Interactive Online Experience

Help your kid learn about and practice saving, sharing and spending money.

Sign into your PNC Online Banking and select the S is for Savings account. You will see a table with three jars: one for savings, one for sharing and one for spending. When you add money to the account, it appears on the table, where it's ready to be placed into any of the three jars, depending on how your kid wants to use it. As part of the experience, you and your kid can move money around as often as you like to reinforce the concepts of saving, sharing and spending


Visit the Learning Center within the S is for Savings experience for financial basic tips from your favorite Sesame Street characters.

The Learning Center also includes a number of activities you and your kid can do together to build on the basic money concepts learned through the outreach initiative, For Me, for You, for Later: First Steps to Spending, Sharing, and Savings.

At PNC, we think starting early is important. And we're committed to helping kids start off right with financial education. That's why we offer tools to help you teach your kid basic money concepts.

PNC provides other resources for the older kids in your life.
