Billinero Celebrates One Year Since Launch, Awards $1,000 to First-Time Home Buyer

September 8, 2020

When 25-year-old Alexandra Kaminski embarked on her homebuying journey, she heard about an app-based savings account that awards cash prizes to its users in a game-like approach, and decided to open her account.

Fast forward to one year later, Kaminski closed on her first home, and was also named Billinero’s $1,000 monthly winner. She was shocked when she heard the news.

“I opened a Billinero account because it was an easy way to stash away money for unexpected expenses that come with owning a home,” Kaminski explained. “And now I have $1,000 extra to pay for improvements I want to make on my house when I move in. I can’t believe it!”

Kaminski, an Accountant at ArcelorMittal, resides in Hammond, Indiana. She recommends Billinero because it’s an easy and quick way to open a savings account in minutes, right from your smartphone.

“I loved that I could transfer money and not worry about touching it, and I really wanted to win the prize,” she said.

Chris Campbell, Executive Vice President of Billinero, said hearing winners’ stories is a rewarding part of working for the prize-linked savings app.

“We’re so excited that we could be part of such a big moment in Alex’s life, as we have been for over 15 winners in the past year since Billinero launched,” Campbell said. “Saving feels like it can be out of reach for many people, which is why we encourage users to make qualifying deposits on a regular basis and reward them with chances to win cash prizes for doing so.”

Billinero’s next $10,000 quarterly drawing is taking place on Sept. 30. Users can earn up to 36 entries into the quarterly drawing when they make a qualifying deposit.
