Tips and tricks

  • Passwords

    Use complex passwords.  The Duke community can download LastPass  for free from the Office of  Information Technology's website.

  • Start Young

    Start saving and investing young to take advantage of the awesome power of compound interest.

  • Cup of Joe

    Make your own coffee at home.  If you spend just $3.50 every workday for your latte or cappuccino, you're losing over a thousand dollars per year.

  • Tips are Taxable

    Tips are subject to federal income, Social Security, and Medicare taxes.

  • Stop Unwanted Solicitations

    Opt out of credit card solicitations here.

  • Prompt reporting can save you

    If you do not report fraudulent bank account activity within 60 days of the statement where it appears, the entire loss will fall on you.
