in grants “to support sustainable community initiatives around the world,” according to the foundation’s website.

Goodr Creates Free, Pop-Up Grocery Store for MLK Day

Goodr, a company that previously won the BLACK ENTERPRISE Tech Connext Pitch Competition is continuing to make a footprint in the community. The startup recently partnered with the Atlanta Hawks for a special volunteer service project as part of the Hawks court dedication at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation & Aquatic Center, just in time for MLK day.

Approximately 100 Atlanta seniors were invited to partake in a signature Goodr “Pop-Up Grocery” event, where delicious surplus food from multiple Atlanta grocery partners was available for free.

MLK Day

“In the spirit of Dr. King’s commitment to service, the Hawks are proud to partner with Goodr to provide a pop-up grocery store for seniors at the MLK Recreation and Aquatic Center,” said Andrea Carter, VP of Corporate Social Responsibility & Inclusion. “This added element to our MLK court dedication allows us to serve not only the youth who play on the court, but seniors who often times need additional assistance when living on a fixed income.”

Goodr is a sustainable food surplus management platform that leverages technology to reduce food waste and combat hunger. They have produced a variety of events to distribute surplus food to needy Atlanta locals in creative and uplifting ways, but the “pop-up grocery store” seems to be a fan favorite.

“It’s an honor to be able to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King through the service acts that Goodr performs each and every day,” Jasmine Crowe, CEO, and founder of Goodr told BE. “To be able to partner with the Atlanta Hawks and State Farm is a dream come true for a startup from Atlanta,”

Every product is free to the guests and they range from fresh produce to prepared deli foods to fresh-baked bread. Everything is picked up that day from local vendors and partner stores and brought directly to the event. Each attendee gets their pick regarding what items they want to go home with.

MLK Day

The Hawks have been dedicated to the community as well. Off the court, the organization has built a culture of inclusion, diversity, and innovation, all with a touch of southern hospitality. Their goal is to build bridges through basketball, whether by constructing and refurbishing courts in Atlanta neighborhoods, providing scholarships to our basketball camps, or participating in unique partnership events like this one with Goodr.

How to Watch the NFL Playoffs Today Online for Free, Including the Cowboys vs. Rams Game

The NFL playoffs are in full swing this weekend, with four games scheduled that will narrow the field of teams fighting for a spot in the 2019 Super Bowl on Sunday, February 3. The two NFL playoff games today (Saturday, January 12) are: Colts vs. Chiefs and Cowboys vs. Rams.

Both matchups are interesting. The Indianapolis Colts are arguably the NFL’s hottest team: After starting 2018 at 1-5, Andrew Luck and the Colts have won their last five games, including an impressive Wild Card playoff win on the road against the Houston Texans last weekend. Still, the 12-4 Kansas City Chiefs, playing at home with one of the league’s most potent offenses, are 5.5-point favorites to beat the Colts in the AFC divisional playoffs on Saturday.

The Dallas Cowboys, meanwhile, are easily the hottest NFC team right now. The Cowboys won seven of their final eight regular season games, and then edged the Seattle Seahawks 24-22 in the playoff opening round. But the 13-3 Los Angeles Rams have been one of the league’s best teams all year long, and the betting odds for the Cowboys vs. Rams game Saturday night indicate the Rams are 7-point favorites to win at home.

The TV broadcasts for the NFL playoffs are all being handled by free, over-the-air broadcast networks. So it’s super simple to watch NFL playoff games for free on TV. What’s more, fans can also live stream the NFL playoffs for free on their phones, or even watch NFL playoff games online for free on other screens. Here are all the details you need.

What Channel Is the Cowboys vs. Rams Game On Today?

What time does the Colts vs. Chiefs game start today? How about the Cowboys vs. Rams game? What channels are broadcasting the NFL playoff games today? And how about the NFL playoffs on Sunday?

Here’s all the info you need, starting with the NFL game schedule today, Saturday, January 12:

• Indianapolis Colts vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 4:35 p.m. ET on NBC
• Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams, 8:15 p.m. ET on Fox

Here’s the NFL playoff schedule for Sunday, January 13:

• Los Angeles Chargers vs. New England Patriots, 1:05 p.m. ET on CBS
• Philadelphia Eagles vs. New Orleans Saints, 4:40 p.m. ET on Fox

It’s very easy to watch NFL playoff games for free on TV today and Sunday. If you have cable TV or another pay TV package, it probably comes with local broadcasts of network TV channels, including NBC, Fox, and CBS.

If you don’t have cable, you can still watch the NFL playoffs with a digital antenna. A basic HDTV antenna costs around $ 25, and once it’s hooked up to a TV in most of the country you’ll be able to watch local affiliates for over-the-air TV networks such as ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC, as well as PBS.

Watching broadcast TV with a digital antenna is totally free, and comes in hi-def. What channels you get with an HDTV antenna in your home may vary, however, based on the strength of the antenna, its positioning in your house or apartment, and where you live.

How to Live Stream the NFL Playoffs for Free Today

To live stream NFL games —including the playoffs this weekend and the Super Bowl — on your phone, download the NFL App or Yahoo Sports mobile app. Both are free to download and provide free NFL game live streams on phones (and sometimes, tablets).

Either app will allow you to watch the NFL playoffs online for free on your phone. Unfortunately, the NFL App and Yahoo Sports app do not allow fans to live stream NFL games on smart TVs or laptops. You can’t use them to screencast games to your TV either. They work only with smaller screens — smartphones, specifically, and sometimes tablets.

How to Watch the NFL Playoffs Online for Free: Cowboys vs. Rams

If you’re hunting for another way to watch the NFL playoff games today online on a smart TV or another large screen, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes local broadcast TV channels in its packages.

In most of the country, the streaming TV services Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV include CBS, NBC, ABC, and Fox in packages, alongside dozens of other “pay TV” channels. Another service, Sling TV, includes local Fox and NBC stations in certain parts of the country.

The cost of these live stream TV services normally starts at $ 25 to $ 45 per month. But they are all available to new subscribers for free during free-trial periods that last about a week.

So you could watch the NFL playoff games online for free this weekend by subscribing to a streaming TV service and taking advantage of the free trial. You’d then have the rest of the week to try out the service before deciding if you want to pay up.

If you ultimately decide you do not want to become a paying subscriber, remember to cancel the streaming TV service before the free trial ends. If you miss the deadline, you’ll be charged in full for the first month.

How to Watch the NFL Playoffs Online for Free Today, Including the Seahawks vs. Cowboys Game

The 2019 NFL playoffs kick off this weekend, with two Wild Card round games on Saturday, January 5: Colts vs. Texans and Seahawks vs. Cowboys.

Both NFL playoff games on Saturday are expected to be close: The Wild Card betting odds indicate that the Texans and Cowboys — the home teams in both games — are favored to win, but only by a margin of 2 points or less.

The NFL playoff games this weekend are being broadcast nationally on a mix of channels: CBS, Fox, NBC, ABC, and ESPN. There are plenty of ways to watch the NFL playoffs — online or on TV — for free, and you can even live stream the NFL playoff game for free that’s airing on the pay channel ESPN (Colts vs. Texans).

Here’s all the info you need for how to watch the NFL playoffs for free in 2019.

When Do the NFL Playoff Games Start Today?

What channel are the NFL playoffs on during Wild Card weekend, and when do the games start? Here’s the NFL playoff schedule for Saturday, January 5:

• Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans, 4:35 p.m. ET on ABC and ESPN
• Seattle Seahawks vs. Dallas Cowboys, 8:15 p.m. ET on Fox

And here are the NFL playoff game times for Sunday, January 6:

• Los Angeles Chargers vs. Baltimore Ravens, 1:05 p.m. ET on CBS
• Philadelphia Eagles vs. Chicago Bears, 4:40 p.m. ET on NBC

If you have cable or another pay TV service that includes broadcast networks (and ESPN) in your package, it’s easy to watch the NFL games this weekend. All you need to do is find the appropriate channel and tune in. But there are also plenty of options to watch the NFL playoffs for free if you don’t have cable.

