2 Ways Alexa Makes Staying on Top of Your Finances Easier:
#1. Send & receive money using the Alexa Paypal skill
I love using PayPal. And now with Alexa it’s easy to send or request money from friends and check your account balance just by asking.
To enable the skill, tap/click here > tap/click the “Enable” button. Follow a few easy steps to link your Paypal account and create a Paypal Alexa pin for added security (Alexa will ask you for it each time you open the skill). Then just say “Alexa, ask Paypal to request $50 from Ben” or “Alexa, ask PayPal to send $10 to Vicky.”
#2. Check credit card activity & balances and make payments just by asking Alexa
American Express, Capital One, Amazon Store Card (of course!) and others have awesome Alexa skills that allow you to easily check your balance, recent activity and membership rewards or make payments. For example, now that I’ve enabled the American Express skill, I can get any of this information and make payments just by saying “Alexa, open Amex.”
Search the Alexa skill directory for your credit card to see if it has an Alexa skill and then tap the “Enable” button to start using it!
