- UBA Begins Cashless December Campaign
A pan-African financial services group, United Bank for Africa Plc, has announced the commencement of its annual end-of-year campaign, Cashless December.
The lender said this year’s edition, with the theme ‘25 Days of Awesomeness,’ would reward “cashless living”.
The Group Head, Consumer Banking, UBA, Dr. Yinka Adedeji, was quoted as saying, “Going cashless this season is not only convenient but safe. We are interested in the total well-being 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 detecting anything unusual this season and beyond. We are delighted to offer our customers an awesome experience in these 25 days.”
According to the statement, 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.
It 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.
“The promo is from December 1 to 25. 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.”
