YouNeedaBudget.com: Free for College Students

Need some budgeting help? If you’re a college student, you can sign up for YouNeedaBudget.com for FREE right now. Here’s what they said in their blog post:

More kids are graduating from college absolutely weighed down by student debt. I don’t know what portion of their debt is avoidable, but I’m confident that if those students were following YNAB’s Four Rules, they would graduate with less debt.

Starting today, if you’re a college student (even only part-time), we’ll let you use YNAB for free while you’re in school.

How to Obtain Your Free Copy of YNAB

  1. Write to us at support@youneedabudget.com and include proof of registration at your college.

  2. We’ll send you a special license key, good until the end of the calendar year.

  3. At the end of the year, just shoot us another email if you’re still cranking away on your schoolwork, and we’ll send you a new license key that’s good for the entire next year.

Find out more details here.

    I LOVE YNAB. Worth the price a hundred times over! I take about 5-10 minutes twice a week to input our data (manually entering purchases helps me keep on top of things). Plus, they have awesome free online classes that walk you through everything. I have nothing but good things to say!!!!!

    We use YNAB and absolutely recommend it! Besides having awesome software, the method and philosophy are wonderful. They have wonderful, free training materials including live online classes which are informative, motivating and fun.

    YNAB encourages you to “live on last month’s income” which has helped tremendously with paying off our law school debt.

    Just the other day I wrote a post on how we switched to YNAB and highlighted many of the things we love about it. I’ll post the link to it here (if that’s okay) for those who are interested in my YNAB review: http://www.sixfiguresunder.com/best-thing-budget-mint-to-ynab

    This is amazing software with a great app! We have been using it for at least a year. So helpful! Works very well with Dave Ramsey budget plan.

    We love YNAB! We have been using it for several years and find it really user-friendly. It has been incredibly helpful to us in managing expenses that are paid yearly or irregularly (real estate taxes, or home maintenance expenses, for example). It works a bit like cash envelopes in that you can budget every dollar each month, and it will show the accumulation of funds in a given category from month to month. So when it’s time for vacation, paying taxes, Christmas, etc., we know exactly how much we have saved for each purpose.
    Also, there is a great mobil app. Our teenager uses it to keep track of his own spending while out and about so that he doesn’t have to mess with receipts. Recommended very highly!

    We have been using YNAB for a couple of years now and really love everything about it. One of my favorite parts is the phone ap. My husband can go out to lunch at work put his receipt in his phone and when I go grocery shopping that afternoon I know exactly how much is left in our food budget (without having to call and find out how much he spent). We enter all our receipts as soon as possible. My favorite is date night grocery shopping. Husband loads the groceries into the car and I sit in the front seat and quickly put the receipt in and check to see if there is money leftover for ice cream on the way home.

    The support and the community over at YNAB is amazing. Any questions are quickly answered and they really make sure you understand the method with plenty of free classes and support. It is so much better than any old “financial” software, it is specifically for budgets.
