Make Saving Automatic with ChangeSaver™
Save While You Spend With Your Bell Bank Debit Card
Sign up for our FREE ChangeSaver™ program to grow your savings the fast, easy way! With ChangeSaver, you can “round up” your debit card purchases – and watch the difference automatically transfer into your savings.
Choose ChangeSaver, and every bag of groceries, cup of coffee and tank of gas purchased with your Bell Bank debit card automatically adds up to more savings for you. The more you use your debit card to make everyday purchases, the more you’ll save.
Plus, Bell Bank will help you increase your savings by matching 5% of your total savings round-ups – up to $250 a year!*
How ChangeSaver Works
When you sign up for ChangeSaver, you can choose from 3 round-up options, including:
- Round up to the nearest dollar
- Round up your purchase by $1
- Round up your purchase by $2
Note: In personal online banking, you would see 2 charges (or debits) to your checking account – for example: $11.57 for the initial purchase and $0.43 for your savings round up. Then, in your savings account, you would see a $0.43 deposit (or credit).
