Help Your Graduate Build a Ridiculously Awesome Future—Give the Gift of YNAB!

by Shannon Marie

Or as we like to call it:
“The Gift That Keeps On Giving Financial Peace and Control for A Lifetime.”

As a YNABer, you know that budgeting is a total game- life-changer. You’re less stressed. You’ve conquered your debt. You enjoy life more because you have choices. (Ahhh, choices. I’m already less stressed!)

Want to take vacation? Pay off your debt? Upgrade your home? Buy in bulk? Whatever excites you! Budgets do not exist to tell you what you can’t do; rather, budgets are a tool to ensure you have money for the things that matter most to you, whatever those things may be.

And this isn’t just about money. Budgeting actually makes you happier and healthier.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was an easy way to share that feeling of control (and peace of mind!) with the next generation? Say, as a gift to celebrate their graduation? You know the old saying. It’s something along the lines of:

“Give a graduate some cash and you’ll buy their pizza today.
Teach a graduate to budget and they’ll have financial peace, and pizza, for life.”

Good news. It’s easy to send graduates off into the “real world” with a simple plan to master their own finances. Give them YNAB and we will teach them how to control their money before they even have any! Don’t you wish someone had taught you how to budget when you graduated? Think of … no wait, stop. It’s too depressing. Back to the graduates!

Congrats! Happy Graduation! Use YNAB!

All you have to do to give a one-year subscription to YNAB is click here and add the emails of the lucky graduate(s) in your life. We’ll send them a snazzy email with all the details about their free year of YNAB. Or you can always go to your “My Account” page and click on the gifting link:

 

 

This graduation season, you could stick with the usual suspects—cash, a gift card or a monogrammed pen—or you could gift your grad with everything they need to build a future that’s stable, secure (and free of student loan debt!).

Everyone tells new graduates that the world is their oyster … and a subscription to YNAB can help them make it so.

P.S. We found the perfect card to inspire your new grad to budget …

Your Next Step

Remember, budgeting is not restrictive. You won’t be spending less, you’ll be spending right. You can do this! Today. Right now. What do you have to lose? Except all that debt and stress. (Ok, so kind of a lot.)