How to Watch the Seahawks vs. Cowboys Game for Free

Free, over-the-air networks have the TV broadcasts for Colts vs. Texans and Seahawks vs. Cowboys games today, as well as Chargers vs. Ravens and Eagles vs. Bears on Sunday.

You don’t need cable to watch these NFL playoff games for free on TV. All you need in most of the country is a digital antenna.

You can buy a decent HDTV antenna for around $ 25. Once it’s connected to your TV, it will function similarly to old-fashion “rabbit ears” antennas, allowing you to watch unlimited local broadcasts of major free networks, including ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, and PBS, in hi-def.

In most of the country, viewers can tune in all the major networks with a basic digital antenna, though which broadcast TV channels you get will vary based on the strength of the antenna, where you live, and where the antenna is positioned in your home. You may have to move your antenna around a bit to see where the signal is strongest for Fox, CBS, NBC, and other local channels.

How to Live Stream the NFL Playoffs for Free

The NFL App and Yahoo Sports mobile app allow users to watch nationally broadcast NFL games on a phone (and in some cases, a tablet). That means you can use these apps to watch the 2019 NFL playoffs in their entirety — including the Colts vs. Texans game, airing on ABC and ESPN — along with the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 3.

The NFL App and Yahoo Sports app are free to download, and the NFL game live streams are free as well. Take note, however, that the free live streams are available only on smartphones and tablets. So you can’t use these apps to screencast games to your TV, or to watch the NFL playoffs on any other kind of (larger) screen, such as a laptop or smart TV. Also, in some cases, the live streams may not work when you’re connected to Wi-Fi, so you may have to use up data in order to watch NFL games on your phone.

How to Watch the NFL Playoffs Online for Free

If you’re struggling to figure out a way to watch one or more NFL playoff games online for free during Wild Card weekend, consider registering for a free trial with a streaming TV service that includes the channels you need in its packages.

How does streaming TV work? For those unfamiliar with this increasingly popular alternative to cable, streaming TV services bundle together dozens of pay channels for subscribers, very similarly to cable. However, live streaming TV subscribers watch all of their content on connected devices, rather than watching channels only on TV. Streaming TV packages generally cost less than cable, and come with fewer fees as well.

In most of the country, the streaming TV services Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV include local broadcasts of channels like CBS, Fox, ABC, and NBC in their packages.

Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV, and another service, Sling TV, also include ESPN in certain basic packages. Sling TV also comes with local NBC and Fox broadcasts in select markets. (Fubo TV, on the other hand, does not include ESPN in any streaming TV packages.)

How much does streaming TV cost? And what’s the best live streaming TV service? Sling TV is the cheapest streaming TV service that includes ESPN, starting at $ 25 per month. The other streaming TV options cited above start at about $ 40 per month. The list of channels and amenities included with each service varies widely, so it’s best to shop around and look closely at the fine print to figure out which streaming TV service is best for you.

Luckily, all streaming TV services give free trials that last about a week for new subscribers. So, if you want to watch the NFL playoffs online for free this weekend, you could sign up for a new subscription and catch all the Wild Card weekend games without paying a dime.

You’d then have the rest of the week to try out the service before being charged. Just remember that if you ultimately decide you do not want to become a paying subscriber, you must cancel before the free-trial period ends. If you miss the deadline, you’ll be charged in full for the first month.

Delawareans Can Get a Free $20 Amazon Gift Card for Helping to Build a New Wind Farm

Did you know you can use your energy bill to support renewable energy — no matter where you live? Even living in Delaware, the money from your power bill could be helping to build a new wind farm in another state across the country.

With renewable energy company Arcadia Power, you can offset up to 100% of your monthly energy consumption with 100% renewable sources in about two minutes.

Arcadia Power matches each kilowatt-hour of power you use with a kilowatt-hour of wind energy. Basically, the company purchases certified renewable energy certificates in your name, so others can take advantage of clean energy in their area.

And, because you’re such a good person, the company will throw in a free $ 20 Amazon gift card.

The service is free in some areas and costs a small monthly fee in others.

Eric Hanson wanted a cleaner energy source, but didn’t have the option in his area — and didn’t want to install pricy solar panels.

So he went with Arcadia Power, which offers him a way to drive the demand for sustainably sourced electricity, even though it’s not available in his area yet.

“On a fundamental level, the power that I use in my house is coming from renewable sources,” Hanson says. “By providing financial support for renewable energy sites, I can disrupt the market. I’m willing to support green growth.”

Bonus: Arcadia lets you see an online dashboard to track your power usage  — and Delawareans can sign up for price alerts to find the cheapest energy rates available.

You can sign up to qualify for your free Amazon gift card in about two minutes.

How to Watch the Saints vs. Panthers ‘Monday Night Football’ Game Online for Free Tonight

NFL fans who want to watch the Saints vs. Panthers game on “Monday Night Football” for free tonight have several options for tuning in to this critical NFC South showdown.

While the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers TV broadcast is on ESPN, fans can still live stream “Monday Night Football” for free. All of the ways to watch the Saints vs. Panthers game online for free tonight are explained below.

But first, what about the Saints vs. Panthers matchup itself? Who is the favorite on “Monday Night Football” tonight?

Even though the 6-7 Carolina Panthers are playing at home at Bank of America Stadium, they are the underdogs. The New Orleans Saints, who are 11-2 and have already won the NFC South Division title, are 6.5-point favorites to beat their division rival Panthers. In fact, lately sports books say that the New Orleans Saints have the best odds of winning the Super Bowl in 2019.

But anything can happen in the NFL. Three other strong 2019 Super Bowl contenders — the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, and New England Patriots — lost their most recent games despite being favored to win.

Here’s all the info you need to watch the Saints vs. Panthers game — online or on TV — on “Monday Night Football” tonight.

What Time Does the Saints vs. Panthers Game Start Tonight?

“Monday Night Football” TV broadcasts, including the Panthers and Saints game tonight, are handled by ESPN. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET.

ESPN is a pay channel included in most satellite and cable TV bundles. If you have such a pay TV package, all you need to do to watch the Saints vs. Panthers on “Monday Night Football” is find ESPN on your TV.

If you don’t have cable, you can still live stream the Saints vs. Panthers for free — at least on your phone, if not another device like a laptop or smart TV.

How to Live Stream the Saints vs. Panthers Game for Free

To live stream “Monday Night Football” and other NFL games for free on your phone, download the newest version of either the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL app. These apps provide free live streams of many NFL games, including tonight’s Saints vs. Panthers game on “Monday Night Football.”

Exactly what NFL games can you live stream free with the NFL App or Yahoo Sports app? Fans get free live streams of national game broadcasts such as “Monday Night Football” (broadcasted on ESPN), “Thursday Night Football” (Fox and NFL Network), and “Sunday Night Football (NBC), in addition to whatever NFL games are being broadcasted on their local CBS and Fox stations every Sunday afternoon.

Unfortunately, fans who are using these apps are limited to free live streaming on a tiny screen. The apps only stream NFL games on smartphones — so you can’t use them to watch “Monday Night Football” online for free on a laptop, smart TV, or any other larger screen.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online on a Smart TV or Laptop

Consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service with ESPN if you want to watch the Saints vs. Panthers “Monday Night Football” game online for free tonight.

The streaming TV services Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN in certain packages. Prices for these streaming TV packages start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, but new subscribers can check them out for free for about a week during free-trial periods.

Streaming TV services, for those who are unfamiliar, are similar to cable in that they bundle together dozens of pay channels for subscribers. The main difference with live streaming TV is that subscribers stream content on connected devices, rather than watching channels via TV. Streaming TV packages are generally cheaper, with fewer fees, than cable as well.

