Square Cash App Review: According to the Everyday Mom
Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links.
I am a mom who is always on the go. Because of this, sometimes I need things to help me simplify my life. This includes apps. I always have my phone, and I am big on apps that help me throughout my busy days.
Today I will be highlighting some great points about the app Square Cash.
The app is very similar to PayPal in the sense that you can transfer money to anyone who uses the app. If you sign up using my referral link, you get $10 when you send $50. This app is great when you need to send or receive money from someone who doesn’t use the same financial institution as you which comes in handy when you are in a pinch and need quick money. My mother and I transfer money to each other all the time. You can either transfer your money into your bank account or you can use a cool new feature that lets you use a virtual card that the app provides in the event you need to use the money immediately and don’t have time to wait for it to be transferred into your bank account.
My mother and I were talking about how a lot of retailers have been getting hacked which causes your information including your debit card info to become vulnerable. We entertained the idea of just using prepaid debit cards so our bank accounts don’t get compromised.
In this instance, you would be able to use the app just for the things you need to use it for and you only spend what is there. You don’t have to worry about additional funds being removed from any secondary bank source that you have like a checking account or another debit card. You can use the virtual card just like you would a physical debit/credit card to pay for merchandise in stores or online. In my experience, not all major retailers acknowledge the virtual card or have the ability to use the card. I have been able to use the virtual card for places where they can manually enter in a debit card number. I was unsuccessful at places like CVS or the Dollar Tree as they did not have the ability to manually enter in debit card numbers. I have found that a workaround comes into play when purchasing things online. I have been able to use the card to pay for items I purchased at Target online and either pick them up from the store or have them shipped to me.
Whether you are a mom on the go, a student, or an avid shopper, this app is simple to set up and simple to use. The app us trusted, verified and encrypted to keep you bank account information safe as it is affiliated with Square, and to set it up, all you need is to enter your debit card or bank account info in order to receive your funds into your account.
For anyone who has used the app, I would love to get your feedback on what you think and how you use the app.
