Introducing Scoot!


scoot_webtile2I’ve been banking with bcu (Bananacoast Community Credit Union) for years, so I was pretty happy when I found out they have introduced a savings program especially for kids, Scoot’s super savers.

And we here at Coffs for Kids are firm believers in keeping it local and supporting local, so it didn’t take long for me to close my son’s existing school banking account and open up a Scoot’s super saver with bcu.

Research shows money habits are formed around the age of 7 years old, and as a parent or carer we are the number one influence on our childrens’ financial behaviour. So by opening up a Scoot’s super saver at a young age, you are laying the foundations for effective money management later in life.

Scoot’s super saver is a combined savings and access product for children under 13, with no monthly fee and bonus interest to reward good saving habits.

If you can manage to put $20 in your Scoot’s super saver each month and not take more than $5 out, bcu will reward you with bonus interest so your savings will grow faster.

Scoot’s super savers also get:

  • A Scoot money saver to help collect your coins
  • Stickers and rewards for saving
  • A Scoot’s super saver statement sent to you in the mail every few months
  • A birthday card from Scoot
  • Plus access to Scoot’s website – it’s jam-packed with savings and money safety tips, a Scoot’s savings planner, competitions and games (

Other reasons to join:

  • You can open a Scoot’s super saver online
  • Get a great interest rate with bonus interest to reward regular savings.
  • It’s super easy to transfer money between bcu accounts (I just pay his pocket money straight from my bank account)
  • You can easily check balance online as your accounts can be linked
  • Stay local and keep it local – bcu’s profits benefit this region, not external shareholders.
  • Scoot is cute!
  • The staff at bcu are very friendly and approachable and make banking a pleasant and easy experience!
  • bcu is a credit union with a strong commitment to providing fair go, competitive banking products and services
  • There are bcu stores across the region and at convenient locations, so if you do need to pop in it’s easy!

Scoot is also a major sponsor of Coffs for Kids, so I’d love you to show your support for another locally grown business!
