5 Tips To Save This Summer

Tags: Saving

Now that we’ve officially made it to summer (although the weather might not match that yet), PyraMax Bank knows that entertainment spending usually goes up in the warm months in Wisconsin. While you may be tempted to spend money at the various festivals, baseball games, and major events that make Southeastern Wisconsin fun in the summer, there are ways that you can control your spending. Here are five Summer Saving tips that can be beneficial to your bank account:

 

1. Track your spending with Card Valet

Did you know that your PyraMax Bank debit card can be monitored with the Card Valet app? Available for both Apple and Android devices, this app can send a notification to your phone every time that your card is charged. You can also use the app to activate (or deactivate) cards in the event that they go missing in the summer fun.

2. Start a Summer Saving Challenge

Setting a savings goal and sticking to it can often seem intimidating, especially if you’re aiming to save large amounts of cash. However, if you break a large goal down into smaller, more manageable increments, you’re more likely to stick to it. If you need some inspiration, take a look at this board of Summer Saving Challenges that we’ve posted on Pinterest.

3. Utilize Gift Cards and Rewards from uChooseRewards®

If you didn’t already know, your PyraMax Bank debit card is eligible for uChooseRewards®, a rewards program that gives you points just for making transactions. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to register for uChooseRewards®, and you may be eligible to redeem those points for gift cards and rewards that will keep some cash in your pocket.

4. Create Automated Transfers in PyraMax Bank Online Banking

If you utilize Online Banking or Mobile Banking from PyraMax Bank, you can set up a scheduled transfer to a savings account right from the comfort of your computer or our app. By automating your saving, you can establish regular transfers to put some money aside for your savings goals.

5. Use cash only.

If you really struggle with impulse purchases, bringing only cash to events can be a quick way to manage your money. If you only have a set limit of cash available, then you greatly reduce your risk of overspending. If you do bring your debit card, be sure to avoid the ATMs!

 

With these tips, you’ll still be able to enjoy all of the summer fun that Southeastern Wisconsin has to offer, but now you’ll also be able to reach your savings goals at the same time. We hope that you’ll utilize these tips in order to have a fun, yet frugal summer!
