Tuesday, February 25, 2020 | Save with a Plan

Hashtags of the Day: #MySavingsPlan #SaveWithAPlan #ASW2020

It’s not enough to simply set a savings goal. Here’s why – savers who have a plan are twice as likely to save successfully. Today, we encourage Americans to PAUSE and make space for a financial health check-in, and take their savings goal one step further by developing an action plan.

Wednesday, February 26, 2020 | Save for the Unexpected

Hashtags of the Day: #Save4TheUnexpected #ASW2020

America is in a Savings Crisis. We all know the stat – “Forty percent of Americans don’t have access to even $400 cash in the case of an emergency.” Additionally, the average debt in collections is just under $400 – so it’s easy to imagine the impact of more Americans having a $500 emergency fund. Today we will offer tips and solutions to #ThinkLikeASaver and encourage our community to save for the unexpected.

Thursday, February 27, 2020 | Save to Retire

Hashtags of the Day: #Save4Retirement #MySSA #ASW2020

Preparing for retirement can easily be pushed into the “someday” category, as we focus on present needs and expenses. In fact, very few Americans have a plan for retirement savings that is adequate for their desired standard of living after they retire. Today our focus is to encourage Americans to save today for tomorrow, and discover just how much they need to save for their golden years.


Friday, February 28, 2020 | Save by Reducing Debt

Hashtags of the Day: #ReduceDebt2Save #ASW2020

We talk about savings all the time, but here’s something that you don’t hear as often: paying down your debt IS saving! When you actively reduce your debt you save on interest. When you pay on time, you save on late fees and maintain your credit score – which will save money long-term. Today, we’ll encourage our communities to acknowledge and celebrate reducing your debt as a form of saving and a component of your financial plan.

Saturday, February 29, 2020 | Save as a Family

Hashtags of the day: #SaveAsAFamily #ASW2020

The best way to teach great money habits to our children is to model great money habits. While most Americans know the importance of making sound financial decisions, many feel that money management wasn’t taught to them at a young age. Today we’ll encourage our communities to be creative and intentional about finding ways to teach children about money, spending habits, and saving.
