Simplify the Holidays with Zelle®
The holidays are approaching, and all year long, you’ve heard a loved one 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!
USE Zelle® TO GET PAID BACK
Splitting the cost of a big gift with your friends or family is easy with Zelle®. Use Zelle® to easily send a request1 for the money you’re owed, and they can quickly and safely send you money directly from their mobile banking app, even if you bank at different places.2 And the best part is, the money will be available to you in minutes.2
HOW TO REQUEST MONEY FOR THE GROUP GIFT
Step 1: Log in to SLFCU’s mobile app.
Step 2: In the main menu, select “More.”
Step 3: Select "Send money with Zelle®."
Step 4: Enroll your U.S. mobile number or email address.
Step 5: Once you’ve enrolled, select "Request," then add a new recipient (or choose someone from your Zelle contacts), then type in the requested amount, add a little note such as “Mom and Dad’s Gift,” and click “Request.”
Pro-tip: For an even easier experience, have them enroll with Zelle® before sending your first request. You can send money to someone not yet enrolled, and they’ll get an email with instructions on how to do so.
That’s it! No need to ask anyone to run to the ATM or search for that checkbook they never use.
1. Payment requests to persons not already enrolled with Zelle® must be sent to an email address.
2. U.S. checking or savings account required to use Zelle®. Transactions between enrolled consumers typically occur in minutes
