Introducing Two Cents

As the personal finance landscape continues to change, we all have to adapt. To make sure we’re always bringing you the best, we’ve rethought our newsletter.

Two Cents, our new weekly newsletter, brings you all the latest finance news and expert advice. Each week, we’ll highlight trending topics and give you exclusive insights from Trent Hamm, founder of The Simple Dollar.

What you’ll get each week

The latest news

Things might look a little different when you open the email, but we’re still committed to bringing you the best content. Whether through expert testimony or breaking financial news, you’ll still get the financial advice you expect from The Simple Dollar.

Exclusive tips and advice from Trent Hamm

If you’ve been wanting more from Trent, you’re in luck! Two Cents will include content from Trent you can’t find anywhere else.

We’ll start things off with a financial tip directly from Trent. Designed to be something you can immediately put to use, the tip of the week will change with every edition. But that’s not all from Trent. Not only will you get his advice, but coming soon, you’ll also have access to exclusive articles from Trent that only exist inside of Two Cents.

Deals and discounts from our partners

In collaboration with our partners, we’re offering special deals and discounts to our Two Cents readers. You’ll be able to unlock outstanding deals each week.


We’ve decided to try something new. You’ll be able to share Two Cents with friends, family, or anyone you think would enjoy what we have to offer. When you share an edition of Two Cents, you’ll collect points and earn prizes.

How to sign up

Two Cents will launch tomorrow, Tuesday, June 9. Subscribe here to receive everything we have to offer. If you sign up after Tuesday, you’ll get access to the following week’s edition of Two Cents.
