How to Save for a Larger Down Payment for a Car
The larger your down payment, the lower your debt, interest rate, and interest owed. The most effective way to save a larger down payment is to automatically set aside a portion of each paycheck. With direct deposit, your employer can split your paycheck between checking and savings accounts. Or, ask your bank or credit union to regularly transfer a certain amount from your checking account to your savings account. Also, ask your financial institution about other savings products that can help you save more. If you need assistance finding money to save, check out our savings tips and strategies!
