Guess how much is in the piggy bank for a chance to win everything in it!
April is National Credit Union Youth Month™, and to celebrate, we’re giving away 17 piggy banks filled with money! When you visit a Verve branch anytime in April, have your kiddos check out the money-filled piggy bank and enter their best guess for how much is inside. The child to guess the closest to the actual amount will win the piggy bank and all of the money inside. Can’t make it to a branch? Find the contest post on our Facebook page and enter your best guess online. Winners will be contacted by May 1, 2020.
Savings tips and tricks!
Establish regular visits to the credit union.
Fit in a visit to the credit union once a week, once a month or whatever fits your schedule. Don’t forget to bring the piggy bank along! Kids love watching the coins being counted in our self-service coin counter. After you’re done counting, visit a team member to make a deposit and build your savings! Make sure to grab a sucker on your way out.
Set a savings goal for the new toy.
Rather than running to the store and buying the toy your child is begging for, talk to them about how much the toy costs and set up a savings plan. When the day comes to buy the toy, your child will not only learn how to save but will hopefully appreciate the toy that much more too!
Introduce easy budgeting.
If you pay your kiddo allowance, divide each payout three ways: spend, save and give.
- Spend – Your child can choose to spend this money as they choose, such as on toys, books or games.
- Save – Your kiddo will collect this money in a jar or piggy bank and then deposited into their savings account the next time you visit Verve to build their savings.
- Give – Your child will give this money to a group or non-profit he or she would like to help. Once a certain amount is collected, visit the group your kiddo decided to support and brighten someone’s day!
Put savings on auto-drive.
With free automatic transfers, you can conveniently transfer funds to your child’s account with every paycheck!
Save on your time.
By being joint on your child’s savings account you can transfer funds from your account to their account anytime with online banking!
Whether your child just arrived in the world or is getting ready to head to college, if you haven’t established a savings plan for them, this is a great time to start! Even if the savings is just a small amount every week, it will add up over time.
