Gift for Garden State Grads!


I know that many of you know how important managing money is to me. I wish there had been someone to teach me a little bit more about the importance of saving (treat it like a tax – you’d put the money in that account if it was a tax!), and what a difference it can make in our peace of mind.

So with that in mind, I wanted to let you know about something amazing going on at Boiling Springs Savings Bank for Garden State Grads right now! This is so great, and I’m thrilled to see a bank reaching out to students and rewarding them not only for their achievements, but also helping them get off to a healthy financial start.

From May 18 through June 30 (hurry!) Boiling Springs Savings Bank, BSSB, is going to give $20.15 (cute, right? 2015 grads, listen up!) to every student ages 14-23 who opens up a Student Checking Account with $20.15 or more! I love that!

Why on earth are they doing this? Because the BSSB Student Checking Account is a great first checking account for high-school students eager to learn how to manage their money, for students heading off to college, and for recent graduates beginning a new career. It’s a great way for parents to start their kids off right, and teach them independence when it comes to money.

And in addition to the extra $20.15 that BSSB will add to your child’s brand new account, here are some details on the Student Checking Account:

  • No monthly fees
  • Interest earned on all balances
  • Free specialty checks or a discount on custom checks
  • Free online banking
  • Free online bill payment
  • Free 24-hour telephone banking
  • Minimum deposit to open account is $1.00 (no seriously, just one dollar!)
  • Free transactions at Boiling Springs ATMs with Boiling Springs ATM card or Debit MasterCard
  • Direct deposit
  • Overdraft protection transfer service available
  • At age 23, account will convert to a regular NOW account
  • Boiling Springs Savings Bank will make an interest bonus deposit of $20.15 into all Student Checking Accounts opened with $20.15 or more during the promotion period.

I know, you’re ready to run right out now and open up an account for your kids, right? So here’s a list of local locations for you to get started! Just find the location that’s nearest to you, and start the summer of 2015 with an extra $20.15 in their accounts.

In addition, you can check out this short little video from BSSB on the importance of opening up this account for your child. Good luck and I can’t wait to hear how it goes!
