When you were a kid you might have had a piggy bank or an old jar where you stashed your spare coins. Depending on what you were saving for, you might have even put money for one goal in a single container and money for a different goal in another, making it easy to know how much you had saved for each individual goal. Traditional banking makes it much harder to separate funds for different uses. That’s because when you log in, your money is just sitting there in one lump sum. How can you separate funds for an emergency, a vacation, a new car, the holidays, or other goals from one another? Without buckets or boundaries, it can be all too easy to “dip” into your vacation fund for an emergency medical expense. The struggle is real, until now.
Introducing Payactiv’s new and improved Goal-Based Savings tool. When you apply for a Payactiv Visa® Card*, you can set savings goals for anything you want, in individual “buckets”. SmartSave takes it one step further by making intelligent insights into how much is safe to save from each paycheck. If your goal is too ambitious, SmartSave will let you know so you can adjust accordingly.
When your goal looks good, confirm it to start automatically saving every day. No calculators, no spreadsheets. Just hassle-free goal saving. Set as many goals as you like and manage them all in one place in the Payactiv App1. Pause a goal and access what you already saved anytime with your Payactiv Visa Card. Watch your savings grow each day and before you know it, you’ll have enough for a rainy day or a sunny day at the beach.
You need an active Payactiv Visa Card to use Goal-Based Savings. There is no cost to apply for the card and it only takes a few minutes. After that, it’s just a few more steps to get your goal set up.
The easiest way to fund your goal is by setting up Direct Deposit to the Payactiv Card. That means that every time you get paid on the Payactiv Card, you’ll be able to automatically set money aside without thinking about it! The second way to fund your goal is to manually add funds from another debit or prepaid card. The third option is only available to employees with Payactiv Earned Wage Access (EWA). With EWA, you can automatically set aside funds from your earned wages to go towards your goals.
With only 24 hours in the day, saving and budgeting can seem like an overwhelming task for anyone. That’s why we built a financial wellness tool and an all-in-one wallet for all your financial needs. The free Payactiv app helps you save up to 85% on Rx prescriptions and other discounts. Learn about your spending with SmartSpend when you link an existing bank account. It’s free and safe to sign up.
So what are you waiting for? Apply for the Payactiv Visa Card to start using SmartSave and Payactiv’s Goal-Based Savings feature.
