My Liv. Bank Account Is One Of THE Best Things I’ve Signed Up For This Year (Honestly)
If you’ve always wanted your very own bank account but can’t face the paperwork, the gazillion trips to the bank and all that palaver then listen up! Liv. is a brand new bank account and debit card system here in Dubai which caters uniquely to women and might just be the answer to many a mamas shopping prayers – it certainly is for mine! And as for being easy to set up? I got mine sorted in approximately three minutes (seriously), just by downloading the Liv. app onto my phone, scanning my Emirates ID and requesting that a card be sent to me pronto (yay!). Two days later, a lovely chap on a bike handed me my shiny new card and everything was done.
So what’s the big deal? Well not only do I now have a bank account (without all aforementioned hassle) but also a debit card that comes with all sorts of benefits including up to 50% offers and deals on everything from spas to dining to kids activities and more plus the ability to track expenses by category (super handy for tracking and managing your money – something I’m not always the best at). AND you can earn 2% interest on every dirham saved in the account.
Fully digital, easy to navigate and totally safe too (Liv. is secured by Emirates NBD so it’s super safe too) – plus if you misplace your card (something I have been known to do on occasion…), simply open the app and lock your account with a quick tap. And if your friends are also signed up with Liv. then you can split bills and money transfer between each other so easily too!
So for many reasons, Liv. is the absolute favourite piece of plastic in my wallet these days. And as for those tell-tale messages my husband used to get when I’d spent a small fortune in Zara? They are no more! I can shop for whatever I like without anybody knowing (perfect for buying his birthday present too!).
There’s no catch, there’s no hassle, there are no fees involved – there’s only the ability to save and spend and take control of your own finances in the easiest way possible. It’s a winner mamas! Time to Liv. it up.
Liv. is available for customers with an Emirates ID, across the UAE. Simply download the app by searching for Liv. by Emirates NBD on Apple or Play store.
