Wisconsin Saves Fun Tip: Technology Saving Tips Week 1: To Upgrade or Not to Upgrade?


Small Logo CroppedThe Wisconsin Office of the State Treasurer proudly teams up with WWBIC (Wisconsin’s WomensWWBIC Business Initiative Corporation) for “Wisconsin Saves Fun Tip.”

The entire month of October, we are committed to Technology Saving Tips!  This week, to upgrade or not to upgrade.

Sometimes we upgrade our technology because it’s stopped working; too often it is to have the latest gadget.  Stop upgrading so often to save some money.  Compare what you have with what you need and make sure you’re not just buying the label.   Search for tips online for how to rejuvenate your old equipment by restoring factory settings or cleaning the hard drive.   This might be just the new gift to yourself you’ve been looking for!


FAQ Edvest: How Do I Set Up Payroll Deduction for My Account?


Payroll Deduction

Simplify your life and make consistent, automatic contributions to Edvest by setting up payroll deduction.

Payroll deduction is a convenient and flexible method to contribute to your existing Edvest account. If your employer offers this benefit, you can contribute as little as $15 per pay period from your paycheck. You can stop, start or change your deduction amount at any time.

If you leave your employer, contributions will automatically stop. You have the option to start a new payroll deduction with your new employer, if allowed, or you can choose to add contributions to your account by check, an automatic contribution plan or electronic funds transfer at any time.

Wisconsin Saves Fun Tip: GETTING YOU GAS, Week 1


OST Design large sealThe Wisconsin Office of the State Treasurer proudly teams up with WWBIC (Wisconsin’s WomensWWBIC Business Initiative Corporation) for “Wisconsin Saves Fun Tip.”

The entire month of September, we are committed to GETTING YOU GAS FOR LESS!  This week, it’s all about HOW you pay for it. 

When you purchase gas this month, the right form of payment may make all the difference!  Several credit cards are offering great rebates, but most are only good through the end of September.  Chase Freedom and Discover Card are both offering 5% cash back while deals beyond September include American Express’ Blue Cash Preferred and Bank Americard that offer 3%.  With the average gallon of gas in Wisconsin up to $3.48, every penny counts!  Just remember… if you don’t normally purchase gas on credit, be sure to set aside the cash each week for the bill at the end of the month – it doesn’t become fun money!
