Hillsborough County, Fla. (Feb. 26, 2018) - If stashing money away for a rainy day or a specific purpose seems out of reach, the Hillsborough County Extension Service has a good way for you to start right now.
America Saves Week 2018 is Feb. 26 through March 3. Take the Tampa Bay Saves pledge at Tampa Bay America Saves, complete a short survey that will be emailed after submitting the pledge, and be entered for a chance to win a $50 gift card.
Twenty of the cards will be given away during the symbolic pledge drive. Those who sign up will receive regular tips and motivational messages that will be helpful whether you're saving for a child's college education, a new home or car, that dream vacation, retirement, or another goal.
America Saves is a non-commercial national campaign started in 2007 by the American Savings Education Council to inspire people to save money, reduce debt, and invest for future goals.
