How About Smarty Pig offering a weekly funding option too so you could have smaller ammounts withdrawn weekly so it would seem less noticeble or painful ( kind of a Jedi mind trick on yourself!)

I don"t make a lot yet and even 57.00 every 2 weeks seems like a lot to have withdrawn for me to reach my goalbut if i could split that into 24 bucks a week it might not seems so bad!

  • @kiki,

    Thanks for the suggestion. We will pass this onto our development team for future consideration. Thanks, John

  • I’m suprised Smarty pig has such stinky IT and requirements to a simple thing
    Well I am quite suprised that smarty pig or the IT department would have overlooked such a clearly necessary requirement. And its such an easy fix. I'll expect it to be implemented soon or I'll just go ahead and do business with banks that go to the needs of their customer base rather than the banks convenience. Looking forward to this being resolved. Thanks

    But where does it stop? I mean why not go so far as to allow for DAILY contributions?

    Whoever's footing the bill for each ACH transaction might want to have a say.

    Well maybe they should take it that far! It would be unique and I think alot of people would use actually use that as well especially if they are doing the " latte factor" thingy mentioned in Dave what's his name's( bach i think ) books. Maybe they want to funnel the 5 dollars they would spend on a latte or cigarettes daily in a savings account daily to really help them see how much they were truly spending and now saving on such things... Okay that may be extreme to some but weekly transfers is not too much to ask. I can do that with my Chase bank savings account and was but i was having a probblem because the funds were too accessible to take out! but maybe I could go back to that and then have the money swept into Smart pig twice a month from that if they don't add weekly withdrawals...

  • OK - all good points, kiki.

    But there's a work-around. For weekly contributions, set up 2 goals with bi-weekly contributions which take place one week from each other - interleaving the contributions, as it were This would also allow you to redeem just half (one of the two goals) of what you saved, if you want, vs having to redeem all of the funds if it was all in one goal.

    For daily contributions, you'd basically do the same, except that you'd be setting up a lot more goals so that every day, one of them triggers a contribution. (I think that comes to 10 goals with bi-weekly contributions.)

    True, the SP website could probably be made to better facilitate weekly and daily contributions. Indeed, there's probably ALWAYS going to be room for improvement there. But this work-around won't kill ya. :-)
