Thanks for your feedback on the sparkbars! They aren’t going anywhere!

A few days ago, we asked for feedback on the little green lines under the category names, asking if they were something you found useful. We got a lot of feedback (you can see it here), and it seems like a lot of you really love them. That’s awesome! And we’re so glad to know […]

So — yay! — there are gems […]

Be sure your e-mail address is correct!

Setting up a budget is exciting, I know. Thrill-a-minute, right? It’s important, though, that you come down off the high to make sure you’ve entered your e-mail address correctly when you create your account. I know you type your e-mail address every single day.

Holy cats!

Holy cats! Tumblr apparently doesn’t tell you by e-mail that people have asked you questions. Just saw for the first time that a bunch of you have asked questions here and have been waiting for answers. So sorry about that!

Update: We were able to get the site up not too long after we posted this

Update: We were able to get the site up not too long after we posted this. (We don’t want you thinking the site’s still down!) Many of you have probably already seen a few tweets from us about some downtime we’re having today. I wanted to post a quick note here for those of you […]

Pricing Changes for PearBudget

Just a quick announcement regarding PearBudget pricing. These types of notes are never fun to write. I’ll start off with the good news, then. If you currently have an account with PearBudget, your subscription price will not be changing! You signed on at a certain price point ($3/month or $30/year), and we are going to […]
