Isn’t it ironic how even these days when so much is done digitally, the places we put our money for safekeeping overwhelm us with charges and excessive fees? PalmPay, a new pan-African fintech startup that boasts TECNO Mobile as an investor, is looking to change all that.
Currently, PalmPay has a Super Easter promotion live where you can pay less and get more on your airtime purchases using discount coupons. We thought this would be a great time to introduce you to PalmPay and walk you through how you too can claim and save.
We’ve got an exclusive offer for the first 5,000 TechBlog readers to make this walkthrough more exciting. Simply follow this link and enter your details, then download the PalmPay app on Android or iOS and you’ll have a cool N100 sitting in your mobile wallet that you can use to follow along.PalmPay
You can use the PalmPay app to send and receive money, buy airtime and pay for bills, and the best thing is that you are rewarded for every transaction you make with PalmPoints that you can use to get discounts on future payments. You can also earn N300 in PalmPoints for every friend that you invite to try the app.
And with a Mobile Money Operator license from the CBN you can be assured that the platform is safe and secure.
How to get up to 20% discount on your airtime purchase
Now onto the guide. This Easter, you can save money on your airtime purchases with the use of a new PalmPay feature: airtime coupons.
You can claim a new coupon every day and get an extra discount on your airtime from now until the 17th of April. That means you pay less and you get more!
New users have access to a special one-off coupon that will give you N40 off N200. And existing customers can choose between a variety of daily discounts.
How to claim a coupon:
1. Make sure your PalmPay app is updated to the latest version
2. Click on the Super Easter banner on the homepage of your PalmPay app
3. Scroll through and tap ‘’Claim’’ to claim the coupon of your choice. You can claim one coupon every day.
4. Go to buy airtime.
5. Input the phone number and amount you want to buy and click next.
6. The coupon that you claimed will automatically appear on the next page. Choose between earning/using PalmPoints and using your coupon, and submit the transaction.
7. Daily coupons expire at midnight the same day you claimed. You can claim another one tomorrow.
