They say “money can’t buy happiness.” But did you know that saving money can actually make you feel good, proud, independent and equipped to realize your life goals? These are just some of the results revealed in the new Ally Bank Money-and-Happiness Survey.

Co-hosted with Bankrate, this month’s Twitter chat will discuss the findings from this survey, which looks at the connection between saving and happiness. During our TweetChat, you’ll have the opportunity to share ideas and get insight on how banking can relate to feelings of well-being. We’ll raise questions such as: How does saving make you happy? What makes people happier: eating healthy, working out, or saving? And which would most people rather have: a higher income or higher savings balance? The answers may surprise you.

Plus, RSVP below and you’ll have a chance to win one of two $100 Amazon gift cards!
