Welcome to Piggy the Bank
Back in the day...
Remember when you were a kid and you wanted to buy something so badly, you couldn't stop thinking about it? The solution was to start a piggy bank and contribute a bit of money over a period of time. When you reached your goal, it was exciting to smash open your piggy bank and finally purchase what you'd been saving for.
It's not like it used to be
These days we're opening multiple bank accounts, signing up for credit cards left, right and centre, and we're losing track of some of the specific things we're trying to save for. Whether it's rent, mortgage, baby-sitting fees, or some other obligatory payment, there's always something getting in the way of what we want for ourselves..
But it can be
Piggy the Bank brings back the old sentiment of smaller contributions over a period of time to achieve a goal. Basically you start a Piggy the Bank, decide what you want to buy, and set a comfortable amount of weekly payments. Your payments then become automatic and you’ll be able to make your purchase without seeing a giant, one-time withdrawal.
And here's the twist
So what’s the difference between starting a Goal and simply opening up a small saving account? Private offers catered for your eyes only. Piggy the Bank has partnered with some of the top retailers in the country to help you save for the things you dream of. As you continue to make payments into your Goal, retailers take notice of your progress. And they aren’t just going to give you a pat on the back; they’re going to reward you with savings and the opportunity to make a purchase before you reach your goal.
Here's an example:
Jane wants to buy a new camera so she starts a Goal and starts saving. She makes a comfortable amount of contributions over a few weeks and a camera retailer takes notice. The retailer recognizes that Jane is well on her way of achieving her goal, but instead of waiting for her to reach it, they offer her a camera at a "special" price. If she accepts the offer, she can smash open her Piggy the Bank and get a new camera. If she declines, she can continue saving and wait for more offers.
