EARN + Connecticut United Ways

We are partnering to offer you EARN Starter: a free, online savings tool that rewards you for saving every month.

Invest in yourself

EARN Starter is a free, easy to use program that helps you save for what's most important. You can start saving in minutes.

For every $20 you save, you'll get $10 in cash rewards. In just 6 months, you'll have at least $180 dollars saved from your own contribution and earned rewards.

Whether you're saving to go back to school, a new house, or a trip to Hawaii, EARN will help you get there. Pick a savings goal and keep your eyes on the prize!

How EARN Starter Works

  1. Sign up and link your savings account to EARN

  2. Pick a savings goal and amount. You can save for anything you want!

  3. Save at least $20 in your account and earn $10 in rewards each month.

Free. Easy to use. Bank-level Security.

EARN Starter is not a bank or savings account. To participate, you will need an online savings account with a bank or credit union based in the United States that connects to our savings program. 

Which banks do we connect to?

To earn rewards, you must connect your bank account at a financial institution that is compatible with our savings program. To ensure that you get the best experience on the EARN Starter, we connect with institutions that offer the strongest and most reliable connections.
