Billinero Awards $10,000 to Quarterly Drawing Winner, Frontline Healthcare Worker
October 14, 2020
Billinero, an app-based savings account that awards cash prizes in monthly and quarterly drawings to select users, has named Rodilito Jamela of La Porte, Ind., as its quarterly $10,000 winner.
Jamela, a nurse at an area hospital, said he began using Billinero as a way to set up an easy and convenient savings account that he could build slowly. Jamela said the prize money could not have come at a better time. He is preparing to move out of state to be closer to family.
“I came to the United States three years ago from the Philippines, and I’m the breadwinner of my family—I’m paying for my nephews to go to school back in the Philippines,” he said. “I’m so surprised that I won! I can’t believe I was able to win $10,000 while saving my own money.”
Jamela said his favorite feature of the Billinero app is the ability to set up the account in a matter of minutes, without having to make a trip to the bank.
Chris Campbell, Executive Vice President of Billinero, said the app was designed for people to easily invest in their futures in a fun and rewarding way.
“We’ve seen this year how sudden financial emergencies can come out of nowhere, and our hope is that more users will build their Billinero savings accounts so they can feel financially prepared for anything that comes their way in the future,” Campbell said. “Having a savings account brings a sense of security, as well as keeps you on track to achieve your financial goals.”
