New Icons for purchases👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Holy cow, BECU, you have ALMOST made my entire year......(almost, only because you don’t offer the WSU Coug banking cards anymore).
Seriously though, linking my credit card to my BECU account from my other bank, and having the store/business logos now on the far left side of each transaction that is recognized is LIFE changing!!!! As a visual (and tactile) learner— THIS IS HUGE!!!!!!!
Honestly I might switch all my banking services to BECU just because this makes me so much less overwhelmed with finances and makes it WAYYYYY easier to search for transactions on ALL cards(even my BofA Alaska airlines card), which helps me to prevent fraudulent charges and see what’s actually happening in real time with the logo!!!! This is so huge for me— I am very grateful for the new updates to the app!!
App needs attention - multiple accounts fail too often
First, BECU has really been a great credit union. This app however, really needs attention. Regardless if you like the colors or the way the graphs show spend, it’s all useless if the account to don’t update, never sync, or return incorrect values. BMW hasn’t updated in over a year so I’ve deleted it. Chase bank won’t update unless I update credentials even though my password hasn’t changed. Morgan Stanley brings back an incorrect value which hasn’t changed in a year. Fidelity updates but brings back incorrect totals from wrong fields. Flag star bank has been failing for a month now. When you do need to update a credential, it’s buggy and fails. So, you have to delete the account. Wait.. then add it again as a new account. In settings, you can access your account directly which is necessary sometime if the account requires validation or to prove your identity. Most of the time I just get an “oops something went wrong”. So, you can’t actually access your account directly.
I’m spelling all of this out here because there is NO way to get support on the app or report these failures. It’s all very frustrating. As mush as I’ve enjoyed BECU as a credit union, if I find another good bank with a more quality money manager, this app would cause me to move on to another institution.
Hey developer! Please read and actually take action to fix and stop constant bugs!

Good but needs more features
Honestly this app has more and more become an indispensable way for me to smartly manage my money month by month, something that is exceptionally difficult as life happens. That being said, I have found so much good and bad over the years with using this app. The bad nowadays, since my last review over on Google’s Play Store, has been a few things that I’ll go in to depth on here:
First the good; The app exists, you can set budgets, you can see your net worth, you can transfer money, see past transactions, you can organize said transactions into special expense categories, and you can see the different balances across all accounts.
Next the bad: cannot create saving’s goals, cannot denote set amounts as certain types of transactions, and cannot easily link debit cards to Apple Pay.
As you can see this list of “bad” is negligible. In the grand scheme it is kind of useless.
To be honest the feature I want to give the most praise too right now if the budgeting and net worth tools. I’ll be doing a bit of work to ensure it’s as I believe but it’s definitely sounding like a good set of features if metrics can be a motivating factor in your life and a moderate sense of achievement. I know I know, my life is sad. Anyway, I intend to see how they influence me this next month and what happens. Wish me luck and I hope this review helps someone with BECU as their bank decide on if this mobile app is right for them.
