VyStar Kids Club

VyStar Credit Union just started a Kids Club to promote kids to save.  When you open a Kids Club interest bearing savings account they give the kids a book mark, place mat, ID card, a deposit booklet, three compartment bank, two tickets to Marineland, choice for a mailed statement or e-statement that the kids can access and the kids have access to the coin counting machine. 
 We found out about this on Saturday and we thought it was a great idea for The Cisco Kid to join. When we got home The Cisco Kid gathered up all his change and put it in his Fireman boot ready for deposit.

Yesterday when the Cisco Kid got out of vacation bible school we went to the bank to open a Kids Club Accounts. He had so much fun through the whole process. He acted like an adult. The Account representatives only wanted his birth certificate and SS card from me. Everything else she spoke directly to him. Asking him for his address, phone numbers, and then his favorite part was signing his name on the pad for signature conformation. Once he was done with all the paperwork, he took his fireman boot over to the coin counting machine and poured it in. He watched the machine tally his change and it gave him a receipt. He then took the receipt over to the Teller so she could deposit it into his new savings account.

We are waiting for the account representative.
The three compartment bank.  One compartment is for Sharing. The other compartment is for saving. The last compartment is for spending. 
The machine that counts change. 
He thought is was so cool to dump it all in the machine. 
       This is one of those life lessons. Hopefully he will grow up with a good sense of saving is better than spending.



  1. I love this idea! I think my kids would enjoy this too, and the 3 compartment bank is a great way to show the kids the various ways you can put you money to use. Thank for sharing the promotion. We will probably do it too.

  2. P.S. TCK looks so cute holding his boot full of money! :)

  3. This is a fantastic opportunity for kids. Love the photos you took of this event. How cute.
