S&I – FLEXI ADVANTAGE
Don’t spend it all this festive season
The festive season is fast approaching. In a year that’s been particularly tough for many households, the temptation to spend your 13th cheque or bonus on a holiday or using it to buy luxury goods is hard to resist. But, taking a long-term view and using your bonus wisely could make life in 2017 a lot easier.
Instead of regarding your bonus as ‘extra money’ that can be spent freely, how about investing it in a fixed deposit account? Investing your bonus in a fixed term account means that your money earns interest for a set period. The longer the period the better the return! The magic of compound interest will work for you and your money will grow significantly. If you are concerned that you may not be able to access your cash in an emergency, Standard Bank’s Flexi Advantage account may be just what you need. It offers you the same benefits, but the peace of mind if knowing that you are able to access up to 40% in times of need.
