How To Use Fetch

Budget Better with this Hidden Fetch Feature

If you love Fetch, you love using points to save on all your favorite brands.

But what if I told you there was another way to save with Fetch and that it didn’t even require earning points. 

How is that possible? Well, Fetch has a budgeting feature you might not have even known was at your fingertips.

Accessing this feature couldn’t be easier. Just open the Fetch app and tap your points total in the top right corner of your screen. 

What can these insights tell you to help you save money? A few things …

How many points you’re earning

The first thing you’ll see when you click on your points total (other than a display of all your points) is a graph that indicates how many points you’re earning over time. 

You can view this graph over the week, month or year, helping you see when you earned the majority of your points. It also shows you how many receipts you’ve snapped in the current week, month or year.

This nifty feature is great for keeping track of how much you earn, but the real money-saving tool is what you’ll see when you swipe to the left.

Your total spend in dollars

In the next tab, you’ll see your total spend in dollars. Here, Fetch displays all the money you’ve spent across all your snapped receipts.

This is incredibly useful because it allows you to track all of your purchase spending (assuming you snap every receipt). 

If you’re taking control of your budget, knowing how much you’ve spent in a given month is an invaluable insight. 

But there’s one more feature that’s even more valuable, and you’ll see it when you swipe left again.  

Your total spend by retailer

To help you see where your money’s going, Fetch creates a dashboard of your total spend by retailer.

This way, you can see how much of your budget goes towards a given store.

If you notice you’re spending way more than you realized at a certain retailer, you can adjust your spending to protect your budget. 

Thanks to these helpful dashboards, Fetch doesn’t just help you earn. It helps you save!
