Putting more on principal, to reduce the mortgage, adding onto your mortgage payments is a no-brainer.

I would say take a minute and think about where you are putting that money. I'm not adding anything to pay a mortgage with a rate in the 3s.

It may not be relevant for any mortgage, IMHO. Better to save/invest and be able to pay off the mortgage than sink it into a house bit by bit.
