- Sierra Pacific Federal CU
- January 9.2017
Oh, New Year's Resolutions. The promises we love to break. There are plenty of resolution skeptics out there, but here's the deal: People who explicitly make resolutions are 10x more likely to achieve their goals than people who don't. Whether you are a believer or not, Sierra Pacific believes that you can improve your financial situation this year. We beilive in you so much, we are giving away a free dream vacation to a member who takes some smart steps for their future.
You have from now until March 31, 2017, to take the smart financial steps below. For each step you take, you will earn ONE ENTRY into the drawing for our grand prize vacation package.
Earn one entry each for:
1) Opening a Regular Shares Savings Account
You gotta start somewhere, and our competetive rates and high safety rating make Sierra Pacific a better choice than most. Get your friends who are less-than-stellar savers to come open an account with us.
2) Opening a Money Market Account
Everyone needs a rainy-day account for those "Oh shoot" times. You should build up to at least 6-month's expenses. A money market account is a great place to store your emergency fund. It's accessible anytime with no fees, and pays higher interest than most savings accounts. You can set up automatic deposits to make sacking away money easy.
3) Opening an IRA
Saving for retirement is a big, important, confusing task. Here's a basic tip for you: start early, stay consistent. Making frequent deposits to an IRA account, especially while you are young, will make for a nice nest egg when you leave the 9 to 5 behind. You can set up automatic contributions, so you save without even thinking about it.
4) Refinancing you loans or credit cards from another institution
High-interest loans can take a huge chunk out of your savings. See if you can refinance at Sierra Pacific and save yourself some money. You can set up automatic payments here, too, so you'll never have to worry about missing a due date. As if that wasn't enough, we are currently offering 1% cash-back up to $300 when you refinance a vehicle from another institution.
5) Opening a club account
Is your 2017 resolution about traveling the world, experiencing new things? Or maybe you're still feeling the pain of the holidays, and you want to plan ahead better for next year. Try opening a Vacation or Christmas Club Account. You can put away money toward your goal all year, and it will be released just in time to spend on vacation or shopping. Eliminate impulse buys and set up Direct Deposit to make saving a bit each month simple.
We will be posting bonus entry opportunites on Facebook and Twitter, so follow us @SPFCU and keep an eye out!
