Top 5 Ways to Save in 2013

by Robertson, Lindsey

Holidays leaving your wallet feeling a little empty? We've got some great ideas to help you save for 2013!

Open a Members Choice Savings account with direct deposit. You can set up an automatic transfer within online banking so that each time your paycheck comes in a set amount is automatically placed in this special account. When the account matures you'll have a nifty sum saved up for the 2013 holiday season!

Refinance your home or car. Mortgage and car loan rates are lower now than several years ago. Knocking 1% off your interest rates could save you hundreds of dollars over the term of your loan.

Create a budget. Check out The Hub within Financial Center's online banking. This free service allows you to view all of your accounts (not just those with Financial Center) at a quick glance as well as create and track budget and savings goals.

Don't be a penny pincher! Bring your spare change into any Center location and allow our coin counting machines to sort and count it for you. Add the funds into your savings account and watch your change add up to your next vacation!

Review your insurance. Review your auto, home, and life insurance selections to ensure you have adequate coverage. If you haven't done so in a while, compare costs of several insurance companies to make sure you're getting the best deal. Don't forget to check out what Financial Center's insurance team can do for you!
