This post is a little bit different to my normal posts.
An Auckland university student who is interning for a finance company has reached out to me. They are looking for people to user test a new product. Their product is a personal finance management tool that presents you with different insights about how you spend your money and helps you automatically categorise bank transactions. You get graphs and a fully calculated budget according to your expenses and I am sure that you will be interested in looking at your personal finances too.
I like to support new financial tools that have the ability to help people on their FI journey. I currently use PocketSmith to keep track of my spending, income, networth, and budgeting all in one place. And I currently like using PocketSmith, but any competition out there is good. Competition creates better products for everyone. So I gave PiggyCalc a quick go. Here is the user testing link. I uploaded my bank CSV file and it calculated the following.
Do you want to get $10?
The team at PiggyCalc are giving away $10NZD to each user that tests their product. The product is a personal finance management tool that presents you with different insights about how you spend your money and helps you automatically categorise bank transactions. You get graphs and a fully calculated budget according to your expenses. Simply upload a CSV file of your bank transactions, and let PiggyCalc do the rest!
To qualify for the $10 and get the chance to try a new product, you must meet the following criteria:
- Must use the invitation link provided below
- You must upload at least 200 transactions (more is better)
- Upload transactions across at least the most recent 3 months (ideally 12 months or more)
- Must be a genuine new user (e.g must not just use different bank accounts or split up accounts or manually modify CSV files or reupload different time periods, multiple email addresses etc)
- Must create PiggyCalc account (otherwise they cannot reach out to you via your contact details to give you the funds)
Is this safe?
Here is the user testing link:

The money will be distributed altogether in the week of 20 December. This is to allow us to check that people are not making multiple accounts/ modifying their CSV files. So make sure you do it before then!
Any questions feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
What do you think?
If you get the chance to try out PiggyCalc, help out this university intern, and get $10, then please feel free to comment on how you found the product. I think it looks like it has potential. I’ve only given it a quick go at this stage. I will have a closer look in the next few weeks.
