America Saves Week (February 21 - 25, 2022) is an annual opportunity for individuals to assess their savings and take financial action. Each day of American Saves Week highlights a theme that offers ideas to increase your savings.

Daily Themes

  • Monday, February 21 - Save Automatically
    The easiest way to save? Automatically! It doesn’t matter how much or what you are saving for, when you make the smart decision to have a portion of your income automatically deposited into a savings account, you have increased your chance for success.

  • Tuesday, February 22 - Save for the Unexpected
    This past year has taught us that we have to be as prepared as possible for the unexpected. While we all have future savings goals, having an emergency fund to support present unaccounted for needs, like a car breakdown, dental bill or even a last-minute fun treat should be a top priority.

  • Wednesday, February 23 - Save for Retirement
    It is never too soon to prepare for retirement. The earlier you start to prepare, the easier it is to save.

  • Thursday, February 24 - Save to Reduce Debt
    Paying down debt is a way to save. Actively reducing your debt means you are saving on interest, avoiding late fees and maintaining or increasing your credit score.

  • Friday, February 25 - Save as a Family
    Be intentional about teaching good money and savings habits to family members. Focus on the tangible and intangible ways we can positively model and influence children and teens when it comes to money, spending habits and saving.
