The 6 Best Summer Vacation Savings Accounts
With multiple financial goals, itís understandable that saving up for fun expenses could fall to the wayside. College savings, a retirement plan or emergency fund will often take priority when it comes to divvying up your paycheck, but not having sufficient cash saved for your summer travel plans could threaten your bank account, as well.

Luckily, many local banks and credit unions offer high-interest vacation savings accounts designed to help people save up for their much-needed getaways. The average U.S. savings account rate is 0.12% APY; these institutions significantly beat that number, making it easier ó and quicker ó to sock away money for summer vacation plans.

If you work in education, Foothill Credit Union offers an even greater incentive to use its SummerTime Savings product; to help school employees who do not receive paychecks during the summer months, Foothill Credit Union is offering a 3.00% APY to account holders who work at one of the school Select Employer Groups.
