#SavingsMonth tips and tricks!


Wages have been slashed, work contracts are no more, your savings are slowly drying up, that pay raise you were looking forward to is just a distant dream, your mask keeps smudging your lipstick and you have not been on a date in 100+ days … It is 2020, y’all!

Lucky for you, we have some tips and tricks to help you this #SavingMonth with Nedbank and Unlocked.Me!

Put savings first!

  • ‘One of the most important keys to saving success is to view saving as something you do on a regular and disciplined basis, before you spend. If you are thinking of saving as something you do if you have anything left over at the end of the month, this could be a recipe for disaster.’ (Read more and take the Nedbank savings pledge)


Compare prices!

  • The internet offers soooo much information on prices and products and we should take full advantage of it. There are lots of websites that track, compare prices and give you reviews. Make an effort to compare the prices of products and services to make sure you get the most bang for our bucks!


It is time for a money detox!

  • It is time to take a long hard look at your credit and find ways to clear the credit card quicker! It is important to reduce your spending and just simplify your finances, which includes things like tracking down unwanted debits, cutting utility bills and building yourself a rainy-day fund!


Be smart with your savings with MyPocket!

  • MyPocket is Nedbank's hassle-free money management facility that can be linked to any Nedbank current account.
