February 24th to March 1st is America Saves Week, “an annual opportunity for organizations to promote good savings behavior and a chance for individuals to assess their own saving status.” On Friday, February 28th, various organizations including America Saves, Bankrate.com, and Experian will be participating in a Twitter chat specifically for students. Covenant Trust Company will be sharing some #StudentsSave ideas, too!
Students (and anyone else interested in saving money!) are encouraged to follow #StudentsSave on Twitter throughout the day on Friday. You’ll find tips and resources for improving your savings habits and will have the opportunity to contribute your own ideas.
