Giveaway!

Hello, YNABers! We're hoping to get more folks to join the forum, so we're doing a little giveaway! We'll be sending a t-shirt and the YNAB book to five winners. We'd like to include new folks as well as current forum users, so even if you're not new, please participate! 

So here's how it will work:

  • Leave a comment below with one thing you love about YNAB.
  • On Wednesday, 4/25 I will choose five people at random. 
  • That day, I'll contact the winners privately to get some information so we can send a prize!

A few notes for new folks:

If you haven't created an account with the forum yet, you'll just need to do so before you can comment. Click 'Login' at the top of the screen.

If not, sign in with the same email and password you use to log in to the YNAB app.  If you haven't used YNAB before, you'll need to create an account first.

  • I love that I have money left after payday and I always know how much is in my account.  My old excel sheet failed to help me with either.

  • For the first time in my life I am conscious of my spending, actively saving for goals and in control of my finances. The peace of mind is awesome and amazing!

  • I love YNAB for a million reasons, but mainly because I finally don't live in constant panic about over-drafting or being buried in debt. I was able to start my family and buy a house thanks the help of YNAB!

  • I love how I "found money" that I didn't realize we already had saved up because we hadn't accounted for every dollar already in our checking account. Our next goal was to save $1000 and after budgeting the dollars in our account, we realized we already had it! We also consolidated our four checking accounts into one! Huge win!!

  • I love tracking my student loans. When I pay over the minimum and can see the overall loan amount go down, it encourages me to keep attacking that debt!

  • I love YNAB because it feels like a service run by knowledgeable and kind people helping me with my finances and there happens to be a very nice-to-use app as part of the service.

    YNAB helped me become debt-free as of a couple months ago (and you already sent me a shirt!). I also already bought the book, so you I don't need either. ;)

    Thanks for everything. I joined the forum primarily to say that.

  • Envelope budgeting in the age of smart phones!  I can give every dollar a job and not have to do any mental math to make sure I'm not planning to use the same dollars for two different jobs.   Just pull out my phone and see the balance.

  • LOVE the goal-setting function. It has really encouraged me to continue slamming out my consumer debt. Each month I’m determibed to allocate the $700 to my Credit Card Debt category. So far, so good!

  • I like how YNAB makes me think consciously about my spending on the little day-to-day stuff and what I want to prioritize.

  • I really love to set up goals for a specific date - this way I know each month how much should I budget for them. We had a trouble free Christmas and summer vacation two times in a row.

  • Since joining YNAB, my family has been set free from the stress of finances. By following the 4 rules, we’ve broken the paycheck to paycheck cycle, paid off many depts, and are saving for a comfortable future. Thank you for all the helpful videos and amazing updates to the software through the years. YNAB clearly listens to their users and strives to be the best. Thank you for freedom and thank you for YNAB!

  • I love how YNAB is setup to make its users proactive rather than reactive - to give each dollar a job and to set goals for future expenses. Thanks for keeping me honest and on top of things, YNAB!

  • Only one thing? I love it all but especially getting away from checking my bank account balance and just using YNAB! 

    Like
  • I love how YNAB handles all the tedious mechanics of budgeting (i.e. importing transactions, adding and subtracting, tracking percentages), allowing me to focus on what's important: making my money work for my priorities.
