We Started With Savings

“We were young and needed to fix our credit score, so we came in and opened a savings account. We wanted to try it out and make sure we liked it here. After about six months we were ready for a checking account and even debit cards. We were truly amazed that Peninsula was willing to help us. ”

It Pays to Save

“Save to win is a really cool tool to use. I’ve had one for a couple years now, and I’ve won the cash prizes twice. But the best part is at the end of the contest, win or lose I still feel like a winner because I have a larger savings account than when I started. It pays to save!”

Helpful Details

Save to Win

Save to Win is a special savings account that gives you all the benefits of a savings account plus a chance to win big. When you open a 12-month Save to Win Share Certificate account, you make a $25 deposit. That’s your first step towards saving and your first entry into upcoming monthly, quarterly and annual prize drawings.

Each $25 deposit you make earns you an entry into the upcoming drawings. The more you save, the more chances you earn—up to 10 entries per month. Not only will you build your savings and earn interest, you can win multiple prizes throughout the year.

WHAT CAN I WIN?

The best prize is the savings you build by making regular deposits every month. But to sweeten the deal, we award monthly, quarterly and annual prizes up to $1,000 throughout the year.

Scottie Savers Club

It’s never too early to start teaching kids about financial responsibility. We created this unique program to help teach the value of saving… the fun way! Throughout the year, Scottie Savers can earn Scottie Bucks for making monthly deposits, on their birthdays, and more. Kids can trade in their Scottie Bucks for fun prizes, like coloring books, notepads, and frisbees.