Which streaming TV service is best? Well, the amenities and included channels vary from provider to provider. Sling TV is the cheapest streaming TV service with ESPN. But Sling also has the fewest channels included in its basic package. Many other streaming TV services include broadcasts of local network TV — like ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox — in many parts of the country as well, which is something that is not yet available on Sling TV.

So it’s worth checking out all the fine print, and what channels are included (and not) with each streaming TV service before registering for a subscription. And if you sign up for a free trial and ultimately decide you do not want to become a paying subscriber, remember to cancel in time. If you don’t cancel before the free trial ends, you’ll be charged in full for the first month.

CBS and Fox have the rest of the NFL TV broadcasts on Sunday, December 16, though the schedule of what games are on TV today varies by region.

Local CBS and Fox channels broadcast the local team’s games, as well as select other NFL games every Sunday. It appears as if most of the country will get to watch the New England Patriots vs. Pittsburgh Steelers game, scheduled for a 4:25 p.m. ET start on CBS.

Here’s a guide for how to watch today’s NFL games for free — online or on TV — no matter where you live.

NFL Game Schedule Today: Sunday, December 16

Here is the full NFL TV broadcast schedule for today:

• Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Detroit Lions vs. Buffalo Bills, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Baltimore Ravens, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Arizona Cardinals vs. Atlanta Falcons, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Oakland Raiders vs. Cincinnati Bengals, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Tennessee Titans vs. New York Giants, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Miami Dolphins vs. Minnesota Vikings, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Washington Redskins vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Dallas Cowboys vs. Indianapolis Colts, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers, 4:05 p.m. ET on Fox
• New England Patriots vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS
• Philadelphia Eagles vs. Los Angeles Rams, 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC

You don’t need cable TV to watch the Eagles vs. Rams on “Sunday Night Football” or the NFL games airing on your local CBS and Fox stations. In most of the country, all you need to watch football today is a digital antenna. A basic HDTV antenna costs around $ 25 or less, and it works similarly to an old-fashioned “rabbit ears” antenna, allowing viewers to watch local broadcasts of major over-the-air networks like CBS, Fox, NBC, and ABC for free.

The lineup of free TV channels you get with a digital antenna varies based on location and the strength of the antenna. But in most of the country, viewers can watch all the major networks for free by hooking their TV up to a digital antenna.

How to Live Stream NFL Games Today Free on Your Phone

If you want to live stream NFL games for free on your phone, download the latest version of the Yahoo Sports app or NFL App. These mobile phone apps provide free live streams of many NFL games. Specifically, mobile phone viewers can stream the NFL games that are airing on their local CBS and Fox stations, in addition to NFL games that are being broadcast national — including “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, “Monday Night Football” (ESPN), and “Thursday Night Football” (Fox).

The Yahoo Sports and NFL apps are both free. Fans should take note, however, that the free NFL game live streams are available only on smartphones. In other words, you cannot use these apps to watch NFL games online on a larger screen, such as a laptop or smart TV.

How to Watch NFL Games Online for Free

To watch NFL games online today on a screen that’s larger than your phone, consider signing up for a subscription with a streaming TV service such as Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV. In most of the country, these live streaming TV services include broadcasts of local networks in their bundles of dozens of other channels. And yes, streaming TV subscribers can watch TV online on any device they like, after logging in to their account.

The lineup of channels and monthly costs for streaming TV services vary based on the provider. Packages for the services above generally start at $ 40 per month, but new subscribers can check them out for free during free-trial periods that last about a week.

Fans could watch NFL games online for free today, then, by signing up for a new subscription with one of these streaming TV services. Afterwards, there would be several more days to continue to try out the service and decide if you want to become a paying subscriber. If you ultimately do not want to subscribe, remember to cancel before the free trial ends.

How to Watch All the NFL Games Today

For all of the options cited above, fans are limited to watching only the games being broadcast by their local CBS and Fox stations on Sunday afternoon. What if you want to watch NFL games that aren’t being broadcast on TV in your area?

In that case, fans generally face the prospect of subscribing to a special package that includes broadcasts of out-of-market NFL games. The best-known package is DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket, which lets you watch out-of-market NFL games every Sunday. The price of NFL Sunday Ticket starts at $ 300 per season, on top of the cost of a pay TV subscription.

The cheaper way to watch out-of-market NFL games is by subscribing to NFL Game Pass package. It costs $ 99.99 for the season, and new subscribers can sign up for a seven-day free trial. NFL Game Pass subscribers can watch (or stream) out-of-market NFL games on Sunday, but they cannot watch games live. Instead, NFL games become available to subscribers after they have ended.

But if you can avoid spoilers on the news and social media, NFL Game Pass could be your best option for catching out-of-market games. It is not only cheaper than NFL Sunday Ticket, it allows fans to watch condensed, commercial-free versions of NFL games — which can save you a bunch of time.

How to Watch NFL Games Online for Free Today, Including Rams vs. Bears on ‘Sunday Night Football’

The NFL games on TV today in week 14 of the 2018 season include exciting matchups like Patriots vs. Dolphins, Eagles vs. Cowboys, and Ravens vs. Chiefs, finishing up with a top-notch “Sunday Night Football” game: Rams vs. Bears.

The Los Angeles Rams and Chicago Bears are both leading their divisions — NFC West and NFC North, respectively — and either team could go far in the playoffs. In fact, the Rams, who are 11-1 and have the best record in the NFL, are now being given the best odds of winning the 2019 Super Bowl, scheduled for February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

But there is plenty more football to be played before then, including a full roster of games on the NFL schedule today. Here’s a guide for how to watch today’s NFL games for free — online or on TV — around the country.

What Is the NFL Game Schedule Today for Sunday, December 9?

First off, football fans do not get to watch every NFL game for free today. NFL games are broadcast on the major networks, which are free, but fans are typically limited by which Sunday games are being aired locally in their region.

Everyone gets to watch the Rams vs. Bears “Sunday Night Football” game for free tonight, because it’s being broadcast nationally by NBC stations all over the country. Otherwise, fans will get to see a few (but not all) of the Sunday afternoon games for free that are airing on CBS and Fox.

Here’s the full NFL game schedule for Sunday, December 9, and what channels are broadcasting the games:

• New York Jets vs. Buffalo Bills, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Baltimore Ravens vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Atlanta Falcons vs. Green Bay Packers, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Carolina Panthers vs. Cleveland Browns, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Denver Broncos vs. San Francisco 49ers, 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS
• Cincinnati Bengals vs. Los Angeles Chargers, 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS
• Detroit Lions vs. Arizona Cardinals, 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox
• Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Oakland Raiders, 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox
• Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys, 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox
• Los Angeles Rams vs. Chicago Bears, 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC

Unless you have a special NFL subscription package (see below) that includes broadcasts of out-of-market games, you’ll be limited to watching only the games airing on your local CBS and Fox stations. In general, that means you’ll receive broadcasts of your local team’s games, in addition to a couple of other NFL games that the networks believe will interest fans.

You don’t need cable TV or another pay TV subscription to watch these NFL games. All you need is a TV connected to a digital antenna. You can buy a decent HDTV antenna for around $ 25. Once it’s connected to your TV, you’ll be able to watch free, unlimited broadcast of over-the-air networks like CBS, Fox, NBC, ABC, and PBS.

Note, however, that the exact list of channels you can watch for free with a digital antenna varies based on where you live and the strength and position of the antenna you have.

How to Live Stream NFL Games for Free on Your Phone

What if you want to watch NFL games online today — on a phone or other device? There are a few possibilities.

To live stream NFL games for free on your phone, simply download the latest version of the Yahoo Sports app or NFL App. Both of these mobile phone apps have free live streams of all the NFL games that are airing on your local CBS, Fox, and NBC stations. (They also have free live streams of “Monday Night Football,” which is broadcast on the pay channel ESPN.)

