As part of America Saves Week 2018, scheduled for February 26 to March 3, Jewett City Savings Bank is encouraging people to learn about better savings tactics including enrolling in automatic savings.

This year, the Bank is adding a special element to engage children. During America Saves Week, the Bank’s mascot, Stash McCash, will be hosting the America Saves Week Coloring Sweepstakes for children who are pre-kindergarten age, through fifth grade. A completed coloring sheet may be submitted at any Jewett City Savings Bank branch between February 26, 2018 and March 3, 2018. One winner from each age group will be chosen at random and will receive $25. Visit any Jewett City Savings Bank branch location or our website to get a coloring sheet.

During America Saves Week, Jewett City Savings Bank will offer new savings accounts and waive the minimum balance service fee for six months, giving consumers time to achieve the minimum balance by saving just $8 per week. Those opening a new savings account for a minor will receive a free piggy bank. New accounts can be opened at any Jewett City Savings Bank location.

“Setting a goal, making a plan, and saving automatically is a great way to start. This year we are proud to engage children in America Saves Week because it is never too early to start saving for your future,” said Kevin Merchant, president and CEO of Jewett City Savings Bank.
Initiated in 2007, America Saves Week is organized by America Saves and the America Savings Education Council. The week is an annual opportunity for organizations to promote good savings behavior and a chance for individuals to assess their own saving status.
