12 Venmo Transactions That Every College Student Knows All Too Well

Venmo is probably the best thing that ever happened to college students.

You don't have to take $20 out of an ATM every time you owe someone money or want to do something (which is especially annoying if you don't have a bank in your school's area). Venmo is used for a lot of different transactions, but in college there are certain ones that every single one of you has done.

Like these:

1. Alcohol runs

Literally 80% of Venmo transactions.

2. Pizza

Someone has to take the hit for that midnight delivery.

3. Frozen Yogurt

There's always that one friend that goes ham at the self-serve froyo place and doesn't have enough in their account until payday (guilty).

4. Midnight food runs

Gotta get the cash money for those airport rides, am I right?

6. Uber rides

There's a fee to split rides on Uber. When in doubt, Venmo it out.

7. Impulse Amazon Prime order.
