How does Rocket Money work?
Rocket Money is an automated financial assistant that allows for all of your financial information to be easily accessible in one place. You can safely connect all of your accounts, track all of your spending, manage your subscriptions, lower your bills, and keep you on top of your financial life.
Linking your Accounts to Rocket Money
To use Rocket Money, you want to first connect your bank accounts and credit cards via our secure linking provider Plaid so that our software can analyze your transactions.
Tracking your Spending
Get a breakdown of your finances and see where your money is going and how to improve in the Spending tab. You can see monthly reports of your money, where it’s going and how your spending changes over time. You can also view a full list of your transactions and even search through your transactions across all your accounts directly from here. Customize your notifications to alert you of important events that need your attention so you’re never caught off guard.
Managing Subscriptions & Bills
Rocket Money is able to find subscriptions automatically for anything you pay with a Rocket Money connected bank account or credit card. Once your accounts are successfully linked, you will be able to find all of your subscriptions within the Recurring tab of the app. From there, you can click on any recurring subscription to see more information about it and cancel any unneeded ones. You can cancel yourself, or Premium members can request our concierges do it for you!
