Protect yourself and avoid over-shopping by separating
your spending money from your primary bank account.
You use your checking account to make lots of important payments - rent or mortgage, car payment, insurance, a transfer to savings. But, it's easy to lose track and overspend with your debit card if you use the same account for your everyday purchases.
We offer a better approach. Move your spending money to an Akimbo Card, then you'll have exactly what you need for your regular bills. Plus, if your debit card is ever comprised - you know most of your money is still safe in your bank account.
Set an amount that works for you. You can load your card regularly with direct deposit and on your schedule with a linked bank account.2
Learning to budget comes naturally, since you can't spend more than the available balance on the card.
Plus, using any device, you can review your balance, personalize transactions, set up text1 alerts, and even send a money request.
Load all or just a portion of your paycheck automatically.
