Alright, kids. It’s time to talk money. You seem to be liking and learning from these attempts at financial literary savviness. (Shoot a comment down below if you have any special requests for anything you want to chat about here in the future!) I’m keeping it up with a post that’s (hopefully) relevant to all you ladies out there who care about looking your best but aren’t about to break the bank on beauty products galore. Whether you are (or you’ve got) a recent high school graduate, about to enter post-grad “real world” life, or just now care a heckuvah lot more about your personal finances than ever before, you need a checking and savings account.
So. Before I go into bank-related details on important things that you need in your life right now, there’s one key fact to know: from now until 6/30, if you open a Student Checking Account at a Boiling Springs Savings Bank near you and deposit $20.15 or most, you’ll get a $20.15 interest bonus deposit added to your account. FREE MONEY!!!! Some people might say, “Save up!” “Straight to the savings!” “That’ll be great to help pay off student loans next month!”
Buy the makeup.
…All the makeup.
So that’s what I did. I spend $21.16 for a face’s worth of makeup…meaning that with that $20.15 in play, it was really only $1.01 out of pocket. You know? #math
Now grab your vino and kick up your feet: time for the nitty gritty.
If you’re a student between age 14-23, visit your nearest branch and open a Student Checking Account with $20.15 or more. You’ll get a $20.15 interest bonus deposit from Boiling Springs Savings Bank in addition to the initial deposit as part of BSSBank’s “Gift for Garden State Grads,” from now until June 30th. That’s. Free. Cash. PLUS, Boiling Springs is always giving you:
- 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
- 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
Boom shakalaka. I’m tellin’ you (although you’re all smart and probably don’t need me telling you)…it’s SO important to watch your finances, plan ahead, organize errrr’thing and spend and save smartly. So if you’re new to the personal finance market and want a little extra guidance along the way, be sure to check out Boiling Springs (you can say hey over on Facebook or Twitter) and let me know your answer to this:
What would you do with your extra $20.15?
Tweet me too, because I just have to know I’m not the only one who would buy more makeup. #please
And what are your weekend plans?? I for one cannot decide for the life of me whether or not tonight involves the local theater, Jurassic World, or OITNB. I’ve narrowed it done to Cabernet though (not like that’s a toughie), so at least I’ve got one thing figured out.
