Change Jar

At BFCU we understand that saving money is important, and we want to make that easier for you!
To help, BFCU has a new feature for our checking accounts.

Introducing Change Jar

Change Jar helps our members save money. Every time you shop, we’ll round up your spending to the next dollar and save that extra change. Now that’s smart saving made easy!

It doesn’t matter if you’re saving for a down payment, retirement, or a round-the-world vacation – everyone can benefit from saving just a little more each day.

So How Does It Work?

Upon enrollment, BFCU will round up all Barksdale Federal debit card purchases* to the nearest dollar and transfer the difference from your checking account to your savings account. Change Jar savings can go to almost any BFCU savings account**, and all rounded funds will be transferred in a single transaction once daily (see example below).


Purchase Amount Rounded Up To Transferred to Savings
$1.50 $2.00 $0.50
$3.99 $4.00 $0.01
$15.00 $16.00 $1.00
$116.22 $117.00 $0.78
    Total Savings Deposit: $2.29
