  • All participants of the Swedbank Youth Programme may participate in the BankMeter loyalty programme.
  • The more often you pay with your card, make a money transfer on the Internet Bank or in the app, the faster your loyalty indicator will increase in the BankMeter.
  • You have reached the highest indicator and completed the BankMeter? Select whatever prize you like from the catalogue on the Internet Bank!
  • You will see the BankMeter upon logging in to your Internet Bank.
  • Upon reaching the 100% loyalty indicator you will be able to select a prize from the Loyalty Programme prize catalogue. After reaching 100% indicator, it will be active until you order the prize.
  • You can use the Loyalty Programme prize catalogue only upon logging in to your Internet Bank account.
  • After you select and order your prize, your BankMeter will update to the level of 0%, and you will be able to increase your loyalty indicator again.

Important!

Don’t worry if, upon ordering the prize and updating of the BankMeter, you still see 0% even if you have performed actions that increase the loyalty indicator. Remember that the BankMeter updates once in a month. Thus, it is best to check it at the beginning (on the 10th day) of the subsequent month.

How can I save?

Personal finances are all the matters related with your money management, saving and investment.

Knowing how to manage your finances helps to manage money, set goals and reach them, choose the best solutions for your money matters.

There are different ways, which can help you to save money

Create a savings plan

Calculate how much money you will need to put aside for savings every month to reach your goal.

Set up your saving goals

Having a clear goal will motivate you to save up to a particular sum.

Separate your savings from your everyday money

By putting aside your savings, you will not risk spending them on spontaneous purchases.

Don‘t underestimate small coins

Start saving with small steps - put loose change in your piggy bank.

Setting up your budget

80/20 rule

Spend only about 80% of the money you get and save the other 20%. Use 80/20 rule when planning your budget. Divide your income into at least two categories:

Expenses – 80% of the budget

Money that you will spend in the short-run (e.g. lunch at school, candy, magazines, etc.).

Savings – 20% of the budget

Money that will be spent on more expensive things (e.g. a smartphone, jeans, tuition fee instalments for university, etc.).

Needs and wants

You should learn to distinguish between needs and wants. Below you can find an example list of needs and wants. Please be aware that needs and wants will not be the same for everybody.

  • School books
  • Public transport ticket
  • Lunch at school (food)
  • New toys
  • Entertainment (cinema tickets)
  • Coffeehouse drinks

Distinguish between needs and wants

How to know which things are the ones you really need and which ones you want? You can distinguish between them by following these steps:

Group your purchases into different categories (e.g. entertainment, food, etc.).

Generally, a need is something you can’t live without. A want is everything else that is not a need.

A rule of thumb is that you should spend 50% of your income on your needs and around 30% on your wants. If your current spending is largely disproportionate, you should either reconsider your categories or cut spending in either of the categories. 20% of your income should go to your savings.

While using daily banking products, you should keep in mind these safety recommendations to prevent unnecessary incidents.

  • Always keep your card and your PIN code safe.
  • Always check the sum of the transaction before entering your PIN number.
  • Make sure nobody sees your PIN code while entering it.
  • Always pay attention to the transaction when making a payment.
  • Always set a screen lock.
  • Use different passwords for each site.
  • Use strong passwords that you can remember.
  • Do not open emails from unknown senders.
  • Make sure your phone is locked.
  • Be careful with what you download. Download apps safely and from official app stores.
  • Never give out your personal details online.
  • Do not open websites or links that seem suspicious.

When you decide to sign any legal document (for example a gym membership contract):

  • Read the whole document and pay attention to details.
  • Make sure you understand everything in the document- if anything is unclear, ask for clarification.
  • When you have signed the contract, save a copy.
  • Remember you are responsible for your commitments in the contract!
