Saving, whether big or small, can open up a world of opportunity.
Let’s be honest, saving money is tough, now more so than ever. But saving can be simple, easy and rewarding. It takes just three steps.
Set your goal
Set a target amount that you can save each month for 12 months, whether it’s £5, £20 or £100, it will make a difference! Take stock of what you have coming in and what you spend in a typical month to see how much you can put away comfortably.
Make it a habit
Take it off your to do list by setting up a monthly payment into your savings account. Look into automatic settings and features available online or in-app.
Rewards don’t need to cost a lot, or be complicated, but they are crucial in helping you stay motivated. We’ll be providing monthly tips, as well as free and exclusive lifestyle content from our ambassadors, so that you can make saving a genuinely happy habit.
