Up Year 2021

> Your 2021 Calculations are Complete

The end of the never ending year is here.

2021 felt a bit like we all just managed to keep our motherboards running at optimal temperature without crashing. Now the finish line is in sight. We're decompressing, defragging our minds and wrapping up your money movements for this year.

UpYear is your very own personalised annual report — the easiest way to take a look back at how you spent and saved for this year. Use it to get a better understanding of your money, and put yourself in a good position to upgrade your financial health in 2022.

> Getting Your 2021 UpYear in Review

Running your 2021 UpYear in review is easy. Start by booting your app as normal. We've pre-installed your UpYear review to reveal itself as an item in your activity feed.

Starting today, we’re sending out a special notification direct to your device letting you know your personalised UpYear calculations are complete and ready to view. Tap the 2021 UpYear activity item at any time to relive the magic of your annual report over and over.

Make sure you’re running the latest version of the Up app (2.2.5) and have made at least 1 successful purchase with your Up account in 2021 to score a report.

If you’re an Upsider, your UpYear will arrive at some point from today. Keep an eye on your activity feed to find it.

No two UpYears are the same. This is a special report for your eyes only! We’ve purposely kept your financial bits private and only you can access your review.

Your review will hang around in your browser for a bit before you’ll need to head back into your app to authenticate and relive your 2021 UpYear once more.

A look into a future you can create for yourself starting in 2022.

New Hardware You Can Count On.

Your 2021 UpYear in review has a plus side. We’ve installed not one but two new calculators to deliver you more annual data. It all adds up.

Perk Up mug

Perk-Culator

The Perk-Culator estimates the number of singular coffees you may have purchased over the whole year. Using the criteria of Perk Up, we’ve run the numbers for the number of purchases $6 and under made at shops in the ‘Restaurants & Cafe’ spending category.

Whilst all estimated beverages may not be caffeinated, the numbers they generated are guaranteed to be interesting.

Factory

Carb-Culator

Your 2021 UpYear comes complete with our very first Carbon Emissions calculator. Running as just a rough approximation, the Carb-Calculator analyses your spending categories,amount of card purchases and charges over the year and estimates the total tonnes of C02 emissions generated from your spending.

Please note this number should be viewed as indicative only. It does not reflect specific businesses or choices you may have made to reduce your footprint (e.g. buying green power, or spending with carbon neutral/negative businesses).

Thanks to every Upsider who came along with us for the ride this year. We hope your 2021 UpYear in Review is everything you thought it would be, and if it’s not that’s totally okay! 2022 is already shaping up to be everything you dreamed.

If UpYear made you think you’d like to do things a bit differently in 2022 have a read of some stories from other Upsiders using Up to get on the path to feeling good about money.

Hope your 2021 was out of this world
