Christmas Savings Account

Christmas Savings Account

Put money aside for that special day

Christmas can be expensive and a stressful time of year, but a little pre-planning can make a huge difference.  We are delighted to be able to offer our members a fantastic opportunity to join our Christmas Savers.

Our Christmas Savers Account is created to help you ring-fence savings and get the costs of Christmas all wrapped up. By opening a Christmas Savings Account, members can focus less on how they are going to pay for all their festive goodies and more on how they’re going to enjoy a debt-free Christmas with the people they love most.

Many people start weekly savings in January each year.  This builds a fund for Christmas spending and eases the burden of this expensive time of year.

You can save as little or as much as you can afford, up to the value of €5,000 for our adult members and €500 for our members up to 16.

Saving €10 every week will give you a fund of €500 for Christmas; €20 per week will give you €1,000 so it all adds up to a great way of preparing for Christmas.
