Here’s how you can afford Byte.
May 3, 2019
Your poor bank account. It gives and gives, and it asks so little in return. If you’re worried about tapping it for one more expense, we understand. But we’d like to challenge you a bit.
We cost a lot less than the competition—under $1,900. And let’s face it. Your smile will take you a lot farther than most things in life.
We also make it easy to pay for that smile. Here are four ideas you can use.
1. Check the couch cushions.
Okay, okay. We know you probably don’t have close to it sitting around your house. But you probably do have small sources of money you can tap.
Consider this: Our financing plan comes with a reasonable monthly fee. You’ll pay about $2 per day for a better smile.
Where can you come up with $2? You could:
Ditch Uber for one day per week and ride your bike.
Buy your coffee in bulk, not brewed by baristas.
Listen to Spotify commercials and ditch the monthly fee.
Cut down on Grubhub deliveries and cook at home.
We could keep going, but you get the idea. This is a tiny daily investment. Equally small shifts could get you the cash your smile wants.
2. Cheat the tax man.
No, we’re not suggesting you toss your tax bill. Our proposition is perfectly legal. And if you aren’t trying this trick now, you're leaving money on the table.
Deep in the fine print of your employee manual, you might find a mention of a flexible spending account (FSA). It’s got a secret weapon. The money you put in here isn't taxed.
Your accounting team will take the amount you specify and pop it into your FSA. Only then will the team calculate your salary for taxes.
It’s free money!
You must use that money before the end of the year, so this is a use-it-or-lose-it proposition. Why not let your teeth benefit?
3. Pay yourself first.
This next option can also be used on a pre-tax basis. But if your employer doesn’t offer this program or an FSA, you can do it yourself. Why should the employed get all of the benefits, right?
This option is a health savings account (HSA). You’ll need an insurance plan with a high deductible. You’ll know if you have one. If you have to pay something every time you go to the doctor or dentist, you've got a plan like this.
An HSA helps you cover those expenses. You transfer money into the HSA. You can spend that money with a special credit card.
4. Borrow a bit.
There’s no shame in asking for a little help—and you can do that without losing your shirt in the process.
