BAWAG P.S.K. world savings week from 23 to 31 October


VIENNA, October 23, 2017 – There are just as many forms of saving as there are reasons to save. The possibilities range from fulfilling children’s wishes in order to bring a smile to their faces to saving for future education needs to turning really big, long-held wishes into reality – a dream house at the edge of the city, a trip around the world, or a brand-new car.

During the World Savings Week 2017, BAWAG P.S.K. is highlighting various forms of saving for different target groups and their individual savings and investment solutions.

“Just like every year, we are looking forward to the World Savings Day! What could be better than talking to our customers about their dreams and finding a tailored solution to help turn them into reality?” said Markus Gremmel, Head of Marketing & Products at BAWAG P.S.K.

The Safe&Cool card

The Safe&Cool card (with PIN function) teaches children about saving in a somewhat different way.1) The topic of saving is interpreted in the context of the digital world: The Safe&Cool card is not only a free bank card for children up to the age of 13 to use for small payments for everyday needs (a maximum of EUR 10 per day), but also offers a highly attractive interest rate of 2.5% p.a. for their allowance. In addition, the Safe&Cool card allows parents to monitor their children’s account activity via eBanking.

There are also other benefits in addition to the Safe&Cool card. Each child receives a reflective key chain upon opening the account. Parents get a free starter package from including a free SIM card with an initial credit of EUR 9.90 as well as a voucher for a 15% discount on Stabilo pens and markers. Personal accident insurance for children between the ages of six and ten is also included.

The NICKI passbook savings account

Smart savings: With the NICKI passbook savings account, children under the age of 13 can earn interest on their savings just like mom and dad and also receive a NICKI piggy bank. The NICKI passbook savings account has a term of four years and is a great gift idea for children, grandchildren, and godchildren.

Wüstenrot building association savings agreements
