Understanding Yolt Goals

Setting a Yolt Goal

What are Yolt Goals?

To put it simply, Yolt Goals help you stay motivated while you grow your savings. Set up to two Goals at a time, then split your savings however you choose, making it easy to shoot for multiple targets at the same time.

Use the progress bar to help you see how close you are to smashing your target. You’ll even have the option to supercharge your savings by topping up with cash from your Yolt Money Jar.

Bit by bit, you’ll see yourself making progress – and feel the immense satisfaction of smashing Goal, after Goal.

How do I set a Yolt Goal?

Setting a Goal is as easy as one, two, three:
1. Head to the Wallet tab
2. Tap Add or customise accounts
3. Hit + Set a goal

You can set yourself a customised Goal or pick one of the pre-loaded options we’ve built for you.

What kind of things can I use Yolt Goals to save for?

Pretty much anything your heart desires. Think about what you want the most and how much it will cost, then name your Goal and set a date to reach your target.

How about a few ideas to get you started?
• New trainers, £70
• Swanky sunglasses, £100
• Fancy dinner date for two, £150
• Festival tickets, £200
• Weekend break, £500
• Fancy watch, £1,000
• Family holiday, £2,500
• Second-hand car, £5,000
• Mortgage deposit, £25,000

What happens next?

Once you’ve added a Goal, you can see it anytime by going to the Goals tile in your Yolt Wallet. Add as much or a little as you like to your Goal each month, or top it up with pennies from your Money Jar and watch that progress bar creep toward the finish line.

How can Yolt help me to smash my Goals?

Once you’ve set your Goals, you can take advantage of several awesome Yolt features such as:
