Putting aside money is like playing sports.

We all know, deep down, that it would be a good idea to do it.

But yet, we rarely really want to … and often, we know we should be doing more.

And it’s the same when it comes to saving. We know that saving money is important: to protect ourselves in the event of a problem, or to be able to finance our projects for the future.

However, many of us don’t save enough every month.

Fortunately, saving money has just gotten a lot easier with the recent popularity of auto savings apps.

They are also a good alternative to creating a full budget for those who are starting from scratch, or those who have never managed to find their happiness in a monthly budget .

Their goal is to make saving money a passive and painless process .

In this article, we’ll walk you through the best auto savings apps, their benefits, and their limitations.

Mocha

Moka’s goal? Help you achieve your financial goals by rounding off your purchases and, if you wish, investing your loose change.

The application connects securely to your bank account, automatically rounds the amount of each of your purchases up to the next euro, and sets aside the difference .

Ideal for the heads in the air who can’t manage to put money aside regularly.

And depending on the level of savings you want to achieve, you can multiply your rounding up to 8 times .

Bruno

Packshot of the Bruno savings app

Note

? In November 2020, Bruno announced that he was ending his services. One less fintech in the field, which nevertheless has the potential of automatic savings apps.

Bruno was also an application that allows you to save to finance your projects .

It was a smart savings account that saved for you . Bruno analyzed your daily expenses to regularly suggest amounts to set aside according to your situation.

For that, Bruno’s chatbot contacted you via Facebook Messenger and offered to set aside a sum – which you could accept or refuse.

Your savings were then placed in a secure account. You can withdraw these sums whenever you want.

As a bonus

Today, more and more neobanks are offering features similar to automatic savings apps directly from your bank account, including:

  • Automatic rounding , now available at N26 and Revolut
  • One-off and automatic transfers , which are obviously also supported.

The savings features of neobanks are therefore rarely as complete as the apps for saving, but they can be a good compromise if your needs are limited to rounding or transfers.
