Make holiday gift giving easier in a digital world
More and more people are using their mobile phones to pay bills, make purchases and even give gifts. Here are some fun (and easy) ways you can use digital banking apps to share joy and good cheer this holiday season.
If you can’t travel to see your family and friends over the holidays, your phone might be the best way to stay connected. But did you know it’s also the preferred way to give a gift? According to Zellepay.com, sending money through person-to-person apps is preferred by 38% of respondents while 36% say they plan to give a physical gift.
Here are some other ways digital banking apps can help make the holidays brighter:
The holidays can be a wonderful time of year, but it can also be a stressful time. Using digital banking apps can lessen stress by making the shopping experience simpler and easier.
In addition to making payments, viewing transactions and account balances, most mobile banking apps will let you set an alert that notifies you when your balance drops below a certain level or when a withdrawal is made. That way you can stay on top of your holiday budget. And if you still get cash or a check in your holiday card from grandma, you can deposit it into your account by snapping a photo of it on your device.
