Why am I seeing duplicate Round-Ups?

Some financial institutions may change the transaction name for some of your purchases after the transaction has settled. For example, you make a purchase and you have a "Pending Debit" transaction that results in a $0.50 Round-Up. We will capture that transaction and use it for your Round-Up Investments.

 

Once the "Pending" debit transaction settles (oftentimes a day or two later), your financial institution may change the title name for the purchase to "Debit Transaction," ultimately creating another Round-Up on your account. This is solely dependent upon how a financial institution relays data, so we do not have control over this.

 

If you prefer avoiding instances of duplicate Round-Ups, you can unlink your card for Round-Ups or turn off tracking for that card account. Alternatively, you can set a Recurring Investment that would mirror your spending on that card week-over-week or month-over-month, whatever is most suitable for you.
