But what can you do in a mere month? We’ll let these customers speak for themselves on what happened during their free trial.

  • I Paid Off $1,500 in My First Month of YNAB

    The day we started YNAB we were nearly $20,000 in debt and only had $300 for an emergency. One year later, we’ve saved $18,000 and have paid off almost half our debt.”

  • I Have a Lot Less Stress

    I have money in my savings account for the first time in 10 years.”

  • It Takes Me 30 Seconds Per Day

    I tried other programs—it was all just a whole lot of work, and I never had a clear sense of how we were actually doing. YNAB has made a huge difference in my awareness and day-to-day decision making. ”

I Wish We Would’ve Started Sooner!

My wife and I can attest to the fact that the average budgeter saves around $600 in 2 months. We did! We love everything about YNAB except that WE DIDN’T START SOONER!!!!!!!!!”

—Gideon, YNAB User Since 2019

Why 34 days?

You’ll see the real power of a zero-based budget when the month rolls over. And while 30 days has September, April, June, and November, all the rest have 31. So, the usual 30-day trial wouldn’t be quite enough for someone who started on the first day of the month. We built in a few extra days so you could really feel the magic, no matter when you begin.
