Teach money lessons that last a lifetime.
Now through July 31, open a new youth savings account and we’ll match the first $5.00!4
When you open a youth savings account, you’re giving your child or grandchild a head start in learning to save money and set financial goals—life skills that can benefit them for years to come.
Is your child earning money with summer chores? Now’s a great time to teach them about the importance of saving part of their earnings for the future! You can inspire them by asking what they might like to save for, whether it’s a short-term goal (like a new game for their gaming console) or a long-term goal (a new bike).

It’s never too early for kids to start saving! Just a $5 deposit is all it takes to open a youth savings account in the name of a minor. When you open a share account for your child, their money will grow right along with them. Plus, they will learn how saving money can help them achieve their goals.
Teaching kids about saving is not only a smart choice, it can be a lot of fun too. Our Big Barkers Kidz Club makes saving fun for kids and encourages them to save. When a Kidz Club Share Account is opened, your child will receive a punch card. Each time a deposit is made into your child’s account, they will receive a punch on their card. After 4 punches, they will get a free prize!
