means it's never too early to build a strong financial path
backed by Bluestone
Introducing the Milestone Account.
A place to put birthday checks, allowance money, paychecks and all that loose change you find in the washing machine.
At Bluestone Bank, we believe it’s never too early to set kids up on a strong financial path. That’s why we created the Milestone Account. Designed to grow with them from birth to age 23, it’s an innovative tiered checking account and savings all rolled into one.
Each milestone brings a new set of benefits, like $10 birthday rewards up to age 12, an initial deposit match of $25, and a 5% interest rate on deposits under $500. No monthly fees. No ATM fees. No hassle – just set it and forget it! Plus, every step of the way, we’ll help you build not just savings but financial literacy.
