Billinero Savings App Awards $1,000 Cash Prize to Monthly Winner
January 8, 2020
MERRILLVILLE, Ind. -- Billinero, an app-based savings account that gamifies banking and awards monthly and quarterly cash prizes to users who make qualifying deposits, has selected its fifth monthly $1,000 drawing winner.
Jeff Troup of Crown Point, Ind., who read about Billinero on Facebook back in October, immediately began using the app to earn entries into the monthly and quarterly drawings in hopes he would win. And after he made qualifying deposits last month, that’s exactly what happened.
Troup, an Optometrist at Longe Optical in Merrillville, Ind., said he felt victorious when he heard the news that he was chosen as the most recent winner of the $1,000 prize.
“It’s a really easy app to use, and it’s just a great way to save,” Troup explained. “It’s the same excitement you get when you play the lottery, but you don’t have to spend any money for the chance to win. You just save your own money, and you still have chances to win.”
Chris Campbell, a Senior Partner at Centier Bank, the financial institution powering Billinero, said Billinero is a prime example on the future of incentivized apps that are designed to help people who use them.
“We rely heavily on our smartphones these days—we use apps to create better exercise and eating habits, and other apps that help us learn new languages and skills, so why not have an app that can help create healthy savings habits, and teach you how to save your money?” Campbell said. “The cash prizes are an incredible motivator to Billinero’s users, and people are able to play for a chance to win at no risk, unlike gambling, which requires you to spend money in the hopes you win big.”
