For the 13th year, Zions Bank has partnered with nationally acclaimed financial advisor and radio personality Dave Ramsey to bring Financial Peace University Classes to at least 28 locations along the Wasatch front, and I’m excited to announce Utah Sweet Savings gets to be a part of this amazing program! My husband and I will be attending weekly classes starting on September 15, and, I’ll get to share with you my experience! I’ve long been a fan of Dave Ramsey, and listen to him every day when I go to pick up my kids from school. I missed his daily advice over the summer, and started listening to his podcast while I was at home, too.
The nine-week course features weekly lessons that help individuals eliminate debt, save for the future, create positive cash flow and build wealth. Topics also include the role of insurance, retirement and college planning, real estate and mortgages. Since 2003, Zions Bank has supported Financial Peace University classes with more than 55,000 participants from Utah and Idaho. After participating in the program, the average household reports paying off $5,300 in debt and adding $2,700 in savings within three months.
Zions Bank hosts Financial Peace University as part of its Eliminate Needless Debt (END) program to support responsible spending and saving habits. All program participants receive an entry in a sweepstakes for the chance to win $1,000 deposited to a Zions Bank Money Market Account to use as an emergency fund savings account.
Tuition for the full course is $105 per household, including children 19 and younger, and provides a lifetime membership to repeat the course in the future. Participants also receive a comprehensive workbook, an envelope system for organizing cash, an audio CD set of all the lessons and access to additional online lessons and tools. The first lesson, called “Super Saving,” is free to those who want to learn more before continuing the full course.
