1. Look for the highest savings account rates.

See our savings account rate comparison table to get a feel for what you could be earning. The national average savings account rate is just 0.17%.4

When looking for a savings account, you’ll want to find what’s called a “high-yield savings account.”

What is a high-yield savings account?

High-yield savings accounts are a type of savings account that pay a lot more than the national average rate. That means you’ll save more with a high-yield savings account than you would with a traditional savings account.

With a Varo Savings Account, you can qualify to earn 5.00% APY (on your balance up to $5,000).1 That’s one of the highest savings rates in the country.5

2. Compare savings account rates to see how much you could earn

Whether you’re saving for your dream trip or building an emergency fund, earning $100 on a balance of $2,000 will help get you there faster than if you earn only $3.40 on that same balance. It’s easy money!

4. Bonus tip: Find an account with automatic savings tools.

While they don’t affect your savings account rate, automatic savings tools are a good way to grow your money effortlessly. 

A Varo Savings Account comes with two automatic savings tools you can turn on or off whenever you want.

Save Your Pay takes a percentage of your direct deposits and transfers it to your Savings Account. You choose the percentage.

Save Your Change rounds up every transaction to the nearest dollar and transfers the amount to your Savings Account.
