Frequently asked questions

How does Stash help me budget and save?chevron icon

As a saving, investing, and budgeting app, your Stash account comes with tools you can use to better manage your finances. Used together, they can help you get the most out of every dollar you earn and start building wealth.

Plan your budget
Our goals feature lets you separate the cash in your bank account into spaces for designated purposes. You can use this feature as a budget planner for rent, bills, groceries, an emergency fund, or your next vacation—your goals are completely customizable!6 You can even set a target date and dollar amount for each goal, and we’ll send you reminders to save to keep you on track.

Spending tracking and insights
We track your transactions in real-time and sort your spending into categories, such as Food & Drink, Shopping, and Bills. We also offer helpful insights into where your money is going.7 You can use this data analysis to identity areas you could cut back and save.

Automatic tools
You can pay your recurring bills automatically from your Stash banking account1, helping you avoid late fees or interest charges. We also offer automated saving and investing tools like round-ups, which automatically sets aside the spare change from your purchases for you to save or invest.

Early payday
Want to make Stash your complete financial home? Set up direct deposit for your pay and/or benefits.

Not only can you budget your paycheck easier and protect more of your money from hidden fees, but you could also get your pay up to 2 days earlier3 than your coworkers. That’s extra time you can use to pay your bills, plan your budget, and set aside cash to save and invest.

Can I save more with Stash?chevron icon

Yes! On average, Stashers save 3x more than the average American.* How? By using our unique combination of saving, banking, and investing tools to take control of their money—and their financial lives.

Stash can help you stick to a budget, save and invest regularly, and track your purchases—so you can start saving more and spending less. And when you do spend, our Stock-Back® Card1 rewards you with pieces of stocks and funds that have long-term growth potential. We’ll also be there for every step of your financial journey, providing customized advice and unlimited financial education.

*Stasher is defined as a Stash user with at least one investment account and a banking account with Stash and has received a direct deposit to their banking account in the last 30 days (as of March 16, 2020). Stashers saved approximately $340 per month on average during this time. This is calculated through a lookback at all money put into all of the Stash accounts listed above subtracted by the amount of money taken out of these accounts. The average American saves an average of $96 per month in 2019. This is calculated by multiplying the personal saving rate (generally viewed as the portion of personal income that is used either to provide funds to capital markets or to invest in real assets such as residences) and percentage of disposable income (money that households have available for spending and saving after income taxes have been accounted for), and then dividing by the number of months in a year. See here for more information. Stash does not offer an interest-bearing savings account.

How does Stash work?chevron icon

Stash can give you everything you need to manage your money and get more out of your paycheck. Here’s how Stash works.

  1. Answer a few questions
    When you first join Stash, we’ll get to know you by asking some questions. These help us understand your financial goals and provide you with useful advice for everything from budgeting to investing.

  2. Pick a plan
    Then, you’ll pick your subscription plan, starting at just $1/month.
    With Stash, you always get access to investing with a personal brokerage account, online banking,1 budgeting and saving tools, the Stock-Back® Card, and advice and education. Depending on the plan you choose, you can also add a retirement account (IRA) and custodial investment accounts for kids.

  3. Add money to Stash
    You can add money to Stash in two ways: direct deposit with early payday3 or link another bank to make recurring or one-time transfers.

  4. Bank, budget, and create goals
    Use our bank account and automatic budgeting and saving tools to organize your cash into different spaces,6 create goals, and track your spending.7

  5. Invest in fractional shares
    Once you’ve added cash to invest, you can immediately start investing in fractional shares of thousands of stocks and ETFs with $1 or less. Stash is built for long-term investing, not day-trading, so we only trade during four trading windows every day. (Note: Availability of trading windows is dependent on market conditions and may be subject to limitations.)

  6. Earn stock rewards
    Spend with your virtual or physical Stock-Back® Card to start earning pieces of stock from Stash as rewards for your everyday spending.1
