Listen to this article

As a millennial, I have largely experienced a world that just can’t do without technology! While many may call it a ‘bane’, my point of view is completely different. We’ve got everything at our fingertips - from ordering food to booking cabs, to shopping and the like. Not to forget, banking, which is such an integral part of our lives (more so, with digital transactions being at the forefront).

While my parents may not agree with most things I say, they certainly agree that the banking industry has evolved. My father recalls those days when he had to take leave from work to finish his bank tasks. Those serpentine queues and laidback banking services were definitely not appreciated. Every time he returned home from the bank, there would be incessant ranting over endless cups of tea.

 

Fortunately, we’ve come a long way since then - because I have NEVER experienced this in my life. Digital banking has made life much simpler, and it’s pretty easy to keep track of my finances. And I think with the pandemic taking over our lives, it has truly served as a blessing in disguise.

Although there is a sea of digital banking options available today, it is crucial to zero in on the right bank. Why? Because you could otherwise face challenges, just the way I did earlier.

The roadblocks that came my way

Most of us utilise technology to make life seamless, but what’s the point if you have to download countless apps to get multiple things done? Sounds tedious, right?

 

Technology should make our experience seamless and add convenience. Apps should have easy UI/UX experience.

Besides this, most apps had a rather complicated UI and UX, which isn’t something everyone is familiar with. There were multiple pages for different tasks, and, not to mention, there wasn’t any synchronisation between them and the other pages. It almost felt as if I was talking to a different brand.

The other challenge is security. Contrary to the perception that banks must have stringent security and privacy, I faced something altogether different. In fact, I spent sleepless nights due to a phishing attack (and trust me, the threats didn’t stop thereafter). It is crucial to ensure that my information remains secure and safe!

Here’s why I zeroed in on the Airtel Payments Bank

I signed up with Airtel Payments Bank only a few months ago, and I truly think this is the best decision I’ve made (on the insistence of a close friend). The best part is that I can bank from any part of the country without having to go physically to get access to their products and services (helps even more during a pandemic).

Trust me; it’s as simple as downloading the Airtel Thanks App and moving to Airtel Payments Bank. You can literally enjoy a whole new banking experience in your palms.

Honestly, its ease-of-use is its biggest advantage, I’d say! There’s just one app that takes care of all your needs, from payments to insurance and investment. Since it’s a digital-first bank, it’s tailormade for individual needs, making navigation smooth and seamless.

I could claim rewards, do recharge, make payments, and more, plus access my bank - all via the same app. This is possible just by opening a savings account with Airtel Payments Bank. And yes, all I needed was a video call to open an account. Know more.

What’s more, I also get an interest rate of 6% per annum on my savings account deposits of over 1 lakh, which means my money doesn’t sit idle (isn’t that our biggest concern?).

Rewards galore

Unlike other banks, where consistent rewards are a far-fetched dream, with Airtel Payments Bank, that’s now a reality, all thanks to their Rewards123 program! I literally earned rewards on loading money, shopping benefits as well as exclusive rewards on payments too. And that too, all year round! Know more.

The safest way to pay

I have never had to worry about security ever since I became a member of the Airtel Payments Bank. Their Safe Pay feature uses Airtel Network Intelligence to send alerts to your mobile number, plus you get additional third-factor authentication, which no other bank or wallet provides. What’s more, no transaction goes ahead without your confirmation. Know more.

Here’s what I will leave you with…

Yes, everything and more is possible, thanks to the Airtel Payments Bank. From opening a bank account with a video call to carrying out all kinds of payments, making investments, and getting insurance to protect yourself and your family, I could do it all with safety, so can you! Only if you have an Airtel Payments Bank savings account!
