Round Up Your Change

This Sparked Me!

Every morning I log into my online banking and transfer the change from my checking account into a savings account. e.g. If my account balance is $10.17 I transfer $0.17 into savings. emoticon

    I was just thinking I wish I had one of those Bank of America accounts where they move the extra change from every debit card purchase into your savings account, but small town = no local BoA. I never even would have thought to do it myself, thanks so much for the idea!

    Interesting idea, however for me that won't work because I think I am limited to 6 transfers a month. I could do it weekly I guess and round to the nearest $5. :)

    I love this idea! I have just started saving for the first time in my life and it has become addictive. I am going to do this.
