Power-up your personal finances with easy to understand
insights that are auto-generated for you.
Credit cards provide the ability to build a credit record and receive a credit score. If you have a high credit utilization on your cards, however, you might find yourself with lower credit scores, a more difficult time making larger monthly payments, and a higher interest rate on your cards if you make any payments late.
An overdraft occurs when there isn't enough money in an account to cover a transaction or withdrawal, but the bank allows the transaction anyway. Know when you’ve hit an overdraft and what fees your are paying.
A personal cash flow is important because it allows you to identify where your income is coming from and how it is being spent. The more positive money flow you have, the more money you will make. The more money you make, the faster you can build up your finances.
Compound interest is what happens when you reinvest your earnings, which then earn interest as well. Compound interest essentially means "interest on the interest" and is the reason many investors are so successful. Determine how much your money can grow using the power of compound interest.
You can choose between monthly or yearly payment.
Cashews is built by people who want to help you better understand personal financing, not judge you.

We’re launching in the US first. It’s where we are and where we have the most experience with the financial institutions. Banking systems and regulations are different in every country. We want to make sure we do this correctly, which means expanding slowly and only after we’ve created a great experience for customers.
Because we’re launching in the US first, we’re starting with US dollars. We hope to add CAD, Euro, GBP, Bitcoin, and Ethereum shortly.
To start, we only ask for and store the absolute bare minimum amount of information required to provide you with a stellar experience. We don’t and won’t ever sell this information or use it for advertising. The data that we do gather is all encrypted with finance industry standard AES-256 encryption.
Cashews is unique because it uses predictive cash flow analysis to give you a clear, real-time snapshot of your financial standing relative to your big-picture goals. But we also think that Cashews stands out because it avoids some shortcomings, frustrations, and risks that we’ve experienced when using personal finance apps.
For instance, some apps are great at collecting data from all our accounts in one place. But they have no predictive capability — they don’t even keep track of recurring monthly expenses.
Other apps are too rigid. They’re focused on strict budget categories, so they chastise us for stocking up on paper towels at the grocery store or putting an emergency medical procedure on a credit card. Or they’re built on a calendar month time period and can never understand that we get paid on the 5th and 20th. And other apps work okay, but they’re owned by banks, software companies, or worse, marketing companies. So their objective is either to sell you other financial products or to get your data to sell to advertisers.
All we want to sell you is Cashews. We designed it because it was something we needed — and we think you’ll find it helpful, too.
If emailing useful stuff about personal finances is called spam, then yes, we will spam from time to time.
