Will you accept the challenge to save $50 more this July?

Maybe it's the sunshine getting to us, or our eagerness as we count down the days to those vacations we've been saving for all year, but at America Saves we are so excited about summer that we had to plan something special. So, every month this summer, we are holding a new savings challenge.  

#ImSavingFor graphic featuring savings goal icons: sold home sign, dog, and laptopIn July, we challenge you to save $50 more than your usual savings goal. And we will match that savings for two individuals. Read on to find out more.

If you don’t yet have a monthly savings goal, this is the perfect opportunity for you to make a plan. Those with a savings plan are twice as likely to save successfully, so it’s an important first step in reaching your goals.

The America Saves pledge is designed to help you save money and reduce debt by thinking through your goals, and how much you want to save. Whether you are saving for a summer vacation, next semester’s tuition, or your retirement, our pledge can help you get there. And you’ll officially be part of the $50 savings challenge! Click here to take the pledge.

We can’t wait to hear how you reach your July savings goal, and save an additional $50 on top of it. So we're asking you to share your progress with us on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #ImSavingFor. We can’t wait to hear when you've completed the $50 savings challenge.

At the end of the July, we'll randomly select two America savers (you’re only eligible if you take the pledge) who complete our follow-up email survey to double the savings with $50. But remember, you only receive the survey and are eligible to win once you’ve taken the pledge to save money, reduce debt, and build wealth over time
