With First Bank’s Plinqit app, all you need to do is create your Christmas savings goal, set $650 (or whatever you normally spend) and let Plinqit take care of the rest. For example, if you set Plinqit up early in July for the 2021 holidays, then it would automatically deduct $26 from the checking account you’ve assigned each week for 25 weeks and deposit it into a secure, FDIC-insured First Bank account. By mid-December, you’d have the $650 you need. It’s that easy!

Simply check the app periodically to see how your money is growing. Plus, you can even add to your savings goal by taking some time to educate yourself on various financial education topics. Each time you complete one of the financial quizzes, refer-a-friend to Plinqit, or stick to your completed savings goal, you have an opportunity to earn even more to add to your savings. Now, that makes saving fun!

With Plinqit, saving for the holidays early is the merriest way to save. Happy holidays (in July!) from First Bank. Click here, to get started saving with Plinqit.
