Staying on track with your monthly spending budget can be a challenge, but with the help of Yondr, it's easier than ever. Use Yondr to see exactly where your money is going with spend analytics, turn on real-time transaction notifications, and set spending limits all within the app.

See what you're spending on with spend analytics

Keeping track of your spending is an important step in gaining control of your finances and achieving your financial goals. By understanding where your money is going, you can identify areas where you may be overspending, and make adjustments to your budget accordingly.

Yondr's spend analytics feature gives you a clear overview of your spending habits, so you can see where you're overspending and where you can cut back. This can help you identify areas where you can make changes to your budget to help you stay on track.

Use spend analytics to see exactly where your money is going across different categories each month.

Here's how:

  1. Tap on 'All spend highlights' on the home screen
  2. From there you can select to view your spending habits from the last 30/60/90/120 days.

Real-time spend notifications

Real-time spend notifications can be a powerful tool in helping you manage your monthly spending budget. You'll be notified every time you make a purchase, so you can keep an eye on your spending to avoid impulse buying and overspending.

These notifications also help you to keep a close eye on your account activity. With real-time notifications, you can quickly detect any unusual transactions or patterns of spending that may indicate fraudulent activity.

Real-time spend notifications can help you be more aware of your spending habits by alerting you each time you pay.

Set spending limits

Using Yondr, you can create different virtual cards for different spending categories such as subscriptions or dining out. Once you have created your virtual cards, you can set the amount that you are comfortable spending in each category, and the app will track your spending and send you notifications when you are getting close to your limit. This way you can ensure that you don't overspend on any category and stay within your overall budget.
