Shame on you! Good for you! – using societal pressure to help you save money

December 23, 2008

I was doing some research about high-interest online savings account, following my tiring experience with “the world’s local bank”. I stumble upon this very unique online bank site with the cutest design.

It is called SmartyPig.com, a social networking+savings site. You can set up automatic deposit like with most online bank, except that you network with your friends like on Facebook. It allows all your friends to see your progress, it even twitters all the updates. It is great for those who needs supports, or those who can benefit from nosy friends and family pressures.

To bad that it is only available for United States and Australia right now.
