Christmas Club Savings
An American Bank & Trust Christmas Club account is a great way to save for your holiday expenses. This account offers an affordable savings method. Create your own method of contributing to your Christmas Club account. You may set up weekly or monthly automatic Christmas Club deposits from your checking account, you may direct your contributions through your internet banking transfer system (both accounts must be held at American Bank & Trust), or you may come in and make your weekly or monthly deposits in person. You may also take advantage of our Bank My Change feature, contributing every time you make a debit card purchase from your American Bank & Trust checking account, where the “change” will be deposited into your Christmas Club account. You can’t lose, only save with our American Bank & Trust Christmas Club Account.
