HyperJar is looking for Mumsnet users to test a new money management app that lets you plan, budget and grow your spending power in Jars. Please note this app is NOT a replacement for your bank account and will NOT affect your credit score. For more information on HyperJar, check out the website here.

Selected testers will be required to:
- Download the app from the App Store or Google Play, sign up and order a HyperJar card (it takes about a week to arrive)
- Create a Jar so that HyperJar can send £10 to your new account to spend using the app, wherever you like
- Transfer some money from your bank to your HyperJar account. This can be spent wherever you’d usually spend – no need to change shopping habits
- Start testing out the app (instructions on exactly how to do this will be sent to testers)

We’d like you to test HyperJar over four weeks. Once the test is over, if you don’t want to carry on using HyperJar, they will close your account and help you transfer any money you haven’t spent back into your bank account.

Here is how HyperJar describes itself: “HyperJar is the world’s smartest payment app. An easy, digital version of jam-jar budgeting. The Jars you create reflect your life, your spending and your goals. Jars for groceries, lunches, Christmas, kids’ clubs, nights out, holidays… With HyperJar, you can see where your money is going, not just where it went.

“So why use HyperJar? 1. Clearer, easier, happier money when you plan in Jars. For groceries, lunches, holidays. For life. 2. Shared spending, solved. Plan and spend together with Group Jars. Easy pop-up joint accounts and digital kitties for 2-30 people. 3. Make planning pay with our partners. Lock in money with them for an inflation-beating Annual Growth Rate of 4.8%. 4. Spend directly from any Jar with the world’s smartest payment card.”

Selected testers will be required to leave feedback on a private thread on Mumsnet as well as complete a short survey. All testers who do will be entered into a prize draw where 3 MNers will win a £100 voucher each of their choice (from a list).

Please don’t download the app directly from the App Store if you want to take part in this test – HyperJar are waiting to finish a few features which will be ready for Mumsnet users by the time we’ve selected our testers.

If you would like to sign up to test this app, please click here.

Thanks and good luck.

Done would love to try as I was pondering withdrawing cash and doing the envelope method.

AdalindMeisner Sat 12-Oct-19 09:02:59

Done, really like the idea of this.

darkriver19886 Sat 12-Oct-19 10:09:02

@Dangermouse80 I currently do the envelope method. You need a lot of self control lol. Something that I lack.

EagleVisionSquirrelWork Sat 12-Oct-19 15:31:06

NotSuchASmugMarriedNow1 Sun 13-Oct-19 09:27:39

Lovemenorca Sun 13-Oct-19 12:33:43

@Lovemenorca Don't worry, you'll still be eligible for selection. We'll be selecting testers next week. If your name comes out of the hat we'll send you an email to let you know! smile

Ooh I d love to be chosen. Sounds interesting.
Mmhq - is the hyperjar app already an IP and running app that anyone can use? Or is it still in development stage?

foreverblessedbee Mon 14-Oct-19 20:53:45

* already an app that's meant to say .

LucyBMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 15-Oct-19 12:04:43

@foreverblessedbee Yes, the early stage app is available in the App Store but not yet on Google Play. MNers will get access to the latest iOS and Android versions if they are selected to take part in the test smile
