  • Link your savings bank account, or open one through us digitally with one of our banking partners.
  • Answer a few basic questions to help us to get to know you. For example, your name, age, and contact details. We'd also love to know your preferences so we can create a personalized experience so that your Appreciate account works the way you want it to.
