Saving money doesn’t have to be hard. Rounding is the easy-as, no-stress way to save money without even thinking about it.

What is Rounding? Rounding in Debut lets you automatically add a little bit to your savings every time you spend. When you buy something or a bill goes out, Debut will round up to the nearest dollar amount you choose, and add the change to your Savings Shed. Think of it like a virtual piggy bank that fills up with each transaction! 🐷

Why rounding works:

Automatic savings 👛

Rounding makes saving a seamless part of your daily routine, eliminating the need for manual transfers or complicated calculations.

Small changes, big impact 📈

A few cents here and a couple of dollars there might not seem like much, but they add up quickly over time. Imagine saving hundreds or even thousands of dollars per year, just by rounding up your purchases!

Motivation boost 🎯

Seeing your savings grow effortlessly can motivate you to save even more and reach your financial goals faster.

Transparency 👓

Rounding provides clear visibility into how much you're saving with each transaction, giving you a sense of control and confidence.

Activate rounding in Debut

Create a Savings Shed and set a goal. To turn on rounding, choose a contribution you feel comfortable with. You can round expenses to the nearest $1, $5 or even $10.

Rounding works in the background, so you can focus on enjoying your life, not stressing about your savings.
