It’s America Saves Week! Each year we take this week to do a financial check-in with our members and focus on the importance of saving.
Today’s focus is “Save for the Unexpected."
Imagine that tomorrow you walk out to your car, and all four tires need to be replaced. Or better yet, you wake up to the news your favorite musician is going on tour, and tickets go on sale right now!
If you have a savings account with at least $400 accessible, not only will the "unexpected" be a minor inconvenience (or a mad dash to grab those concert tickets), but you will have more savings than approximately 60% of Americans.
Today during America Saves Week, we are focusing on saving for the unexpected.
Don't have an emergency fund or looking to grow your emergency fund? Take the America Saves Pledge and commit to successfully building an emergency fund of just $500. Embrace the "Start Small and Save Big" mentality.
Today we encourage you to take the America Saves Pledge. Once you do, you’ll not only receive support, reminders, and tips from America Saves; you’ll be entered to win up to $750 in the #ImSavingFor Sweepstakes! (See official rules: http://bit.ly/387q4kt)
