Grab a toonie from the savings jar! That's how we don't save in this house, and I am sure we are not alone. The jar is there, and when the kids need a loonie for PJ day at school, or I want a coffee on my way to skating lessons, we grab the change out of the jar. So much for saving, or even having a goal associated with that jar, it's just there...
We all want to save for something, no matter how big or small, but how often do we actually set a value and timeline to that savings goal? Or how often do we grab from those savings, to use elsewhere?
What if I told you there is an app that will challenge you to be more aware of your transactions, to cut back on extra spending, and automatically saves that money in a virtual money jar? It is here, and it is so much fun!
Quber is the ideal app to help you change your spending habits, set savings goals and watch them materialize through actual goal-specific savings on a timeline.
Quber is a new app launching in the coming weeks here in Canada, and it is a fun and unique way to help you save money. Currently partnered with 7 Canadian financial institutions, with more coming, Quber is a virtual money jar with a twist. It allows you to set actions, related to how you spend your money and then assigns your money to a goal specific money jar, to withdraw later.
Having had the opportunity to use Quber and get a feel for how it works, I can see how this will make goal-oriented saving a fun challenge for everyone.
One thing many of us do not often do is look at the everyday transactions that we make. Are you aware of how much you spend each week on coffee or other small purchases? Quber places that spending history at your fingertips, and offers you a way to control and adjust your spending to allow for savings where you didn't realize you could save. The app will even offer suggestions on where to save or set a limit on those transactions.
My current goals are set for 3 months and 7 months from now. I would like $500 for day trips this summer, to be saved by June 30th, and $1,000 for Christmas spending. I will do a little more research into setting a longer-term goal for a family vacation, so I can set a 2-year goal for that one.
Setting personal challenges makes this app a fun way to put savings into your jar. There are also options to save a set dollar value every time you shop a certain store, or even rounding up your transactions to the nearest $1 or even $10. You decide how you save, Quber does the work!
