What is a Spending Account? Why do you need it? 

Would you eat soup with a fork? Or try to skate in running shoes? Or play cricket with a badminton racket?

No, because it would be absurd.

Then why do you “spend” from a “savings” account?

When you use a product that is not fit for purpose, you don’t get the desired results. Now you might ask, is there something like a “spending” account?

What is a spending account?

A spending account is an account designed for your lifestyle spending. It helps you get the maximum value from the money you have earmarked for spending on daily expenses, regular shopping, or once-in-a-while luxury buys. A spending account has specially designed features that enhance your spending experience and provide the best growth to your spending money.

Why do you need a spending account?

When you spend on your lifestyle, you typically make multiple transactions with multiple brands and merchants. Because of the unique way in which spending money is used, it has certain unique challenges. 

  • Your spending money lies idle in the savings account and earns very little or next to nothing because of low-interest rates, high inflation rates, and taxation.
  • Earnings are credited quarterly or annually by the banks, which means you end up losing earnings due to multiple transactions taking place simultaneously
  • It is difficult to track spending across categories when investments, utility bill payments, shopping, etc. - all payments are debited from the same account.
  • You end up exposing your bank details to multiple brands and merchants as you spend across categories.

Hubble Spending Account Vs Savings Account Vs FD

Let’s look at an example to understand the comparison. Suppose you deposit Rs 20,000 today in each avenue - Savings account, FD, & Hubble. Here’s how your money will grow in the next 100 days. 

Moreover, you can watch your money grow every day on Hubble, unlike savings accounts & FDs. Banks saving accounts and FDs have time period restrictions along with minimum interest amount requirements, making them less attractive options than Hubble when it comes to growing our liquid cash meant for spending purposes comparatively within the same duration i.e. 100 days!
