Following these simple tips will help you save on your monthly bills. 

Search for the best online deals: online price comparison tools are very useful for finding products with the best value for money. This is a quick and easy step that will lead to significant savings.

Avoid paying interest: interest can eat away at your money. Fortunately, it is possible to eliminate it. Therefore, we recommend setting up direct debit payments in the same account where you receive your paycheck each month. This approach will give you greater control over your finances. 

Create a savings account: at BBVA, we recommend transferring the money you save into a savings account. A good option is the BBVA Goals Account as there are no transfer fees or charges. You can open the account via the BBVA app or bbva.es. To start using it, simply name your savings goal and set a target amount and date.
