Sleigh your Christmas shopping budgets with in-app tags


Christmas is coming and that means the season of gift shopping is fast approaching. But whether you’re planning to hit the Black Friday sales or priming up for your online shop, it’s all too easy to lose track of what you’ve spent and where. If you’re hoping to stay on top of your spending this Christmas and beyond, now’s the perfect time to take full advantage of one of our favourite Yolt features: in-app tags.

Here are three reasons why:

1. Use tags to track your total gift budget

With tags, it’s easy to organise, search, and track your spending across any category of your choice, like #ChristmasGifts! Just tap any transaction and add your chosen tag. Then you can go back any time and search all transactions under that theme. Staying on top of all that Christmas shopping has never been easier! If you’d rather stay on track of your total Christmas budget, you can do that, too! Tags are all about getting as personal with your money tracking as you like.

2. Know exactly what you’ve spent on each friend or family member

Whether they’ve been naughty or nice this year, keep tabs on what you’ve spent on different friends and family with your own in-app list of festive transactions. If you’re buying gifts for lots of different people, from siblings to colleagues, tags are a great way to keep track of what you’ve spent on each person. For example, try using #GiftsForMum and #GiftsForDad to stay on track.

3. Get festive with emojis

If you’re a visual person (and who isn’t at Christmas?), you might be excited to learn you can even use emojis as tags! Use your favourite one to track everything from #Gifts🎁 to #Decorations🎄 to your #FestiveFeast🍗!
