bunq Update 14: Introducing the new bunq app

At bunq Update 14, we took our biggest step in creating the best banking experience yet: a brand new bunq app, released in Public Beta.

An exclusive group of 200 users were part of this amazing experience. They were the first to test the new bunq app and gave us valuable feedback.

Shortly after, all bunq users got to enjoy the new app and all its benefits. Let's have a look at what the bunq app is all about!

We are bunq - bank of The Free 🌈

We’ve listened to your feedback and put all the things you love in one product, with an updated look to reflect its simplicity.

Rather than just building another transparent, socially conscious bank we took it one step further and built your money swiss army knife, offering you plenty of options that fit your lifestyle. You get the freedom to spend, save and invest your money whichever way you like.

We do this by radically improving banking and the way we deal with money 💰

With bunq you save time, money and CO2 - and the best part is, you do it all at once. As usual, with zero effort, but with the security of a real bank.

It cannot get easier! 🙌

We have simplified everything. Take a look at our beautiful, clean new website to find out more about bunq and its benefits!

In the new app, you can explore everything bunq has to offer with 4 simple tabs:

  • Find everything that’s yours under “me” - like money, time or CO2 saved
  • Check out “us” to see what we achieved together - like total CO2 saved by all bunq users, total investments or total donations. Check out the latest blog posts and Together topics here too!
  • See your “profile” for everything that relates to you - like getting help when you need it
  • Tap “camera” to scan invoices or receipts

Yep, that’s it! Easy, isn’t it? No worries, you can still find all the cool stuff you know and love - just organized Marie Kondo style!

You will spot a couple of new things in the bunq app, like...

Common Goals 🧑‍🤝‍🧑

With Common Goals, you can support what matters to you. Set up a Common Goal, and save together to support your charity! Whether it's supporting a local business or helping to rid the ocean of plastic, all it takes is a tap in the app and you can start collecting donations!

Find all the information about Common Goals here.

Tribes 🌳🌳🌳

Planting trees is now even more fun! bunq Tribes lets you multiply your green impact together with your friends.

You can see which tribe has planted the most trees straight through the app. Want to increase your ranking? Simply invite more friends. Let the games begin!
