How Educators Can Help You Save for Next Year’s Oscars

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sit among the stars at the Oscars? With the help of Educators and our nifty savings tips and tools, your dream could become a reality!

So many of our products can get you started to save for your trip, like our ‘Special Savings’ Shares, automatic withdrawals, and our online Budgeting Tool. In the span of savings for one year, you could be clinking glasses with the biggest celebrities next March!

Now, let’s break down the actual costs of the trip: a ticket to the 2018 Oscars starts at about $150 and airfare round-trip cost roughly $500. Add in the expenses of food, a hotel, and transportation, and you’re looking at trip that’s about $1500, give or take. By opening a Special Savings, you can dedicate a share solely for your trip where you can make as many deposits as you’d like and can withdraw too without any penalties. Want there to be an automatic amount taken out of your paycheck every month and put directly into your Oscars account? Sure! We can do that for you too—any amount you’d like, as many times as you like. And finally, we even have the Budgeting Tool through our Online Banking that can help you meet your goal, month by month, and will give you set numbers you should achieve by certain dates. With these helpful tips to get you to the 2018 Oscars, you’ll be booked and boarding in no time.

Just don’t forget to make those travel plans, folks! Bon voyage and hello Hollywood!
