Back to School Shopping: The new school terms for the new academic year have kicked off.
As is likely to happen, long queues are being witnessed at the banks as parents battle to settle their kids’ school fees in time, or withdraw monies for books and uniforms, or apply for salary advances. In any given instance, this is bound to be a tedious and time consuming task.
But there are easier ways that parents can go around such inconveniences. For example, unlike previous years, this year, parents can settle all their school fees from the comfort of their mobile phones.
At the same time, they no longer need to queue at the bank in order to withdraw money for shopping or at the ATM. This is because shopping can now be paid for using Visa Cards.
To begin with, you need to get the MCoop Cash mobile app. This app is available for download on any app store.
This easy-to-use app will allow you to access your account balances, transfer cash to mobile phone money platforms such as MPesa and Airtel Money, withdraw cash or make payments such as fees and bills for books and uniforms for free.
At the same time, you carry out your child’s back to school shopping by using Co-op Bank Visa Card. Using your Co-op Visa Cards, you will be ale to pay for goods and services at zero additional charges. This also means that you will not need to go to the ATM to withdraw money, so that you go shopping for your child in places like supermarkets and bookstores. You will also be able to get discounts too. For instance, parents are receiving a 10 per cent discount when they pay for their back to school books and stationery at the Text Book Centre using the Co-op Visa Cards.
