Sleigh the Gift Giving Season

The holidays are approaching, and all year long, you’ve heard your parents talk about wanting a certain something. You know they’d never go out and buy it for themselves, so it’s the perfect present to surprise them with this year. Unfortunately, the price tag is a bit frightful. This year, go in on gifts with others and split the cost of the bill! 

Using Zelle® to Get Paid Back is so Delightful 

Splitting the cost of a big gift with your siblings is easy with Zelle®. Use Zelle® to easily send a request1 for the money you’re owed, and your sibling can quickly and safely send you money directly from their mobile banking app, even if you bank at different places2. And the best part is, the money will be available to you in minutes2
