Club savings accounts first started as Christmas club accounts. Banks and credit unions started offering Christmas club accounts to help consumers save for holiday expenses through teller deposits or automated transfers.

Banks and credit unions continue this practice and offer a variety of club accounts tailored to specific annual events such as taxes, birthdays, vacation and holidays.
