Obtaining cheaper auto insurance is not impossible. A driver should improve his car’s safety rating, make smart coverage selection, and look for several investment opportunities with the current provider. In order to get the best car insurance prices, follow the next tips:

  • Bundle multiple insurance services. Getting coverage for all household’s cars with the same company is a smart thing to do. Also, try to insure the home with the same company. Multi-car and multi-policies discounts are great ways to save money.
  • Ask for discounts. Car insurance companies offer a wide variety of discounts. Some of their discounts are the homeowner discount, good student discount, getting a married discount, and many other discounts that are available in certain situations.
  • Keep a clean driving record. Safe driver discounts can range from 10 percent to 20 percent. Maintain a clean driving record for a number of years, usually three to five.
  • Consider UBI policies. Some companies offer usage-based programs. Good drivers can benefit of significantly discounted rates. All they have to do is to let the company monitor the client while driving. If the results are satisfactory, the company can customize prices and provide a better deal.
  • Consider raising deductibles. A driver can lower full coverage costs by agreeing to pay a larger deductible. The larger the deductible amount he agrees to pay, the lower his insurance will cost.
  • Shop online for multiple quotes. The best way a

The Chicago Blackhawks traded Brandon Saad — again — this time in a deal with the Colorado Avalanche.

Multiple reporters (along with Nikita Zadorov‘s agent Dan Milstein) report that the trade happened.

Via The Athletic’s Ryan S. Clark, among others:

Avalanche receive: Brandon Saad ($5 million cap hit after retention) and Dennis Gilbert.

Blackhawks’ side: They retained $1M from Saad’s contract, also gain Nikita Zadorov’s RFA signing rights, and Anton Lindholm.

Blackhawks trade Brandon Saad to Avalanche

According to Cap Friendly, this leaves the Avalanche with almost $10 million in cap space. Adding Saad doesn’t necessarily keep Colorado from seeking Alex Pietrangelo or Taylor Hall, at least technically speaking. But with Ryan Graves and Tyson Jost lingering as remaining RFAs, it seems like the Avalanche are buying in the midrange of the market, rather than going big game hunting. But we’ll see.

Saad somehow is only 27. Considering all he’s been through — plenty of Blackhawks fans probably flinch at the phrase “Brandon Saad trade” — it’s easy to get wrapped up in Artemi Panarin‘s dominance and forget that Saad is quite good.

On paper, it wouldn’t be shocking if Saad ends up being a nice fit for the Avalanche. But he’s not exactly the flashiest one.

This continues a busy Saturday for Colorado, as they also locked up RFAs Andre Burakovsky and Valeri Nichushkin. While this isn’t as exciting as going all-in and convincing Hall and Pietrangelo to buy in for a year, this is

Being a single parent can certainly make you feel stretched thin financially. As someone who was raised by a single mom who worked two full-time jobs to care for my brother and me, I experienced firsthand how much my mom sacrificed to make sure her kids had a roof over their heads and food on the table. And that was during a time when parents could send their kids off to school and not have to worry about hiring a babysitter. 

Fast forward to the present, and I’m amazed at how some of these parents are juggling it all during the COVID-19 era, working from home while their kids are learning remotely. Due to these drastic shifts in our daily lives, there might be more expenses involved — equipment needed for school and increased childcare costs, for a start. 

In these circumstances, it may feel impossible to eke out

  • Americans are either saving more during the pandemic, or struggling to make ends meet. Financial planners say that if you’re in a position to save, now is a great opportunity.
  • To start, examine your income and spending and make a budget. Then, tighten your budget — cut back wherever you can.
  • Next, start saving whatever you can and automate that amount every month. It doesn’t matter how much you put away as long as you’re developing a savings habit.
  • If you can find ways to increase your income or save money through your employer (such as a Flexible Spending Account), jump on those opportunities.

There are two money-saving experiences happening in the US right now. Some are having an easier time saving, with less dining-out expenditures, not commuting, and reducing their discretionary spending in general. Others have been struggling to save thanks to layoffs, reduced hours, furlough, or other reduced-income scenarios. Regardless of your situation, if you want to save money but aren’t sure how, financial planners can help.

Before jumping into tips to help you save more, Corbin Blackwell, a financial planner with Betterment, had this very important message to share if you’re struggling to pay bills due to the pandemic: “It’s OK to put savings on the back burner. Don’t feel guilty for trying to just pay your bills; you might not be in the savings place right now. Some people read articles about how much you

Arsenal’s dinosaur mascot Gunnersaurus has been axed as part of cost-cutting measures in the club.

Jerry Quy, who has played the mascot since its introduction in 1993, worked part-time for the club and was seen as an unnecessary cost with no fans in stadiums.

Quy has also lost his other role at the club doing supporter liaison, especially for away fans, and will not return to it when fans come back. However, sources have told ESPN that he will be allowed to return to the role of mascot when fans return to games.

Arsenal announced in August that they would make 55 redundancies across all departments. While Quy’s departure is part of ongoing cost-saving measures, the loss of his job is not counted in these 55 redundancies as he worked part-time.

Arsenal’s self-sustainable business model relies heavily on matchday income from Emirates Stadium and the ongoing absence of supporters — in addition to the cancellation of concerts and other non-football events — has hit the club particularly hard despite owner Stan Kroenke’s net worth estimated to be $8.3 billion.

Arsenal became the first Premier League team to agree a pay cut with their first-team squad — 12.5% over 12 months, although that was reduced by 7.5% after the Gunners qualified for the Europa League by winning the FA Cup.

The club also terminated the contracts of around 10 members of their scouting network at the end of May, many of whom worked on identifying youth team and academy players.
