So, you’ve had a regular savings account for years, and you’ve been pretty good about adding to it and not making withdrawals. But now you want to see your savings grow even more!
By making a commitment to yourself to leave your savings in place for over a year, you could earn 1% or more on your savings! How, you might ask? With a share certificate!
Share certificates (also known as certificates of deposit at banks) are a long-term savings tool. By agreeing to keep your money with a credit union or bank for a pre-determined length of time, you can earn higher returns than with a standard savings account.
Often times, share certificates can be opened with as little as $500, making them the perfect way to kick start your savings journey. If you’ve got a little more saved up and have the flexibility to put your money in a multi-year share certificate, a variable rate share certificate can help you increase your earnings.
So, what are you waiting for? Get started saving today!
