Special Saver Account

Put money into one of our Special Saver Accounts to build up the funds you need for that big event - a wedding, a birthday, an anniversary, etc. You can also use a Special Saver Account to put aside money you are going to need for some other major expense, such as redecoration or a new TV. Just tell us when you think you will need the money and the amount you saved will be there when you need it.

Holiday Saver Account

Use a Holiday Saver Account in the same way to build up the money you will need to pay for your holiday and have a good time while you are there.

Christmas Savings Account

Our Christmas Savings Account allows you to spread the cost of the festive season by saving throughout the year. To help plan ahead, simply open an account and save money every week, fortnight or month. Then, come November - when you are looking to start Christmas shopping or arranging festive treats and fun nights out you’ll have money available and ready to use. (To remove the temptation to spend your savings earlier, you can’t withdraw money from the Christmas Savings Account until November each year.)

By planning ahead, you could avoid facing a hefty credit card bill in the New Year or excessive repayments for a Payday loan.

If you are interested, all you need to do is open an account and start saving. Your money will soon add up and each November we can, if you have one, credit the money to your Engage Visa debit card. Alternatively, we can pay your savings into your chosen bank or building society account.

Unlike Christmas Saving Clubs and Hamper schemes, the money in your Essex Savers Christmas Savings Account is fully protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (“FSCS”).
