‘Tis the season to be jolly. And if you’re a student, ‘tis the season to be stressed about exams, long travel days, and getting asked by your relatives what you’re going to do with your life. And on top of that, the last thing you want to do is bicker with people about splitting up the cost of the treats you buy to survive the season.
One of the ways you can fix that headache is by using a Venmo card, the app’s new debit card that’s connected to your Venmo account (and therefore your balance), and can be used to spend your balance in the real world. You can apply for the card via the app (which you use all the time already) and get the card at no extra cost. Once it’s in your hands, the card lets you split bills with friends through the app, so there’s no awkward credit card shuffle or emails hounding people to pay up. Now that you don’t have to worry about cost-splitting, here are some gifts that you can buy with the Venmo card and give to your fellow students or yourself to say, “hey, you got this” but also “hey, here’s something beautiful.”
