Predicting your future balance just got better than ever!

Whether you’re online shopping, booking future experiences or investing in something you love, there’s always one question: can you afford it? bunq is here to answer that!

A year ago, we let you check your future balance at a glance. You could easily see if you can afford to buy those new running shoes next Tuesday, right in your bunq app. Magic - and data - made it easy for us to give you these valuable tips and help you plan better.

Since then, we’ve seen plenty of you making responsible and informed spending decisions and we were so happy! It made us think if there’s a way for bunq to support you even more, give you better insights and make your life even easier.

The answer is...yes, there is, and we just made it happen! 🙌

Need to buy something and not sure if you can afford it? No problem: the bunq app can now predict your future balance better than ever, so you know exactly how much you can spend.

We greatly improved Future Balance for you, making it much more accurate than before! ⬆️
