The Simple Dollar Announces Inaugural Awards in Personal Finance for 2020

The Simple Dollar Awards

The Simple Dollar, a personal finance website dedicated to simplifying finances, today announced the winners of the inaugural The Simple Dollar Awards. To continue providing well-researched content that empowers readers to make smart financial decisions, the editorial staff analyzed every major brand in each category to determine the best-of-the-best personal finance apps, services, and resources.

"Trent Hamm founded The Simple Dollar in 2006 with the intention of recommending his favorite personal finance solutions to his readers and it has evolved into so much more,” said Adam Morgan, Senior Editor at The Simple Dollar. “To further his original initiative, we decided to highlight 2020’s best personal finance solutions in an objective way. Our editorial staff spent months researching the most affordable, trustworthy, and innovative services and resources in each category. Instead of products like credit cards and personal loans, our awards focus on services and other resources that make people’s lives easier, financially and otherwise."
