Save when paying with a card

You can automatically save in your Money Box when paying with the following OP cards: Visa Credit/Debit, Visa Gold, Visa Debit, Visa Basic and Visa Electron.

Simply activate Auto Save through card and an amount of your choice will be transferred to your Money Box target every time you pay with your card. If you have several savings targets, you can define for each target a specific amount that will be transferred in connection with each card payment. Please note that for Visa Credit/Debit and Visa Gold cards, the transfer is done when you pay with the debit feature.

If, for example, you choose three euros as your savings amount and use your card 15 times a month, you'll save 45 euros. That would mean 540 euros in a year. Your savings will build up without even noticing.

 

Use Money Box to start investing in mutual funds

Put your extra cash to work instead of keeping it idle on a bank account. Money Box provides an easy way to start investing in mutual funds. When you activate mutual fund investing in Money Box, your extra savings will be transferred from your Money Box account to the fund you have selected. Mutual fund assets have a higher expected return than accounts in the long term because the assets are invested in bond or equity markets.

You have seven different mutual funds to choose from. OP-Climate, OP-Clean Water and OP-Sustainable World are sustainability-themed funds. They invest in companies whose products and services help prevent the progress of climate change, improve access to clean water and promote social responsibility and good corporate governance practices. In addition, you can also choose between four cost-effective index funds: OP-World Index, OP-Finland Index, OP-Europe Index and OP-Nordic Countries Index.
