I’ve got another giveaway for you! A $50 SmartyPig gift card! Basically a free $50 to start a savings account on SmartyPig.com.
About SmartyPig: Opening an account on SmartyPig is absolutely FREE. In fact, you can open your account, create a goal, reach your goal, and redeem your goal, and SmartyPig won’t charge you a thing.
SmartyPig savings accounts are held in West Bank (NASDAQ: WTBA) and are FDIC insured, so consumers can be confident their financial information and savings are secure. SmartyPig also utilizes the services of VeriSign, HACKER SAFE and TRUSTe.
SmartyPig is the only banking application that is social. The technology is one-of-a-kind. SmartyPig allows family and friends to help consumers reach their savings goals. This is free to SmartyPig customers, as well.
SmartyPig has been described as “Banking 2.0″ and is a cool way for parents trying to teach their children about good financial habits in a world where the concept of saving up for something before buying it has become foreign.
SmartyPig currently offers the highly competitive interest rate of 3.9% (Annual Percentage Yield)* and will always maintain a competitive interest rate for account holders.
SmartyPig gives consumers even more for their money by offering additional incentive boosts (up to 5%) from best-in-class retailer partners like Best Buy, Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, Sandals and Home Depot when they reach a savings goal.
SmartyPig’s smart, simple and secure approach to savings teaches the benefits of good financial habits, reverses the credit card “buy now, pay later” mentality and makes saving money a fun and easy experience.
In just 10 weeks, SmartyPig has customers in all 50 states and D.C.
SmartyPig was awarded “Best of the Web” by NetBanker.com.
*Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is accurate as of May 28, 2008. Rates may change at any time without prior notice. Fees could reduce earnings on the account. Minimum opening balance is $25.
So… If you want the chance to open a savings account with SmartyPig… Leave a comment here. You have until 11:59pm on Monday June, 30th. I’ll pick someone with a random generator, and send the lucky winner the card that I happen to have in my hot little hands!
