Trying out Simple

Finally got my new Simple card in the mail today.

It seems like the company has gone through waves of hype and disappointment - from first promising to reinvent banking as we knew it, to later underwhelming early users with their actual product offering.

I don’t have any especially high hopes for the service- I just want a hassle-free banking tool that lets me easily keep track of my purchases and day-to-day spending. I don’t already use Mint for that, so I’m planning to give Simple a shot for a few weeks and see how the new card and mobile app work for me. Stay tuned.
