Which Version Of You Are You When It Comes To Handling Money This Valentine’s Day?

Valentines

Ah, Valentine’s Day, is the one day of the year when love is in the air, and the scent of roses competes with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee at every corner within and without the country.

It’s the day when Cupid takes a break from his archery practice to play matchmaker, and even the most stoic individuals find themselves caught in the crossfire of heart-shaped arrows, sweet words flowing, and smile reigning.

It’s a day where romance is not just encouraged but practically mandatory, and those who dare to resist the allure of love are met with a barrage of chocolate-covered guilt trips.

In the grand theater of affection, Valentine’s Day is the spotlight moment for couples to showcase their love in the most extravagant and, at times, borderline absurd ways. Some will make money while some will be left with yawning pockets.

Creativity knows no bounds, from heart-shaped pizzas to candlelit dinners under the stars. Social media becomes a battleground for the most epic declarations of love, with couples engaging in a fierce competition to outdo each other in the art of romantic gestures.

Forget about roses; in the age of technology, a well-timed heart emoji can be just as effective in melting hearts but the fact remains; money has to be spent. When it comes to spending money during Valentine’s Day, Absa Bank continues to fulfill its promise of financial wellness by educating and offering solutions to help you.

The bank has introduced four kinds of people who speak different money love languages on a day such as this. This is part of the lender’s promise of educating its customers on financial wellness while offering solutions that help customers make informed money decisions. Here are the people:

The Rainmaker:

This person makes it rain, not water from the skies but money. He/she is always ready to spoil the squad “unprovoked.” Have you ever met the kind of a person who will give you money just because you called them some “good names” like “Chairman, Mkubwa, Baba Yao, Mkuu, Malkia…?” This is the person I am talking about. The rainmaker is that person who gets money and becomes “mad”, goes on a spending spree, and becomes “normal” as soon as the money runs out. Are you this person?

The Penny Pincher:

This is a “saver.” He or she is always ready to save a coin and is always looking for offers in various shops and stalls. They do not like spending money without a plan, not that they are stingy, but they understand the value of money and are always ready to save it every time they get an opportunity. They are always on the lookout for discounts, offers, and additions such as free delivery. For this kind of you, you probably need to get an Absa Credit Card which comes with zero transaction cost, saving you that extra penny, and comes with great deals from partnerships they have entered with Samsung, Sarova Hotels, Vivo, or Lintons Beauty.

The Budgeter

The Budgeter is a strict spender. They budget for every purchase they make. They are not extravagant. They like to plan for everything and they like knowing where every single coin they have is going and doing. These are people who will ask you questions like; How much do you want? What do you want the money for? Is it necessary? When will you refund my money?

Team YOLO

These are Wazee wa sherehe! They only live once. There is no tomorrow for them. There is just today. This is a group of people who spend everything as it comes. To them, once money comes today, it has to be used today.

Who are you this Valentine’s Day?

So, who are you this day of love? Are you the Rainmaker? The Penny Pincher? The Budgeter? Or Team YOLO? Who are you? I think you should be a budgeter and take advantage of Absa Bank Kenya’s digital savings account that gives you 10 percent of your savings annually.
