  1. Cool app! Can you use it with Paypal instead of a checking account?

  2. How is it POSSIBLE for that to be safe, to allow an outside source complete access to your account? I really can’t imagine that.

    1. It’s a lot safer than writing checks, actually! Every time you hand someone a check, you hand them the routing number and full account number for your checking account. Encrypted access online doesn’t give the app that information.

  3. Seems unsafe to me. Especially since there are a lot of new apps that are scams lately.

    1. Hi, Kristy! If you see Caitlin’s response to Ethna above, she points out that it’s actually safer than writing a check. The access is encrypted so that they cannot get vital account information.

  4. I love Digit. I signed up last summer, and I wish I’d discovered it sooner. I’m not a saver by nature, sadly, but Digit makes it totally painless–I got almost to a thousand in about six months (then I needed a car repair and had to take some out). I thought I was saving toward a vacation when I signed up, but then I found out I needed some expensive dental work not covered by my insurance, so now I’m saving toward that. 🙁

    1. Such a bummer! But on the flip side, it’s nice that money was there for the unexpected emergency. I’m glad you like using it. 🙂

  5. I heard about digit from a guy on my morning radio show. He was talking about it one day. I downloaded it, and then I completely forgot to set it up, haha. I’ll have to check into that. I’m curious though if it will work for us. We pay our bills every two weeks (every payday). So when we get paid, we pay all of our bills that will need to be paid for the next two weeks, that way we don’t forget something needs paid, and accidentally spend it on something we should have waited for. Sometimes we have a good cushion in our bank account until the next payday, and sometimes, we don’t have a very good cushion at all, and are scraping by. And sometimes we have a big cushion because of one reason or another, such as, income tax time, or a bonus check from work, that we are holding in our account until we decide what we want to do with it… I wonder if Digit will see that as an opportunity to move a higher amount than would be typical into our digit savings account.

    1. Digit will review your spending and move amounts applicable to your spending habits. But you also have the option to save more for other goals too! I have a rainy day fund and a Christmas one. 🙂