The Yahoo Sports and NFL apps are totally free. They are free to download, and the NFL game live streams are free as well. However, the live streams are available only on phones. You cannot use these apps to watch NFL games on a larger screen, such as a tablet, laptop, or smart TV.

How to Watch NFL Games Online for Free on a Big Screen

To watch NFL games online today on any screen you want, considering registering for a free trial of a streaming TV service such as Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV. These live streaming TV services bundle together dozens of channels into subscriber packages, and in most of the country they include local broadcasts of major networks like CBS, Fox, and NBC.

Packages for these streaming TV services start at about $ 40 per month, but all are available free to new subscribers during trial periods that last about a week. To watch NFL games online for free today, then, you could register as a new subscriber to one of these streaming services — and afterward still have nearly a full week to check them out.

Just remember, that if you don’t want to become a paying subscriber, you must cancel before the free trial ends.

How to Watch Every NFL Game Today

All of the options above work if you’re trying to watch NFL games broadcast on your local channels on Sunday. But what if you want to watch out-of-market NFL games — i.e., games that aren’t airing on your local CBS or Fox stations?

If that’s the case, you’ll need access to a subscription package that includes out-of-market NFL game broadcasts. NFL Game Pass package is the cheapest option ($ 99.99 for the season), and new subscribers can sign up for a seven-day free trial. NFL Game Pass subscribers can watch (or stream) out-of-market NFL games, but games are available only after they have ended. In other words, you can’t watch games live with NFL Game Pass.

The upside of NFL Game Pass is that the service allows subscribers to watch condensed, commercial-free versions of the games, which can be a huge time saver.

The other main option for fans who hope to watch out-of-market NFL games is DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket. Packages start at $ 300 per season (on top of a pay TV subscription), and viewers get to watch all out-of-market NFL games every Sunday. Unfortunately, there is no free trial for NFL Sunday Ticket.

How to Watch the Vikings vs. Seahawks ‘Monday Night Football’ Game Online for Free

The Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks face off on “Monday Night Football” tonight. And the Vikings vs. Seahawks game is a critical one as the 2018 playoff brackets start to take shape: Both teams have winning records (the Seahawks record is 7-5, while the Vikings are 6-5-1) and have a good chance of making the playoffs if they finish the regular season strong.

The “Monday Night Football” game tonight is being played at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, and the Vikings vs. Seahawks betting odds indicate that the home team Seahawks are 3-point favorites to win. The Seahawks are scoring an average of 26.6 points per game this season, compared to just under 23 points for the Vikings. The over-under in tonight’s game is 45.5 points.

Here are all the options for how to watch the Vikings vs. Seahawks “Monday Night Football” game — online or on TV — including tips for getting a free NFL game live stream on your phone.

What Channel Is the Vikings vs. Seahawks Game on Tonight?

“Monday Night Football” TV broadcasts, including the Vikings vs. Seahawks tonight, are handled by ESPN. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET.

If you have satellite or cable TV, you probably have ESPN included in your bundle of pay TV channels. All you have to do is find ESPN if you want to watch “Monday Night Football” on TV.

If you don’t have cable, there are still ways to watch the Seahawks vs. Vikings game online for free. Check out the options to live stream “Monday Night Football” for free below.

How to Live Stream the Vikings vs. Seahawks Game for Free

To live stream NFL games for free on your phone, use either the Yahoo Sports app and the NFL app. Either app provides free live streams of many NFL games, including “Monday Night Football,” even though the TV broadcast is on the pay channel ESPN.

In addition to matchups like tonight’s Vikings vs. Seahawks game, these apps let you live stream “Thursday Night Football” games (broadcast on Fox), “Sunday Night Football” (NBC), and all the NFL games normally broadcast on your local CBS and Fox stations on Sunday afternoons. While the apps are free to download and use, the live streams are available only on phones. So you can’t use them to watch NFL games on a larger screen, such as a laptop or smart TV.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online on a Smart TV

If you want to live stream the Vikings vs. Seahawks “Monday Night Football” game on a screen that’s larger than your phone, consider registering for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes ESPN in its packages.

The streaming TV services Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN in their basic packages. The costs of these packages start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, but they’re available to new subscribers for free for about seven days.

So, to watch tonight’s Seahawks vs. Vikings game online for free, you could register for a new subscription and live stream the game during the free-trial period. Afterwards, you would have most of a week to check out the service. Each is a little different, with different bundles of pay channels, but they are all basically the online equivalent of the traditional cable TV package — only they tend to cost less per month, and have fewer surprise fees.

Sling TV is the cheapest streaming TV service that includes ESPN in packages. But Sling TV also has fewer channels than the other services. It’s worth taking a close look at all the fine print, and what’s included with each live streaming TV service, before registering for a subscription.

Also, remember: If you ultimately decide you don’t want to become a paying subscriber, be sure to cancel your streaming TV service before the free-trial period ends.

“What’s Free?”: Jay-Z Shares Lessons in Business and Ownership on Meek Mill’s New Album

Just months after being released from prison for violating probation, rapper Robert Rihmeek Williams, best known as Meek Mill, released a much-anticipated album last week. The album, titled Championships, features hardcore beats, a rotation of hip hop superstars, including Cardi B and Drake, and a powerful message about Meek’s road to redemption.

On the standout track “What’s Free?” Meek teamed up with hip hop heavyweights Jay-Z and Rick Ross, who rap about their definition of freedom over the beat from Biggie Smalls’ 1997 classic “What’s Beef?” Jay-Z, however, outshines his cohorts with an exceptional verse, using his lyrical prowess to drop knowledge about the struggle for black liberation and allegedly take shots at the MAGA-loving Kanye West. In addition, the Brooklyn-born rapper boasts about his lucrative business investments and the massive accumulation of wealth he’s built over the years.

Here are eight lessons Jay-Z shared about business, ownership, and financial freedom on “What’s Free?”

Meek Mill

“I’m 50% of D’usse and it’s debt free”

In this lyric, Jay-Z raps about his profitable stake in D’usse. The hip hop icon tapped into his personal savings to purchase equity in the cognac brand back in 2011. Because he did not have a need for financing, he was left with no debt and has reaped tremendous profits. In addition to being a partial owner, the mega-mogul also serves as head of global strategy for the brand.

 

“100% of Ace of Spades, worth half a B”

Jay-Z brags about his ownership of Armand de Brignac, a champagne popularly known as Ace of Spades. He expressed his affinity for the brand by featuring it in his rhymes and videos long before he bought the champagne from Sovereign Brands for an undisclosed amount in 2014. His brilliant marketing has, in turn, made Ace of Spades one of the most popular Champagne brands on the market and a staple at high-end clubs, bars, and establishments. Today, the luxury champagne can cost up to $ 1,000 per bottle, while the value of the company has skyrocketed.

 

“Roc Nation, half of that, that’s my piece”

Here, Jay-Z shouts out another part of his business empire, Roc Nation, a multi-platform entertainment company he founded in 2008. The company specializes in artist management, music publishing, concert touring and production, and film and TV production. It also serves as a talent and sports agency that represents A-list clients like Shakira, Rihanna, NBA star Kevin Durant, and NFL player Victor Cruz.

 

“100% of Tidal to bust it up with my Gs”

The successful rapper and entrepreneur goes on to highlight his music platform Tidal, a subscription-based streaming service he purchased in 2015, along with a variety of other high-profile music artists. Last year, he sold 33% of the company to Sprint for $ 200 million, raising the valuation of the company to $ 600 million.

 

“We made the project a wave; You came back, reinvested and gentrified it”

This line is a reference to the gentrification of low-income communities, an epidemic that disproportionately hurts people of color. The invasion of real estate investors, who are often wealthy and white, in these areas drives up rents and the cost of living, which leads to the displacement of working-class residents as well as the erasure of the neighborhood’s character. That’s why Jay is stressing the importance of ownership — without it, people of color can be stripped of their land, culture, and identity.

