I want to share something about zeroFX.
It's not about saving just the 3% which bunq says can be saved.
You can save a lot more ;)
How I save more money (than you think) with ZeroFx 🌈
If you are like me, you pay a lot of stuff online. Which works really great with the bunq Online Cards. 💳
And what if I told you, that you can save a lot of money just with paying in another currency.
A lot of online shops show you the prices in your local currency.
So lets say you are somewhere in Europe. The Price in the onlineshop will mostly be displayed in EURO (€).
For an example lets say something costs 100€.
But what if you are in the USA.
They will show it as 100$ or sometimes even less.
So, 100$ and 100€ are not the same. If you pay it in $ you will save yourself around 15€ (because 100$ are about 85€). Which is more than 3% :D
And I did that in a lot of online shops. Often you cold just change the language on their site. Sometimes I needed to use a VPN Service, but most of the time it worked perfectly fine :D
What did I save in 1 Year 📆
Last year I was still in school and had a very low budget for living. So I didn't buy that much stuff...
That year I saved around 200€ through this way. (Checked with bunq sdk and a neat python script)
Negativ stuff 🙁
You won't get as much trees as it would be possible... 🌳 but you could spend a little bit of the saved amount and donate it to some tree planting project 🌳
