Keep in mind that this percentage is an estimate, not a guarantee. Ramp delivers savings from more than just card spending; savings can also come from non-card expenses so we may factor decreases to non-card spending into our calculation. For example, savings may result from reduced time spent on manual expense tracking, the financial benefit of cash back or other rewards, smarter expense monitoring, and eliminating costs associated with alternative solutions. Our calculations are based on platform data, industry research, customer surveys, and info on alternative options. Your actual savings may vary.
