Better Debit Card Security, Right in the Palm of Your Hand

Control and secure your money with the MobiMoney™ app

At Burling Bank we want you to have the flexibility, access, convenience, and security you need. In addition to our online banking solution and mobile app for your account management, we also provide you with a convenient, secure way to manage every aspect of your debit card activity right from your smartphone: the MobiMoney app.

Customize Your Activity Alerts

With MobiMoney, you can manage your card anywhere and anytime from your iPhone or Android device. It allows you to set up instant alerts to monitor purchases on your card based on your custom preferences. For example, you can set it up to send you an alert anytime your card is used at a gas station, a department store, or other purchase category.

Review Activity Easily

You can also easily review recent purchases, since your receipts are stored in your phone by date. You can even separate your activity by business and personal records so you can view comprehensive activity for each individually.

Set Location-Based Transaction Limits

MobiMoney also helps keep your account safe by enabling you to set defined locations where your card can be used. If you want to limit activity to your town or a portion of the downtown of your city, you can. You can even link your card to your phone’s GPS to prevent your card number from being used anywhere other than your current location.

Just back from an international trip? You can block international activity with the touch of a button, so those purchases are automatically denied and you receive an alert.

Control Your Kid’s Account Activity

You can choose to set spending limits and product categories. If you have kids and want to lend them your card (or get them a card of their own), MobiMoney helps you ensure they spend within your means.

Better Security Through Mobile Banking

While you may be inclined to worry about the security of mobile banking, MobiMoney significantly increases your control over your card and how it’s used—whether you want to prevent fraud or just check your own impulse purchases.

MobiMoney gives you the power to make sure that any spending on your card fits your guidelines in various categories such as in-store, online, mail order, ATM, and Apple Pay transactions. If you never use certain kinds of transactions, you can add additional security to your account by shutting down those transaction types entirely.

And if your card is lost or stolen, MobiMoney makes it easy to turn it off right from your phone.

Banking, Budgeting and More

The app also provides more than just card controls and low balance alerts. You can also transfer money between accounts using MobiMoney, or use its helpful, easy-to-use tools for weekly and monthly budgeting.

With MobiMoney, you have the power to have consistent control and constant security over your debit card. The app makes it easy to fine tune and monitor your card activity in ways you never could before.

Burling Backs Local Businesses, From Artists to Entrepreneurs

Only five of the 76 banks with a branch or office in Chicago put 100% of their deposits to work in Chicago and invest 85 percent or more of their total money back into the local economy. Burling Bank is one of those banks.

In our latest Burling Real Economy Impact Report produced in collaboration with the local startup Mighty, we dig deeper into these statistics. We show how your choice to bank with Burling creates a real positive impact in Chicago’s economy.

We also look at the human side of these investments through interviews with two local entrepreneurs who bank with Burling: BridgeFT Co-founder and CEO Rasheed Hammouda and AW Studio Owner Amanda Williams. We encourage you to read the full report to learn more about how your money is helping to improve Chicago’s small business and cultural landscape.

Enjoy Better Online and Mobile Banking With Burling Today!

Burling Bank has recently upgraded our online and mobile banking system. Managing your money is now simpler than ever, wherever you are. If you haven’t already, please enroll in the new system. It’s easy: Just download our new online banking app by logging in at www.burlingbank.com, then follow the enrollment instructions.

Mobile banking users can also download the new mobile banking app from the App Store or Google Play. As we shift to the new system, current users will default to a single sign-on entity, with sub-users no longer available. Business users with more robust needs may enroll in our new online business banking platform to control these user preferences and take advantage of several other feature enhancements.

To learn more about the expanded features at your disposal — including Notifi, a real-time alert program that helps you track account activity — we’ve launched a new Resource Center. You’ll find helpful videos there that walk you through all the time-saving and productivity-enhancing features of Burling’s new online banking, mobile banking and bill pay services.

Plus, you can explore the online and mobile banking programs with click-thru demos so you know exactly what to expect before you log into your new account.

Burling Bank Supports the Health of Local Chicago Businesses

The new Burling Real Economy Impact Report shows that your deposits in Burling Bank are an investment in your community.

When you’re a Burling Bank customer, your money doesn’t just sit in a bank. It’s in motion, financing small businesses in your community, as you can see in the new Burling Real Economy Impact Report.

The quarterly report is the result of a partnership between Burling Bank and the women-led startup Mighty based at the University of Chicago Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Each new edition contains data on Burling Bank’s community investments and spotlights specific local businesses we support.

While the big banks in Chicago make just 3% of their total small business loans in Chicago, we provide 93% of our small business loans to local Chicago businesses. Some of these businesses highlighted in our new impact report include:

  • Luxe Property Management LLC, a real estate developer that renovates and retains landmark-quality Chicago properties. The Chicago Reader has called owner Brad Suster the Anti-Demolition Man.
  • Bottom Line Yoga, which offers workday yoga, meditation and corporate wellness classes to Chicago professionals.
  • Wabash Seafood, which distributes quality seafood to top chefs across the city.
  • Logan Arcade, a bar offering Chicago’s best-maintained, largest collection of vintage pinball and video games.

Burling Bank puts your money to work in the community. Our management team and staff are also proud to volunteer their time as members on the boards and committees of several local nonprofits.

When you bank with Burling, you can be confident that your money is invested with people who are truly invested in the Chicago business community.
