Checkmate was built by a group of engineers from Apple, Amazon, Atlassian and Google who share a common obsession with savings and a belief that online savings extensions could be done better.
We all noticed that our favorite savings apps weren't saving us as much as they used to and decided to investigate why this could be. This lead to a year long journey exploring the problem. Checkmate was born and the product was launched in the Autumn of 2021.
Checkmate is a product of Checkmate Savings Inc., a registered corporation in the USA based in San Francisco. We have verified email partnerships with Google and Microsoft.
It started as a hobby project and then we all got obsessed with it and just kept on building. The goal is to make the greatest savings tool ever built.
