How Much Does Penny Cost?
Penny is free. It makes money when users follow its advice and sign up for products and services that help them save money.
How Does Penny Work?
Penny uses an interface we are all comfortable: texting. The software behaves as a friend called Penny that sends you text messages to warn you of an impending bill, give you money saving tips, and help you stick to a budget.
The first step is to link all your bank accounts and credit or debit cards. Penny has bank level security and cannot be used, even by you, to move or spend money.
How Is Penny Better Than Other Money Management Apps?
Penny is easy and fun to use. Setting up your account and connecting it to all your financial accounts will take a few minutes, but it's an excellent tool for managing your budget and control your spending.
