What are Goals, and how do I use them?

You can use Goals to set money aside (so it's hidden from your Safe-to-Spend) while keeping it handy when you need it.

Goals are a pretty customizable feature, and there are a lot of ways to use them. You can set money aside instantly, or save over time. You can easily move money in and out, and you can even make it so certain types of transactions are automatically spent from a Goal.

Lots of folks use Goals for day-to-day budgeting, or to save up for once-in-a-lifetime expenses like a big trip, creating a business, or buying a house.

Goals and your available balance

Goals are essentially a visual record-keeping and labeling system; putting funds in a Goal removes them from your Safe-to-Spend, but they're still included in your available balance, and you can still use them to make purchases.

That means it's possible to overspend your Goals. When this happens, a banner will pop up to notify you. (You'll see the banner after logging in on the web, or on the Goals tab of the mobile app.) To settle up, you can spend from a Goal or transfer money out of your Goals.
