Military Saves Text Messages

Military Saves is excited to announce the launch of our NEW goal-based text message service to Military Savers.  Through these goal-based text messages tips and reminders, individuals will be better encouraged, supported, and motivated to save towards their goal.

To sign up for text messages Take the Military Saves Pledge and complete the form that comes up after you have completed the pledge. 

Our research shows that individuals who receive regular goal-based text message reminders save more money than people who do not. Military Savers who identified a saving goal when they took the Military Saves can sign-up to receive goal-based text messages that will support, encourage, and motivate individuals to save toward their goal.

Top saving goals Military Savers choose:

  1.  Emergency Fund
  2. Retirement
  3. Reducing Debt
  4. Education
  5. General (All other goals)

This initiative is made possible by a generous contribution from Navy Federal Credit Union.

I cannot remember his name but I can remember the 100 savings bonds he had posted to a piece of card board. He gave us a speech on the importance of saving money and how it can change your life.
