It’s summertime and you’re ready for a vacation.

Where will you go?

How will you get there?

And, well, how will you pay for it?

Do you have a vacation fund, some “mad money,” a bonus from work, or maybe just put it on a credit card and pay for it over time.

Or, you COULD borrow some cash from a cartoon bear.

And that’s just what the Dave App wants.

This fintech nonbank that acts a lot like a bank but without all the accountability is ready to lend you some cash.

Want $500 for some summer fun?

Ask and the bear will deliver.

This cartoon bear app is hungry for your cash
