Have I tried SaveUp.com? No.
I'm very paranoid about sharing my banking details with any site, even with all the state-of-the-art security features sites like SaveUp have in place.
In the news, I'm constantly hearing and reading stories of sites getting hacked, and huge batches of credit card numbers getting stolen (example.)
Back in 2011, my Facebook account was hacked. My Google account was compromised soon after. Needless to say, I don't use Facebook anymore (I'm perfectly happy sticking with Google Plus.)
So, if you're comfortable sharing your sensitive details with SaveUP, give the site a try, and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
