The money-saving function is an alternative for people who want to prevent a certain amount from being available for use. The tool sends the money to a separate wallet from the balance, preventing these amounts from being used for transfers, payment slips or to debit card payments. The money reserved will continue to be the same as the amount available for spending on NuConta.
Step 1. Go to NuConta and tap on the "Save Money" function to access the feature page;
