Save More at Tax Time

Tax-time is a great opportunity for those you serve to build up their savings and start a new habit in the new year!  Below are a few options to share where saving a little can add up to a whole lot.  

 

Savers Win

SaverLife is an innovative online savings tool created by the nonprofit organization EARN that helps kickstart the habit of saving. 

Tax Time Weekly Prize Drawings: Pledge online to save at least $50 of your tax refund with a direct deposit into your bank account. Next, sign up for or log in to SaverLife and link the bank account where you’re planning to have your tax refund direct deposited. As soon as your direct deposit shows up in your account, you’ll automatically be entered in weekly drawings for $100 prizes.

$5,000 Grand Prize Story Contest: After you’ve taken the pledge and received a tax refund direct deposit of at least $50 in the bank account you’ve connected to SaverLife, you’re also eligible to enter to win the grand prize. For the $5,000 Grand Prize Story Contest, please submit a picture and caption on the theme “why I saved my tax refund.” This submission form will be available in February 2018.
