Sara hit the Jackpot - and it couldn’t have been at a better time!

We’ve added this new feature within the context of today’s world, where inflation and low interest rates are undeniable, and people want to grow their money with minimum risk. With the Jackpot, you get 3 chances to win €10,000 every month, by simply using the app. You can learn more about the feature and how it works here

To kick-off the celebrations, we’ve announced our first Jackpot winner live, during bunq Update 20. Sara left the beautiful Amsterdam based DeLaMar theater with €10,000 in her bunq account!

We’ve recently reached out to her to see how she feels about the initiative. We were also curious if the money got invested in a savings account, a very fun plan or…well, the options are endless.

Let’s just hear from her🙌

“I think it’s a really interesting idea. I think many corporations spend this much or more on a single marketing campaign, so instead, this is giving back to the users while building some buzz around bunq. I've definitely told a good amount of people about it!

In regards to the money, it was obviously much appreciated and came at a great time! I had some medical bills that I paid off, but most of the money went towards my student loans back in the US. Now to the fun part - I did treat myself to the Dyson Airwrap. It’s something I’ve always wanted, but could never justify spending the money on. It was a really nice splurge, and my hair’s looking fabulous. I will also do a nice Michelin star dinner with my boyfriend when we go on holiday next month. 

So all in all, it has helped me a lot to reduce the debt I have and treat myself a little bit too.” 

Sara was our first Jackpot winner. Since then, the list got longer, and it keeps on growing. You can find it here (P.S.: we can’t reveal actual names, so you’ll find Together nicknames instead). 

You could be next🌈

Check out all the ways in which you can increase your chances to hit the Jackpot right here, and spend the money on whatever Makes Life Easy for you.
