Avocado toast with mortgage? Yep, it's a thing
Lender plays on internet meme
Millennials collectively groaned when a millionaire gave them some advice: Stop buying avocado toast if you want to buy a home. An online lender is playing on that meme, offering the pricey toast with a mortgage.
SoFi wants to make sure millennials didn't have to choose between this beloved food and a house, The Associated Press reported. The company said Thursday it's offering avocado toast to anyone who takes out a mortgage in July.
“Pundits have unfairly besmirched avocado toast as the reason younger Americans aren’t buying homes,” Joanne Bradford, chief marketing officer of SoFi, said in a press release. “We wanted to help people have their avocado toast and eat it too.”
The ingredients will come in three shipments, SoFi said. More good news: Gluten-free bread is available.
