New $5k Savings Account

Saving money is about planning for the long run; the more you save now, the less you’ll borrow later. With the new $5k Savings account, you're rewarded for building good savings habits so you can succeed in meeting your financial goals.

There are a lot of great features to the $5k account that will help you to reach your savings goals faster including a special bonus interest rate over the traditional FAIRWINDS savings account.

Monthly automatic deposits will help your account grow at a steady pace. With at least one automatic deposit a month from your FAIRWINDS checking account, you’ll save money by avoiding the monthly $10 maintenance expense.

To learn more or to sign up for your $5k Savings account today, stop by any branch or call Member Services at 407.277.5045.

A $10 fee will be assessed each time you withdraw from the $5k Account. Monthly $10 maintenance fee will be waived with at least one automatic deposit from a FAIRWINDS checking account. Interest rates and terms subject to change.
