Marcus Insights: See Your Expenses by Spending Categories and by Most Frequented Merchants

Share this article

See your spending by category

Discover how you spend across various spending categories including travel, shopping, dining and drinks, and home. First scroll down to tile that shows your spending by category, then toggle between different spending categories by tapping on the arrows. For a more detailed view, tap into the tile. You’ll then be able to see specific transactions and merchants within a spending category. 

See a transaction that looks like it’s in the wrong category? Simply tap on that transaction to update the category. You can also make the transaction a recurring expense, or exclude it from your spending view. You can even re-categorize a specific transaction so that the category applies to future expenses from that merchant (e.g., categorizing all transactions from Amazon as ‘shopping’).

See your spending by your most frequented merchants
