New Mobile Spending and Budgeting Tools From Bank of America Help Consumers Stay on Track

Financial Wellness Tool and ‘My Balance’ Functionality Provide
Consumers More Convenience and Control

CHARLOTTE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bank of America today unveiled a series of updates to its award-winning
mobile platform, including a financial wellness tool, to further
personalize the customer experience.

“These newest offerings are all about connecting to the unique needs and
personal goals of the more than 21 million mobile users we serve,” said
Michelle Moore, head of Digital Banking at Bank of America. “We
recognize that for each individual, gaining control over their financial
lives and making finances simpler and easier to manage means something
different, and we are committed to providing customers the tailored
solutions they want to make their financial lives better.”

The latest mobile enhancements include:

  • Spending and budgeting tool
    A new, seamless money
    management and financial education tool provides Bank of America
    customers a streamlined resource to quickly track where they are
    spending their money, while encouraging them to take control of their
    finances through the integration with Better
    Money Habits®
    . Available for online and mobile banking, the
    feature provides a dynamic income and spending comparison, outlines
    spending trends up to the past 13 months, and allows users to easily
    set budgets by offering the option for one to be automatically created
    based on past behavior or allowing the user to build it themselves.
    The spending and budgeting tool will be rolled out to online and
    mobile banking customers through January 2017.
  • My Balance
    Customers can now opt in to check balances
    without signing in using the new My Balance™ feature. Once enrolled in
    this feature, offered on both Android™ and iPhone® devices, customers
    can personalize which accounts to show balances for on their mobile
    banking home page and can easily change their selections or turn it on
    and off.
  • BankAmeriDeals® enhancements
    Bank of America
    customers will now be able to use the new Deals Near Me feature to
    easily find nearby BankAmeriDeals, which provide up to 15 percent cash
    back when customers make purchases at selected retailers with their
    Bank of America debit and credit cards. A redesigned “All Deals” page
    shows customers all of their available deals.

Additional mobile enhancements provide customers the ability to view and
download eStatements, manage paperless settings and immediately access
check images after making mobile check deposits. The upgraded features
allow users to save, print or email eStatements and check images for
their records.
