Suze Orman's Save Yourself Savings Program

I was perusing through the January issue of O Magazine on my outbound journey to DC on Saturday morning and, wonder of wonders, I came across an ad which featured personal finance maven, Suze Orman. Suze has recently partnered with TD Ameritrade to promote the Save Yourself campaign.

The crux of the campaign is this: if you save at least $100 per month through TD Ameritrade (and your deposits are insured) for twelve months, you will earn a free $100 bonus at the end of the savings period (of course, terms and conditions apply).

If you want to start saving money but just can't figure out how, this might be an option for you. For others, this might supplement your existing savings plan. $100 doesn't sound like a lot of money but free money always sounds good to me.

Just thought I'd put this out there:-)

Are you comfortable with the amount of money that you save? Do you have savings goals for 2009?


  1. I'm comfortable with the amount we save and I'm tightening my belt even moreso to save to make up for the dent I put in our savings this past year with my film aspirations.

  2. Hey Lady! It was so very nice to meet you yesterday! Glad you made it back home safely.

    Thanks for the info on the saving program, too.

  3. I have an ING Orange account to force myself to hide money as I was constantly draining the savings account attached to my checking.

    I hope in 2009 to double the amount I am saving (currently 100 per month). I am thinking of cutting out my acrylics and going with a regular mani/pedi. I've worn nails since college so this might take some doing but I would be able to kick at least another $100 bux doing that.


    Also hope to get another escrow refund like I did this year and promptly place that to savings as well.
