Choosing your club

The first thing you’ll need to do before you even join is deciding on a club.

There are a few different factors you should consider before you sign up.

Choosing your club

It’s a smart idea to think about:

Icon

The car
Make sure you love your new car. Pick the perfect one before you do anything else.

Icon

How long you want to pay
savings.club works with you to create a financing term that puts your needs first. You can choose one between 24 and 84 months. We let you decide how long your contract duration is, so you can plan your purchase better.

Icon

Your budget
After you’ve chosen a car, figure out how much you’re willing to spend on it. Make sure you can budget for more than the MSRP, so you can cover administration and vehicle registration fees. Our lowest club is valued at $5,000 and the highest at $135,000.

Discover financing deals

Once you have an idea of what you want, you should simulate some deals.

Our website has tools to let you see all your options before you sign a contract.

Choosing your club

Our simulator can show you key information about your contract including:

Savings clubs?

What are they?

Let’s say that each person in a group of 4 friends all want a new drone toy.

SC What are they

You all want to start planning to pay for the drone in full.

If each person puts $25 dollars into a shared savings account each month for the next 4 months, everyone will have $100 to own the drone without taking a loan.

SC What are they

Each person:

Icon

Will need $100 to buy it

Icon

Wants to own it in 4 months

Icon

Doesn’t want to borrow money to get it

So, once each friend pays $25 for the first month, $100 can be given to someone in the group.

SC What are they

In the second month, once again, everyone pays $25 so another person can receive $100 once all contributions have been made.

The next two months will be the same so that after 4 months, all 4 friends have $100 ready to buy the toy.

SC What are they

What will you be paying for?

savings.club charges you for the cost of your car.

Aside from your car payment, you’ll only be asked to pay low flat administration fees — equivalent APR (EAPR) — throughout the term of your contract.

If the car you want costs $40,000.

You can expect to pay a small administration fee on top of that cost each month.

If you pay a 1.3% EAPR on $40,000, you will pay an extra $1,869.25 total on the payment, making your monthly total for an 84-month term $498.44. That’s the lowest pricing on the market!

This is just an example, as club administration rates vary based on vehicle value and credit history.

If the car you want costs $40,000.

We never charge more than 9.9% EAPR

so our EAPR is the lowest on the market and we guarantee no one can offer you a better deal on your favorite car.

What is a common fund?

At savings.club, you save money with other members.

These savings are stored in a common fund.

What is EAPR?

savings.club only charges members an administration fee.

All payments from a club are stored in a common fund that’s used to pay for cars

Because you borrow money from other members through the common fund, credit vouchers are based on member savings scores.

This also means you don’t have to worry about the laundry list of fees banks charge you.

You’re on your way!

Once you’ve been selected to join and have signed your contract, you’re one step closer to getting your new car.

You don’t get a vehicle immediately, but you’ll get one soon if you

keep your savings score high.

In our savings club, your score is based on your payment habits.

start now

Always be sure to regularly monitor your savings score

Each member of the club will take turns using a voucher to get a car.

Make sure you’re paying on time to make your score higher.

Be careful, as a negative balance on your account will gradually lower your score, pushing you to the bottom of the voucher waitlist.

Our team periodically will check the common fund to see if there is enough money to award one and notify you if there is.

If you’ve fallen behind and wish to raise your score or if you just want to get ahead

you can make significant improvements by:

CheckInviting friends
CheckPaying early
CheckPaying extra
CheckSubmitting a credit check

Can you really buy a car with a credit voucher?

Of course! The voucher is used just like cash, and you can leave the payment and loose ends to us.

Early voucher awards aren’t guaranteed

Coins

Remember

You can get your voucher anytime during the duration of your contract.

Credit voucher award dates vary and aren’t guaranteed to be early, irregardless of how high your savings score is.

Pick up your car

Finally, after making enough headway to improve your savings score, you’re eligible to receive a credit voucher.

Continue making monthly payments

Remember, just because you got your car doesn’t mean that your contract is up. Unless you’ve completed your contract, you still need to make monthly payments.

Want to see how the money moves?

Since the common fund includes a little bit of everyone’s money, our app allows each member to track how much money is in the fund, as well as recent withdrawals and voucher awards.

You’ll always have access to information about your money.

We’re transparent so that members can trust that we’re being true.

All digital and card payments are processed securely.

All transactions made through savings.club are processed securely.

Not loving savings.club as much as you thought?

You can easily make the time and money spent worth your while by selling your club membership.

As long as you have a voucher, you can pass on the gift of savings.

We actually encourage it!

Once you receive your voucher, gift it to anyone you like so that they can use it to get a car of equal or lesser value

As long as the new owner takes on your monthly payments, you’re free to sell the voucher to whomever for any amount of money.

Cancelations that happen before a contract has been active for 60 days can receive a conditional refund.

start now

We do this so that:

savings.club retains its value

Fellow members aren’t negatively affected

Vouchers can still be awarded within your club

Having a membership terminated due to lapses in payment is not canceling.

You can actually incur fees and extra payments and negatively affect your credit history when you leave your fellow group members out to dry.

savings.club only works when each member commits to their contract.
