Fintech company, PalmPay is rewarding its users for their saving habits in a new savings promotion geared towards driving financial literacy. The savings challenge will run from November 28 to December 7, 2023, and users have the chance to win one of five iPhone 15, five TECNO Phantom X2 smartphones and participate in winning part of N10 billion in Trial Cash.

“Users will earn a daily interest rate of 16 percent per annum from the Trial Cash and have the earned interest credited to their savings account as spendable money every day,” Kevin Olumese, Senior Marketing Manager, PalmPay, said.

“Of course, we understand that it’s easier to spend than to save money. However, what if you were told you could delay that gratification to buy a new smartphone and in 10 days become the owner of a brand new iPhone 15 or Phantom X2?

“The PalmPay Savings Challenge is to encourage users to delay that gratification to spend and instead save while also being rewarded,” Olumese added.

During the campaign period, users stand a chance to win if they join at least one round of challenge, verify their BVN on the PalmPay app, share the campaign with at least one friend, and keep their CashBox balance above N1,000.

Joining more rounds of challenge will increase users’ chances of winning in the savings promotion. In the final round of the challenge, lucky users with the highest trial cash will be drawn to win an iPhone 15 or Phantom X2.

What is Trial Cash?

Trial Cash is a distinctive reward designed to let you explore the benefits of the PalmPay App’s flexible savings feature. This is not real money, however, you get the spendable daily interest of 16 percent per annum for the Trial Cash.

Users can earn Trial Cash by completing daily tasks on the PalmPay App within the period of the savings challenge, such as transferring to a PalmPay account or adding money to their PalmPay account from their bank account or agent.

In both instances, you get up to N50,000 Trial Cash on your first three transfers above N1,000 or when you add money to your PalmPay wallet from your bank or agent. The higher the single transaction amount, the higher your Trial Cash reward.

You get N1,000 Trial Cash daily when you top up your airtime or buy a data bundle above N500, and N2,000 Trial Cash when you fund your betting wallet with above N2,000. Also, you are rewarded with N100 Trial Cash daily by simply visiting the PalmPay homepage at least once a day to complete your log-in task.

“We are going to build their capacities in different ways. There is going to be digital, technical, and also, skill acquisition training. With regards to finance, we are going to be giving them loans, and we are also going to be giving them grants.

“The grants are free. They are not paying us back. But, we are only giving grants to deserving SMEs who have done very well and there are price ranges for different categories.

“We do not want businesses to apply for loans and be waiting for disbursement in six weeks. Some of these businesses can fold up within those months. So, what we want, and what they have promised us, which we know they have the capacity to deliver on, is that this disbursements will be quick after the loan assessments are processed, so that we will help reduce the bottlenecks of MSMEs running from pillar to looking for funding.”
