If you haven’t started using the BaZing perks that come with INB checking accounts, you are missing out. Our bank staff makes a conscious effort to take advantage of the benefits offered to them. Here are three stories from colleagues who have saved big with BaZing when shopping local.
Madison Hayes – Teller at Chatham Branch: Recently, I started using the BaZing app, hoping to find some savings at places that I frequently visit. On this particular day, I was with my boyfriend while he was getting fitted for a tux for his sister’s wedding. While I was waiting for the fitting to finish, I was checking out the BaZing app and happened to see a $40 off any tux rental at Savvi Formalwear; SCORE! So far, the $40 at Savvi is the most that I have saved with BaZing.
Jamie Singer – Treasury management specialist at Main Branch: After dropping my cell phone in the toilet (OOPS!), I was able to use the BaZing Cell Phone Protection and recoup $149 of the $200 insurance co-pay. The process was fairly easy and I received my refund check in about 4 weeks.
Candee Arvin – Universal Banker at North Branch: Oh let me tell you. I LOVE IT.
- If you download the app and turn on the notifications filter, it will notify you of discounts in the area. I take the train to visit friends in Joliet/Chicago and it tells me if/where there are discounts all the way up. When I got off the train in Joliet it told me of several in the area, we saved 20% (almost $16) on dinner for four.
- COUPONS!* I use the coupon deals ALL the time for places close to the North branch on North Dirksen Parkway. Penn Station, Arby’s and The Stadium are nearby. I have also used them for video rentals and pizza at Family Video/Marcos Pizza. I got my husband a discount on his last haircut. I even helped my new brother-in-law with tux rental discounts.
- GROCERY COUPONS!!!!!! Use those too!
- I had a customer try to use a discount offer and was rebuffed by the restaurant. She did the “dispute compliant” feature on BaZing and was reimbursed!
