Northwestern Mutual: 7 Ways to Use a Bonus

Share This Post

MILWAUKEE - November 17, 2022 - (

Employees who just received a bonus at work might be wondering how to spend (or save) it. Here are a few options to consider when deciding what to do with funds from a bonus payment:

1. Save it

A bonus is a great opportunity to pad a savings account or build out an emergency fund. Bonus recipients may also see this as a chance to sock the money away and start saving for something big; this could mean saving more for retirement or another long-term financial goal like a down payment on a house or a car. 

2. Invest it

A bonus can also be an opportunity for savers to put more in their 401(k), IRA, or other retirement investments. Investors who have already maxed out their 401(k) contributions for the year or who just want to explore other avenues for investments may also want to invest the money outside of their retirement accounts. If investors are working with an advisor, the financial advisor may be able to assist in choosing stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other assets. 

3. Use it to pay down debt

A cash infusion can be a good occasion to pay off any outstanding debts. It may be enough to pay off the last of student loan debt or the rest of a car loan. People with high-interest debt, like credit card debt, can use their bonus to pay it down and save money on interest in the long run.

5. Make a down payment on a big purchase

A bonus could help someone reach a big financial goal they've been saving for. If a bonus is big enough, and the buyer will be able to consistently afford the monthly payments after the down payment, it could be a good time to make a down payment on a big purchase like a house or a car. 

6. Take a vacation

Anyone who has been working hard and hasn't had a chance to take a break might see a bonus as a chance to fund a relaxing vacation. Whether this is a dream vacation or a quick weekend trip to somewhere local, this is an opportunity to take time to recharge and come back to work refreshed and ready to take on new challenges.

7. Engage in lifelong learning

One of the most important things anyone can do with a bonus is invest in themselves. This could mean using the bonus to pay for lifelong learning, such as classes, seminars, or conferences. Doing this can lead to learning new skills, staying up-to-date in an industry, and meeting new people. Plus, it's a great way to network.

Introducing the New Co-Host of Kanpai Media’s OverDogs Podcast, Platinum Mike Perry

Overdogs Podcast Episode 7: An Hour and a Half of Uncensored Conversations with Darren Till + Yoel Romero, and Hosts Ice Bagz, Mac Mally, and New Co-Host Platinum Mike Perry.

Today, the Overdogs Podcast drops another banger episode featuring host @IceBagz_, co-host @Mac Mally, and new Co-Host @Platinum Mike Perry with guests Darren Till and Yoel Romero. 

Mike Perry is the “toughest human being on the planet,” according to Joe Rogan, and he makes his podcast hosting debut with old foe Darren Till as his very first guest. 

Platinum Mike Perry Said: "I'm stoked to be part of the Kanpai Media fam and share my fighting experience, perspective, and journey on the OverDogs Podcast — it's for sure one of the best shows out there in the Combat Sports world and I can't wait to connect with all the 2MM fans out there that have watched the show so far and also give back to my fanbase and sport!"

Darren Till and Mike Perry go toe to toe for 40 minutes in this wild, uncensored exchange live on air. In the opening minutes, Till tells Perry, “I just wanna fight you and knock you clean out.” Till later added, “Your specialty is power and pure toughness. My specialty is beating people like you.” Till and the team give their prediction for Alex Pereira vs Jiri Prochazka at UFC 295.

They all discuss the probability of Mike Perry fighting Logan Paul if Dillon Danis pulls out and the suit by Logan’s fiance, Nina, against Danis. Mike talks about his new contract with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.

@IceBagz_ said: "We're thrilled to welcome Platinum Mike Perry as a new co-host to the OverDogs Podcast family, he's no doubt already added a layer of excitement and relevancy to the show as we are in the works of scaling the series to other premium leagues, conversation verticals and cultures, as we continue our exciting journey in scaling the podcast."

Till candidly discusses his business that was sued and later sold off. Finally, Darren Till and Mike Perry verbally agreed to fight in approximately 8 months in the boxing or bare-knuckle ring.

Yoel Romero talks about his car chase in Jordan with Mike Perry, his next opponent, and his controversial Israel Adesanya’s loss at UFC 248 that changed the trajectory of his MMA career. Yoel also lays out his plan for the UFC middleweight division, Sean Strickland’s first title defense, Dricus Du Plessis and Jared Cannonier.

“If he had more time to recover, the fight would have been different.” Yoel shared his feelings that Israel Adesanya needed more rest after his KO loss at UFC 281 to Alex Pereira and KO win just 5 months later at UFC 287.

Yoel also hints at who his next fight will be with. Watch the episode to see who Yoel Romero will be in the octagon with.
