What are Budgets?

You can use the Current app to create Budgets directly to keep track of your spending throughout the month. Basic Members can create a budget for one category of spending, while Premium members can create a budget for each category. 

Setting up a budget is easy and can be done right on our app by following these steps: 

  1. Tap the Insights widget to expand it
  2. Tap Set Budget 
  3. Select the category of spending that you'd like to make a budget for, or choose Total Spend to set a budget for all of your transactions 
  4. Manually enter an amount or choose from one of the suggestions and tap Done

Your Budget will be displayed in the Insights widget and you can track your progress each month. The budget will be updated to reflect your spending and you’ll receive an alert* when you get too close to your limit or go over it. 

We will not decline your card if you spend too much in a given category, and you can always edit your budget if necessary.

*Standard text messaging and/or data rates from your wireless service provider may apply.
