Saving is Fun!

Help kids enjoy saving and learning ​

A great way for kids to start saving is with a Saveroo account. They’ll be part of the Kirby Kangaroo Kids Club, saving and learning as they grow. Mom, dad, or a legal guardian can get started by opening the child’s account.

As you help your child save, we offer advice to meet your goals for their future. We offer incentives and activities so they can enjoy the rewards of saving with tangible prizes, develop good habits, and learn the basic values that money represents.

Kirby Kangaroo Kids Club

Our Kirby Kangaroo Kids Club is a great way for parents to encourage their kids to save, and give kids through age 12 access to fun, age-appropriate saving and financial lessons, games, and prizes. Once you’ve opened an account for them, they are automatically part of the club. 

Savings Means Rewards

For every $5 they deposit, they earn 1 Kirby Buck (direct deposits are not included). Kirby Bucks can be saved and redeemed for prizes like a plush Kirby Kangaroo or passes to the Utica Zoo. Limit 5 Kirby Bucks given out per person/per account/per day. Limit of 1 prize redeemed per person/per account/per day. Current savings prize details are listed below.
