With the holidays comes PTO, travel, and parties … shopping, gift wrapping, and baking. As the days grow colder and shorter, the feeling of “not enough hours in a day” rings truer than ever, and the mindless day-to-day errands seem like the most daunting tasks.

Unison’s eBranch online and mobile banking services give you more time in the day to do what matters most this holiday season. Here are seven ways Unison can help make your holidays easier in the busy season to come.

deposit checks

1. Deposit gifted checks over Christmas.

Get your newly gifted money in your account sooner and save a trip to the bank with remote deposit capture (RDC). Simply take a picture of the check with your phone and the amount is deposited into an account of your choice.

pay the babysitter

2. Pay the babysitter from your phone.

We’ve all been there. You get back from a fun-filled event and realize you forgot to get cash for the babysitter. With Unison’s pay anyone feature, safely send and receive money with anyone, similar to Venmo, without the hassle of paying by cash or check.

mobile banking texts3. Receive text notifications while shopping.

Money can be tight around the holidays with extra spending. To keep from overdrafting, receive notifications by text for low balances, large transactions, and more at the most convenient times. Instead of logging into your mobile app, use Unison’s text banking feature to quickly receive account updates.

4. Pay for the turkey (even without your card).

Keep all your money, literally, in one place with Unison’s virtual wallet feature. Easily add your card information to the digital wallet to securely pay for items by scanning your phone at the checkout. This feature is perfect for times you accidentally forget your wallet while running errands. To pay, scan your phone during checkout at stores like Kwik Trip, Festival Foods, Costco, or Starbucks.

review bank account5. Review your account activity while visiting grandma.

With increased spending around the holidays, it’s especially important to keep an eye on your accounts. Unfortunately, scammers take advantage of increased shopping and distractions and find ways get ahold of your money and personal information. Check your e-statements wherever you are and view your activity via your phone.

6. Sign documents on your winter weekend getaway.

Signing documents can be cumbersome, especially around the holidays when your calendar is jam-packed. Save a trip to the bank with Unison’s E-sign document signing feature. Take the time to review and sign what you need to – when you have the time!

transfer funds

7. Transfer funds on the go.

Move money from your various accounts while out and about, easily. If you receive a text notification that an account is low, simply transfer money from another by logging into your Unison mobile app.
