The holidays can be a great opportunity to teach children valuable lessons about money. Many family members give cash or checks during the holiday season. Encourage your child to save their monetary gifts with the SLFCU Savings Laboratory®.
Kids 12 and under can learn about setting and reaching savings goals when they deposit money into their primary SLFCU savings account. Each deposit of $5 or more earns a sticker that can be exchanged for cool prizes later. Request a Savings Laboratory notebook when making the first deposit and start collecting stickers (limit one per day). Kids can watch their savings grow as they work toward filling their Savings Laboratory notebook.
After collecting 10 stickers, kids can choose to redeem their notebook for one of the following prizes:
- A $10 gift card to Barnes & Noble
- A $10 gift card to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science
Or kids can wait, collect 20 stickers, and redeem them for one of these bigger prizes:
- Two Regal movie tickets
- A $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble
Speak with an SLFCU Financial Services Representative to open a primary savings account for your child and request a Savings Laboratory notebook.
