money, offers free accounts, and the best part is, you never have to leave home. It may sound
too good to be true, but this bank really does exist! Simple is a mobile, FDIC-insured checking
account that offers a Visa debit card, direct deposit, photo check deposits, and external account

doesn’t get any better than Simple!
If you’re worried about having enough money for bills, Simple will do the work for you, so you
never have to worry again. You have the option of turning your recurring bills into Expenses,

don’t have to guess how much money to set aside for bills and how much you’ll have left over
for extras. Simple also helps you stay on track by showing your progress on how much has
been saved for Expenses, and how much you have left to go. And, if you share bills with
