Systematic Savings with Build-a-Buck

Our Build-a-Buck solution is an innovative investment vehicle where you make regular deposits into automatically renewable Certificates of Deposit. These regular investments – as low as $25 per month – must be set up with automatic funds transfers (AFT) from your First Midwest Checking, Savings, or Money Market accounts, and the initial investment is minimal . . . making the Build-a-Buck program an ideal choice for those who need a monthly budget approach to get their savings plan started. With First Midwest Build-a-Buck, you'll enjoy: 

  • A low initial investment. 
  • Competitive interest, credited quarterly. 
  • Multiple tiers so higher balances earn more interest. 
  • 100 Tuition Rewards points plus 5% annually of your year-to-date average account balance.
