Our Savers Awards are an important feature of the app as they bring to life the priorities that we believe in and want to support via our services. They benefit customers who are using the card regularly so that they can track their spending, and finding ways to put some money aside, and where this pot is put to work to provide them with a wealthier future.
We’ve had these algorithms running in the background since we launched, tracking the activity of all users so that we could see if the nominations were being added correctly, and the values we had given for each were fair. In some cases we’ve had to tweak these and make sure nothing was being missed.
We have a winner! (in fact there are 10)
We have just tested the process of random selection of winners and we are in the process of sending out messages to the lucky winners. As you may have seen, there are 10 prizes of £100 each, available to customers each month, with a draw made around the 7th of each month, when we then contact the winners and transfer the funds.
This is still the first test draw. We have now reset all counters while we make the final changes in time for next month’s awards. The updated presentation should arrive in your apps by the end of the month when
we will also share the full details of the updated rules and processes.
Yes, we first reset the counters for everyone and these are not displaying in the app at the moment. However, we are tracking the transactions and ‘nominations’ in the background and will apply these once the update is out, so the next draw will be around the 7th of June as planned
We will be letting all customers know about these awards via an email shortly - this is an exciting reward for those who are using their Dozens app to its fullest
The draws are done every month from now on. There is now no specific announcement other than the emails sent to the 10 lucky winners. If they choose to identify themselves that would be great.
Once we have a few months of data to work with, I will try to announce some of the statistics that come out of this, such as the numbers of people in each draw, or average numbers of nominations, and so on.
The counter in the app may still be showing null values but we are counting all of these on the system and the interface will be updated in an upcoming release so you can keep a better eye on your totals and see how your behaviour is influencing your number of nominations and therefore your chances to win.
Is there something else you would like to hear on a monthly basis?
Quick update to let you know that the latest Savers Awards for June have just been paid, so check your apps - it could be you ™
I’m still hoping we get to hear from one winner who happens to be in the community and is willing to let us know … it would be great to hear about how much you used the app in order to get the winning ticket (even a single nomination is enough) but also what you might plan to do with the winnings.
We’ve paid out over £3000 already towards these prizes so we do hope it is bringing a smile to the faces of our customers around the UK
There have been some delays bringing the information into the app, while our focus has been on developing the invest features and relaunching our fixed interest bonds. However we do expect this will be added back shortly.
However, the savers awards are still being awarded based on the data tracked on the server, so even though these are not visible in - app, they are still very much happening.
We’ve awarded 10 awards of £100 each month since we announced these in May, and we’re particularly excited about announcing the December awards which will be 10 x £1000 awards.
If you have any questions, feel free to post them here
Just won this month. Slight disbelief as I haven’t used the card for ages and just have a couple of savings rules running. There’s no way it’s effectively rewarding behaviour, as there’s really very little to measure!
Aha! We had to have a community winner eventually!!
I take your point about behaviour, but in truth it is a random draw, so even is you have a single transaction you CAN win. However, with more activity, particularly having a bond or investment, your chances increase dramatically.
