Small change can be a big part of your saving strategy.

Simple sign-up process

It takes no time to put this unique savings plan into action.

The key to SaveUp success is using your Fox debit card for as many everyday purchases as possible.

Have you ever gone through a check-out line where they ask if you want to round up your total and donate the difference to charity? It’s a great way for charities to earn quite a bit without asking any one person to give too much. It would also be a great way to put some money away into your Fox Communities Credit Union savings and checking accounts without ever noticing it. If only there was a way to do that…

Oh, wait, there is! With the Fox SaveUp program1, you can have all of your Fox debit card transactions rounded up to the nearest dollar. Then, at the end of the day, the total accumulated from everything you rounded up that day will be put into a Fox account of your choosing. You’ll be saving money each and every day you use your Fox debit card, and you won’t even realize it — until one day when you check your account and find out you’ve got a lot more in there than you thought. And what a day that will be!

  • Make purchases and payments with your Fox debit card
  • The total will be rounded up to the nearest dollar1
  • That amount will then be transferred from your checking account to another account of your choosing
  • It's the easiest way we can think of to help you reach your savings goals

Fox Communities Credit Union is a full-service, not-for-profit financial institution serving customers in the Northeast and Southeast Wisconsin areas of Appleton, Green Bay, Oshkosh, Manitowoc and Milwaukee.

Members must have a Fox checking account with a Fox debit card to be enrolled in SaveUp. Savings will vary based on number of purchases and purchase amounts made using debit card. Each eligible Debit card purchase will be calculated nightly with funds rounded to the nearest dollar and transferred from the checking account associated with your Fox debit card to designated receiving account in one lump sum. For a transaction to round up, the checking account balance must be sufficient to process the transaction and transaction amount must not be a whole dollar amount. A round up will not occur if the balance is zero, negative or becomes zero after the round-up transaction. Fox may cancel or modify this service at any time without prior notice.
