How it Works: QuickSave
Saving for the future is important but we know it's not easy — especially when you go it alone. Now you have a partner to help you, Bank of Albuquerque. QuickSave is a tool that allows you to automatically put a set amount into your savings account every time you use your debit card to make a qualifying purchase. And, we'll match a portion of those savings!
When you set up your QuickSave account, you'll determine how much you'd like to save with each transaction, either $0.25 or $0.50, and we'll link everything to your Bank of Albuquerque savings or money market account. Each night, we'll take the number of debit card and Online Bill Pay transactions, multiply the total by your QuickSave(SM) amount, the $0.50 or $0.25, and then transfer that amount to your savings or money market account in one transfer. Each year, we'll automatically transfer our match amount within 6-8 weeks after the anniversary date of your account. After you've enrolled, you can see the transfer activity in both your checking account and savings account.
The sky's the limit for how much you can save using QuickSave, and Bank of Albuquerque will match up to $250 of those savings each year. To calculate how much you might save this year, try using our calculator.
Just tell us the amount you want to transfer to your savings account with each transaction and we'll do the rest. Stop by one of our convenient banking centers or call an ExpressBanker at (800) 583-0709 to get started today!Contact Us
