Change Maker Savings Account

As high as 1.00% APY*
Reach Your Goals, All of Them!

You have goals and Scient wants to help you reach them — all of them. If you feel that you have a hard time saving money each month, there’s a simpler way. Rather than saving large amounts at a time, you can start small.

With a Change Maker Savings Account from Scient, we can help you save with every transaction. Each time you use your Scient Debit Card to make a purchase, the transaction will be rounded to the nearest dollar. 

For example, if you have a purchase total of $23.45, we will round the purchase up to $24.00 and the difference of $0.54 is deposited into your Change Maker Savings Account.

PLUS, you earn 1% APY* on your balance!

You can easily save in three steps: Enroll, Shop, and Save!

You have three ways to sign up:
