About Pigly

 

Our Site

Welcome to Pigly, your reliable source for all things related to personal finance. Our calculators make running the numbers fun and simple, aiding you in making smart financial decisions.

Warning!

A 2018 survey by the Federal Reserve indicated 40% of Americans would not be able to cover a $400 emergency with cash, savings, or a credit card they could quickly pay off.

Alarmed by the above, we thought it made sense to create a site to help people solve personal finance issues. One of our most in-depth pieces of content is a feature-rich guide teaching kids how to build an emergency savings fund. This guide offers lesson plans by grade level for making important personal finance decisions throught life.

We are a group of math nerds who are also talented IT and communication professionals who are dedicated to providing consumers a free suite of online calculators to help save you time and money all year long.

A Calculator for Every Need!

We provide a diverse range of helpful tools including savings, mortgage, credit cards, vehicles, loans, debt, budgeting, investing, retirement planning and business.

Our online calculators are reviewed by experts to ensure accuracy and reliability, with periodic updates adding new features based on user feedback. Usage is free without requiring registration. Evergreen guides compliment our calculators. These articles are researched and edited by our in-house team of seasoned senior researchers, writers, editors and designers.

For inquiries regarding any of our calculators or requests for additional ones, please don't hesitate to get in touch by sending an email to moc.ylgip@ofni.

About Our Name

The name was chose because it sounded slightly whimsical while being short, memorable and available in the .com extension for a reasonable price.

The desire for this site is to provide sound financial advice in a way that is practical, helpful and memorable.

This website was launched in September 2019 after the domain name was purchased on GoDaddy Auctions on September 9th for $521. Typically similar names would cost around $5,000 to $20,000 on the secondary market, which is certainly more than we could afford, so finding this name was great luck.

Celebrating Pigly

We offer a diverse collection of calculators and created a diverse range of graphics to celebrate the Pigly ethos. :)

Below are hand-drawn illustrations to represent Pigly's personality.

Sharing is caring! You are welcome to use these hand drawn images on social media or any website you operate, though we ask you please cite the source.

 

Saving Money is No Game!

Some aspects of building a budget and saving for a rainy day can be made to feel like a game, but for most people keeping up with personal finances can be hard work. You never know when a car will break down or when there will be an illness in the family.

We offer a thrifty (free!) online video game where players add coins to a piggy bank. :)

Piggy Bank Adventure.

Going hog wild, we added over a half-dozen other games to our mini pig-themed online arcade.

Is This Website for Sale?

The above contact information is published for members of the media who want to share our site, and people who have interest in giving feedback to help us further improve the website.

We have put a lot of effort into building Pigly and plan on working on improving it further for many years to come as it is just starting to take off after the first year. Each day we keep improving the site further as it grows.

We appreciate the flattering acquisition offers people have made, but we have no interest in selling this site. We are also not looking for investors as we want to maintain full editorial control over our site and do not want to become beholden to any third party.

We are a small team and are an entirely self-funded project, but our goal in the coming years is to build a widely-known website like Credit Karma or Nerd Wallet.
