6 Ways to Save This Holiday Season
- “Treat yo self” a little bit less
- Start shopping early
- Give homemade gifts
Have you ever wondered why financial planners say employer-sponsored plans and Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) — such as Discover’s IRA Certificates of Deposit (CDs) — should be the first priority for people saving for retirement? Let’s look at the key reasons why:
Individual Retirement Accounts are also on top of any planner’s priority list. Like employer-sponsored plans, Traditional IRAs allow account earnings to compound on a tax-deferred basis.
You may also consider supplementing your tax-deferred retirement assets with additional non-tax-deferred savings accounts. With that in mind, consider the benefits of a Discover Money Market Account, which gives you the best of both worlds: high yields with flexible access to your savings2. After all, the more you set aside today, the better your financial future is likely to be.
In addition to offering IRA CDs and Money Market Accounts, Discover also offers an Online Savings Account to help you with your short-term savings goals and a full range of CDs to help you save for the future. It is easy to open an account online or call our 24-hour U.S.-based Customer Service at 1-800-347-7000.

2 Federal law limits certain types of withdrawals and transfers from savings and money market accounts to a combined total of 6 per calendar month per account. There are no limits on ATM withdrawals or official checks mailed to you. To get an account with an unlimited number of transactions, consider opening a Discover Cashback Debit account. If you go over these limitations on more than an occasional basis, your account may be closed. See Section 11 of the Deposit Account Agreement for more details.
