So every month, we will be shining a spotlight on one saver, asking them questions about their savings culture and how the product is specifically helping them shape how they spend and save for future responsibilities.
This is the first in the series and it’s with Alex, a Digital Marketing strategist:
“I’m going on vacation later this year and I think I can relax knowing I’ve got me.”
What do you do?
I’m a Digital Marketing strategist
When did you start saving on Piggybank?
I started saving on Piggybank in May 2016.
What are you saving towards?
Well, I’m saving towards my CIM examination, and a vacation.
What do you spend most of your income on?
I spend a lot of my money on food and transportation. Lots of taxis.
Where is your dream vacation destination?
I’d like to visit Rome.
Within your savings period have you ever been tempted to withdraw?
Oh yes, lol.
How many times have you actually withdrawn from your savings?
I think, twice. I’ve withdrawn twice for emergencies.
How exactly has Piggybank helped you?
I recently learned how to save and I’d always saved with my bank. I can say however that Piggybank has improved my saving culture tremendously. I know this because when I try to withdraw a bit of my savings for even an emergency, I feel so much guilt. The best part is that it’s absolutely flexible and I can switch my savings plan whenever I want(depending on how broke I am that month). I’m going on vacation later this year and I think I can relax knowing I’ve got me.
There it is guys. You too can begin to save towards that dream vacation.
