Can you make purchases with a savings account?

Rounding it up

  • Savings accounts are a smart place to store your money because they often come with higher earning interest rates.

  • Banks offer interest on savings accounts because they use those funds to give loans.

  • While savings accounts are optimized for long term deposits, it is possible to make purchases with them.

  • However, you may have to pay a fee or lose out on the interest rate for doing so. Always check the terms of your savings account before using it to make a purchase.
