We think you deserve to get your full KiwiSaver Bonus this year. The good news is if you meet the eligibility criteria, all you have to do is contribute $20 each week to be on track for the max $521.43 boost from the government.
To help you out, here are some simple tips and tricks for household savings that can quickly add up to that magic $20 number each week.
Pump Up Your Tyres
No Spend Day
Clean Your Air Filter
Seal Your Fridge
The rubber seals running around the edge of your refrigerator and freezer doors are what keep the cool air from escaping. Sadly, they don’t last forever and even tiny cracks can cause leaks that lead to extra energy costs. To check if they need replacing, try this simple test: Open the door, place a five dollar note halfway inside and the close the door. If you can easily pull the note out, odds are you’ve got a leaky seal. Repeat at different spots all the way around the door to see if your seal needs replacing.
Remember, each week when you contribute $20 to your KiwiSaver, the Government will give you a free $10 bonus (up to a maximum of $521.43 each KiwiSaver year if you meet the eligibility criteria). Get started now!
