A smart shopper knows how to save money and get everything on their list. The next time you’re shopping, consider the following tips and tricks!
Save before you splurge
Set up recurring transfers from your checking account to your savings account for tiny amounts (like $1 a day or $10 a week) that will have little-to-no daily impact but can yield big results in the long term.
Shop with a list
Determine what items you need before leaving the house or jumping online to avoid impulse and unneeded purchases.
Use smarter ways to pay
Your TCF debit card keeps you protected while you shop with zero fraud liability. Try out these easy, safe ways to pay for your next shopping spree.
- Add your TCF debit card as your default payment option with your favorite websites and apps
- Pay safely and quickly with your phone by linking your debit card to a mobile wallet, such as Apple Pay®, Google Play™, and Samsung Pay
- Use tap-to-pay when you see the contactless payment symbol at checkout
Beat boredom spending
Avoid spending money simply because you’re bored. Instead, funnel free time toward entertainment options that don’t cost much at all—like reading a book, playing a game on your phone, or giving friends and family a call to see how they’re doing.
