At around 2:30 today I'm going to be strolling into Poco on the lower east side for the celebratory birthday brunch of a good friend. We will all eat and drink with no end in sight until of course the check comes, when inevitably there is the fun matter of dividing the bill. Who has cash? Who has credit? Who had 1 bloody? Who had 8? Talk about a brunch buzz kill. What if there was a way to quickly transfer funds between you and your friends just by sending a text message? It would be genius right? Enter VENMO, the site created to do just that. All you need to do to get started is 1. create an account 2. "trust" people you would like to exchange funds 3. enter all your banking information. And just like that you're ready to brunch!
SINCE THE SITE IS STILL IN BETA YOU WILL NEED THIS CODE TO BECOME A MEMBER : aj0330g
If you eat out in groups constantly, never carry cash, or haven't been able to locate your check book since Bank of America announced online banking, then VENMO my friends is for you!
If you want more information on VENMO head over to Vayner Media.
