Who are BUILD & SAVE Accounts designed for?

Build Credit & Targeted Savings

Build & Save accounts are designed for consumers that want to grow a target amount of savings in a specific timeframe. With Build & Save you can build:

  • $1,000 of savings in 12 months, or
  • $1,000 or $2,000 of savings just in 24 months

Consider Your Goals

When selecting your account type, you should consider how important the savings element is to your goals. While Build & Save accounts accelerate your savings progress because of their shorter term, the shorter term may not positively affect your ‘Length of Credit History’ as much as other Credit Strong accounts. Length of Credit History impacts 15% of your FICO® Score.

Example: Depending on your objectives, you may be better off with a Subscribe account and keeping it open for five years vs getting five 12 month Build & Save accounts in a row.

Balanced Credit Building and Savings

Build your nest egg quickly while you build credit. While all Credit Strong accounts help grow savings each month, Build & Save accounts have shorter terms, so more of each payment goes towards your savings progress.

Decreasing Cost – Increasing Savings

With Build & Save accounts, every month your interest cost goes down and your savings progress accelerates.
