Here’s the lowdown: 

The Savings Target: The challenge is for all of us to save up to ₦250,000 by December 24th. That means saving ₦2,500 daily for 100 days starting on the 16th of September. Trust us, your December vibe is going to be off the charts!

The rules of the challenge

The rules are simple. If you already bank with Sparkle, all you need to do is: 

1. Create a Stash 

Create a new stash and give it a unique name – for example, “Mimi’s Stash-a-ton” or “Femsky’s Stash-a-ton”. Yes, Stash-a-ton must be in the name so it’s easy for Sparkle to track your savings progress and reward you for your effort. If you don’t have a Sparkle account, click here to download the app. 

2. Start stashing ₦2,500 daily or as you like 

Remember the goal is to save up to ₦250,000 by December 24th so this means you’ll need to save ₦2,500 daily. So, once you’ve created your stash and named it, all you need to do is add your ₦2,500 every day. In fact, you can decide to stash anyhow you like, it’s totally up to you, just keep the end goal in mind. You can stash 5k daily, 50k weekly or the ₦250,000 all at once if you’re feeling like Odogwu. Your stash, your way! Just be sure to not break your stash. 

3. Win Big  

Now to the good part. If you’re one of the top 4 savers who stay committed, stashing ₦2,500 daily or as you like without breaking your stash, you’re looking at an extra ₦250,000 Christmas bonus. Santa’s got nothing on us! And guess what? Sparkle has a bunch of other goodies up for grabs too, like data, spa vouchers, headphones, weekly cash prizes and more, just for being part of the action. The top 4 Winners will be revealed just a day before Christmas – talk about a holiday treat!

Sparkle Stash-a-ton is all about saving together and reaching a goal of ₦250,000 by December. That’s a lot of sparkle for your Christmas plans!
