America Saves Week is about more than helping Americans understand the importance of saving – it’s about getting them to save automatically.
We know that savers with a plan are more than twice as likely to make progress towards their savings goals as those without a plan. That’s why we created the America Saves Pledge. When someone takes the Pledge, they identify a savings goal (such as a rainy day fund or retirement), an amount to save per month, and the number of months they will save that amount. In other words, they make a basic savings plan.
But sometimes it takes more than a nudge to create that plan. That’s why America Saves offers an incentive: the annual #ImSavingForSweepstakes. Savers who create a savings plan and share their goal or savings story on social media have a chance to win up to $750.
How does it work? Simple. For a chance to win $500, savers just need to take the America Saves Pledge. They can boost their potential prize by $250 by sharing their goal, personal story, or favorite savings tip on social media with the hashtag #ImSavingForSweepstakes.
