Brex Empower Platform

How do I assign a card to a different budget?

This article references a feature that may be limited to customers on the Empower platform. If you would like to learn more about this feature, have an account or card admin reach out to Brex Support by clicking on Support in the dashboard.

Brex Empower has eliminated the need for each user to have multiple cards. Instead, you have one card that can be associated with any budget. If you have multiple budgets, you can toggle the budget tied to your card so that transactions are instantly spent from the appropriate budget.

Note: Virtual cards created exclusively for a budget are known as budget cards, and will be permanently assigned to its budget. As they cannot be reassigned, all expenses made on a budget card will fall under its assigned budget.

Budget cards are indicated by a white card icon, whereas regular cards have a black or gold icon. Card users can create up to one virtual budget card per budget.

In the dashboard

Step 1: Go to Wallet and find the card you want to assign to a different budget. If it isn’t your primary card, click View all budgets and cards and choose it from the list.

Step 2: Click on Manage next to Selected budget and choose the budget you want to spend from using the dropdown menu.

In the app

Note: Please make sure you’ve updated your Brex app to the latest version.

Step 1a: In Wallet, tap Manage.

Step 1b: If you’d like to switch the budget of a card other than your primary card, scroll down to find the card in the Other cards section. Tap the card you’d like to assign a different budget to, and tap Manage.

Step 2: Tap Select next to the budget you’d like your card to spend from.

Note: You’ll see your Brex card set as the primary card on the Wallet page. If you have more than one Brex card, you can change your primary card by following the steps in How do I switch my primary card?.
