If you’re that friend that’s always spotting everyone else in the squad $$$-wise, I feel you. Sometimes it’s just faster to put everyone’s bar tab on one card and figure out the details later—but why isn’t getting paid back as fast as making that Grubhub order? ICYMI, it is. In March, Her Campus x Apple Pay hosted the ultimate study break for college women where we indulged in massages, ate takeout with our girl gang, played giant Jenga and learned all about how Apple Pay Cash is changing the way we go out with friends. Ahead, our team’s favorite points about the latest from Apple Pay.
- Paying is as fast as sending a text when you use Apple Pay.
Instead of sending those awkward rent reminders to your roommate through an app, Apple Pay lets you request (and send) money while you’re already texting (you don’t even have to leave iMessage).
- You can use your Apple Pay Cash as a hack for saving money.
When you receive money from friends you can let your Apple Pay Cash balance rack up without transferring all that $$$ directly to your debit card. Ta-dah! It’s a DIY savings account. The beauty is that when you do want that dough for textbooks, dorm décor, or a spring break trip, you can also pay with your Apple Pay Cash balance .
- You can reduce screen time by having Siri do the work for you.
Just like Siri can send texts and voice messages to your girl gang, she can send and request money for you too. Just say “Hey, Siri, send Rachel $50.”
- You can sync multiple cards to Apple Pay (hi, Mom).
If you use one debit card for rent and another for food and fun, Apple Pay isn’t getting in the way of that. Keep your money organized your way and sync multiple cards to Apple Pay.
To learn more about how Apple Pay can change the way you go out, pay rent or plan squad trips (or to get started RTFN—it’s fo’ free), head over to Apple.
