SENDING SOMEONE A VIRTUAL GIFT CARD FROM CHECKERS OR OTHER STORES
Some may be wondering if it’s possible to help someone in need.
Well Shoperite/Checkers/USave have set up a system whereby it’s possible
to send a "virtual voucher" to someone.
Where to find this:
Go to www.computicket.com and search for Checkers.
DOWNLOAD THE MONEY MARKET APP OR REGISTER VIA USSD TO SEND OR RECEIVE MULTIPLE USE GROCERY VOUCHERS
Multiple use Virtual Vouchers for the Shoprite Money Market Account allows you to:
- pay for groceries in-store
- buy prepaid services such as airtime and electricity
- send multiple-use virtual grocery vouchers to another Money Market Account
- use the value as and when needed
- make multiple purchases at different times provided there is sufficient vouchers available in your Money Market account
All directly from your phone, with no fees.
Virtual vouchers loaded to an MMA account can be used at Shoprite, Checkers and Usave stores nationwide. Vouchers cannot be withdrawn from the Money Market Account
WHY TOP UP SOMEONE'S ACCOUNT?
assist with groceries and school supplies
help pay for in-store services such as bus tickets
send as a gift
Money deposited into a Money Market Account reflects as vouchers, a digital currency that allows the recipient to transact in store and on the App or via USSD.
Vouchers cannot be withdrawn as cash, but can be used to save, send and spend on the go.
The Soup Kitchen at United Church is held on Mondays at 10am.
Should you wish to help with soup making, kindly contact the church office.
