Welcome to the Chime Weekly Roundup! Each week we bring you a roundup of the best money tips, tricks, and hacks that will help you, and your friends, lead healthier financial lives.

Whether it’s paying taxes, being aware of what you pay in bank fees, or having the money-talk with the roomies, it’s never a bad time to assess how effectively you are managing your money. Even an effort to make small changes can have a big effect on your financial wellness, and there’s no better time than now to get started.

1. What to say to your friend who is paying bank fees and doesn’t know it…

Time to investigate. Most people are getting charged some kind of bank fee and not realizing it’s happening. Call your bank and ask what kind of fees they charge, and if you’ve been charged for any of those recently. If you decide you don’t want to pay fees, you could benefit from switching to a bank that does profit by charging its members fees.
