We sure do love our rituals. One of the most basic is the daily ritual of saving change. Sound familiar?

You go about your day, make a few cash transactions, and then get home and dump your pocketful of coins into a change jar. But day after day, week after week, coin by coin, your savings grows. Then one day—three months later, six months, a year—you’re thrilled to discover that your change jar is totally full.

What next? You crack it open, count it up, and then the real fun begins: You get to decide what to do with that money. Anything you want. How thrilling is that? Depending on the size of your jar, you might go to a movie. Or out for a fancy dinner. Or kick it toward an upcoming vacation. Or boost your savings. Or give it away. The options are endless.

So much joy from something so simple. It’s hard to deny it feels good to save effectively.

What’s that, you say? Nobody makes cash transactions anymore, and your piggy bank is sitting on the shelf collecting dust?

We say no problem. Know why? Because of a little something we call Verve Round Up.

That’s right! It’s a digital change jar, and it’s easy to get started.

  1. Contact us to get enrolled in Verve Round Up.
  2. Make transactions with your debit card.
  3. Voila! Your savings grows.

Here’s how:

With every debit card purchase, we’ll round up to the nearest dollar and drop the excess change into a savings account for you.

Emergency run to buy a gallon of 2% milk? No problem. You pay $2.78 with your Verve debit card. Round Up bumps that up to $3.00 and kicks the leftover $0.22 to your savings account. Buy a donut for $1.05? Pay with your Verve debit card, and you’re adding $0.95 to your savings account.

It’s a small contribution, but day by day, week by week, Round Up by Round Up, that total dollar amount adds up.

The numbers don’t lie. In 2023 alone:

Members using Verve Round Up saved more than $1.6 million, with an average individual savings of $185.

Not bad for a digital change jar.
