Billinero, an app-based savings account that awards cash prizes in monthly and quarterly drawings to select users, has named Jameka Williams of Merrillville, Ind., as the most recent monthly winner.
Williams, a real estate agent and adjunct financial accounting professor at Indiana University Northwest, began using Billinero in 2019 after hearing about the savings app through Centier Bank. She downloaded the app because she thought it would be a fun, secondary way to save money.
“Multiple savings accounts has always been one of my personal finance strategies,” Williams said. “The idea that I can earn entries to win money through saving was exciting, so after a while I began to make the maximum number of entries each month. I can’t believe I won!”
Chris Campbell, Executive Vice President for Billinero, said Williams is a great example of those who use Billinero as a secondary savings account.
“Having multiple savings accounts for different expenses and assigning a savings goal for each account is one of the best ways to plan for the future,” Campbell explained. “Jameka knows a thing or two about finance, and her efforts have paid off!”
Williams, who also serves as deputy treasurer for Gary Community Schools Corporation, said personal finance is an area of health and wellbeing that consumers should always consider.
“When it comes to saving, what I always say is—you have to start somewhere,” she said. “You never know when you’ll need those funds. I encourage a lot of people to save. I’m really passionate about financial education, and I believe staying consistent and creating the habit is the best way to get to your goals.”
Billinero’s next $1,000 monthly drawing, as well as the $1,000 quarterly drawing will take place on March 31, 2022. Users can download the app from the App and Google Play Stores to sign up and start earning chances to win.
