Most Asked Questions
How does Spared work?
Spared is a mobile app that helps you pay off your student loans faster by giving you that extra little boost to pay more than the minimum. It’s super simple! With your permission, we sync your bank account and the cards you use for everyday spending with your student loan account. When you buy something, let’s say a large cold brew for $3.70, Spared rounds that transaction up to $4.00. That extra $0.30 is transferred from your bank account to the Spared app and then paid towards your student loan on your monthly due date. You take care of your existing payments. We take care of the spare change that will go towards quickly reducing your principal. By simply rounding up your everyday charges, you can save thousands in interest payments and get rid of your student debt years faster. So, what are you waiting for?
How can my loved ones help me with my student loan debt?
This is easy! They can pay it off for you. Well, we can dream, can’t we? It’s easy for your family and friends to help lower your debt on birthdays or if they simply choose to do so because you’re amazing.
First, they’ll need to sign up as contributors to your Spared account. To help them verify YOU are really YOU, make sure you have a profile picture associated with your account.
You’ll want to send them a request to contribute. Now, there are heart icons
on various pages throughout the app.
Do you see one? PRESS IT! This will pull up both your phone and Facebook contacts. Just select people from the list who you think would be willing to contribute. Include a personal message, remind them that you’ll be eternally grateful, and hope for the best.
Once they agree and have become a contributor, they will be matching your monthly contribution. Then, you’re all set. You and your contributors will make it hail all over your student loans and basically strap you to a rocket headed for debt-freedom.
