Meet Suraya. She’s studying for a PHD and struggles to make time to even think about saving thanks to her hectic student lifestyle.
With plans to move back to Malaysia after graduating and a love of treating her family to some pretty big Christmas presents, she wasn’t sure if it would all be possible.
That is, until she downloaded Chip… and the rest is history.
This is Suraya’s Chip story.
“I started using Chip back in July 2017, so just over a year now but it doesn’t feel like it,” says Suraya. “I actually didn’t have to give it too much thought. Saw the app, installed it and boom! Just the right amount of money was squirrelled away every month.
“I’ve used it to get Christmas presents (one of the presents was a flying lesson for my boyfriend - but we still haven’t booked a session). The rest I’m saving up to cover shipping costs when I have to move back to Malaysia at the end of my studies.”
Suraya tells us what she loves most about Chip is that it makes saving effortless. 🤑
“This app has definitely helped me save a lot of money in the best way possible - without me needing to think about it. As a PhD student, things are stressful and hectic as is and Chip has definitely helped to take savings off my plate in a fun effective way. So I’d like to say thank you to the team!”
As well as helping her save up for the things she really wants, Suraya actually enjoys using the app - especially chatting to our friendly bot. She also loves checking out the latest gifs whenever she pops in to make a manual save or check her Chip balance.
“The Chip chat interface is great and and having a chat interface adds a nice personal touch - almost feels like you’re texting a friend,” she says. “Also, I personally am obsessed with gifs so the gifs on Chip chat has definitely kept me hooked onto the app!”
That’s what we’re all about here at Chip. Making saving easy and making it fun. 🙌
