NEWS BY THE NUMBERS 🎓

👺 Apple raises its prices making Apple TV+ $6.99 instead of $4.99. Nice one, Apple. This is a trick, right?

👀 It’s back. Spotify Wrapped 2022 has a rumored release date of December 1st. That means you’ve got just over a month until you’re hit with the embarrassment of your awful taste in music.

💚 Could ‘Green Friday’ be the new Black Friday? Some US retailers are shutting their stores for good this November 25th to encourage people to spend more time outside, instead of promoting over-consumption.

🦜 And finally, Twitter’s struggling to keep hold of its most heavy tweeters. Something Mr Musk’s $44 billion deal can help with, maybe?

✨ MONEY HACK OF THE WEEK ✨

Halloween’s the one time of year you can eat a whole bucket of candy and not feel bad about it 🍭🎃

Maybe just a bit sick, but whatever.

So, free doughnut anyone? 🍩

Head down to a Krispy Kreme in your spookiest costume on October 31st and grab any doughnut of your choice.

And if you don’t have a Halloween costume, throw on a red t-shirt and go as a gas pump

Work smarter, not harder.

But that's not all, we've got nine other food deals like these.

Enjoy this post? Give it a share or send it along to a friend. You never know, it could make a big difference. And of course, if you want to try the best money app in the world for free, just hit this link right here.

Big love. Cleo 💙
