IFTTT Rules are supercharging your savings!

25 Feb, 2020


Have you tried setting IFTTT (If This Then That) rules to your goals? They work by connecting Qapital to other apps you love and make it even easier to save with Qapital. For instance, you can connect Qapital to your Fitbit app so that you save a set amount every time you reach your daily step goal. Simple, right? Even more simple – saving with it!  


Users with IFTTT rules save almost double over a 30-day period than those without them. In dollar terms, IFTTT users save an average of $407 in a month while for non-users the figure is $235.


It’s a two-horse race for the most popular IFTTT rule, with Fitbit just edging out Uber. But it seems you guys like taking rides a little more than you like working out as Uber leads the way when it comes to the total number of actual savings events. 




There are nine ways to save with IFTTT:


  • Facebook: Take advantage of your Facebook fixation by saving every time you post.
  • Fitbit: Reward yourself by saving toward a goal every time you hit your daily step goal.
  • Twitter: Give your goal a boost every time your favorite user tweets.
  • Square: Save toward a big dream every time you make a little sale.
  • Strava: Save for a vacation whenever you workout (you’ve earned it).
  • YouTube: Killing time watching videos? Now you can save every time you like one.
  • Finance: Playing the markets? Play to win by saving when the S&P 500 Index falls.
  • Google Assistant & Amazon Alexa: Say a certain phrase, save a certain amount. Certain savings!
