Keep Austin Weird…. And Financially Tech Savvy!

Austin’s such a great place to explore the latest trends and innovations – and that was definitely true at the Capital One House @ Antone’s in the heart of SXSW where I spent a day immersed in learning about some of the latest digital, tech and design innovations in banking. I left the House to get some additional equipment twice and had a hard time getting back in – the true sign of a successful event! If you weren’t able to make it to Austin, I’ve put together a roundup of some of the best financial innovation highlights that were announced on location as another year of SXSW wraps up!

How to save in-store with your smartphone

I’m not ashamed to admit that I take my loyalty programs very seriously. From Starbucks® to CVS®, I love finding digital tools to help me save money. Being conscious about money is smart and the way that I was raised. I remember sitting with my mom on Sunday mornings where we combed through the newspaper, cut out coupons and then arranged them in an accordion folder. Somehow my mom would manage to take me and my three older sisters to the grocery store and save us money at the same time!

Meet Eno: The Bot that Lets You Text with Your Bank

I remember when I was little and my mom needed to deposit a check at the bank. My three sisters and I piled into the car and drove to the center of town. Once we got into the bank we all stood around the counter as my mom filled out the deposit slip. Then we lingered in the long line that wound around the lobby to wait for our turn at the window. If we were lucky we got a free sucker from the lady at the counter. It is amazing to think, in a different era how much time and effort it took my mom to complete just one banking transaction!

Upgrade your lifestyle with these New Year's Resolutions

If it wasn’t for tech, my New Year’s resolutions may already be toast. According to U.S. News & World Report, nearly 80 percent of resolutions are usually broken by mid-February. But as my Google calendar turns in that direction, I’m still going strong, and I credit apps and gadgets for making the whole “new year new you” thing easier than ever.
