The coin jar.

How it works

Penny saver keeps track of your Venmo account balance daily. If there are extra pennies in the amount ($4.37), it will deduct the pennies (37 cents) to a Penny Saver account. At the end of the month, you may have $20-30 that you can use for fun or to cover unexpected expenses.

You can contribute more money into your Penny Saver account by paying the pennysaver Venmo account, or ask for some back by charging the pennysaver Venmo account.

Challenges I ran into

I wish the payment comments were accessible to the API, so I could have made it nearly all accessible on Venmo.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Built in Node.js and AngularJS.

What I learned

Micro-payments between accounts is fun!

What's next for Penny Saver

Custom intervals and more control of how much can be saved automatically.
