August. It signals the close of the all-too-fleeting sunshine and relaxation of summer. But that doesn’t mean you have to start stressing about back-to-school shopping. The key to keeping your sanity is to make the most of the last month of summer while also preparing for the upcoming fall season before the anxiety kicks in. With this month’s PowerPerks, you’ll earn up to 5% cash back while getting ahead of your fall to-dos, and hopefully you’ll be able to relax a bit as well.
