Savings accounts with additional values

One of the principles of wealth creation is savings. You can’t build wealth without saving a portion of your earnings. Though the prevailing circumstance in the country makes it challenging for one to save as the high inflation rate ravaging the Nigerian economy has eaten deep into the disposable income of most people, leaving them with nothing to save at the end of the month, you still have to squeeze yourself to set outside something for the rainy day.
And in doing this, you don’t have to dump your money in a savings account that pays very low interest on your savings. You have to search for accounts that give you the best bargain in terms of interest and additional values. Some savings accounts that offer you benefits that you would not from conventional savings accounts will be reviewed below:
