If you keep cash in a stan­dard debit ac­count, in­fla­tion is slowly drain­ing your sav­ings. As this chart shows, the buy­ing power of the U.S. dol­lar has de­clined dramatically over the past two decades. A $100 bill stashed in no-in­ter­est sav­ings in 1997 is now worth only $65 when ad­justed for in­fla­tion, while $100 in gold has in­creased to $303 – a pow­er­ful rea­son to use gold for your ev­ery­day spend­ing needs. trade wars, and re­ces­sions. If there’s a melt­down, you know gold will still be there, and your boat won’t have dis­ap­peared in a puff of pix­els.

For­tu­nately, it’s eas­ier than ever to save and spend with gold. With the new Glint app, you’re just min­utes away from own­ing phys­i­cal gold. Whether you buy $10 or $10 mil­lion in gold, ev­ery dol­lar of gold is owned by you, in your name, and sits locked away in a Swiss vault with the com­pany trusted to hold the world’s bul­lion: Brink’s. Sim­ply down­load the app, reg­is­ter, and trans­fer dol­lars from your debit ac­count. Glint pur­chases the gold im­me­di­ately, and in­sures it with Lloyds of London.

While Glint helps pro­tect your sav­ings, it also en­ables you to beat in­fla­tion by let­ting you spend gold. That’s right, you can use the app or the Glint debit card to pay your bills wher­ever Master­card® is ac­cepted. The firm’s tech­nol­ogy con­verts the value of your gold into dol­lars in real time, mean­ing you can also use an ATM to with­draw cash against your gold ac­count. But it’s the abil­ity to spend gold that re­ally makes a dif­fer­ence for your boat fund. At cur­rent in­fla­tion rates, the U.S. dol­lar is los­ing 3% of its buy­ing power each year, so any money you have sit­ting in stan­dard sav­ings or check­ing ac­count is worth less ev­ery day. Gold doesn’t do that.

With a Glint gold ac­count, you win two ways: You pro­tect your sav­ings from volatile mar­kets, and your cash hold­ings don’t de­pre­ci­ate. Which puts you and your fam­ily that much closer to a beau­ti­ful new boat. As Walt Disney said, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pur­sue them.”