 

“I ain’t got a billion streams, got a billion dollars”

A large part of Hov’s discography has been removed from Tidal’s music-streaming competitors, like Spotify and Apple Music. The move cost the rap mogul tons of streams. Nevertheless, its smart business moves like this that have made him the highest-earning rapper of 2018. The decision also speaks to his acumen as a businessman who is willing to make a personal career sacrifice for the ultimate benefit of his business.

 

“Them people stole the soul and hit ni—s with 360s”

Jay-Z addresses how hip hop, which began as a medium of expression for African Americans, has been co-opted by big businesses and major record labels who earn major profits from artists who sign 360 deals. These notorious contracts give labels a stake in the revenue an artist generates from touring, performing, selling merchandise, endorsements, and appearing in movies and television.  According to Jay, the deal is equivalent to someone selling their soul.

He, on the other hand, has bought the masters rights to his music. This ownership gives him leverage to use the masters to bargain the terms of a contract with a company or platform that wants access to his catalog.

 

“My accountant’s so good, I’m practically livin’ tax-free”

Like many wealthy elites, Jay-Z uses loopholes and provisions in U.S. tax law for his own financial advantage. The mogul raps about how his tax advisors prevent him from unnecessary taxation and allow him to submit the minimum amount on his tax returns. For example, in 2011, Jay-Z and Kanye West donated the Maybach used in their “Otis” music video to auction and used the proceeds to benefit the drought crisis in East Africa. As a result, the donation was tax-deductible.

But first, who is the favorite in the Jaguars vs. Titans game, and what are the betting odds? The Tennessee Titans, who are 6-6 and playing at home at Nissan Stadium, are 4.5-point favorites to beat their AFC South rivals Jacksonville Jaguars (4-8) tonight. The over-under for the “Thursday Night Football” matchup scheduled for December 6 is 37.5 points

Here are all the details for how to watch the Jaguars vs. Titans game for free tonight.

What Time Does the “Thursday Night Football” Game Start?

Like most “Thursday Night Football” games this season, the main TV broadcast for the Jaguars vs. Titans tonight is being handled by Fox, and the kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. ET. To watch “Thursday Night Football” on TV, simply find your local Fox station.

If you have cable TV or another pay TV service, it probably includes Fox and other broadcast networks in the package. If you don’t have cable and want to watch network TV, it’s well worth purchasing a digital antenna.

You can buy a decent digital antenna for about $ 25. Once it’s connected to your TV, you’ll be able to watch unlimited, over-the-air network TV for free in most of the country. Which channels you can watch with an antenna depend on where you live, but most people in the U.S. can tune in the local channels from all the major networks, including Fox.

How to Live Stream the Jaguars vs. Titans Game for Free

As we have reported earlier this season, fans can watch “Thursday Night Football” online for free — in addition to many other NFL games — on their phones. Here are the details on how to live stream NFL games, and what football games you can watch online for free, on your phone:

After downloading the latest versions of either the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL App, you’ll be able to live stream a host of games on your phone. Specifically, the Yahoo Sports app and NFL App let fans live stream games that are being broadcast locally in their region by networks like CBS and Fox, as well as all nationally broadcast primetime games. That includes “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, and “Thursday Night Football” on the NFL Network and Fox.

The free NFL game live streams available with these apps only work on phones. In other words, you can’t use these apps to live stream games on a laptop, tablet, or connected TV.

What if you want to live stream the Jaguars vs. Titans “Thursday Night Football” game for free on a screen that’s larger than a phone?

Amazon Prime has a live stream of most “Thursday Night Football” games, including Jaguars vs. Titans tonight, on Prime Video. Amazon Prime members can simply log in to their accounts and go to Prime Video to watch the game on any device.

Amazon Prime membership, which includes free two-day shipping on most Amazon purchases in addition to free streaming video and music content, generally costs $ 119 per year or $ 12.99 per month. New subscribers can sign up for a 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime, and it might not be a bad time to try out the service — considering that it’s the holiday shopping season and you may be making some online shopping purchases.

It is also possible to live stream “Thursday Night Football” for free by registering for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes local broadcast of Fox and other networks in its bundle of channels. The streaming TV services Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV include such broadcasts in most of the country, but coverage varies and you should inquire if Fox is part of the package before subscribing.

All of these live streaming TV services can be tested via free trials that last about a week. After that, the basic cost of a package starts at about $ 40 per month. If you don’t want to become a paying subscriber, remember to cancel before the free-trial period ends.

The Yahoo Sports app and the NFL app allow you to live stream many NFL games on your phone for free. Specifically, when you download the newest version of either app, you can watch “Monday Night Football” for free on your phone, as well as other nationally broadcast NFL games — “Sunday Night Football” on NBC and “Thursday Night Football” on Fox — and all of the Sunday afternoon NFL games that are broadcast on your local CBS and Fox stations.

These apps are totally free to download, and the game live streams are free as well. On the other hand, these apps only allow for live streaming on a phone. In other words, you can’t use them to live stream “Monday Night Football” and other games on a larger screen, such as a tablet, laptop, or smart TV.

To watch “Monday Night Football” for free tonight on a larger screen, look into a free trial of a streaming TV service with ESPN, explained in the section below.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online

If you want to live stream the Redskins vs. Eagles “Monday Night Football” game tonight for free on any screen, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes ESPN in its packages.

If you are unfamiliar with streaming TV services, they work fairly similarly to cable: Subscribers pay a monthly fee for a bundle of channels, only with streaming TV, the viewing happens on a connected screen rather than via a box connected to your TV.

What channels are included with streaming TV services varies by provider. The streaming TV providers Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN in their basic packages.

Prices for these services start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month — Sling TV is the cheapest of the bunch — and all offer free trials that last about a week for new subscribers. Assuming you’re a new subscriber, you could register today with one of these live streaming TV services and watch “Monday Night Football” online for free on any device you like. You’d then have the rest of the week to try out the service and determine whether you want to become a paying subscriber.

If you don’t want to pay, you must remember to cancel before the free-trial period ends.

How to Watch the Alabama vs. Georgia SEC Championship Game for Free Online

College football conference championship weekend is upon us. And the nation’s top-ranked college football teams have more than just conference title bragging rights on the line: The results of the Alabama vs. Georgia SEC championship game today in particular will help determine which teams are selected to the college football playoffs, consisting of a pair of December 29 semifinals and a January 7 championship game.

As for the Alabama vs. Georgia betting odds, the University of Alabama Crimson Tide is the heavy favorite to win over the University of Georgia Bulldogs: The point spread is nearly two touchdowns (13.5 points).

That’s not the only college football game today, though. The big college football conference championship games today are the following: Oklahoma vs. Texas (Big 12 championship), Alabama vs. Georgia (SEC championship), Clemson vs. Pittsburgh (ACC championship), and Ohio State vs. Northwestern (Big Ten championship).

Luckily for sports fans, all of these college football games are being broadcast nationally on free, over-the-air networks. In other words, you can watch college football for free today even if you don’t have cable. There are also ways to live stream the college football conference championship games for free, if you’d rather watch online. Here are all the details.

What College Football Games Are on TV Today?

Here’s the college football game schedule today (Saturday, December 1) for the major conference championships, and what channels the games are on:

• Texas vs. Oklahoma, 12 p.m. ET on ABC
• Alabama vs. Georgia, 4 p.m. ET on CBS
• Clemson vs. Pittsburgh, 7 p.m. ET on ABC
• Northwestern vs. Ohio State, 8 p.m. on Fox

Because major networks have all of these broadcasts, you can watch the college football games above for free even if you don’t have cable. In most of the country, all you need to watch Alabama vs. Georgia for free (alongside other games) is a digital antenna.

