How is saving with Squirrel different from my existing savings account?

Squirrel makes it easy to save and importantly helps to keep you excited about hitting your goals and not withdrawing your savings early - unlike a normal savings account.

  1. It's easy to create personalised savings pots for all the things you might want to save for. You can adding your own names and pictures to savings, and set goals and track progress - proven ways of staying motivated about your saving.
  2. Saving to your goals is automatic and is deducted before you're even paid. This means you don't notice the money being Squirrelled away and never forget to save!
  3. Your money is kept safe in your Squirrel account, separate from your normal bank account, so you're less tempted to dip into savings. It takes one working day for withdrawals to arrive, so you can resist those impulse buys.
  4. Squirrel automatically keeps your savings goals on track if you don't have enough to save in a given month. Squirrel will allocate any extra money coming into your account into any savings goals that are off-track to make sure you're still progressing towards hitting your savings goals!
