Your Bright Stash account is a secure financial account with funds up to $250,000 FDIC-insured secured by bank-level encryption. When Bright moves funds from your checking account, your funds are stored in your Bright Stash account. Bright uses those funds to make your card payments or to build your savings with Bright. You can always adjust how much Bright moves into your Stash account, and once they’re posted, you can withdraw them at any time, moving funds back to your checking account. “Bright Stash Account” has been previously called the “Bright Account,” which has all the same features and security.
Bright’s new patented A.I. system studies your income and spending habits and builds a personalized Bright Plan, finding the fastest, smartest way to pay off your debts, based on your finances and your goals. Your Bright Plan always pays the minimum due on every card you connect, always on time, but it pays more on the cards with the highest interest charges--so you’re always saving money too. You can set and adjust your own goals and your own pace at any time. Or you can rely on Bright’s AI to get things right. Upcoming Payments are always in view at the Home tab in the app.
In the app, you can pause Bright’s service whenever you want. During your pause period, we’ll stop moving funds into your Bright Stash Account. You always have full control over your money.
We based our calculations on the average US credit card APR of 21% in January 2020 (source: WalletHub). We then assessed the impact of paying an extra $25 per month towards your credit card balances over a 5-year period.We identified that most Bright customers could afford paying an extra $6 per week, or $25 per month, and that any interest savings could be reinvested in further paying down debt. This results in accelerating the pay-down and consequent interest savings.
Bright uses your bank and credit card information to learn about your personal finances, to design a Bright Plan that works best for you, and to connect to your accounts, so we can move funds and make your payments for you. Nothing else.We take extreme care with our customers' financial information. Bright has partnered with Evolve Bank and Trust, an FDIC-insured member. All payments are logged with the US Federal Reserve, so your money is safe and returned to you if there are any issues.
We support a wide range of approved banks and cards across the United States. If you don’t find yours yet, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or our live chat. We will do our best to get it into Bright.

Please check your spelling. Typos or misspellings can throw off our search. If you still can't find it, we may not support the bank yet, but we're working to include it. If you have any questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
