NEWARK, Del.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/AmericaSavesWeek?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#AmericaSavesWeeklt;/agt;–As families start to soak up the sunshine and make plans to rejuvenate
their garden beds, the spring season is also a good time to breathe new
life into your savings. Sallie Mae, the nation’s saving, planning, and
paying for college company, is reminding families that there is still
time to win $500 toward any savings goal this ‘America Saves Week’
through SmartyPig’s America
Saves Week Sweepstakes.
To help kick off its sweepstakes, SmartyPig, Sallie Mae’s online,
goal-based, high-yield savings account will raise its savings rates to 1.80
percent annual percentage yield (APY). Individuals who open a new
SmartyPig account and set up a recurring deposit into a new goal, or
current SmartyPig customers who set up a new recurring deposit into any
goal, during “America Saves Week” (Feb. 25 – March 2) are entered
automatically to win.
“The annual ritual of spring cleaning isn’t just for cluttered closets
and gardens; it’s also an opportunity for people to organize their
savings and establish healthy financial habits,” said Martha Holler,
senior vice president, Sallie Mae. “It all starts with a plan, and
‘America Saves Week’ is a great opportunity to learn about tools,
resources, and services like SmartyPig that can help people get on the
right track toward meeting their savings goals.”
America Saves and the American Savings Education Council coordinate
“America Saves Week” as an annual opportunity to encourage individuals
to assess their own saving status and persuade more people to set a
goal, make a plan, and save automatically. Created in 2008, SmartyPig
can help individuals do just that.
