The Graduation Gift That Keeps on Giving

Future-proof your graduate with total financial control

As a YNABer, you know that budgeting is a total life-changer. You’re less stressed. You’ve conquered your debt. You enjoy life more because you have financial freedom.

Want to take vacation? Pay off your debt? Upgrade your home? Buy in bulk? Save on groceries? Whatever excites you! Budgets do not exist to tell you what you can’t do. Rather, budgets are a tool to ensure you have money for the things that matter most to you, whatever those things may be.

And this isn’t just about money. Budgeting actually makes you happier and healthier for the long haul. 

Wouldn’t it be great if there was an easy way to share that feeling of total financial control (and peace of mind!) with the next generation? Say, as a gift to celebrate their graduation? You know the old saying. It’s something along the lines of:

“Give a graduate some cash and you’ll buy their pizza today. Teach a graduate to budget and they’ll have financial freedom, and pizza, for life.”

Good news. It’s easy to send graduates off into the “real world” with a simple plan to master their own finances. Give them YNAB as a graduation gift and we will teach them how to control their money—before they even have any! 

Don’t you wish someone had taught you how to budget when you were a spry college grad, or given you a real perspective on what it’s like to be strapped with student loan debt? Think of all the … no wait, stop. It’s too depressing. Back to the graduates!

The Best Graduation Gifts Have Lasting Benefits

This graduation season, the gift guides will tell you to stick with the classic dispensable college graduation gift ideas—airpods, a coffee maker, a tote, an Amazon gift card, a Starbucks mug, or a monogrammed pen.

Better yet, you could give the new grad a more useful gift…one that keeps on giving! With the gift of YNAB, they’ll have everything they need to build a future that’s stable, secure, and free of student loan debt.

Click here to give a one-year subscription to YNAB as a great graduation gift. We’ll send them a snazzy celebratory email with all the details about their free year of YNAB. 

Everyone tells college students that the world is their oyster…and a subscription to YNAB can help them make that promise a reality.
