Stanbic Bank Uganda and the Mandela Group are making it easier and more convenient for customers to enjoy cashless purchases using their debit or credit cards at any CaféJavas, CityOil, Savers or City Tyres outlets. The exciting “Go Cashless” campaign kicks off today, with a 30-day promotion where customers will stand a chance to win amazing prizes.
Speaking at the press launch, Roselyn Najjuma, Stanbic’s Head of Products said, “We are pleased to be partnering with the Mandela Group to provide customers with greater flexibility and a seamless way to make their purchases at their favourite Mandela Group outlets. By using any debit or credit card, customers can confidently carry out transactions without the inconvenience of carrying cash.”
“We are excited about our partnership with Stanbic Bank, for the next 30 days every purchase of Ugx 50,000 and above made at any CaféJavas, CityOil, Savers or City Tyres outlet using one’s Credit or Debit Card will be rewarded with a guaranteed prize on the spot. Once you complete the transaction, you’ll be given free shopping vouchers,” Venkatesh Kumar, the General Manager of Mandela Group said, commenting on the campaign.
How does it work?
When making purchases at any CaféJavas, CityOil, Savers or City Tyres outlet, simply present your Debit or Credit Card. It will be swiped by an attendant using a Point of Sale machine where you will be required to enter your PIN (Personal Identification Number) privately to complete the transaction. Once the transaction is carried out (usually within seconds), you will receive a receipt confirming the amount of money withdrawn from your bank account, as well as an SMS message in your mobile phone confirming the transaction. This goes a long way in helping you keep track of your expenditure.
Is it secure?
Yes, it is very secure. First, you no longer have to move around carrying lots of cash. In addition, the exact amount of money is paid to the CaféJavas, CityOil, Savers or City Tyres outlet. This means you no longer have to spend time waiting for your change to be verified when paying with cash.
How convenient is it?
Imagine trying to conduct a transaction, only to realise you don’t have sufficient cash on you. You’d be forced to look around for an ATM or bank in order to withdraw what you need. Sometimes there could be a long queue at the ATM, or it could be a considerable distance away. Even worse, the ATM could be non-functional, and this could spell doom.
With your debit/ credit card, your transactions can be quickly carried out at whatever time of day or night. This means you have more time to focus on other issues. Hence, your card gives you greater flexibility, convenience, and safety.
Why should I get my debit/ credit card today?
For the next 30 days, every purchase of Ugx 50,000 and above made at any CaféJavas, CityOil, Savers or City Tyres outlet using your Credit/Debit Card will be rewarded with a GUARANTEED prize, on the spot. Once you complete the transaction, you’ll be given shopping vouchers FREE.
