$13.9 million saved in less than a year with automated savings feature N26 Round-Ups

New York - Ahead of World Savings Day, N26 has released new insights on how technology is helping people save money effectively and effortlessly. Less than a year after the company introduced Round-Ups, N26 customers in Europe and the US have seamlessly set aside nearly $13 million with the automated savings feature.

Launched in November 2020, the Round-Ups feature was designed to complement Spaces, N26’s iconic sub-accounts, making saving easier than ever before. When enabled, each payment is automatically rounded up to the nearest dollar and the spare change transferred to a designated Space. Available to all N26 US customers, the automatic savings feature aims to empower regular savings behavior, helping customers grow their savings without having to make a constant and concerted effort to set money aside.

Since the feature was launched, over 12 million Round-Ups transactions have been automatically triggered, a testament of how effective automation is in helping customers build their wealth with minimal effort.

“Mobile banking experiences like N26 have the power to provide innovative tools for customers to feel confident and in control of their finances through the intelligent use of technology. By making the process of saving money as simple and effortless as possible, we can help consumers build up financial confidence and alleviate the stress commonly associated with managing finances,” said Gilles BianRosa, Chief Product Officer at N26.

N26 also offers customers a range of saving and budgeting tools to help them stay on top of their finances. N26 Statistics, for example, gives customers access to important and detailed insights on spending behavior, so that they can easily make more well-informed financial decisions.
