Christmas Saver Account

A safe, easy & flexible way to save for a happy Christmas

A FAIRshare Christmas Saver Account will enable you to save regularly to give you greater peace of mind at Christmas. It also prevents starting the New Year with a large credit card bill. Save a little each week or month, to take some of the stress away so you can enjoy the Christmas season.

A FAIRshare Christmas Saver Account is an easy & manageable way to save. Saving something each pay day helps spread the cost to create a more peaceful and happy Christmas.

To encourage you to save, the account is ‘locked’ until 1st November. You can then withdraw your savings and to do your Christmas shopping. One “free withdrawal “ is permitted before the 1st October. There will be a charge of £5 per withdrawal for two further withdrawals before 1st October. This is to encourage you to save for Christmas. Save from just £1 a week or £5 a month, and you will be pleasantly surprised to see your savings grow & make a real difference at Christmas.

Use our handy Weekly or Monthly Christmas Saver Charts and see how much you can save for Christmas and perhaps even the January sales too!
