Does Your Budget Need New Year's Diet?
Many people’s New Year’s resolutions involve getting in shape, slimming down and getting healthy. But what if it’s your budget that needs to go on a diet? If you have been financially overindulging and your budget needs a New Year’s slim down, visit a free U.S. Cellular Device Workshop to learn how to use your smartphone to help.
According to a recent U.S. Cellular survey, 30 percent of people use finance tracking apps, such as Mint, to manage their money, while 64 percent use their phones to track account transactions, pay bills or deposit checks. If you are in need of a financial “boot camp,” devices – such as the iPhone 6s and Samsung Galaxy S6 – can make it easy to track your budget, manage your bank account, pay bills online and search for sales and incentives.
“After the holidays, some of us may need to get our finances back to a healthier state after months of excess spending, and our mobile devices are a great tool for setting and tracking budgets, accessing coupons and finding innovative ways to cut costs,” said Erryn Andersen, U.S. Cellular’s director of sales in Iowa and Nebraska. “Using these devices on our high-quality network, you’ll be able to trim your spending and feel more financially fit.”
Please call 515-961-7972 for more information on this and upcoming Device Workshops.
