Pathfinder Youth Savings
At Valley Savings Bank, we believe in encouraging young people to save. That’s why we offer a special savings account just for children. We call it our Pathfinder Youth Savings Account and we invite youngsters of all ages to participate.
Opening a Pathfinder Youth Savings Account is so easy . . . all you need is $10! Of course, it’s even better if you have more money to put into your account. The more you save, the more you earn and the faster your account grows because your money earns a competitive interest rate, with earnings compounded quarterly. Another good thing? There are never any service fees on a Valley Savings Bank Pathfinder Youth Savings Account.
We think you and your family will agree. Opening a Valley Savings Bank Pathfinder Savings Account is a cool – and very smart – thing to do!
Here are some thoughts to keep in mind as you begin saving:
- Every time you earn money or receive money as a gift, deposit all or a
portion of it in your Pathfinder Savings Account. The more money you save,
the more money you earn and the faster your account grows!
- If you have something special you are saving for – like a new video game,
a special outfit, a school trip, a car or college – write your goal on a piece
of paper and hang it somewhere in your room. This note will serve as a
constant reminder of why you are saving!
- When it comes time to make a purchase, be a thrifty and educated
buyer. Shop around and watch for special offers to make sure you find
the best price.
- Track your spending habits by writing down everything you buy and the
cost of each purchase. This is a great way to see where your money goes!
You may find you are able to save more money – and reach your goal
more quickly – simply by cutting out some unnecessary purchases like gum,
soda pop and fast food!
Saving money is a lifelong practice. Visit Valley Savings Bank and we’ll help you get started!
