How Tiller Money is Different
The complete personal finance platform based on spreadsheets
Money in Excel is a single template that doesn’t even include a budgeting sheet. Tiller Money offers several budget and finance templates, plus tools like email alerts and AutoCat.
Only Tiller Money gives you complete control of transaction categories
You can only use 20 custom categories with Money in Excel, along with 18 default categories that can’t be deleted. But Tiller Money gives you complete control, with up to 200 custom categories you can easily edit and delete.
Auto-categorization based on your rules, not Microsoft’s
Your Tiller Money subscription includes Autocat for Google Sheets, a powerful tool for auto-categorizing all your transactions. Even better, Autocat is completely configurable to your rules.
Link multiple spreadsheets and track multiple goals
With Tiller Money you can use multiple spreadsheets, each with its own unique set of linked accounts, for both Google Sheets and Excel.
Simple, flat pricing
Money for Excel is only available with a Microsoft 365 subscription with pricing tiers from $70 to $100. Tiller Money keeps things easy with a flat, all-inclusive $79 annual subscription.
“Tiller Money kept their transactions and category sheets more customizable vs Money in Excel. With Tiller Money, I could filter the transactions sheet which is really useful. Tiller Money offers more flexibility.”
