How It Works

A new home is one of the biggest purchases you can make. This plan will help you be better prepared when the time comes.1

Start saving and earn a reward in three easy steps:

  1. Open an account and save a minimum of $100 a month for 36 months.
  2. Contact Citizens Bank to help you find the right mortgage, and you’ll also learn about ways to check your credit while you save.
  3. Receive $1,000 credit toward the closing costs on your Citizens Bank mortgage.

While this home savings plan is designed to help you get started, you may need to save more to achieve your goals. Use our online calculator to determine the right home savings plan for you.

You must separately qualify, be approved and close on a mortgage loan with us within three years after the end of the three-year savings period.

2 Unlimited in-branch transactions. Reg D limits certain types of transactions to no more than 6 per calendar month, including: telephone transfers, online transfers, overdraft protection transfers, automatic interest transfers from the savings account, any pre-authorized or automatic debits, outgoing wire transfers. If you exceed these limits 3 times or more during any consecutive 12-calendar month period, you will no longer be eligible for the Bonus/Credit and we will, as applicable, transfer the funds in your savings account to a savings account that does not pay interest. We may, however, transfer your funds sooner if you significantly exceed these transfer limits in any one month.
