At Scottish Friendly, we’re passionate about savings and investments! We want the nation to think more about their savings habits and encourage more positive discussion on the subject. We know everyone wants his or her family to be financially secure. However, the reality of achieving this can be tough, and is only set to get tougher for young people in the future. That’s why we’re launching The Great British Savings Challenge.

The Great British Savings Challenge will follow 2 households across the UK with different family and financial circumstances. Each of our households will take on a series of challenges which we will post as they are undertaken, the first one is already live and underway here. We will be keeping you updated throughout the challenges with all the highs and lows that our households experience and passing along any helpful tips they have along the way.

But it is not just all about those households taking part, our households will need some help and that is where we want you to get involved! If you post a tip on any of our Savings Challenge blogsFacebook or Twitter you could be in a chance of winning a My Rewards gift card.

Our resident savings expert Calum Bennie will be compiling a blog of the top tips we receive and each tip that is mentioned in the blog will win a £15 gift card to spend in over 50 retailers across the UK.

It really is that simple – get involved today!
