Dollar Dog Saving Account
Joining is easy and FREE! Simply open a Dollar Dog Kids Club Savings Account for each child in your family with an initial deposit of $5 or more. In having a Dollar Dog Account, your child will learn the value of saving money. Visit the Dollar Dog Clubhouse, with content for both kids and parents. When they join, children receive:
- an Official Club Membership Card
- a Savings Passbook
- Two "Dog Dollars"
There will be special events and contests at the credit union, and Dollar Dog's Clubhouse is always open for learning, fun, and games. A child must join the credit union to become a member of the Dollar Dog Kids Club. All accounts for members under age 18 must have a parent or guardian co-owner.
Earning Dog Dollars
Dollar Dog Savings Accounts will begin earning dividends with a $5 savings balance. With every $5 increment deposited thereafter, your child will receive a "Dog Dollar" that may be spent or saved (not to exceed 10 Dog Dollars per visit). You will find a Treasure Chest full of toys at every branch location. Your child may spend the Dollars at the treasure chest or choose to save the Dollars for another visit. If your children already have a youth account with TwinStar Credit Union, simply come in to any of our branch locations to receive a Dollar Dog Kids Club Membership Kit* (no additional deposit is required).
Financial fitness is even more important for young people in their teens. At age 13, Dollar Dog savings accounts are automatically converted to Outfitters Savings accounts, continuing to earn dividends on balances of $5 or more. Teenagers can also start their first checking accounts at TwinStar, including free online banking and Bill Payer. You will need to be listed as a joint owner on Financial Outfitters accounts for your children under the age of 18.
