It wasn’t long ago when Brentt, a Marine Veteran, got caught in a bind. He feared losing his job as his car broke down and was in dire need to buy a replacement. When looking for solutions, he came across our cash advance app, Brigit. Luckily, we were able to help him out just in time, sending him a $250 cash advance within the same day. Having enough money to buy a new car, Brentt’s job was saved – his words, not ours!


Brentt’s Story

After getting out of the Marine Corps, I started a full-time job as a maintenance planner for a global refractory in Columbus, Ohio. My company makes parts for induction furnaces. My workday starts early at 6:00 AM and runs through 4:00 PM. Over the last few years, I have taken on more responsibility at work and am now at a supervisory role. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and dog at our home in Delaware, Ohio.


How has the Brigit cash advance app helped you?

Brigit saved my job. My wife and I have two cars, and one was done for. The cost of the repair was pointless because the amount of money could just buy us a new car. Our paychecks were still a few days away so we were in a bind. Without getting a car soon, I was going to lose my job. Luckily, we found Brigit, a cash advance app, and we received an advance for $250. With help from Brigit’s money, we were able to purchase a $500 car with 140K miles on it, and we were able to keep our jobs.

Since this incident, Brigit, has been helping me manage my account and sends me money, which especially helps me in the last 2-3 days before my paycheck when I need the cushion. It’s a major relief to know that Brigit cash advance app has and will continue to be there for me when I need them.


What does financial stability mean to you?

I feel stable when I know I can make it to my next payday without having to worry. Have you ever gone to the grocery store just to buy trash bags, detergent, and razors and found yourself spending $60? Financial stability is not having to stress about paying for the necessities.


As Brentt mentioned, financial stability is not having to worry that you won’t be able to afford a necessary expense. Unlike other overdraft protection apps out there, Brigit is the only solution that can send you money automatically to prevent you from dipping below $0. This prevents unwanted overdraft fees and helps you save more of your money. In fact, Brigit members, on average, have saved $525 in overdraft fees since joining Brigit.
