“Coming together as a blended family in 2014, we made a home of an austere house void of a feminine touch for years and, worse, lacking necessary functionality. Our American Express Savings allow us to aggressively save in a manner that soon afforded us the opportunity to do the necessary remodeling to accommodate our instant family.”
“As a single mother of two, savings are very important for me. I made a goal to save $10,000 by my 30th birthday as a birthday gift to myself, and decided to utilize American Express Personal Savings to meet my goal. I have a certain amount direct deposit to my personal savings account and the money just saves like magic! I highly recommend American Express personal savings to anyone looking to start saving for a long term goal.”
“My family motivates me to save for our future. I have a family, a house, many things others have, and the ability to earn money on what I'm saving with an account like this has encouraged me to save more. I want to continue to provide a better standard of living for my family, and this account is a great place to save for that down payment.”
