How to Save Money

Setting yourself up for financial success is as easy as opening a savings account. The trick is to commit to putting a portion of your income in your savings account every payday. Securing a high-yield savings account is an effective way to prepare for emergencies and major life events, such as buying your first home or a new car.

Great savings accounts offer liquidity to access money whenever you need it. Savings accounts also provide the security of the FDIC insuring your funds up to $250,000. Leading financial institutions typically offer additional perks and low fees at terms that meet your savings level.
