What kind of saver is your child? One who saves happily, or with a scowl? To find out, watch the video below and then stop by a SouthPoint branch this April during National Credit Union Youth Month.
The power of saving
Every saver is unique, but most people who save regularly developed the habit early in life. Learning to delay gratification in order to save for long-term goals is a crucial life skill, and one SouthPoint is committed to helping our youngest members develop.
That’s why we create programs and services designed specifically for young people. One of those is our Youth Month programming. Every member under the age of 18 who makes a deposit during the month of April will be entered into the National Youth Savings Challenge. The Credit Union National Association will select one credit union where a lucky winner will receive $1,000!
We also have savings programs developed just for youth. Check out our EzStart and Ez$ savings accounts that allow you to earn a higher interest rate than a regular savings on amounts up to $5,000. Youth can also bring in their report cards and we’ll pay them for every “A” they receive through our Dollars for A’s program.
By helping your child give a hoot about saving now, you’ll help them soar when they’re older.
