Are you prepared for Christmas?

Attention: open in a new window. Print

As we all know, Christmas is a very expensive time of year. Buying presents and holiday expenses are just the beginning.

Members with kids or grandkids will spend more time at home, so we need to keep the kids amused. Going to the movies or a trip to the zoo is an expensive outing these days.

While deposit rates aren’t high at the moment, there is one way to make sure you are prepared for the holiday season. Simply open a Christmas Saver and set up an automatic transfer each pay. You won’t miss the money, but you’ll sure appreciate the extra cash at the end of the year.

Your funds are available from 1 November until 31 January each year, so you won’t be tempted to dip in during the year. So rather than max out your credit card each year, try the First Option Christmas Saver.
