On starting the plan, the Bank will add a bonus of $10.00 and give a  First Citizens "piggy bank" to encourage the child to save. After that the "bonus" comes as an interest rate that is higher than the regular savings rate.

 

  • Start the plan with BBD$100.00
  • $10.00 bonus will be added to the account on opening with a First Citizens "piggy bank" to save your money.
  • 0.5% above the regular savings rate