You can buy a digital antenna for about $ 25 or less, and it’s a great investment if you’re a cord-cutter who doesn’t want to pay a monthly cable bill. Once you hook the antenna up to your TV, you’ll be able to watch live and unlimited local broadcasts of free, over-the-air networks, including ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC.

How to Live Stream College Football Games for Free Today

If you don’t have a TV or want to watch college football today online for whatever reason, there are a few options — and some are “free,” though you are generally required to subscribe to some kind of pay TV or streaming service.

In many parts of the country, fans can live stream the Texas vs. Oklahoma game (and later, Clemson vs. Pittsburgh) with the ABC Live Stream or the ABC app. Similarly, you can stream the Northwestern vs. Ohio State game at fox.com/live or the Fox Go app, and you can live stream the Alabama vs. Georgia game using the CBS live stream.

To use any of these live streams, however, you are required to log in with a satellite or cable TV subscription account and password. There’s also another live streaming option for CBS and the Alabama-Georgia SEC Championship game: CBS All Access is a stand-alone service that lets you live stream CBS content, and though it normally costs $ 5.99 per month, you can try it out free during a one-week trial period.

Yet another way to live stream college football games today for free is by signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes local broadcast channels in its packages. In much of the country, subscribers to Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV get CBS, ABC, Fox, and other local channels included with their bundles. And they all offer free trials lasting about a week to new subscribers. So you could register today and watch college football free online, and then have the rest of the week to try out the service before being charged.

Just remember to cancel in time if you don’t want to become a paying subscriber. Basic packages for the streaming TV services above cost $ 40 to $ 45 per month, after the free trial is over.

How to Watch Today’s NFL Games Online for Free, Including Vikings vs. Bears on ‘Sunday Night Football’

Cowboys vs. Falcons, Steelers vs. Jaguars, and Eagles vs. Saints are on the NFL game schedule today, which ends with a Vikings vs. Bears game on “Sunday Night Football” tonight.

What NFL games are on TV today? Well, the answer depends partly on where you live. All fans get to watch the Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears on “Sunday Night Football,” which is broadcast nationally on NBC. Other NFL games today are broadcast on CBS and Fox stations, though local channels choose to air the games that are likely to interest the regional fan base.

Here’s how to watch NFL games for free — online or on TV — on Sunday, November 18, including options for live streaming games on your phone and watching NFL games that aren’t being broadcast on your local stations.

What’s the NFL Game Schedule Today?

What NFL games are on TV today? Here’s the full NFL game schedule for Sunday, November 18:

• Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Dallas Cowboys vs. Atlanta Falcons, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New York Giants, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Houston Texans vs. Washington Redskins, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Tennessee Titans vs. Indianapolis Colts, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Carolina Panthers vs. Detroit Lions, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Denver Broncos vs. Los Angeles Chargers, 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS
• Oakland Raiders vs. Arizona Cardinals, 4:05 p.m. ET on Fox
• Philadelphia Eagles vs. New Orleans Saints, 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox
• Minnesota Vikings vs. Chicago Bears, 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC

Even if you don’t have cable, you should be able to watch the NFL games being broadcast locally in your area. All you need is a digital antenna, which costs about $ 25. Hook it up to your TV and in most of the country you’ll be able to tune in unlimited free broadcasts of major networks like CBS, Fox, NBC, ABC, and PBS — in hi-def no less.

How to Live Stream NFL Games Today for Free on Your Phone

If you are on the go on Sunday, or simply want to live stream NFL games on your phone for whatever reason, download the latest version of the Yahoo Sports app or NFL App. With either app, you get free live streams of many NFL games on your phone. Specially, the apps let you live stream all of the games broadcast locally in your area — your local team’s games will be among them — in addition to all nationally televised games like “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, and “Thursday Night Football” on Fox.

The NFL live streams on these apps are available only on phones. They cannot be used for live streaming on a larger screen, like a laptop or connected TV. That’s a bummer, but there are other options if you want to watch NFL games online on a larger screen.

How to Watch NFL Games Online for Free on Any Screen

To watch NFL games online on a laptop, tablet, or any screen larger than a phone, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service such as Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV. Each of these services comes with dozens of pay channels, and in most of the country subscribers also get live streams of local broadcast channels, including CBS, Fox, and NBC.

These streaming TV package prices generally start at $ 40 per month, and all are available for free to new subscribers during trial periods that last about a week. So sports fans could sign up and stream NFL games today for free, and then still have the rest of the week to test out the service. Just remember to cancel before the free trial is over if you do not want to become a paying subscriber.

How to Watch Any NFL Game Today You Want

All of the options above let you watch only the games being broadcast on your local broadcast stations. If you want to watch NFL games airing only in other parts of the country — a.k.a. “out-of-market” games — then a digital antenna or basic cable or streaming package won’t cut it.

To watch out-of-market NFL games, you must get a special package like DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket. Prices start at $ 300 per season, and subscribers get to watch NFL games broadcast all over the country.

The cheaper way to watch out-of-market NFL games is NFL Game Pass. This package lets you watch (or stream) all NFL games after they’re over. The tradeoff to watching after everyone else knows the end result is that NFL Game Pass gives you the option to watch condensed, commercial-free versions of the games. As mentioned, the cost is cheaper than NFL Sunday Ticket: NFL Game Pass costs $ 99.99 for the 2018 NFL season, and new subscribers get a seven-day free trial.

How to Watch the Packers vs. Seahawks ‘Thursday Night Football’ Game Online for Free Tonight

The “Thursday Night Football” game tonight should be a great matchup: Packers vs. Seahawks.

The Green Bay Packers, led by one the NFL’s greatest-ever quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers, are 4-4-1 thus far in the 2018 season. The Seattle Seahawks, led by another Super Bowl-winning quarterback in Russell Wilson, have a similar record at 4-5. Both teams are very alive in the hunt to make the playoffs, so tonight’s “Thursday Night Football” game absolutely matters.

Who is the favorite in the Packers vs. Seahawks game tonight? Well, the official betting odds indicate that the Seahawks, playing their home stadium, CenturyLink Field, have a slight edge: Seattle is a 2.5-point favorite to beat Green Bay.

If you want to know how to watch the Packers vs. Seahawks “Thursday Night Football” game — online, or on regular TV — for free, we’ve got you covered. Here are all the options.

What Channel Is the Packers vs. Seahawks Game On?

Tonight’s Packers vs. Seahawks TV broadcast is being handled by Fox, like most “Thursday Night Football” games this season. To watch, simply find your local Fox station on TV.

Most satellite or cable TV subscriptions come with Fox, as well as other major broadcast networks like CBS, ABC, and NBC. If you don’t have cable, you can still watch “Thursday Night Football” in most of the country by connecting your TV to a digital antenna.

A basic digital antenna costs about $ 25 or less, and with it you can watch Fox and other over-the-air networks for free — assuming you live close enough to receive the local signal. What’s more, modern digital antennas offer viewing in hi-def. They’re well worth the minimal investment if you don’t want to pay a monthly cable bill.

How to Live Stream the Packers vs. Seahawks Game for Free

You’ve got several options to watch the Packers vs. Seahawks game online — and yes, you can live stream it for free.

First off, as we have reported earlier this season, you can live stream NFL games for free on your phone with two apps. Not every NFL game is available for a free live stream, but you can indeed use one of the apps to watch the Packers vs. Seahawks game online on Thursday night.

Here are the details on how to live stream NFL games on your phone:

After downloading the latest versions of either the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL App, you’ll be able to live stream a host of games on your phone. Specifically, the Yahoo Sports app and NFL App let fans live stream games that are being broadcast locally in their region by networks like CBS and Fox, as well as all nationally broadcast primetime games. That includes “Sunday Night Football” on NBC, “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, and “Thursday Night Football” on the NFL Network and Fox.

Unfortunately, these apps can only be used to live stream NFL games on a phone. You can’t watch games online on a larger screen, like a laptop, tablet, or connected TV, with these apps.

