10 Things You're Doing Wrong With Your Money

Reposted from http://www.buzzfeed.com/usaa/10-things-youre-probably-doing-wrong-with-your-money

1. Overpaying for coffee each morning.

If you spend $4 a day on coffee, that’s $20 a week… and close to $1,000 per year. You could have just made coffee at home and invested all that money instead!

2. Paying ridiculous ATM fees.

10 Things You're Probably Doing Wrong With Your Money
It’s just too easy to rack up fees by using ATMs that aren’t on your bank’s network. That’s money you are paying in order to use your own money. Not cool.

3. Buying things you don’t need.

If you have to wonder where you’re going to store your new sweater, you probably don’t need it. Save that money instead for something you ACTUALLY need.

4. Paying interest on your credit card balance.

Always pay off the balance on time so you avoid those insane interest rates. Or else you’re just being charged extra money to spend money in the first place.

5. Not paying for things in cash.

Using cash physically limits you from overspending, and forces you to think harder about a purchase before you make it.

6. Paying those subscriptions each month.

Internet tv, cable, your phone’s data plan, streaming music — it all adds up. Cut out the things you don’t really need, and enjoy having a full bank account instead.

7. Not putting enough money into savings.

You should be putting at least 20% of your paycheck into a savings account. Make this a priority. Now!

8. Using too many credit cards.

When you spread your purchases out over multiple cards, it’s tough to keep track of your spending. This can also hurt your credit score if you maintain a balance on all of them.

9. Not automating your bill payments.

Avoid late fees by setting up your bank account to pay the bills automatically. Don’t wait until the last minute and risk being late.

10. Buying lunch every day.

This is a no-brainer. $8 a day, $40 a week… you’ll easily drop $2,000 in a year. A good chunk of that could have gone to your 401k!

Shipping & Delivery

We ship within Canada and the United States via FedEx with expedited 2-Day shipping.

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International, which is usually in transit for 5-7 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with FedEx, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Signatures are required on all orders.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
