Does Digit have an app?

How is Digit different than a recurring bank savings transfer?

Digit doesn't require you to come up with an arbitrary amount to transfer every month. It adapts to you and saves accordingly. Digit learns when and how much is safe to save based on your spending habits.


Do I need a savings account?

How do I access my Digit savings?

How do I set a savings goal?

Tap "Try adding a personal goal" in the Digit app. Then choose from our suggested goals or create you own. Add a description, emoji for reference, the amount you'd like to save, and when you'd like to save it by and tap "Save". Digit will start setting money aside for your goal.


What can Digit save for?

Anything, really. There's no limit to the number of goals you can set. Use Digit to save for a rainy day, a vacation, or a friend's birthday gift. You can pay down debt or save up money to invest. And you can move your savings to your checking account as often as you wish.

Digit Pay lets you make automatic payments to any major credit card company with money held in Digit. You can activate Digit Pay by setting a "credit card debt" goal in the app.


What is the Digit no-overdraft guarantee?

You should feel confident in Digit saving only what you can safely set aside. In the very unlikely event your account is overdrawn by Digit auto-saving, we'll reimburse the fees for up to 2 instances of overdraft. You can read more about our policy in the Help Center article on overdraft reimbursements.


Where is Digit currently available?

Digit supports over 2,500 banks and credit unions within the United States.


Does Digit work with banks located outside the United States?
