World Savings Day: GCash Aims For 1 Million New Filipinos With Savings


Did you know that aside from the mainstream Halloween, October 31 is also “World Savings Day”! And on that day, GCash is aiming to break this record and have 1 million Filipinos open a savings account!

In GCash’s recently launched campaign, #PlsSaveMe, people came out to tell their stories about struggling to save — including big-earning individuals like lawyers and accountants, and even ex-PBB housemate Robi Domingo!

The campaign recently broke the internet when it became the #1 trending topic a few weeks ago, with people from all over the country confessing their saving woes.

GCash invites Filipinos to go beyond #PlsSaveMe

Now, GCash invite Filipinos to go beyond #PlsSaveMe and actually save with the GCash Save Money feature!

With interest rates 12x higher than the country’s #1 bank, GCash is empowering Filipinos to save more. There is also no minimum deposit required, just 1 valid ID and you can open an account anytime, anywhere.

We’re looking forward for Filipinos to do more than say #PlsSaveMe. Together with everyone, we want to help them start their savings journey. And we believe that GCash’s newest Save Money feature is the perfect product to help them at the perfect time: just a few days before this year’s World Savings Day on October 31,” shared Jerome Lim, GCash Product Head for Savings.
