Venmo is a free digital wallet that allows you to pay and request money from your friends.
What would you use Venmo for?
Splitting a lunch bill
Paying your friend half of a cab fare
Sending your roommate your half of the rent or utilities
Free? Yes. Add your bank or debit card from most banks and your payments are free! If you collect money, you can send it to your bank for free. Seriously, ask your friends if you don’t believe me.
Reasons you should get Venmo:
- Saves time
- Makes it super easy to get your money back from friends
- Way easier than trying to break a $20
Venmo has become such a habit that I will always pay for all of lunch and then just bill my friends their exact portion. Saves the cashier from having to swipe 4 cards, and we can get out of there faster and on to the next adventure.
Venmo (or rather its parent company Braintree) was purchased by PayPal, so you money is safe and secure. And lets be honest, it is a lot better than carrying a wad of cash around, and hounding your friends for weeks trying to get them to pay you back.
So just download Venmo from the App Store, and make your life better.
