Daily Quarter Saver..............

.................Broadway Savings Bank.

When I was a kid, banks had promotions to help motivate kids to save. I don't believe they do anything like that today.

    I mostly remember dime savers from our bank.

    It would be a great program to help kids save today also. I just wonder how many kids use change and really understand what the denomination of the coins are? My grandkids are being taught in school in 1st grade about the different denominations and they say all the kids have trouble identifying the coins value. Their parents don't use change, just credit cards.

    We had those, but then it was nickels..... I never deposited them... saved them in my bureau drawer... Until I needed something. Cheers, RickO

    New York City bank ... that's why it's quarters and not dimes.
