FNBO, or First National Bank of Omaha, makes it easy to set up email and text purchase alerts through its website. Unfortunately, like Discover and American Express, FNBO puts arbitrary limits on what can be done through its mobile app. Some types of alerts can be configured in the mobile app, but purchase alerts can only be set up using FNBO's website. Once you get through this initial hassle, though, FNBO's real-time alerts are a useful tool for credit card users.

Do more with purchase alerts from FNBO

FNBO's purchase alerts are useful for catching fraud, but they won't help you keep track of your spending. When you buy something on Amazon, you might want to know how much you've spent there so far this month. Or when you order takeout, you might want to keep tabs on your weekly restaurant spending.

With Latwy, real-time alerts become far more useful and informative. They can be delivered via email, Telegram, Discord, or Slack.
