The Government Savings Bank (GSB) has launched a “Youth Savings” account scheme to celebrate World Savings Day on October 31 and promote saving among children and teenagers, bank president Withai Ratanakorn said.

“The GSB has organised activities to celebrate World Savings Day since 1999. This year, we have introduced the new ‘Youth Savings’ account with a minimum Bt100 needed to open an account, and a minimum monthly deposit of Bt50,” he said.

“Eligible customers aged 7-15 will receive a cash gift of Bt100 along with 1.25 per cent interest annually, while 108 customers via a lucky draw can stand to win Bt10,000 in prizes, with a total value of Bt1.08 million,” Withai said.

“The campaign will run from October 30 until August 31, 2021, while the lucky draw will be held on September 30, 2021,” he said.

The GSB will also hold a saving competition among students from schools that are members of the GSB School Bank project from January 1 to September 30, 2021. A 100 students and schools that have outstanding savings records during this period will receive prizes totalling Bt2.28 million along with honorary plaques and certificates.

“Furthermore, every customer who opens a new account or deposits over Bt500 at any GSB branch on October 30 will receive a piggy bank to commemorate GSB’s 107th anniversary,” Withai added.
