Six tips for a financially savvy Easter

Six tips for a financially savvy Easter

1. Make a checklist

Let’s be honest, the cost of buying Easter eggs can add up quickly. 

Then, add into the mix the fact that the entire event often creeps up on even the best of us. Next minute, it’s 9pm the night before and you’re at the fuel station paying $20 for the Easter dregs that will be 80% off tomorrow. We feel you friend, we feel you! 

That’s why we’re going to suggest making a list and checking it twice (even though it’s Easter and not Christmas!). Write out everyone you need to buy for and what you’re going to buy them. Then, carve out the time in your diary to hit up the shops quickly and cross it off the list – here’s a handy printable checklist from Mrs Organised. That way you (hopefully) won’t get caught out and miss anyone! 

2. Consider Easter egg alternatives 

3. Low-cost ideas to entertain the kids this long weekend 

From foam cups to jelly beans, pasta and rocks – we’ve all got one of the items on this list and that’s a quick, cheap craft activity sorted for the kids (or your inner-child) this Easter. 

  1. Jelly bean Easter necklaces
  2. Toilet paper roll bunny
  3. Foam cup bunnies
  4. Pasta Easter eggs
  5. Easy Easter rocks 

4. Set the ‘Out of Office’ and put your bills on autopilot 

Unless you’re working over the Easter break, you’ll likely be turning on the Out of Office and checking out from more than your email responsibilities. 

Can we suggest grabbing that pile of bills on your countertop/fridge now, scanning them all into the Sniip app (or importing them from your email). You can quickly and easily schedule, create an instalment plan or set yourself a reminder to pay the bill later

That way, you’ll encounter no nasty surprises or overdue bills when you check back into reality post Easter. 

5. Secure your home 

On the note of bills, that home and contents insurance coverage isn’t going to get you much mileage if you don’t secure your home. 

Opportunistic thieves love a long weekend as much as we do. A quick double-check of the doors and windows before you head away for the long weekend might save you a lot more money than your time cost you to check this Easter.

Even if you’re in the backyard, you might just quickly double back and lock the front door. Or maybe it’s that you ensure your car keys aren’t securely stored in your car’s ignition. You know, all that good stuff!

6. Organise your Easter get-together for the week later 

We couldn’t wrap this up without including this super-savvy Easter savings tip for you. 

Much like Christmas, all things Easter will be less than half the price in the days that follow the event. If it’s a family/ friends gathering and you know you’ll be doing an Easter exchange, see if you can’t move it to the week following Easter. 

The chocolates will be cheaper, the parks, restaurants, cafes and accommodation less busy and the memories and time spent together will likely be just as meaningful. 

Happy Easter from the team here at Sniip! 

What happens when Apple Pay partners with Sniip? More cards unlocked for bills

Apple Pay partners with Sniip

BREAKING: Mobile bill payments platform, Sniip today brings its customers Apple Pay, a safer, more secure and private way to pay their bills using the power of iPhone to protect every transaction.

Customers simply select Apple Pay in the Sniip app to make a secure payment to over 60,000 billers in the BPAY network. Every Apple Pay payment is secure because it is authenticated with Face ID, Touch ID, or device passcode, as well as a one-time unique dynamic security code. As a result of the partnership with Sniip, customers can use Apple Pay on an iPhone to make bill payments that are faster and more convenient as they no longer need to repeatedly type in personal and payment card information. 

“We’re excited to offer Apple Pay as a new payment option in the Sniip app, reinforcing our commitment to providing the ultimate convenience in bill payments for our 40,000-strong customer base. Sniip remains focused on delivering a fast, seamless, and consumer-centric approach to bill payments and adding such a widely-used mobile wallet such as Apple Pay is a big step forward,” said Damien Vasta, CEO of Sniip.

Security and privacy are at the core of Apple Pay. When customers use a credit or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted, and securely stored in the Secure Element, an industry-standard, certified chip designed to store the payment information safely on the device.

Apple Pay is easy to set up. On iPhone, simply open the Wallet app, tap +, and follow the steps to add your credit or debit cards. Once a customer adds a card to iPhone, they can start using Apple Pay on that device right away.
