There are unlimited reasons to use PiggyBanc, here are a few examples:
Give a birthday gift via PiggyBanc instead of sending a check or giving cash
When a child’s birthday arrives, people often write a check or put cash in a card and send it off in the mail. If the gift is cash, the money has very little chance of ever making it into a savings account before being spent. If it is a check, an extra burden is placed on the parents to drive to the child’s financial institution and deposit it. With PiggyBanc, the gift is automatically deposited into the child’s savings account and there is a permanent record of the gift. No more checks to write. No more trips to the branch to deposit checks. Also, the contributor has the flexibility to use an eCheck or a Credit Card if they are short on cash. PiggyBanc provides both ease of use AND flexibility.

You can simply make a contribution to them via PiggyBanc and once the funds arrive in their Savings account, they can go to any branch in the CU Service Centers network, or even stop at their local Vcom in over 2,000 7-Eleven convenience stores and withdraw their funds!
New Baby is Born
