January is over, yes, but it seems money is “not planning to come back soon” for most of us.
We Kenyans want to save some coins whenever we go buy an item but not when performing an Mpesa transaction. But did you know that you can actually save while transacting on Mpesa? Just a few tricks here:
Here is how to grant yourself a ‘DISCOUNT’ while withdrawing on Mpesa:
To withdraw 200 costs Ksh27
Alternatively: Withdraw 100 @10, Then another 100 @10
Total= 20. SAVE 7bob.
To withdraw 5,000 costs you Ksh 66
Alternatively: Withdraw 2500 @27, then another 2500 @27
Total= 54. SAVE 12bob
To withdraw 12000 costs you Ksh 159
Alternatively: Withdraw 10,000 @110, then the remaining 2000 @27
Total= 137. SAVE 22bob.
