What kind of friend are you when it comes to money?

We’ve all been there - those days where you accidentally leave your wallet in the car or at a restaurant that doesn’t take card.

Thankfully your friends are always there to help you out, but of course there’s a catch - you then have to pay them back.

Thankfully there’s Circle - the quick and easy way to pay back your friend.

Which type of friend are you? Or more importantly are your friends....

The Shnaaaaaake

The friend that borrows money and disappears into the long grass for a month. Even if you set 60 reminders on this friend's phone, they’ll always find a way to avoid the conversation and change the subject.

Pure shnnnaaakkkkkeeee.

Good thing you can track them down using Circle - just like St. Patrick.

The Stickler

“What was it I owed you again, €4.32? Don’t forget to take away the 40c I gave you yesterday … “

They have a budget and they're sticking to it.

They'd forget their head if it wasn't tied on to them

That friend who floats around with a smile on their face, head in the sky and their wallet in the car - the same person that also happens to have your entire wardrobe in their front room.

Don’t worry, you’ll get it back …. at some stage. Their heart is in the right place.

These friends take adulting to another level - ‘that’s in your account there’. The beauty of downloading Circle.
