We’re changing the way people feel about their money

A card designed with your goals in mind.

Our crew of engineers, data scientists, artists, behavioral economists and finance gurus show up to work everyday for one reason - to help people better turn their money into happiness.

So we work to create innovative tools that help people become masters of their financial lives. Tools that are useful to everyone, but accessible to anyone. Tools that give people control when they want it, and automation when they don’t. Tools that help people put their money towards what matters most.

Because when we make saving money more intentional, it becomes more fulfilling. Which makes it more motivating. Which means people save more. And that’s makes everyone happy.
