Venmo in College

If I were given a nickel for every time I was in need of cash in hand from my freshman year of college to my junior year, I would be rich!!! I cannot count how many times I needed to pay a friend $10, $15, $20 bucks but I had to use the atm to take cash out. Becuase the atm is not associated with my bank, I was charged a fee from the atm and from my own bank. Sometimes to withdraw just $20, a fee of $2.50 from the atm will be automatically charged and then the bank may take an additional fee off in the later days. In addition to this problem, there have been many times when a couple of buddies owed me money but did not pay me because their excuse was “I have no cahs.”

To avoid similar problems, I recommend downloading Venmo for all four years in college. The app allows people to directly pay anyone you owe money with the preferred visa card. It also allows you to request money from anyone who may owe you money. This app has been a lifesaver to me! Usually, I am the one who buys the pizza when I am in a gathering. At times, It would be difficult to get people to pay me back. The app allows me to request all those who pitched in for the pizza. Glad this app exists!
