Bundle Tells You What Others Are Spending in Your Area

See How Others Are Spending Their Money With Bundle

I get the appeal of Bundle — to see how people in your area are spending their money — but I also get a little creeped out by it. Bundle uses Citi credit card data (and other third-party hunter-gatherers) to amass info on what people are buying, so you can see trends and find out if you're going over the average on your monthly spending bills. This could be helpful to curb your outrageous gadget-buying habits (say, if you're spending hundreds more than peeps in your 'hood), but also seems kinda weird that you can drill down the data to see where people are buying these gadgets. It's a love/hate thing for me, but what do you think — helpful info, or invasion of privacy?

Definitely creepy stalkery. We already have enough Big Brother in our lives...besides, did these users all consent to have their information used? I think a better option would be for users to fill in information themselves. It might alter accuracy, but at least it would be information given willingly.

I don't like this at all. Creepy.
