Amazon Echo Tracks Expenses & Pays Bills
If you have accounts with Capital One, you can use Alexa to perform your bank transactions. You can totally avoid using a computer or mobile app to log into the account, and navigate around to view your account information, transactions, and to make payments.
The first thing you have to do is enable the “Capital One” skill either on your Amazon Alexa mobile app or in a browser. Once you do that, you will be asked to link your account by entering your username & password (once). At this point, you will also be asked to create an optional PIN. Alexa would ask you for your PIN whenever you ask her about your banking information to verify that it’s really you. After that you can ask her all sorts of questions about your bank accounts and even make payments!
For your credit card:
“How much did I spend at Target last month?”
“How much did I spend at Starbucks last weekend?”
“What’s my current credit card balance?”
“When is my credit card bill due?”
“To pay my credit card bill.”
For your bank accounts:
“What’s my checking account balance?”
“What are my recent transactions?”
For your auto loan:
“What’s my car loan principal balance?”
“What’s my payoff quote?”
“When is my car loan due?”
“To pay my car loan bill.”
For your home loan:
“What’s the principal balance on my mortgage?”
“When is my next mortgage payment due?”
“How much is my next mortgage payment?”
