In 2015 I read an inspiring article in NRC Handelsblad about bunq being the ‘WhatsApp for banks’ and it made me curious enough to download the app immediately. At that time I had just transferred from Rabobank to Triodos, mainly because of the bad investments of Rabobank. And than all of a sudden there was bunq, all digital and innovative without the bad stuff.
After spending a few years with the app – and much appreciating the growing number of features and the transformation into a grown-up user interface – it was the introduction of Apple Pay that finally made me switch from Triodos to bunq. And I’m glad I did it. Triodos may be the best of all the old dutch banks, but still did investments that weren’t my cup of tea. Also they sended an unnecessary printed and plasticized magazine periodically. And they have an app from the stone-age…
In the four months that I’ve used bunq as my only bank it striked me that I have gotten a much better insight in my spendings through the notifications, the use of piggy banks and because I spend way more time in bunq's money app than I did with the others.
And it’s no secret that I really love the request functionality :)
