Just set mine up to add some money to my Florida 2019 pot every time I say ‘Hey Google, it’s Florida time!’
Florida time! I love it.
I need a new Pot to save up for my next trip to Paisley Park… Maybe I’ll call it “Minneapolis Time” ️
I have a flic button, tempted to setup an IFTTT so that each time I get distracted from revision I click the button and it moves £2 to a pot. I think my account would be drained fast though if today is anything to go by.
To pay a holiday bill ️
To put money aside for emergencies or things I want. (It used to be fuel money but WFH is ace)
Money for my yearly car service & MOT
Currently having a bit of fun to see what quirky IFTTTs can create the I “never thought I could use my bank to” style ones !
If I spend at Nando’s, email my wife and tell her I’ve been bad and don’t deserve dinner.
Make sure y’all link to the applets you’re making so that others can enable them too!
I send an email to IFTTT tagged “#showmethemoney” after being paid and all my pots for savings/car/holiday etc are moved automatically. This will honestly save me like half an hour. So good. If I could automate it to trigger after being paid, even better, but this works for now!
Well that was easy
When I book my tickets at the local cinema it moves my money out of my cinema pot
How do you do this for each pot at once? Can you share your Applet?
Different applet for each, all triggered by the same email
How do I do this? I can’t find the option the share
Using a combination of IFTTT, Workflow and the limited Siri Shortcuts functionality currently present in the iOS 12 beta, I’ve set up shortcuts where I can say “Give me £X” and I’ll have money moved out of the Pot where I keep the bulk of my money.
It saves me from going into the Monzo app and doing it manually
Another IFTTT applet idea:
Add transactions to my Google calendar
Add all receipts / photos to a folder in my Google drive
Another health related incentivising applet. Log a ride on Strava (with photographic proof!) - and whoosh £5 is magically moved to my new (currently empty) Treat Jar!
I have then set up a button widget that will withdraw said £5 at a push.
Monzo + IFTTT has brought things to a whole new level of FinTech Fun!
Anybody got an idiots guide to making these things?
I want to create one that does:
transfer £5 into moneybox pot every Monday
Pots, Rules, Direct Debits priority
Tap If, choose the Date & Time trigger, then Every day of the week at; pick a time and day and tap Create Trigger. Then, tap on That > Monzo > Move money into a pot > Select your Moneybox pot
