What are spend alerts?

With proactive, intelligent spend alerts, Brex automatically detects unusual spending to help you stay on top of your company’s expenses. We'll alert you about unusual spend, like duplicate subscriptions, price increases, and employee charges that are higher than normal.

Accessing and responding to spend alerts

Spend alerts are enabled automatically for all admins on your account.

By navigating to Expenses in your dashboard, and then clicking Company expenses, you’ll be able to see all transactions that Brex has flagged as possibly concerning. These include:

  • Unusual expenses

  • Higher than usual spend

  • Duplicate transactions or subscriptions

  • Subscription price increases

  • High expenses

  • New vendor expenses

You can mark the alert as reviewed, mute the alert, or follow up with the user by expanding one of these sections and either selecting a transaction individually or using the bulk selection tool. Our tooltips throughout this process will help guide you.

If you reviewed an alert accidentally, navigate to the Archive tab and undo the review.

How to turn off spend alerts

You can configure and turn off the spend alerts feature by clicking Create policy or Manage policy at the top right of the Expenses page.
