Saving for a goal
Small, regular automatic deposits also have the power to help you save over time. We have banking ideas that can really help, save automatically with St.George SENSE, where many card purchases are rounded up to the nearest dollar and the rounded amount is deposited into your SENSE Savings account. Try Term Deposits to invest your money so you don't spend it, a competitive interest online accounts with an Automatic Savings Plan, or a savings account that rewards you with bonus interest every month you make at least 1 deposit and no withdrawals. If you're ready to start saving, we can make it easy.
Setting a goal and having a savings plan is easier than it seems. Try these basic ideas to get motivated and stay on track:
Identify your goal and make a savings plan. Our budget planner calculator will show you how much you can save each week. Consider linking a high interest savings account to your transaction account and set up automatic deposits.
Write down your goal or make it visual. Set an image of your dream holiday destination as your computer screensaver, or post up a reminder that says, "I will save $100 a week".
Know yourself and your motivations. Some people can stay on track by checking account balances and watching their savings grow. Others really need a reward – if they save $50 a week for a month, for example, then they've earned a treat like dinner with friends.
