Around 4 in 10 people are entirely cashless in 2022. More and more purchases have us reaching for cards or digital wallets. It's fast, but things can get tricky when you're with friends.

How do you split a group expense? Are you worried you will spend too much? Where will you all go tonight?

bunq's mobile banking app has some new features to help you out. You may already know how bunq works; now it's even better!

Read on. Let's take a look at your new bunq app features. 

Easy Budgeting with bunq's sub-accounts

Easy Budgeting lets you divide your income into sub-accounts. Assign each of these to a category, like essentials, groceries, nights out, and travel.

Want to pay with your bunq card? Your bunq mobile banking app takes the payment from the correct sub-account automatically. That way you never have to worry about going over any of your budgets. The bunq app takes care of that for you, so you can spend with confidence, anytime, anywhere.

It works great with the 50/30/20 budgeting rule. Set up Easy Budgeting today! 

Our New Activity Tab Guides You to the Best Places

Using the bunq app, you can easily discover places recommended by your friends, while just as easily recommend places yourself. Simply head to the Activities tab in the bunq app to see the places your friends like, and review the places you visited with a simple swipe.
