"I love that it's catered to students and allows me to compare my spending habits with my peers automatically.. and the challenges make it fun!" - Allison B.

Screw tedious budgets, ugly graphs and stressful numbers. Pluto guides you to spend smarter & save up in a simple, automatic and fun way that fits your lifestyle as a student.

Get started by securely linking your accounts (debit, credit cards, PayPal, etc.). We support 10k+ U.S. financial institutions. We do NOT support non-U.S. institutions at this time.


Save for Goals, by doing Simple Challenges

• Do fun spending challenges smartly tailored to your finances & save! EX: Take on "Spend Less" challenges for any category, merchant or even on your overall spending.
• We suggest benchmarks for you, and if you spend under that amount, save the difference towards goals like Coachella!

Set Funds Aside for Goals in your Pluto Safe:

• Easily set aside savings into your Pluto wallet when you complete challenges, automatically or via prompts—or whenever! Like Venmo for your goals.
• Get 1.5% annual savings bonus on your Pluto Safe - paid out quarterly!
• No minimum balance, no minimum deposit, absolutely zero fees
• Unlimited deposits and withdrawals
• FDIC-insured up to $250,000 - held at our partner bank

Compare Finances to Similar Peers, Anonymously:

• Compare spending to similar peers, grouped by criteria like your age, income, relationship status and college campus.
• The more peers on Pluto, the more accurate it gets - so invite your friends to Pluto!

Understand Your Money with Simple Insights:

• Finally, insights that don't overwhelm you.
• See snapshot summaries, then dive into details only if you want!
• Take on challenges directly from your insights!

Automatic Tracking & Categorization:

• Auto-tracks your financial accounts and activities in one place.
• Auto-categorizes all your transactions!
• Keeps you on track with our challenge "Spendometers".
• Bank-level security (learn more below).

Search Transactions, Easily:
• Type to search by bank accounts, merchant name and category!

Get Powerful Alerts:
• Get notified abut new transactions, such as when you get paid and pay off your credit card bills.
• Know your challenge + goal progress and get encouragement.
• Know how many more times you can spend to stay green!

And best of all, Pluto is absolutely 100% free!
