Send and Receive Money With Zelle®
Zelle allows you to quickly and securely send and receive money with almost anybody that has a bank account in the United States.
Payments can be made right on your phone from the PlainsCapital mobile app. All you need is your recipient’s email address or U.S. mobile number.
Zelle is the perfect way to send and receive money with friends, family, or anybody else you know.
All it takes is a few minutes. We’re fast, easy and headache-free.
Fast & Easy Approval
Get your quick loan approval online. Money in minutes. †
What’s the difference between Zelle and Member-to-Member transfers?
Zelle is not intended to replace Member-to-Member transfers when you’re transferring money to another Navy Federal member. Navy Federal has partnered with Zelle to allow members to send money to or receive money from friends or family with an external (non-Navy Federal) account. Both Member-to-Member transfers and Zelle are available to you when you select Send Money in digital banking.*
How long does it take to receive funds?
Money in minutes. Money sent with Zelle is designed to deliver payments, typically within minutes. All it takes is for your debit card to be activated—which you can do online or via our mobile app. Once your card is activated, select Send Money, then Send Money with Zelle to get started. For future scheduled payments, funds will be available on the delivery day you select. What if they’re not enrolled? If you send money through Zelle with an email or phone number to someone who isn’t enrolled, they’ll receive a notification that prompts them to enroll. After they enroll, it may take 1 to 3 business days to receive the money you sent, depending on processing times. (This is a security feature.) Once that payment completes, your recipient will typically receive future payments faster. If the payment is pending for more than 3 days, we recommend confirming that the recipient has activated their Zelle profile and that you entered his or her email address or U.S. mobile number correctly. If the recipient doesn’t respond to the payment notification by enrolling after 14 days, the money will be returned to your account automatically. If you have questions or need help, you can call the Navy Federal Zelle Support Team toll-free at 1-888-842-6328.
5. Sell Your Unused Gift Cards
It seems like the older I get the more gift cards I get – a lot of them are for places I never even go to! While I appreciate the gesture I also don’t want to let those gift cards go unused. Luckily there are tons of places where you can cash in unwanted gift cards.
If you need money on the spot you can now sell your unwanted gift cards at Coinstar machines. Just look for the special kiosks, scan your gift card, and you’ll instantly get a cash offer.
We recommend you check out CardPool to sell your giftcards. They have the best prices, and they typically offer a bonus if you select an Amazon giftcard in exchange.
How to Earn Money Fast
Let’s say you dislike loans and want to avoid them at all costs. If the emergency is not that expensive, you could easily earn enough through short-term work to repair your car or fund other similar expenses in a day or two. Also, if you take any of these quick loan solutions we’ve discussed above, you’ll find yourself with more than enough interest rates to cover and might need an extra job anyway. But, which odd jobs pay well?
Drive People or Food Around Your Town
If you have a car, you can put your weekends or evenings to good use to earn some fast cash. You can sign up with some popular solutions, such as Uber and Lyft, and get paid for giving people a ride. If you are not up for chatting with strangers, you can sign up with delivery services such as Postmates and OrderUp. These will pay you to be a delivery driver for takeout and other items.
Babysitting and Dog Sitting
If you like spending time with cute babies or puppies and other fluffy friends, then babysitting or dog sitting overnight are excellent ways to make extra money. You can sign up with some of the most popular websites in the niche, such as Care.com and Rover, which will effortlessly match you with parents in need. A babysitters’ average hourly wage is $28 an hour, and as a dog sitter, you can earn around $14 per hour. Overnight pet sitting can net anywhere from $20 to $60, depending on the area you’re in.
Airbnb Your Spare Room
If you have a spare room, you can rent it on Airbnb. While often associated with whole vacation homes or apartments – Airbnb also allows extra room (even shared room) listings. Consider listing your spare room if you want to make money and live in a reasonably popular part of town that legally allows short-term rentals. Airbnb has a 3% service fee, and you can expect the payment about 24 hours after the guest checks in.
Sell Your Knowledge or Craft
Online tutoring has been all the rage in the past decade or so. If you have extensive knowledge on a particular topic, there is no reason you shouldn’t share it with others. These days, you can become a virtual tutor for students on various topics and earn some quick money while you’re at it.
On the same note, if you are a master of a particular craft or have a creative hobby, you should consider selling your handiwork. You can set up an Etsy business or sell on Facebook, Craigslist, or other online marketplaces for some quick cash.
