How does BoostUp work?
BoostUp is a savings app that helps you save towards life's biggest purchases. Users create a BoostUp account by connecting their bank account and creating a savings plan. Brand partners such as Quicken Loans and Hyundai offer users dollar-for-dollar matching incentives, which reward users for their savings and helps them buy their next car of home. BoostUp is 100% free to use.

What does "Days Active" mean?
No, we aren't tracking your fitness. "Days Active" is how many days your BoostUp account has been open. This date doesn't start when you put money in your account, just the day you created your BoostUp account.
Wait, does my account actually have to be open for 30 days?
In order to get any matching funds from our partners, such as Hyundai, your account must be open for 30 days. The day you signed up for BoostUp, the clock started running. You can find how long your account has been open on the menu labeled "Days Active".
How do I get funds back to my bank account?
Look for either the +/- button on the Dashboard, or the Transfer back to Bank link on the menu. From there, you can transfer as little or as much as you'd like back to your bank account.
Why is my deposit still pending?
When you make a deposit into your BoostUp account, it takes 5 full business days to travel from your bank to your BoostUp balance.
Can I use a credit card or debit card to make a deposit?
No, but you can directly connect your bank account to your BoostUp account. This is a secure, tokenized connection that allows us to pull a deposit for you and also send any deposits right back to you.
Where is my total account history?
On the Dashboard, you can find a scrolling collection of every Auto Deposit, RoundUp, Deposit Now, and every time you've transferred back to your bank. In addition, any time you've Spent It with our partners, and when you created your account.
Can I pause my Auto Deposits or RoundUps?
At any time, you can pause and unpause your Auto-Deposits.
What is Deposit Now?
Got an extra $20.00 laying around? Or just have a thing for even numbers? At any time you can deposit extra funds into your BoostUp account that are outside of your Auto-Deposit plan or RoundUps. These funds go into your Purchasing Power. You do not need to have an Auto-Deposit or RoundUps set up on order to Deposit Now.
