Budgeting with N26—helping you manage and save your money

Budgeting with N26—helping you manage and save your money.

Thanks to the N26 app’s push-notifications, you’ll always be in the know of where your money is going. Receive push-notifications immediately after all transactions, including card and mobile payments, ATM withdrawals, direct debits and transfers.

Set daily spending limits, lock or unlock your card and reset your PIN anywhere in the world, 24/7 and directly from the N26 app. After all, you’re in control and it’s you that decides how much you spend, and what you spend your money on.

Thanks to the budgeting features of the N26 app, you’ll know exactly where you spend your money with just a glance at your screen—your free bank account tracks and recognizes your transactions. Thanks to automatic spending categorization, you’ll always receive an up-to-date overview of your current expenses. And with #tags, you can further personalize the system for a customized tracking: #Vicky’sBirthday, #catTree, #SpanishPaella, etc.

N26 Spaces lets you create sub-accounts that allow you to easily budget and save money. These sit alongside your main N26 account, letting you transfer money between them instantly, budget wisely and put funds aside by separating your savings from expenses. Standard accounts can have up to two spaces, while premium accounts can have as many as 10.

Spaces—the starting point to budget all your plans.

You can name your space after its purpose so you feel the motivation needed to save for it. Here’s how to get started:

  1. Go to Spaces in the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen
  2. Select “Create a new space” and give it a name

Shared spaces are a smart way to budget with other people. Easily share the rent, pay bills, or even just create a shared piggy bank for saving with your partner without the need to open a joint account. Each participant can transfer money between the shared space and their own N26 account, and keep track of all transaction activities and progress.

Any N26 customer can be invited to participate in a shared space. However, only N26 premium account holders with either N26 You, Business You or Metal can be the owner of a new shared space. Budgeting with friends and family has never been so simple! Once you’ve created a new space, tap the “+” button in the top right corner to share it with up to 10 people.

You can set rules for each space, allowing you to create standing orders within your spaces. This makes budgeting even faster. It works like a normal standing order but—instead of between two different accounts—you move your money between your spaces and your main account. You can create up to 10 rules for each space.

You only need to set up a rule once, and then the app does the rest of the work for you. Your money will be moved automatically on set dates, making budgeting easier:

  1. Select a space and tap on the 3 dots
  2. Choose “Create a new rule”
  3. Tap “Repeat this transfer” and choose the frequency.
