If time is a luxury you don’t have, never include a trip to the bank on your me-time.
Going to the bank these days just to deposit or transfer money can feel like eternity. It can take up to an hour and eat up those rare, precious moments you have for yourself. Expect a long waiting time when your banking errands fall on a payday, when there are not enough tellers to attend to everyone, or their machines are off-line.
When any of these scenarios happens, what you initially think is a quick stopover at the bank will become a protracted one and you’ll end up regretting squeezing in bank errands into your free time especially when you’re a full-time mom or an overloaded employee.
Imagine the many wonderful things you can do for a whole kid-free hour (if you’re a mom) instead of standing (or sitting) in line getting fidgety and impatient at the bank. You can indulge in a relaxing massage for a full hour or cut it short so you can spend the other half hour sipping coffee and enjoying the peace in a cozy café; or watch one episode of your favorite K-drama on Netflix uninterrupted; or just catch up on sleep.
In a nutshell, there are a lot of other worthwhile things you can do instead of wasting time in line at the bank if you switch to a digital wallet such as GCash for your banking errands, particularly for money transfers.
With GCash, the country’s leading mobile wallet, you can send money fast and easy anytime, anywhere with just a few taps on the mobile phone.
GCash’s money transfer features also allows users to transfer money from one bank account to another in the speed of a text message. All you have to do is to link your bank savings accounts and debit cards to your GCash account by keying in pertinent account or card information.
When you realize the convenience of using a digital wallet for your bank errands, like 20 million other Filipinos who use GCash, you’ll soon stop enduring the long queues at banks and get extra hours for your rare me-time instead.
