SmartyPig Is A Simple, Smart, Social Savings

What Company Is Offering:
SmartyPig is a simple, smart, fun way to save for a specific goal. SmartyPig allows you to invite family and friends to contribute to your account, gives you additional incentive boosts from top retailers who sell exactly what you’re saving for AND *4.30% (APY) interest on the money you’re saving. Simple, Smart, Savings. SmartyPig!

How It Works:

With just a few clicks, your account can be up and running, with you on the fast track toward realizing the goals you’ve set for yourself. How simple is it? This simple:1. Create Your Profile

Just the facts: Some information about you, and some about your bank for your FDIC-insured accounts. Safe, secure, and as easy as 1-2-3.

2. Establish a Savings Account & Goal

Now the fun part. Tell us what you want. A new kitchen, a dream vacation, holiday gifts without the hassle of debt? It can be virtually anything.
3. Meeting Your Goal

How much do you want to save? When do you need it? Just give us the particulars and we’ll suggest a monthly contribution that will be automatically deducted from your existing checking account or other designated funding source.
4. Friends and Family Can Help!

Let your friends and family help you save by making your account Public — or don’t, by keeping it Private. You decide. SmartyPig gives you the option to reach your savings goal faster than you could ever imagine by inviting your family and friends to help you save, all while keeping your personal information safe and secure. Birthdays, holidays, graduation? Forget the stuff you don’t want. Tell them to log onto and help you reach your goal. You can even grab the SmartyPig widget off your Account page and place it on your MySpace or Facebook page to give the whole world the opportunity to help you reach your savings goal.

5. Start Saving

Their bank’s computer talks to your computer and then your bank’s computer and suddenly… Voila! You’re safely and securely on the road to reaching the goals you sensibly set for yourself. We’ll also help you along with monthly e-mails (and e-mails when friends and family members chip in) showing you where you stand and encouraging you to keep up the good work.
