GCash teamed up with Maybank, one of the largest banks in Southeast Asia, to launch EzySave+, a digital savings account that offers accessible, safe and convenient digital banking experience for Filipinos via GSave.
With the partnership, EzySave+ depositors can enjoy an additional 5-percent interest per annum cash credit on their average daily balance during the first 90 days of opening an account. Maybank is the third bank to be available on GSave to date.
“With the launch of EzySave+ by Maybank via the GSave feature on the GCash app, users gain access to more solutions on now to conveniently access their money and savings, enjoy interest earnings, collect financial rewards and perform cashless payments and fund transfers to help them jumpstart their digital banking journey. This is also a big step towards our goal of helping the country achieve its financial inclusion goals,” said Martha Sazon, president and chief executive of GCash.
“With our partnership with GCash, we are hoping to encourage Filipinos to start saving with security and convenience. In line with our role as a financial institution, we want to ensure a seamless online banking experience for our customers with the launch of EzySave+,” said Maybank Philippines’ president and chief executive Abigail Del Rosario.
EzySave+ comes with a free EMV-enabled Maybank Visa Debit Card on the users initial minimum deposit amount of P1,000, which will be delivered for free.
Customers can use this debit card to withdraw cash or pay for their purchases and transactions. What’s more, EzySave+ requires no initial deposit, no maintaining balance, and offers interest for as low as P0.01, with a 0.35-percent base rate, as well as free withdrawals from over 22,000 BancNet ATMs nationwide.
