Round-up Rules

Round-up Rules allow you to build up your savings with no effort required. All you do is use your Simple checking account as usual. We’ll help you tuck funds away for another day by moving the funds into your Protected Goals Account.

Cool, but how does it actually work?

With Simple Round-up Rules, any settled debit transaction (card, Instant Transfer, ACH, etc.) is rounded up to the next full dollar amount. If the charge is for a whole dollar, a dollar will be rounded up. In order to avoid cluttering your activity feed, we’ll wait until the total amount of Round Up funds equals at least $5, and then we’ll transfer the funds from your checking on over to your Savings Goal in your Protected Goal Account.

Okay, I get it. I want it. What now?

You’ll need to opt in on our web app, but you’ll get a mobile push whenever money is transferred to your Protected Goals Account. You’ll also be able to see the transfer in your activity.

Here's what to do:

  1. Sign in to your Simple account on the web.
  2. Hover your mouse over your name in the upper right corner.
  3. Click on Rules.
  4. Toggle Round-up Rules on. Optintoroundup

That’s it. Now start saving!

FAQs


Are there any requirements? How do I set it up?
There aren’t any specific account requirements, but you must have both a Checking and Protected Goal Account.

What if I don't have enough in my Safe-to-Spend?
Great question. If you have less than your Round-up transfer amount in your Safe-to-Spend, we’ll wait and try again later. Once you have enough funds in your Safe-to-Spend, we’ll move the funds to your Savings Goal

Can I use this on my Shared account?
You sure can! It will round your shared transactions and deposit the excess into your shared Protected Goal Account.

Whoa, why did my Round-up happen today? I haven’t used my card or anything.
Since transaction amounts can vary slightly during the settlement process we’ll wait for your transactions to completely settle before we contribute funds to your next Round-up.

How do I see how much I've saved?
If you’re curious to see how much you’ve saved so far with Round-up Rules go back to where you toggled it on. We'll show you how much you've saved this month and saved over time. You’ll also be able to see Round-up transfers in your activity whenever they happen. Rounduptotals

Important! This account is for your personal use only

An increasing number of customers are being targeted by fraud scams. Before you apply, review these guidelines to help prevent you from being involved in fraudulent activity.

Do not open an account on behalf of someone else
If anyone asks you to open a Simple Account to receive funds, it is an attempt at fraud. Common fraud attempts include requesting that you open an account to receive a gift or bonus offer, obtain a job or job training, or help someone else receive funds (such as unemployment benefits).

Do not share your login or account information with anyone
Neither Simple nor any other legitimate institution will ever ask for your account information. If any third party requests your Simple Account login information, it is an attempt at fraud. Sharing your account information with another person or allowing someone else to use your account to receive funds is a violation of the Simple Deposit Account Agreement terms and conditions and can expose you to fraud.

Actions we may take if fraud is suspected

We take fraud and security very seriously at Simple, and take rapid action in the instance of suspected fraud attempts.

We may freeze and close accounts
We may freeze and close accounts if fraudulent activity is suspected, including the following circumstances:

We will report fraud attempts
We are responsible for reporting fraud attempts to authorities, including attempted unemployment fraud. 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.
