The Power To Save Money Is In Us All

Saving money, improving your financial life, building wealth. It all starts when you set a goal and make a plan to reach that goal. So what is your goal? Set up an emergency cash fund? Get out of debt? Make a down payment on a car or home? Sock away money for college or retirement?

Military Saves can help you develop your goals and take action. We provide savings guidance, tools, resources and plenty of motivation. When you take the Military Saves Pledge, you'll receive the following benefits:



  • Monthly Military Saves E-newsletter with savings advice from national experts

  • Connect with Military Saves on Facebook and Twitter

Getting Started

When it comes to saving money, the sooner you start, the better. It's not an act that's accomplished overnight, but a process that happens gradually and grows over time. Just remember, Start Small, Think Big.

Making ends meet can be a challenge. And in today's tough economy, you may wonder how it's possible to spare anything. But any amount saved - a quarter, a dollar - is progress. Those quarters and dollars add up. As you get into the habit of routinely "paying into your savings" you'll see the money you're setting aside grow.
