Drawings to Reward Savings

Get rewarded for saving using a new program to incentivize the positive steps Bank On participants are taking to grow their savings. 

Save Up offers daily drawings for savers.  The way it works is retailers offer prizes for the drawings.  Some are big prizes like a $2 Million drawing and others are smaller weekly prizes like a $100 gift card. 

Signing up is free.  You get points you can use to buy more chances to win prizes for every $1 you add to your savings.  You were saving anyway to help you reach your goals.  Save Up makes saving more fun.  Check it out at www.saveup.com
