Personal Savings Account

You've heard it a million times:
You need to start saving money.

And, well, it’s true. For so many reasons: an emergency fund, financial goals, retirement and a bunch more. But saving money is just plain hard. Even eeking out a few dollars each week can be a stretch. But at Alabama ONE, our goal is to help you achieve financial wellness, and that means helping you save money.

So, we give you options. Choices. Possibilities. Multiple ways to help you start saving and stick to it. Ways to help you earn more on your savings and work toward your goals. Because saving money is the foundation of your financial life, and we want to help you build a rock-solid one.

Membership Savings Accounts

Savings accounts don’t get much more basic than this. But, just because it’s basic doesn’t mean it’s not important, and that’s why every Alabama ONE member has a membership savings account. That’s how serious we are about helping you save.

Money Market Account

The magical thing about having savings is not only does it give you some breathing room financially, but you can also use your savings to earn more money. And a Money Market account is where that happens. You earn a higher rate than with a basic savings account, but you still — and this is key — have easy access to your funds when you need them.

An easier way to save

Saver's Club

A Saver’s Club account is an easy way to save. This account is a separate savings account that allows you to save for your special expenses by making deposits by payroll deduction, in person at any teller window or by automatic transfer. The balance of your account will be transferred to your Prime Share or any designated account at the time you specify each year; just in time for a major project you have been wanting to work, remodel, or just have as a savings goal for yourself.

Christmas Club

Yes, Christmas Club accounts are still a thing. Why? Because they work. Even if you’re just able to put $10 or $20 a month into your account, you’ll have a nice little bonus you can use at the end of the year to help make the season bright.

And we make it super easy to get money in your account each month: We can deduct a set amount from your payroll direct deposit each pay period, you can make deposits in person or you can transfer funds from your checking account with the mobile app or online banking.
