How does the QUBER app work?

QUBER withdraws money from your bank account and sets it aside in the QUBER Vault (like a pre-authorized debit):

  • Choose from QUBER’s list of Group Savings Challenges to earn rewards sponsored by organizations like Momentum
  • Enter your bank, transit and account number and choose your withdrawal dates. Each month (or every other week) QUBER withdraws money from your account and transfers it to the QUBER Vault
  • Cash incentives are automatically added each time you save
  • Skip a withdrawal or cashout at any time. The longer you save, the more rewards you can earn

Small savings add up and soon you’ll have an emergency fund  without even thinking about it. You may even have enough to go back to school, start a business or purchase a home. By setting aside money as savings, QUBER reduces temptation to spend and helps you stick to your budget.

    (Airdrie, Cochrane, Chestermere, Okotoks, Stoney Nakoda, Morley, Tsuu T’ina, Siksika, etc)

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the QUBER app work?

The QUBER savings app is free to download. When you sign up for the Momentum Savings Challenge on QUBER, your bank account will be linked in the app securely. Money will be automatically withdrawn from your bank account bi-weekly or monthly (you choose!) and moved to the QUBER bank account, the QUBER Vault, for safe keeping. Each time you reach pre-defined challenge milestones, you will earn incentives. View your incentives balance in QUBER.

Is this a scam? Where do the incentives come from?

We are a Registered Charity. Since 1999, Momentum’s Matched-Savings Programs
have empowered people who are living on low incomes with limited  assets. The funding for this program is from our financial partners who support our organization. Learn more about our funders here.

QUBER is a Canadian fintech company and recent winner of the Desjardins Fintech Challenge in 2020.

When do I receive my Challenge incentives?

The starting bonus is earned as soon as you join the Savings Challenge. All other  incentives that are tied to withdrawals from your bank account will be earned 5 business days after the money starts to transfer to the QUBER Vault.

Can I stop the Savings Challenge once I've started it?

Stop the Challenge by clicking, “Cashout”. You can then choose to ‘Cashout and Continue” which transfers your savings and incentives to your linked account, but you can still continue the Challenge. Or, choose to “Cashout & Quit’.

If you are worried that you might not have money in your bank account for your next savings withdrawal, you can skip a withdrawal (watch how to video by clicking here). First, open QUBER and navigate to the Momentum Savings Challenge. Under the Details section, you will see ‘Next withdrawal’ with a date. Look for the ‘Skip withdrawal’ link. This will skip the next withdrawal and automatically continue with the next withdrawal. Please note, by skipping a withdrawal, you may lose out on some incentives.

BE AWARE: if QUBER attempts to withdraw money that is not available in your account, you are at risk of paying a Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) fee to your bank. NSF fees can be upwards of $50.

What are QUBER Jars?

There are many different ways to save on QUBER. The Momentum Savings Challenge is one way. Setting up a QUBER jar is a different way. What you save in a QUBER jar will not count towards your Momentum Savings Challenge.

We recommend that you avoid using jars until you have completed our challenge. Our most successful savers focus on one thing at a time. However, if you've already set up a jar and want to pause it, watch this video to learn how.
