Digital banking has gradually made its way in our lives and though it is still not a mode for the masses, the growth has a steady pace. I was also one of the opponents in the beginning, but all fears turn into smoke as soon as I got a first-hand experience ofÂ Konnect by HBL. With the fast pace city life, managing a hectic schedule and maintaining work-life balance is a Herculean task. Job, home and daily chores leave hardly any room for social engagements and then there are finances. So what to do?
Being a workaholic with a 9 to 5 job and then work assignments to attend, it was a struggle for me to take time out and visit the bank for withdrawals or deposits. And letâ€™s not start about the ordeal of standing in a queue for your turn. I was encouraged by my colleagues to try the app â€˜Konnectâ€™ by HBL and manage my cash flow within my comfort zone and voila! Iâ€™ve tasted freedom. Now I donâ€™t have to go to ATMs to always carry cash. I use the app to pay bills, recharge mobile credit, donate or make institutional payments.
At one instance I had to pay for some rental services and it was hard to figure out a way, the digital payment system of Konnect saved me from the hassle and then I thought about exploring this super application some more.
I can now be completely carefree as the application has come to my rescue whenever Iâ€™ve needed itMany a time I ran out of cash during my shopping spree or satisfied my hunger pangs at wee hours without fretting about how much money was in my purse. Thatâ€™s not all, I was wandering in the mall on my day off from work and found out that the Sonic is out. I was eager to watch it then and there, however, judging by the anticipation of the movie, it was highly unlikely that I would be able to reach the cinema, buy a ticket (if any seats will be available by that time) and catch the show on time. That day I bought movie tickets through Konnect and guess what, I was so happy after watching the movie that I bought a few more for the next weekend for my nephew and niece. Life canâ€™t get any better!
I started with an economy package but now my friends and I have availed all their packages. With a daily transaction limit of 25k to 50k, the subscription ranges are quite affordable and thereâ€™s one for foodies as well and Iâ€™m always up for good food with minimum damage to the pocket. Thatâ€™s not all, a get-together with friends and night stays have become more exciting now as I can avail so many amazing discounts and deals. Late-night binge watching is more fun as I no more worry about getting up to find something to munch on.
When everything is a click away, sometimes one tends to spend a little carelessly but the app helped me to keep a check on my savings as well. I choose a budget-friendly package and then the offers, alliances and discounts make it efficient to stay within my limits.
It also gives a sense of empowerment and entitlement when you feel youâ€™re driving your own life. I am not restricted by inconsequential problems like planning about how much money will I need in a week and how to be ready for emergencies round-the-clock. This leads to the million-dollar question that how can you also be carefree like me? Hereâ€™s the answer:
