We suggest apps like Mint or Digit.

Use A Card That Gives You Perks!

Many people are in the habit of only paying with plastic for emergencies or big purchases If you have trouble controlling your spending, that’s ok. But, if you trust yourself, look at it this way: every purchase that isn’t on a rewards card is money left on the table.

Use cards that give you perks. If you have a qualified advantage checking account, you could be earning 1.00% APY* when you swipe your  Advantage Checking Visa Debit Card. These swipes add up, rewarding you for thins you’re doing daily, like buying groceries, gas, clothes, etc.

Swiping your Most Rewards credit card will give you points on your purchases, that you can later redeem for travel, merchandise, or even convert to cash back! Who doesn’t love cash back?

Get Paid for Having an Interest-Bearing Account

When you open an interest-bearing savings account, like a money market account, you don’t have to sacrifice higher earnings for liquidity, meaning your cash is still accessible. At the same time, you earn a higher monthly dividend. If you are ok with tying your money up for a specific period of time consider opening up a certificate of deposit.
