Kids Savings Club
The Kirby Kangaroo Savings Account is exclusively for kids under 13 years old. The idea is easy: Save money and get prizes. The more money you save in your account, the bigger and better the prizes are.
How it works
- For every $10 you add to your Kirby Kangaroo Account, you’ll get a Kirby Buck.
- Redeem your bucks for fun prizes
- Bigger prizes cost more Kirby Bucks, so it pays to save them up!
- Check out some of the prizes
Kirby Kangaroo Club members find even more fun online.
Our Kirby Kangaroo website is full of cool games, articles about Kirby’s adventures, Kirby’s jokes and even coloring pages.
Kirby Kangaroo Kids Club
The Kirby Kangaroo Kids Club is a savings program at Rio Grande Credit Union for kids ages 0-12, and is designed to help educate children about the value of money and good saving habits in their early years. It’s easy to join — all it takes is a $5 deposit to open the savings account and a parent or guardian to be a joint owner of the account.
A Kirby Kids Club account is different from a regular savings account. It earns higher dividends on balances from $25 to $500 on deposit.
As a Kirby member, kids will receive a membership card and a Kirby Kangaroo Club Passbook. They receive Kirby bucks for each deposit, and sticker cards can be redeemed for fun prizes. In addition, they will receive a birthday card from Kirby Kangaroo, invitations to club events and parties and more!
Why a Kirby Kids Club Account?
By providing their own account with an incentive to save, you're helping your kids build confidence in their financial future? A regular savings program helps children understand the basics of personal finance and demonstrates the power of savings to help kids reach their goals.
Even very young children can grasp the fundamentals of saving, and become excited about having their very own savings program. As they grow and acquire allowances, after-school jobs and other income sources, children can see those savings add up — and their pride and independence grow, too.