However, Amazon Prime members can live stream the Packers vs. Seahawks game tonight for free on any screen they want. Log in to your Prime account, and you’ll be able to watch “Thursday Night Football” on Amazon Video.

If you are not a Prime member, you could still watch the game and test out the service during a 30-day free trial if you’re a new subscriber. It’s probably not a bad time to sign up for a free Amazon Prime subscription: Members get free two-day shipping on most Amazon purchases, a perk that could come in handy during the winter holiday shopping season. After the free trial, Amazon Prime membership generally costs $ 119 per year or $ 12.99 per month.

Yet another option to live stream “Thursday Night Football” for free is available by way of a free trial of a streaming TV service such as Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV. These services work similarly to cable, in that they bundle dozens of channels together for one monthly fee, and they include live streams of local channels like Fox, NBC, and ABC in most of the country.

These live streaming TV packages generally start at $ 40 to $ 45 per month, but free trials are available for new subscribers. So you could register and watch the Packers vs. Seahawks game for free tonight, and still have the rest of the week to try out the service before deciding if you want to pay. If you don’t, remember to cancel before the free trial period is over.

Amazon Announces Free Shipping for Holidays — No Prime Membership Needed

Amazon is the latest e-commerce retailer to offer free shipping on all pre-holiday purchases, regardless of membership status.

Amazon typically offers free two-day shipping to Prime members, who pay $ 119 for the privilege. Otherwise, shoppers must hit a $ 25 purchase minimum to access free shipping.

“All Amazon customers can enjoy free shipping with no minimum purchase amount on orders that will arrive in time for the Christmas holiday,” the company announced on its website.

It also noted that eligible items typically ship in five to eight days.

The promotion started Nov. 5 and is available “for a limited time.”

Amazon’s offer is likely in response to increasing competition from other retailers that hope to lure customers to their e-commerce options.

Target announced Oct. 23 that it would offer free two-day shipping to all online shoppers without requiring a minimum order size. That promotion began Nov. 1 and will continue through Dec. 22.  Target typically has a $ 35 minimum order requirement to access free shipping.

Meanwhile, Walmart announced the same day that it’s expanding its free two-day shipping option to Marketplace items sold by third parties.

“In the coming months, you will see millions of additional items with the two-day free shipping label,” the company announced. Walmart.com will still require a $ 35 minimum order for free two-day shipping.

Customers in search of the best shipping deal for their online holiday shopping should watch the fine print for deadlines and restrictions that could delay delivery of those gifts.

One Last Free-Shipping Hurrah?

These free shipping offers are enticing for customers, but retailers may not be so generous next holiday season.

The U.S. Postal Service has proposed a 9% to 12% increase for the parcel select shipping service used by Amazon for the last leg of delivery. FedEx also announced that ground and home delivery shipping rates will increase by an average of 4.9%.

These increases don’t go into effect until January 2019. But they surely have major e-commerce players preparing to adjust their shipping strategies or make up for the increase in other ways — potentially by increasing prices.

• Miami Dolphins vs. Green Bay Packers, 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS
• Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles, 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC

If you have cable or another pay TV service, it probably includes local broadcasts of major networks like CBS, Fox, and NBC. All you need to do to watch today’s NFL games for free is find your local station — and hope that the game you want to see is on. The networks always show the local team’s games, as well as one or more games that they believe will interest the local sports fans.

Mind you, you don’t need cable to watch the NFL games today being broadcast on TV. If you don’t have cable and want to watch the NFL, the smartest move is to buy a digital antenna. You can get a decent one for about $ 25, and once it’s connected to a TV in most of the country it will provide free unlimited hi-def broadcasts of your local over-the-air networks, including CBS, Fox, NBC, ABC, and PBS.

How to Live Stream NFL Games Today for Free

TV is not the only way to watch today’s NFL games. There are several ways to watch NFL games online, including an option that’s new for the 2018 season allowing fans to live stream games on their phones.

As we have previously reported:

If you are content to live stream games on your phone, you can use the Yahoo Sports app or NFL App. Each app offers live streams for the NFL games broadcast on TV in your area, as well as nationally televised primetime games, including “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, “Thursday Night Football” on Fox or the NFL Network, and NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.”

Unfortunately, these apps only allow live streaming on phones. You cannot use one of the apps for watching the NFL live online with a larger screen, such as a laptop, tablet, or connected TV.

How to Watch NFL Games Online for Free on Any Screen

No one wants to sit back on their couch and watch an NFL game … on a phone. But if you don’t have cable or a digital antenna, or want to watch NFL games today online for whatever reason, you may want to try out a streaming TV service such as Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV.

Streaming TV packages are like cable, in that they let subscribers watch dozens of pay channels, and in most of the country subscribers also get local stations of broadcast channels, including CBS, Fox, and NBC. The monthly price for these streaming TV services starts at about $ 40, and they all come with free trials that last about a week for new subscribers.

So, if you want to watch the NFL online today on any screen you want, you could sign up for a free trial and catch some games on a tablet, laptop, or connected TV. Afterwards, you’d still have nearly a full week to try out the service further. If you wind up not wanting to become a paying subscriber, you must cancel before the free-trial period is over.

How to Watch Every NFL Game Today

In most cases, fans are limited by being able to watch only the NFL games broadcast today by their local CBS and Fox stations (as well as nationally broadcast “Sunday Night Football”). So-called “out-of-market” games are available only if you have a subscription to a special package such as DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket. This service lets you watch NFL games being played all over the country, and prices start at $ 300 for the 2018 NFL season.

NFL Sunday Ticket is not the only package that will allow you to watch out-of-market NFL games. Another — cheaper — option is NFL Game Pass. It costs $ 99.99 for the 2018 NFL season, and new subscribers get a seven-day free trial.

NFL Game Pass does not allow you to watch games live. Instead, with an NFL Game Pass subscription, you can watch (or stream) out-of-market NFL games after they are over. Once the game is over, it becomes available for NFL Game Pass subscribers, and while it may be a bummer to watch after everyone else knows how the game ended, the service does give fans the option to watch condensed, commercial-free versions of games. It’s a huge time saver.

How to Watch the Titans vs. Cowboys ‘Monday Night Football’ Game Online for Free Tonight

The Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys play in the “Monday Night Football” game on November 5, with a kickoff scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET.

Who is the favorite to win in tonight’s Titans vs. Cowboys game? Both teams are currently 3-4, and the outcome of tonight’s matchup will give the winner a .500 record and increase their chances of making the playoffs, while the loser will stand at a sad 3-5. The Titans vs. Cowboys betting odds indicate that the Cowboys — playing at home at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, where they are undefeated thus far in the 2018 NFL season — are 6-point favorites to win.

All “Monday Night Football” games are broadcast on ESPN. It’s a pay channel, of course, included with most satellite and cable TV packages. If you have cable or another pay TV package, all you have to do to watch the Titans vs. Cowboys game is find ESPN.

If you don’t have cable, you can still watch “Monday Night Football” for free — online or on TV — and we’ve laid out the options below.

How to Live Stream the Titans vs. Cowboys for Free

If you are content to watch “Monday Night Football” on the screen on your phone, that’s simple enough to accomplish. Just download the newest version of the Yahoo Sports app or the NFL app and you’ll be able to live stream many NFL games for free this season. Specifically, fans can use the apps to live stream all of the Sunday NFL games broadcast locally on CBS and Fox where they live, plus the nationally televised matchups on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” and Fox’s “Thursday Night Football.

If you don’t have cable and still want to watch the Titans vs. Cowboys tonight for free, these apps provide the easiest way to tune in outside of heading over to your neighbor’s house or a local bar to catch the game. The one hiccup is that the apps only provide live streams to phones — and cannot be used for watching online on a tablet, laptop, or connected TV.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free Online

If you want to live stream the Cowboys vs. Titans game for free on a screen that’s larger than your smartphone, consider registering for a free trial of a streaming TV service that includes ESPN in its bundle of channels.

Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and YouTube TV all include ESPN with their basic packages, and they all offer new subscribers free trials that last about a week. So, if you just wanted to live stream “Monday Night Football” tonight without paying for cable, you could register as a new subscriber and check out one of these services.

Basic streaming packages start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, after the free trial period is over. If you don’t want to become a paying subscriber, be sure to remember to cancel before the free trial ends.

Which streaming TV service is best for cord-cutters? And which streaming TV service is best for NFL fans, and sports fans in general? Each service has a different roster of channels, so the answer depends on what you like to watch in your household. Fubo TV is a streaming TV service that’s marketed most heavily to sports fans, but it does not include ESPN in packages — so you can’t use it for live streaming “Monday Night Football.”

Our advice is to check out what channels and perks are included with each service, and then look closely at the price points. As mentioned, each service comes with a free trial, so you could certainly try out more than one and see which option works best for you and your budget.

Identity Theft Concerns? Freeze Your Credit for Free, Now

A law that went into effect Sept. 21 allows you to freeze your credit with all three credit bureaus: TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax.

Why You May Want to Freeze Your Credit

According to the Federal Trade Commission, a credit freeze, also called a ‘security freeze,’ “lets you restrict access to your credit report, which in turn makes it more difficult for identity thieves to open new accounts in your name.”

Freezing credit is not something new, however many states allowed the credit bureaus to charge to do so, according to BizJournal.

Congress made credit freezing ubiquitously free after a hack compromised an estimated 143 million people’s personal information on Equifax’s servers in 2017. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) pushed for the Freedom from Equifax Exploitation (FREE) Act.

FAQs about Credit Freeze

From the Federal Trade Commission’s Consumer Information web page:

Does a credit freeze affect your credit score?

A credit freeze has no negative effect on your credit score. It also does not prevent you from getting your free annual credit report. Nor does a freeze prevent you from “opening a new account, applying for a job, renting an apartment, or buying insurance.” However, you do have to lift the freeze before embarking on anything that requires a credit check (more on that later).

What is the difference between a credit freeze and a fraud alert?

A credit freeze prevents a crook from opening up an account using your credit or from identity theft. A fraud alert will not prevent identity theft but will alert you when there is suspicion of something shady going on.

Is credit freezing a 100% guarantee that your data and credit won’t be compromised?

No. According to a post on Experian’s blog, “In the event your credit card number falls into a fraudster’s hands after a data breach, know that a credit freeze won’t help.”

How to Freeze Your Credit

You can freeze your credit online or by calling each individual credit bureau. You will need your Social Security number, name, address, and date of birth. Additionally, each bureau will ask you to verify your identity by answering a series of questions: checking off previous addresses; past loans or leases you may have taken out, etc.

Here are the websites and phone number for each bureau:

Equifax

Equifax.com/personal/credit-report-services

800-685-1111

Experian

Experian.com/help

888-EXPERIAN (888-397-3742)

TransUnion

TransUnion.com/credit-help

888-909-8872

Lifting a Freeze 

After you’ve placed a freeze, each bureau will provide you with a PIN (Personal Identification Number). You must keep this PIN in a safe place because you will need it whenever you want to lift the freeze.

Also, there have been reports that since the law was passed, the credit bureau’s websites have been inundated with credit freeze requests. There may be some wonkiness with some of the sites (I had trouble placing a freeze on TransUnion’s site this past weekend). If you can’t use the site, call the bureau to place the freeze (and expect long waits to speak to someone, for now).

How to Watch the Week 8 NFL Games Online for Free Today

The NFL game schedule today starts with the Eagles vs. Jaguars, live from London’s Wembley Stadium with a broadcast time of 9:30 a.m. ET.

Some of the other big NFL games today include Broncos vs. Chiefs, Ravens vs. Panthers, Packers vs. Rams, and Saints vs. Vikings, plus Patriots vs. Bills on “Monday Night Football.”

Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch NFL games today for free — online or on TV — during week eight of the 2018 NFL season.

What NFL Games Are on TV Today?

Here is the full NFL game schedule today (Sunday, October 28), including the primetime “Sunday Night Football” Saints-Vikings matchup, and which channels are broadcasting NFL games around the country:

• Philadelphia Eagles vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, 9:30 a.m. ET on NFL Network
• Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Washington Redskins vs. New York Giants, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Seattle Seahawks vs. Detroit Lions, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Cincinnati Bengals, 1 p.m. ET on Fox
• New York Jets vs. Chicago Bears, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Baltimore Ravens vs. Carolina Panthers, 1 p.m. ET on CBS
• Indianapolis Colts vs. Oakland Raiders, 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS
• San Francisco 49ers vs. Arizona Cardinals, 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox
• Green Bay Packers vs. Los Angeles Rams, 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox
• New Orleans Saints vs. Minnesota Vikings, 1 p.m. ET on CBS

With the exception of the morning game played in London (Eagles vs. Jaguars), which is being broadcast on the NFL Network, all of the other NFL games today are airing on a major broadcast network: CBS, Fox, or NBC. Bear in mind, however, that your local stations won’t be showing every game; you should be able to watch your region’s local team and a few other premier games.

To watch these NFL games for free today on TV, turn on your local CBS, Fox, or NBC station. If you have a satellite or cable TV package, you probably have these channels — and perhaps you have the pay channel NFL Network too.

If you don’t have cable, you can still watch the NFL games for free that are airing locally on CBS and Fox, plus the “Sunday Night Football” game, which is broadcast nationally on NBC. All you need to do for access to these channels is hook up your TV to a digital antenna. A basic digital TV antenna costs around $ 25, and in most of the country that’s all you need to do to watch over-the-air networks, including Fox, CBS, PBS, NBC, and ABC — totally for free.

How to Live Stream the NFL Games Today for Free

As we have previously reported, there’s a new way to live stream NFL games for free on your phone in the 2018 season:

If you are content to live stream games on your phone, you can use the Yahoo Sports app or NFL App. Each app offers live streams for the NFL games broadcast on TV in your area, as well as nationally televised primetime games, including “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, “Thursday Night Football” on Fox or the NFL Network, and NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.”

Unfortunately, these apps only allow live streaming on phones. You cannot use one of the apps for watching the NFL live online with a larger screen, such as a laptop, tablet, or connected TV.

How to Watch NFL Games Online for Free on Any Screen

If you instead want to watch NFL games on a screen that’s larger than your phone, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service such as Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube TV.

Each of these services allows you to live stream dozens of channels — including local broadcast networks in most of the country — and they all offer free trials lasting about a week for new subscribers. So, if you were hoping to watch the NFL games today online for free, you could register with one of these streaming services and try out their live streaming capabilities on a tablet, connected TV, or any other screen you like.

Packages with these streaming TV services start at $ 40 after the free trial period expires. Take careful note of when the free trial is over, and be sure to cancel if you don’t want to become a paying subscriber. You’ll be charged automatically for the first month’s service if you don’t cancel in time.

How to Watch Every NFL Game Today

All of the strategies listed above for watching NFL games are limited by what’s being broadcast on your local TV stations.

If you want to watch games that aren’t being broadcast locally on CBS or Fox, check out a special NFL subscription package, such as the DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket. With this package, you’ll be able to watch out-of-market NFL games, but you’ll pay for it: Prices start at about $ 300 for the 2018 season.

The other option to watch out-of-market NFL games is the NFL Game Pass package. It starts at $ 99.99 for the 2018 NFL season, though you can try it out for free during a seven-day trial period.

NFL Game Pass lets subscribers watch (or stream) every NFL game, but there’s a catch: Access to the games is available only after the games are over. In other words, you can’t watch games live. The tradeoff, beyond a price that’s cheaper than some other packages, is that NFL Game Pass allows you to save time and watch condensed, no-commercial versions of each game.
