This automatic savings program produces savings totals that will surprise you, by drawing on an unlikely source you’ll hardly notice. With our Round Up and Save program, we automatically round up every purchase you make with your Debit Card to a round dollar figure, and deposit the ‘spare change’ into your FirstOntario savings account. You can choose from three amounts – the nearest dollar, or $5 or $10 if you want to build your savings faster.
Ever find yourself unable to come up with the cash to make an RSP deposit in February? Now there’s a simple, painless solution. Invest-as-You-Go lets you build up an RSP, TFSA or unregistered deposit through automatic contributions of as little as $50 a month from your FirstOntario chequing account. Whether it’s weekly, bi-weekly on pay days, monthly, or even semi-annually, just choose the frequency that suits you best.
