Sweep Transfers for Astra

Auto transfer surplus funds without stretching your balance

Astra is the first to offer Sweep Transfers directly to consumers. Typically only available through private banking, “sweeps” automatically move funds from one account to another based on a predefined balance. Sweeps are just the latest advanced banking feature we are making available to everyone!

Reviews
  • Pros: 

    I want to have my money managed for me without spending time looking at my account and making transfers. This is so painless.

    Cons: 

    None so far!

    This is how I use sweep. I have my checking (where I get paid) and my savings (where I invest money regularly into Robinhood). Whenever the balance goes over in moves into my savings and I know on the 30th I can take the savings amount and transfer it into Robinhood to invest right away.

  • Pros: 

    Easy to use and great place to see all banking apps together

    Cons: 

    None at this time

    Been a daily user for about a month now. Great way to view what is going on with all of my banks and investments in once place. Also easy way to set up savings accounts and goals for myself. Love this app.

Hi Product Hunt! 👋 We are excited to share the launch of Sweep Transfers for Astra!! We launched the Astra for iOS app a few months ago so you could easily and effectively manage your money – get your cash to the right place at the right time and save more for your goals, automatically. Included in our first product was basic transfer functionality between your accounts but it has always been our goal to create more smart and dynamic transfer features for you. Ones that adapt to your balances week-to-week and month-to-month. Enter Sweep Transfers! Sweep transfers automatically move funds over a given amount from one account to another on a recurring basis. By using “sweeps,” you can continue to move funds out of your source account but without overly affecting your balance. The transfer amount is calculated dynamically based on your current balance and runs on your desired schedule. Smart and flexible! This advanced banking feature is typically only available to high net worth individuals via private banking or brokerage accounts. Astra is the first to make sweep transfers directly available to consumers! Give Astra a try and let us know how you use sweeps! You can share feedback here, through Intercom in-app, or email me at gil@astra.finance or @gil_akos on Twitter. Currently bank transfer functionality is limited to Astra users with US-based bank accounts. If that isn’t you, you can subscribe here to follow our progress as we continue to develop our product and work on launching beyond the US. We look forward to serving you!
