Do you have a savings plan for holiday shopping? Are you tired of running up credit card debt every holiday season? There’s no reason to spend months paying down Christmas debt when you can plan and save with a VCNB Christmas Club.
This is an easy way to save money a little at a time throughout the year. Here’s how it works:
- You choose the amount you wish to save.
- We divide that amount by 26 payments and transfer that amount from your checking or savings account into your Christmas Club savings account every two weeks.
- At the end of the Christmas Club term, your savings will be direct deposited in your checking or savings account in mid-October.
It really is as easy as 1-2-3!
We call it a Christmas Club and many customers do use it for Christmas but some use it for other things – for vacation, for big ticket purchases, or even as a way to beef up their emergency fund each year. This is a deposit only account and there is a $20 fee if you choose to close the account early. That means it’s a great way to save money and not touch it until you’ve reached your goal!
Are you ready to get off the holiday debt merry-go-round? Sign up for your Christmas Club today! As a thank you for opening a 2021 VCNB Christmas Club, you will receive a BBQ Gift Bag containing a bottle of Old Canal Smoke House barbeque sauce and a VCNB basting brush. Old Canal Smoke House is a popular Chillicothe based restaurant with a private line of sauce.
