Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just have all sorts of disposable income to buy all of our favorite must have essentials? Surely it would but that’s just not how life goes. Starting in college, and for many years since, I have come up with some tips and tricks on how to save on your favorite must have essentials. Are you a student? This is definitely for you. Boiling Springs Savings Bank has a Student Checking Account that you need to hear all about.
1 || OPEN A CHECKING ACCOUNT – This was one of the best things I did in college. It allowed me to put some money aside and save it up for when I wanted to splurge on some of my must have essentials. With Boiling Springs Savings Bank, when a student age 14-23 visits his/her nearest branch and opens a Student Checking Account with $20.15 or more, he/she will receive a $20.15 interest bonus deposit from Boiling Springs Savings Bank in addition to the initial deposit. Awesome, yes? So you’re getting money just for opening it up. That can totally go towards your must have essentials.
2 || DOWNLOAD ALL THE APPS – Grab an app for your favorite stores or any of your loyal membership programs. There are so many ways that these loyalty programs can get you extra savings or free gifts. Score.
3 || BUDGET – Sit down and make a budget. This will save you you so much money if you know exactly where every bit of your money is going. If you’ve yet to learn how to balance a checkbook, get on it. Ask your parents or friend to help. You should definitely know how to manage your money as early as high school or even up to college grads starting a new career. This is such an important skill to have. Saving money is easy and important with Boiling Springs Savings Bank, it’s a bonus just to sign up with the Gift for Garden State Grads program.
4 || COUPONS – I think this one is pretty self explanatory, no? Coupons, clip them. Clip them all and save big. I love me some coupons.
5 || SWAP – Check with your friends. Do they have something you want and they’re not a fan? Check with them to see if they are eyeing anything you have and do a swap. It’s super fun, I promise.
So now that you’re armed with these ways to save. Don’t forget to stop by your nearest Boiling Springs Savings Bank and sign up for a student checking account. I took my niece to the Montville location, she’s entering high school and I thought it would be the perfect time to get her set up with an account. It was an awesome experience and we made a whole day out of it and I told for the next six months my husband and I will match whatever she manages to save up so it was awesome for her too. Don’t forget you can get a $20.15 interest bonus deposit from Boiling Springs Savings Bank in addition to all initial deposits totaling more than $20.15.
