A selfie, a commitment to save money and a goal for what to do with that savings is all you need to enter the America Saves Week sweepstakes for a chance to win up to $750.
America Saves Week, now in its 12th year, was created by Consumer Federation of America, made up of more than 270 consumer education, advocacy, and cooperative organizations dedicated to consumer issues.
Celebrated from February 25 to March 2, this effort to encourage Americans to save money is supported by more than 1,000 credit unions, banks, nonprofits and other organizations.
Directors Choice Credit Union, with a membership consisting of funeral directors and their employees and family, is among 15 New York-based entities spreading the America Saves Week message.
When it comes to saving money, all you need is a goal and a little encouragement to help you reach that goal.

2. Next, share your tip, story, video or photo featuring your savings goal. Be sure the post answers at least one of these questions:
- What are you saving for?
- What is your savings story and how can it help other people?
- What is your favorite savings tip or trick?
3. Then, post it on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #ImSavingForSweepstakes.
Keep it simple by taking a video or picture in front of the item you’re saving for – like a new car or house.
Use a video or photo editing tool to put yourself in the frame with your goal – like a trip to the Grand Canyon or Mount Rushmore.
Use an app to add a caption or some character to your submission. It’s that simple!
