Billinero Savings App Awards $1,000 to Monthly Winner
October 14, 2020
Billinero, an app-based savings account that gamifies banking and awards monthly and quarterly cash prizes to select users, has named Michele Pickering of Portage, Ind., as its 14th monthly $1,000 winner.
Pickering has been using Billinero to save for over a year while simultaneously paying down credit card debt. The prize money, she said, will give her the ability to get out of credit card debt completely.
“This feels really good—I am finally free of credit card debt!” she exclaimed. “I’ve been working really hard to pay it off, but also using Billinero to make sure I still had some savings in case an emergency came up. I really like how easy it is to use, and how the app helps me save a little at a time to build an emergency fund.”
Chris Campbell, Executive Vice President of Billinero, said users like Michele have the right idea when it comes to saving.
“Most of us have turned to credit cards or loans at one point or another, and it can be quite daunting to pay off a large sum that you may have acquired,” Campbell said. “It’s still vital to have accessible savings for things that come up—like home or auto repairs, or an emergency expense. Billinero helps people save, which means they’re better prepared for those financial surprises.”
Billinero’s next monthly $1,000 drawing takes place on Oct. 31. Users can earn up to 36 chances to win with qualifying deposits. For more information about Billinero, go to Billinero.com.
