3 Financial New Year’s Resolutions You Can Actually Keep

Published: December 11, 2017

1. I will make the most of my money.

If you’ve been paying for checking, don’t let fees take a chunk of your money again. Instead, grow your account with Kasasa from Southern Bank. This free checking account offers nationwide ATM fee refunds*, free mobile banking** with mobile deposit and extra rewards – like 3.01% APY*, 4% cash back* or $9.90 in music and movie downloads each month*. It only takes a few minutes to sign up online: https://www.bankwithsouthern.com/personal/tools-services/switch-kit.html.

2. I will save time.

How much time did you spend in line at the bank last year? If you’re thinking, “a lot,” resolve to shorten that amount. Start the new year by signing up for free mobile banking with mobile deposit**, so you’ll be able to transfer funds, deposit checks, view transaction history and more without driving to the bank and waiting in line.

3. I will better protect myself.

With the constant risk of identity theft and fraud, it’s important to make sure your money stays where it belongs – with you. Our free CardValet app safeguards your Southern Bank debit card by allowing you to set spending limits, activate alerts, monitor transactions and even turn your card on and off. See how CardValet can protect you: https://www.bankwithsouthern.com/ebanking/ebanking/cardvalet-fraud-prevention.html.
