You can usually find Spen exploring the outdoors or playing outside on his skateboard - but if he has to be inside, Spen draws comics and does chores for extra pocket money.

How to save BIG time

If you really want to buy something, the quickest way to get it is to save up for it.

By putting away even small amounts of your pocket money, your savings will soon build up and grow into an amount that will get you what you’re after.

  • Whenever you get pocket money, deposit a regular amount straight into your savings account.
  • Offer to help around the house to earn extra pocket money.
  • Put any spare coins you have in your moneybox and see how quickly it fills up. When it’s full, deposit it into your savings account.

Every month that you make at least one deposit and don't take any money out of your Youthsaver account, you’ll earn ‘bonus interest’. Bonus interest is extra money the bank gives you as a reward for saving.

Try our Savings Tracker to help you keep track of your savings.

For mum and dad – get your child involved

When you open a Youthsaver account for a child who's 12 or under, they'll automatically join the Dollarmites Club and get a Platybank money box (pick up from your local branch).

A Youthsaver account encourages children to save by offering bonus interest.
