SaverLife Savings Program (Guaranteed $60 Reward)
A part of all you earn is yours to keep. It should be not less than a tenth no matter how little you earn
–The Richest Man in Babylon by George Clason
SaverLife Savings Program, formerly Earn savings program, is a non-profit organization that help families save and invest to build wealth. The program lasts six months and for every month you save $20, a $10 reward is set aside for you to redeem when the program ends. To see if you qualify for this program, please click here. I sent an inquiry regarding income qualifications and tax implications to the program’s support team and you can see the answer to my question in the picture below.

I enrolled in the program six months ago and redeemed my reward this morning! Last month I took some money from my savings account and forgot to transfer it back so I did not get the full $60 reward. The $50 reward I earned will be used toward the purchase of one of my holiday gifts.
