If you’re saving with something in mind, you can personalise your account to reflect your reason for saving with a name and an icon.
For instance, if you’ve opened a Flexible Saver to put money away for a holiday, you can rename your account ‘World Cruise’ or ‘New Conservatory - or whatever you wish. To do so, choose Personalise Account from the Account Options menu on the Account Summary page and follow the instructions.
If you’re in need of some extra motivation when saving up for something special, you can set yourself goals to encourage you to reach your target.
Log in to your account and select Account Options on the Account Summary page, then choose Add Savings Goal. You’ll be asked to give your goal a name, for example, “My Wedding”, and then enter your target savings amount. You’ll have the option of either specifying the date by which you want to achieve this goal, or alternatively, you can enter the amount of money you wish to deposit each month. Once you’ve clicked Next, you’ll need to choose which of your Ford Money accounts to which you’d like to link this goal. Please note you can only link one goal to one account.
Once your goal has been successfully created, it will appear on your Account Summary page where you’ll be able to track your progress until you reach your Savings Goal.
