Account Details

  • Earn 1.55% APY on all Protected Goals Account Balances.
  • High-Yield Checking – In addition to your Simple Account, open a Protected Goals Account to earn a higher APY and keep it safe from spending.
  • Simple Goals – Use Goals to stash away money: Save for the unexpected or automate saving for things you want. From a trip to Italy to a new bike.
  • Simple Expenses – Set it & forget: Set up your Expenses one time and going forward, we’ll do the boring work of recreating the Expense for you. That way, when you pay your rent bill, your Expense is already saving up for next month’s bill. Yep, it’s our job now. (You can even split Expenses with a partner when using a Shared Account).
  • Automate Your Savings – Turn on Round-up Rules and start saving up effortlessly. Whenever you make a purchase, Simple will round up what you spend to the next whole dollar amount. When the “change” from those transactions reaches or exceeds $5, Simple transfers it to your Protected Goals Account.
  • Safe-to-Spend® – Spend spontaneously, without derailing your budget or bills (or doing math on the spot...). We take your account balance, subtract your Expenses and Goals, and tell you exactly how much money you have leftover to spend on whatever you want. (Buy the shoes!)
  • Banking Services provided by BBVA USA, Member FDIC. The Simple Visa® Debit Card is issued by BBVA USA pursuant to a license from Visa U.S.A. Inc. and may be used everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted.
