Managing Your Money

Saving Smarter in the New Year

The start of a new year is the perfect time to begin your savings strategy or make a few adjustments to your current plan. Your hometown bank offers free digital tools to help you customize and maximize your savings.

Setup recurring transfers

Did you know you can setup automatic, recurring transfers from your Tri City checking account to your Tri City savings account? This means you can transfer any amount of money:

  • Weekly
  • Biweekly
  • Twice a month
  • Monthly
  • Quarterly
  • Semiannually
  • Annually

Automatic transfers make it easy to accumulate savings without having to think about it or find the time to transfer between your accounts. Check out Tri City’s savings calculator to begin planning your savings strategy.

Debit card controls

One way to control how much you save, is to limit how much (or where) you spend. Debit card controls let you limit where and how your card is used. You can enable or disable these features at any time in your Tri City mobile app by navigating to More > Card Controls.1

With debit card controls, you can:

  • Add or remove cards.
  • Enable or disable cards.
  • Turn on or off location controls.
  • Limit transaction types.
  • Limit merchant types.
  • Set threshold amounts.

With just a few taps on your phone, you could quickly spend large amounts of money on impulse buys. Debit card controls help keep your spending in-check and on-target with your goals.
