Spruce brings a new look to local H&R Block offices

H&R Block is showing up in exciting new ways in communities across the country

Many people will be sporting new looks for Halloween, but some H&R Block offices are dressed up for a different reason. Roughly 50 tax offices across the country have been temporarily wrapped with information about a new mobile banking app, Spruce.

Spruce℠ is a financial technology platform built by H&R Block, which is not a bank. Banking products provided by Pathward, N.A., Member FDIC.

Downtown Kansas City H&R Block office showcases Spruce mobile banking product and highlights core features.

The new look features a quick overview of the product for anyone who has ever wondered “what exactly is Spruce?” Beyond this catchy new office design, Spruce is truly rooted in financial equity, driving towards the goal of helping people be good with money. A Midwest based mom of three, Liz Rotz, has been using Spruce as a valuable tool for money management. From cash-back rewards and credit score monitoring to saving for trips and large purchases, Liz has expressed many benefits from using Spruce as a tool in her family’s financial toolbox.
