And, we'll match a portion of those savings!QuickSave
When you set up your QuickSave account, you'll determine how much you'd like to save with each transaction, either $0.25 or $0.50, and we'll link everything to your Bank of Albuquerque savings or money market account. Each night, we'll take the number of debit card and online Bill Pay transactions, multiply the total by your QuickSave amount, the $0.50 or $0.25, and then transfer that amount to your savings or money market account in one transfer. Each year, we'll automatically transfer our match amount within 6-8 weeks after the anniversary date of your account. After you've enrolled, you can see the transfer activity in both your checking account and savings account.QuickSave<sup>SM</sup>
