Saving Money has neever been this easy with Cebuana Lhuillier Micro Savings!

Tuesday, August 30, 2022

Even when I was a kid, I was taught by my parents to save money. No matter how much it is, it is better than nothing. This practice became a habbit up until now that I am a grown up. Whenever I need to buy something for myself or a gift for someone, I save for it and the experience is very rewarding.

From saving coins to piggy banks, now I am looking for more ways to save money so that I can buy something out of all my savings. 

I am now eyeing this Xiaomi Pad 5 that I am planning to give for my Mom so that she can easily check her Facebook and watch videos online as well since this has a wider screen, she can easily browse online. Now, what I need is a microsavings account where I can save my extra money without going through the hassle of requirements, opening account fee and more. 

I came across this photo of Cebuan Lhuillier Micro Savings on Facebook and decided to give it a try since I am also familiar with most of their services. We have tried pawning my Mom's jewelries here in the past to pay for my tuition during my college days plus we also gonto Cebuana Lhuillier when we send money to our relatives in the province. So, I am quite sure that this micro savings is another amazing offering of Cebuana that is perfect for every Juan like me. 

Good things, a few steps from where I live there's a branch of Cebuana Lhuillier and I opened an account.  Cebuana Lhuillier Micro Savings aims to provide easier banking access to Filipinos. It is a product of Cebuana Lhuillier bank, the banking arm of Cebuana Lhuillier. It is a regular savings account but doesn’t require maintaining balance. Account holders can deposit and withdraw anywhere at their most convenient time with Cebuana Lhuillier’s network of more than 3000 branches nationwide. As a Micro Savings account holder, you can also pay cashless using your card in any of 350,000 Unionpay and Bancnet accredited retail stores and withdraw in any of  21,000+ Bancnet ATM nationwide.

Micro Savings provides Filipinos with a more convenient and affordable means to save their hard-earned money.  Filipino citizens as young as 7 years old are qualified to open a savings account, which can be considered as a “kids savings” or “junior savings” account in banks.
