What can U do for me?
See how U by BB&T can make managing your money easy and convenient.
So what exactly is U? Here’s the two-minute version.
U is based on the idea that everyone’s finances are unique and that managing your money should be simple. Let’s take a look inside.
First of all, you can still do all the basics. It’s very easy to see your balances, transfer money, pay bills, and deposit checks.
But now we’ve separated all of the features into tiles, like you see here. And here’s the cool part: You can create and customize your own financial dashboard based on what’s important to you.
So, what if you’re all about rewards? Move your credit card rewards to the top of your dashboard so it’s the first thing you see when you log in. Or maybe you want to move your categorized spending from here to here.
Even colors are your choice. Make U your own with a variety of new color themes.
Or say you don’t want any of this. Say you want the cleanest dashboard possible. Well, you can skip the fancy tiles and have that, too.
But that’s not all. There are a lot of new features, too.
For example, now you can see all of your accounts, not just with BB&T.
Paying your friends is way easier than it used to be, too. You can pay anyone directly with just their email address or mobile phone number.
You get a real banker that you can connect with, or schedule appointments on your time.
With Quick View Balance, you can see balances without logging in.
You can set your own customized budget with our Plan and Analyze tools, and we’ll track your progress as you go.
This is the new receipt tile. It helps you capture and store your receipts, even attach them to your transactions. No more paper needed.
What you see today is only the beginning. We’ll continue to add new features that help make your life a little easier and help you make better financial decisions.
Then we want to hear about them from you. You can tell us if you like them, or if they need more work, and what we should build next. Because at the end of the day, it’s your bank, it’s your money, and it’s all about you, and that’s what U is all about. Log on or enroll today.
Learn how to get cash back with your everyday purchases with U by BB&T®.
Welcome to the demo for BB&T Deals—the feature that helps you earn cash back for everyday purchases you make with your BB&T Debit and Prepaid cards.
First of all, you don't need to sign up or enroll. BB&T Deals are automatically available to you as long as you have an eligible debit or prepaid card at BB&T.
You'll notice that the BB&T Deals tile will show up automatically on your U dashboard if you're logging in on a desktop. In the mobile app, it's easy to add the Deals tile to your dashboard, like this.
The Deals tile will give you relevant offers from BB&T that are based on your purchase activity. Like 10% cash back on your next trip to a favorite restaurant or store.
To take advantage of the offers, here's all you have to do:
Add the deal either by tapping on your mobile phone or clicking on your computer. The deal will show you the offer, how much cash back you'll get and the expiration date. After you add the deal, just shop at the store using your debit or prepaid card. And the cash back will be credited to your account the following month—for most purchases.
So, I'm going to add this offer for Chili's, who's offering 10% cash back. All I have to do now is use my debit or prepaid card to pay for a meal before the deal expires. And I get 10% cash back right into my account. It's that easy.
Click. Shop. Earn. Simple, Right?
And be assured, your personal information is never shared with the retailers who offer these cash back deals.
The more you use your card, the more deals you will get.
Remember, in order to earn cash back, you've got to add your deals before you shop.
And, there's no harm in adding every deal that comes your way. If you don't end up using it, there's no penalty.
By the way, we'll send you deal alerts, too. We'll notify you when a new one is available so you never miss out on any deals.
We hope this demo is helpful. And we hope the new BB&T Deals puts a lot of cash back in your pocket.
