One question that is sure to send chills down anyone’s spine is:
Kumusta savings mo? (How are your savings?)
If that question had you shookt, you are not alone.
According to the World Bank, 66% of Filipinos do not have savings. Scary, right? Which is why recently, GCash launched their #PlsSaveMe campaign featuring real people struggling to save: a doctor who can’t save her savings, a lawyer who can’t justify her lack of it, an eyebrow tattoo artist with no permanent savings, among others. Online posts and tweets poured in from around the country; even ex-PBB Housemate Robi Domingo confessed to spending all his prize money within a week.
This time, GCash wants #PlsSaveMe to go beyond the posts. This October 31 World Savings Day, GCash is challenging Filipinos to face our financial fears (and save our broke souls, tbh) by opening a savings account. GCash offers one of the most competitive savings accounts in the country with interest rates 12x higher than the country’s #1 bank. No tricks, only treats. You only need 1 valid ID to open an account; no minimum deposit required. Just download the GCash app and begin saving anytime, anywhere.
Join this movement by tuning in to the GCash World Savings Day telecast, the whole day on October 31, 2019 on Rappler, Facebook Live, and the GCash Facebook page (www.facebook.com/gcashofficial).
