Belmont Savings Bank Announces Themed ‘Switch Saturday’ in Watertown Square
Belmont Savings Bank today announced it is holding community events at their Watertown Square branch. "Switch Saturday" will take place this Saturday, September 15 and will feature a variety of fun activities including door prizes, games and a pet parade.
“Switch Saturday promises to spotlight how easy and painless switching to Belmont Savings really is by demonstrating why thousands have already made the switch,” said Bob Mahoney, President and CEO of Belmont Savings Bank. “We encourage everyone in our community footprint – Belmont, Watertown, Waltham – to stop by one of our participating branches Saturday to see for themselves what this is all about.”
Each branch features its own theme. The Watertown branch, located at 53 Mount Auburn Street in Watertown Square, is following a duck theme – “Switching banks isn’t as difficult as it’s quacked up to be- our switch kit helps us get your ducks in a row!” In addition to face painting and door prizes from 9-1, the Watertown branch will also sport a duck mascot greeting customers and passersby.
Previously, Belmont Savings Bank launched a ‘60-Minute Switch Guarantee’ campaign aimed at encouraging new customers to transfer their bank accounts through an innovative and streamlined process. As part of the campaign, the Bank will complete a customer’s switch –with a simple, easy-to-use ‘switch’ kit– in less than an hour or guarantee prospective customers 60 dollars in their new account.
The switch kits enable new customers to collect data for all of their recurring electronic deposits and withdrawals -- direct deposits, car insurance, Internet, credit cards and mortgage/rent payments, investment plans -- onto one form, which allows for the seamless transfer of those transactions. Further, the kits include form letters to switch direct deposit, and redirect bill pays. The kits are available online as well as at all bank branches.
