Your teen could get $25 for making smart, sensible money decisions.
At BECU, we're serious about giving back to the community and instilling smart money habits at an early age.
On Monday, Oct. 8, our employees spent the day at local high schools, teaching teens essential budgeting skills. We do it every year, because we believe a generation of financially savvy young people is a win for the community as a whole.
If you haven't had the chance to have “the money talk” with your teen, our guide can be a great place to start. We know it might not be the easiest conversation to start, but reading the guide can help you show your teen some financial basics, including how to:
As an added bonus throughout November, if your teen completes three purchases with their BECU Debit Mastercard® and logs into their Online or Mobile Banking, they'll get $25 deposited directly into their savings account.* It's a great way to apply these financial concepts and reward your teen for a job well done.
As you introduce more freedoms and establish a savings/spending routine with your teen, remember to take things at your own pace – no two situations will ever be identical.
To qualify for the incentive, your teen will need to set up their own checking account and online banking log in. Help your teen open a teen checking account using this checklist and set up their own Online Banking to track spending and transactions. Your teen will use their online banking log in and password to log into the BECU Mobile App.
Have questions? We can help. Give us a call at 800-233-2328 or stop by a nearby BECU location.
