Find a cheaper savings account

Getting the most out of your cash is difficult when you’re being charged for having any at all.

SaveBetter — a digital marketplace offering competitive savings products all in one place — helps you unlock the growth potential of your cash savings.

You can use SaveBetter to open up an American First Credit Union money market deposit account (MMDA) with no fees and an APY of 4.30% — that’s 10.7x higher than the national average APY.

An MMDA is a great way to securely store your savings, all while earning you more than a traditional savings account and offering a bit more liquidity should you need to withdraw your cash.

Open up an account today and give your savings a chance to grow.

Make your money work for you

Believe it or not, there are banking options available that will actually make you money in the long run, rather than discreetly deplete your balance.

Acorns is an online platform that automatically saves and invests for you. Acorns will invest your spare change from purchases you make, and even a piece of your paycheck, automatically — you don’t even have to click a button.

Fees for your account are low and transparent, starting as low as $3 per month so you can focus your funds on making investments instead.

Opening an Acorns account takes under three minutes, and once you make your first investment, you’ll get an extra $10 in the bank with this exclusive offer.

Save on your insurance premium

Sometimes banking fees are unavoidable. But there are other areas of your finances where you can avoid paying too much.
