5 Ways to Simplify Holiday Spending

Last week we were in New York City and stopped in a shop at Bryant Park where CITI Bank had a display. They had an interesting flyer about how to simplify holiday spending so I thought I would share these 5 simple ways that might help you.

Use Financial Apps

Manage your holiday expenses with free online personal finance tools like the Citibank for iPad app and manilla.com that help you set and track a budget for everything from eggnog to secret Santa gifts.

Pay Bills Online

Plan ahead for the holiday hustle and bustle. Set up online bill payments or choose a credit card like Citi Simplicity, which understands that life happens.

Use a Credit Card with Bonuses

Celebrate the holidays with less financial stress. Check into whether your credit card offers special discounts on purchases, cash back, or opportunities to earn rewards.

Pay Bills On Time

‘Tis the season to stay on budget and on time with your bills. Whether you are at home or bound for the North Pole, you can receive account alerts and payment reminders via text message or e-mail.

Shop Online

Avoid long lines and save time with online shopping and tools right on your mobile phone. With the Citi ThankYou Rewards app (it’s free), you can browse and redeem points for merchandie at Best Buy and then pick it up at your local Best Buy store.
