The Fun Part Of Earning While You Save
Apart from the referral bonuses you stand a chance to earn, Alat offers the best interest rate on savings; three times the standard bank rate!
All you need to do is pull the bull by the horn and start off a simple automated savings plan which would earn you a 10% annual interest for your total savings. This will not only make you some free money but motivate you to save more. All you need to do, is set a savings’ goal in your profile and begin saving. The longer you save, the bigger your interest.
How To Get 10% Interest For Saving
To get 10% interest for saving your money, you need to set a savings’ goal that will last up to 12 months without ending or deleting your goals. I know, it might seem difficult but think about the long term goal and interests to earn.
If for any reason you are unable to meet your 12months savings goal or you’ve set a shorter goal duration, you still get yourself an interest, which will be calculated based on how long you’ve saved. You lose your interest if you decide to delete your savings goal.
