We’ve all been there at some point or another, grabbing the extra round of drinks, or shouting brunch for a friend because the cafe doesn’t split the bill. We pick up the bill thinking it’ll come out in the wash, right? But when an awkward amount of time passes and payday is just a little too far away, you find yourself with a tricky dilemma – do you chase your mate down for the money they owe you, or simply live off Mi Goreng for the next week?
Anyone who knows me, or follows my Instagram, knows I often stretch my budget more than I’d care to admit and have moments of generosity where I spot my mates. I know I’m not the only one doing it either – research from new instant payments app Beem It, has shown Australians are out of pocket more than $6.2 billion to their mates.
Perhaps there’s a wild assumption that having an Oscar nominated sister means I’m flush with cash. But in reality, it’s what I like to call 21st Century #adulting.
So if you’re like me, and want a quick and easy way to get back in the black without feeling awkward chasing up friends then you need to start using Beem It.
