Charlotteans still fondly call it “The Bank,” but Bank of America isn’t just our bank anymore; it’s a world-renowned, digitally-powered institution.

BofA offers all of the benefits of a traditional brick-and-mortar institution in addition to advanced digital capabilities.

The strategy: Bank of America’s mobile app offers convenient features to help you live your best life in Charlotte by managing your finances on the go. Here’s how:


Automatically track your spending

So you can stay within your monthly brunch budget.

Here’s how: When you pay bills online, or make purchases using your BofA debit or credit cards, the app will automatically track your spending and break it down by category. When you get paid, the app will factor that into your budget.

    Send money using Zelle®

    So you can quickly pay back friends after a night out in South End.

    Here’s how: Zelle® is a fast, safe and easy way to send and receive money with friends within the BofA app (even if your friends use a different bank).

    • Funds sent with Zelle® are typically available within minutes.

    Create a Life Plan

    So you can stay on track to get the keys to that bungalow or save up for that fall trip to Asheville.

    Here’s how: With Life Plan, you can track your short- and long-term goals, get one-on-one advice and adapt when life changes.

    • BofA’s Life Plan dashboard offers personalized advice and even detects bumps in the road so you can prepare for them.

    Redeem rewards with Erica®

    So you can treat your crew to the next round of local brews.
