How does savings work with Albert?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

Saving with Albert is a simple and effective way to build up your savings without having to think about it too much. Whether you want to save a specific amount or let Albert determine it for you, there are options to suit your needs.

One of the ways to save with Albert is through Smart Savings. This feature automatically analyzes your income and spending patterns to determine how much you can afford to save. Albert then transfers this amount from your linked bank account to your Savings within the app. The great thing about Smart Savings is that it adjusts the saving amount based on your financial situation, so you won’t be saving more than you can comfortably afford.

If you prefer more control over your savings, you can choose to save a fixed amount on a set schedule. This is particularly useful if you have specific savings goals or want to save a certain amount each month. You can set up a schedule that suits you, whether it’s weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, and Albert will transfer the designated amount from your bank account to your Savings at the chosen intervals.

To get started with saving in Albert, you’ll need to link your bank account. This allows Albert to securely access your transaction history and analyze your finances. Rest assured, Albert uses bank-level security measures to protect your information.

Once your bank account is linked, Albert will start monitoring your income and spending habits. It will then calculate an appropriate savings amount based on your financial situation. You can always adjust the savings amount or schedule to better align with your goals.

Your savings will be held in the Savings section within the Albert app. You can easily track your progress and see how much you’ve saved over time. It’s a great way to stay motivated and see the impact of your savings efforts.

If you ever need to access your savings, you can transfer the money back to your linked bank account within the app. This ensures that your savings are always accessible when you need them.

In my personal experience, saving with Albert has been incredibly helpful. The automatic savings transfers make it effortless to consistently save money without even thinking about it. I love the flexibility of being able to choose between Smart Savings or a fixed amount, depending on my financial goals at any given time. It has definitely made a positive impact on my savings habits and allowed me to build up a financial cushion.

The savings feature in Albert is a convenient and effective tool for anyone looking to save money. Whether you prefer a hands-off approach with Smart Savings or a more hands-on approach with fixed amounts and schedules, Albert has you covered. Give it a try and start building your savings today!
