I was doing my research online for resources that I can use to implement my Six Accounts strategy and I ended up finding this bank from Pittsburgh – PNC Bank and its special announcement: PNC Bank Announces New Accounts To Help Customers Save, Manage Money and Avoid Fees. And after going through the details on how PNC Bank intends to help their customers save money, I just have to share!
What’s So Special About This Announcement And With PNC Bank?
Though it’s quite common for you to say that Banks have new accounts introduced every now and then and there’s really nothing special about it!
I do agree on that but this time round, what PNC Bank has done is something quite different (personally this is what I feel as compared to what I am having in Singapore)! This is because PNC Bank listens to what their customers and consumers wanted through their research and thus the new accounts are created. And this is what they wanted from their usual banking:
The Assistance From The Bank to:
- Manage Their Money
- Avoid Mistakes
- Use Credit Wisely
- Get Rewards
Just basing on Managing of money and the use of Credit wisely, it’s not always an easy task but somehow I feel that PNC Bank is beginning to do a good job on it with their Virtual Wallet system and its incorporation into the new accounts.

A Bit Of Highlights On Their Virtual Wallet System And How It Ties To The Six Accounts Strategy
I mention in my previous post that to have proper management of your money, it would be good for you to implement the Six Accounts Strategy and have at least six individual accounts for different purposes. The main issue with this strategy that I can see, is where and how to have these Six Accounts so that you can get started… This is why I decide to do my research online for such resources.
And I found there’s such a resource – The Virtual Wallet from PNC Bank!
The fact that I like Virtual Wallet is that it’s one main checking account that allow you to perform 3 different functions at one time:
Thus with Virtual Wallet, it seems like the Six Accounts Strategy can still be implemented with ease.
And it’s also comes with the calendar function for you to monitor your bills and payday. You can also use this function to set up dates that you intend to pamper yourself – with good eating out or shopping. Lastly, there’s also the Wishlist function that you can use to take note of the things that you really want to buy and you can start saving up!
Now… I wish I do have such banking services in Singapore in the coming future as well! For my friends who are Pittsburgh, I do hope you can check out the new accounts and the Virtual Wallet service from PNC Bank.
