Feeling blue the past few days? Well you don’t have to any longer, and you will never again have to say the old cliché, “Rainy days and Mondays always get me down.” Well Mondays, I can’t help you with that – but “Rainy Days,” keep reading…
A few years ago, I was introduced to the Rainy Day account that Truliant offers their member-owners with checking accounts. At the end of the business day, Truliant simply takes all of your change (to the right of the decimal) in your checking account and transfers it to your Rainy Dayaccount. This is a case where your pennies actually add up to $$$$.
The Rainy Day account earns dividends equal to the money market account and you can change the name of the account to whatever you like. There is a minimum opening deposit of 25 cents. And as always, Truliant representatives are happy and more than willing to answer any questions you may have about the Rainy Day account.
It is amazing how at first, you don’t miss the change (just remember to always balance your account to the dollar in your registry) and second, how quickly the change adds up. I’ve found that it has become a nice nest egg to use just in time for holiday shopping, a trip, etc…! It’s such an awesome feeling knowing that I have options – and maxing out my credit card doesn’t have to be one of them!
Thanks Truliant for giving new meaning to “Rainy Days” and taking a little bit of the financial stress out of saving!
