Having a fourth grader, a ninth grader, and a college sophomore in the house is not easy! This is especially true when it comes to keeping track of what to pay who, and when.

My college student has fees that arise for entrance exams and academic societies. My high-schooler’s ‘class of 2020′ club is already starting to save for senior graduation and prom. My youngest child field trips and scout dues.

Remembering all the payments can be overwhelming! Fortunately, I found a way to manage payments quickly, easily, and best of all – for free.

I now use Square Cash. Square Cash is the easiest way to pay people, be it friends, family, or school organizations.

Using Square Cash has many great benefits:


Protected by 128-bit encryption and fingerprint scanning (or a passcode)


Optionally cash out to your bank in seconds for a 1% fee


Just link your Visa, MasterCard, or Discover debit card to transfer money

With Square Cash, I can send money to all the people I need with my debit card at no cost. Now instead of having the stress of remembering to write a check or make a trip to the ATM, I simply make the payments using the Square Cash app on my phone anytime, day or night.

That’s not all that I use Square Cash for. From my kids’ sports uniform purchases to contributing to appreciation gifts for my kids’ teachers, I transfer money to parent group and organization leaders needed with the click of a button

What I love most about Square Cash is that I can also receive money as easily as I send it! My brothers and I are planning a trip with our entire families this summer. Since I’m the one organizing the trip, we are using Square Cash to manage everyone’s monetary contributions.

The best part is I can use Square Cash with anyone, even if they don’t have an account. I simply share a link to my free profile to get paid by a friend or family member in a snap!

Plus, I can cash out to my bank instantly with no waiting times. I can even spend directly from the app with a built-in Visa virtual card number, and use it at businesses that accept Apple Pay. The payments come directly from the money I keep in the app.

I’ve found the #CashApp to be perfect for so many occasions! Whether I’m splitting a dinner bill with my friends, sending payments to cover my kids’ school needs, or collecting money from my family to cover the summer trip we are planning. Just like real cash, but better!

Download Square Cash from the Apple App Store or Google Play Market
