17 Dec, 2015 | Product Features

You can already save for a Goal together. Now you can talk about what to do next.

Qapital’s Joint Goal feature is perfect for saving money for the things that you want to do with the people you love. Now we’re taking it a step further with Goal Chat.

Goal Chat works just like your favorite messaging apps. You and your co-savers see your Join Goalprogress while Goal Chat lets cheer each other on as you progress toward the finish line – right in the app!

Here’s how Goal Chat can supercharge your Joint Goals:

Simplify a trip
Are you saving for a trip with your other half? Share flight deals, hotel or AirBnB listings and restaurant options to help keep you excited about your vacation!

Group gifts made easy
No more endless email chains or bickering over who contributed what to a friend’s birthday gift or big bachelor party in Vegas. With Goal Chat, you can organize it all in one place, down to the who wraps the gift.

Keep it simple
No more long email threads or group texts. Use the space you’re already sharing to save money for the rest of those essential details. Keep money out of your day to day conversations and put it where it belongs: with your everyday banking in Qapital.

Get closer 
Saving money means more than just the cold, hard cash. Goal Chat lets you stay in touch during the day with the people you love to save with. When you hit your Goal, you can celebrate in the app, together!

How to set up Goal Chat

To get started with this new feature, update to the latest version of Qapital and set up a Joint Goal by inviting friends to a new or existing Goal. Do this by tapping the two people in the top right-hand corner of the Goal page.

Once they accept the invitation invited them, you’ll see a banner at the bottom that says Add a comment. From there you can write a note or send a photo. And yes, we do support emojis.

As a holiday gift from us to you and yours, if you set up a Joint Goal between December 17 and December 31, we’ll give you and your co-savers $10 toward that Goal! Please note there is a limit of one pay-out per account for this bonus. Get started now!
