Make plans for what to do, not what’s due.

Set up your recurring expenses (think power bill, cable, internet) in our app, and we'll do the work of saving for them each month. When you know your bills are covered, you can focus on the fun parts of having money—like saving for a trip to Japan and buying that new bike.

Save toward your goals, automatically.

Goals make it easy to save for the things you want or want to do. There’s no need for spreadsheets or extra apps to budget and track your money. It’s right there inside your Simple checking account, growing bit-by-bit until you’re ready to spend.

Build your savings without even trying.

Turn on Round-up Rules and start saving up effortlessly. Whenever you make a purchase, Simple will round up what you spend to the next whole dollar amount. When the “change” from those transactions reaches or exceeds $5, Simple transfers it to your Protected Goals Account — so easy you won’t even feel it. It’s like a digital change jar... one that adds up to real money in the bank.

Keep track of your money at a glance.

Your transactions tell a story. Add photos and notes to better remember every purchase. And quickly search your account by merchant name, keyword, and hashtags to capture all your important (#freelance) and “important” (#carbparty) purchases.

A little a day goes a long way.

Important! Keep your account safe from fraud

As fraud attempts are on the rise recently — especially related to unemployment funds — help us keep your account safe by following these guidelines.

Use your Simple Account only for your own personal use. Don’t share your account with others or receive funds on behalf of third parties.

Don’t share your username or password with others. Never give out your login information. Simple will never ask you to tell us your password — if any third party makes such a request, it’s an attempt at fraud.

Don’t open an account at someone else’s request. If someone else asks you to open a Simple Account — such as a real estate company, prospective employer, or someone you met online — it is likely an attempt at fraud.

Be alert for unemployment insurance fraud. You may be violating the law and the terms of your Simple Account if you receive deposits of unemployment funds on behalf of someone else. There are state and federal penalties for unemployment insurance fraud (including potential fines and incarceration). If you suspect you are a victim of unemployment fraud, contact the appropriate state fraud hotline listed here.

Don’t receive funds on behalf of a third party. Keep in mind that receiving funds on behalf of a third party violates the terms and conditions of your Simple Account; in such instances, we may restrict and/or close your account and hold the funds while we await direction from enforcement agencies.
