United Bank for Africa has announced the commencement of its annual end of year campaign, ‘Cashless December’ which lasts December 1-25, 2016.
Announcing the commencement of the promo in Lagos, the bank’s group head, consumer banking, Dr. Yinka Adedeji, who christened this year’s edition as “25 Days of Awesomeness”, said it seeks to reward cashless living.
He said customers who use UBA internet banking or cards stand a chance to win amazing prizes such as cash, Beats by Dre headphones, DSTV explorer with subscription, loads of airtime and shopping vouchers.
“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,” he said.
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.
Now in its fourth season, UBA’s 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.
