Pan-African financial services group, United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, has commenced its annual end of year campaign tagged ‘Cashless December.’
A statement by the bank disclosed that the 2016 edition of the campaign has been themed ‘25 Days of Awesomeness’ and it seeks to reward cashless living.
UBA has rolled out prizes to be won by customers who use its internet banking or cards. Some of the gifts items up for grabs are cash, Beats by Dre headphones, DSTV explorer with subscription, loads of airtime and shopping vouchers.
To participate, a customer needs to use internet banking for funds transfer, airtime top up and bill payment.
Non cash transactions at the ATM and in-store/online card usage will also make a customer eligible.
New customers who wish to participate can download the UBA internet banking app from app stores or obtain a UBA debit or prepaid card instantly at any business office. The promo is from December 1 to December 25, 2016.
Now in its fourth season, UBA Cashless December initiative considers the fact that the increase in economic activities towards the end of the year predisposes people to cash thereby putting their money and personal safety at risk.
Speaking on the promo, UBA’s Group Head of Consumer Banking, Dr Yinka Adedeji, stated that, “Going cashless this season is not only convenient but safe.
“We are interested in the total wellbeing of our customers and want to ensure that every form of risk associated with moving cash is eliminated.
“To further safeguard our customers’ transactions, we have built in world class security tools to ensure round the clock transaction monitoring and quickly detect anything unusual this season and beyond. We are delighted to offer our customers an awesome experience in these 25 days.”
