It may seem like a cliché, but the New Year is a good time to refresh, review and get a handle on your finances. If you’re struggling to break down your finance goals into manageable tasks, join OnPoint’s 52-week money savings challenge. Whether you’re saving for that fun family vacation or trying to pay down credit card debt, the OnPoint 52-week money savings challenge is a great way to help you stay on track!

So, what exactly is the 52-week savings challenge? It is a simple money saving challenge, but it requires discipline. Each week during the challenge, deposit the number of that week into your savings account. For example, during week one deposit $1, week two deposit $2, week five deposit $5, etc. If you feel the challenge is too simple to start off, try the challenge in reverse, starting with a deposit of $52 during week one, $51 during week two, etc. Whichever method you choose, at the end of the year you will have saved over $1,300.

Need a little extra motivation to get started? Each month during the challenge we will give away a $100 OnPoint Visa gift card. Here’s a recap of what our latest challenge winners are saving for:

·         September 2016: Rick McClatchey is saving for a vacation.
