Military bank activities, promotions, incentives and specials for Military Saves Week 2018 (coming soon). If you are a military bank and would like to share how you are participating this year with Military Saves please email Andia.Dinesen@ambahq.org.
The 2018 Military Saves Campaign will get underway during Military Saves Week, February 26 – March 3, 2018. As part of the larger nationwide America Saves Campaign, Military Saves will again be conducted in cooperation with the Consumer Federation of America.
As in prior years, the Military Saves Campaign is a year-long effort for the DoD military community, and the military banks have traditionally played a key role in supporting the Campaign. The result of a successful Campaign is the enhanced financial readiness of military members and their families by reducing debt and fostering a saving culture.
AMBA and its member banks have a record of strong support for the annual Military Saves Campaign since its inception. Many AMBA member banks have developed robust programs for Military Saves Week, and we at AMBA Headquarters encourage the banks to build on past successes and make 2018 even better.
