PAYING BILLS, SETTLING UP WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY
Sandra meets her friend Anne at the gastropub for mac and cheese, a couple of beers, and the latest gossip about her unhappy ex before taking the train back to her apartment. Anne grabs the check and pays with her credit card, while Sandra fishes for not-enough cash in her purse. Pulling out her mobile phone, Sandra clicks on her bank app and sends Anne money.
“Using my bank app is like having a debit card for friends on your phone.”
Ahmet sits down once a month and pays the bills from his bank account. Today, Ahmet follows his colleague Mehmet down the cafeteria line at the hospital. Mehmet pays for his lunch, which embarrasses Ahmet. Fortunately, Ahmet has plenty of cash with him and discretely tucks bills in Mehmet’s jacket pocket.
“I pay our bills through the bank’s site, so I can keep track of our finances in one spot.”
