Can I save more with Stash?

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.

*Stasher is defined as a Stash customer with at least one investment account and a banking account with Stash who 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 saved 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. All analyses and calculations were made by Stash and do not necessarily reflect Green Dot Bank’s views or positions.

What is Stash?

Stash is a personal finance app that simplifies investing, making it easy and affordable for everyday Americans to build wealth and achieve their financial goals.

Stash was built with a simple philosophy: everyone should have access to investing. Thanks to fractional shares, anyone can invest in the stock market with $5 or less. And along with other investing and saving tools, like the Stock-Back® Card,1 Stash helps more than 5 million people reach their financial goals. (This is not an endorsement or a statement of satisfaction by any Stash client and is defined by the number of clients who have e-signed.)

How does Stash work?

Stash can give you everything you need to build wealth for the long-term. 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 useful, specific advice for things like investing and budgeting.

  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, the Stock-Back® Card,1 budgeting and saving tools, advice and education, and life insurance coverage through Avibra. Depending on the plan you choose, you can also open an individual retirement account (IRA)4 and investment accounts for kids.5

  3. Add money to Stash.
    You can add money to Stash automatically or manually. If you have 5 minutes, you can set up direct deposit to send either all or a part of your paycheck straight to Stash. You can even receive your paycheck up to 2 days early.3

  4. Bank, budget, and create goals
    You can also use our automatic budgeting and saving tools to organize your cash into different spaces,6 create goals, and track your spending.

  5. Invest your way.
    Once your cash is in Stash, you can choose to invest it in fractional shares of thousands of stocks and ETFs with $5 or less, or make purchases with the Stock-Back® Card1 and earn stock on Stash as you spend.
