What a Weekend!

I just had the most amazing couple of days; what a weekend! Wow! I didn’t see that coming. But I really should have. It was fully loaded, packed. Here’s how it all started.

I mean, how can you not just love weekends? Firstly, you do not get to wake up early. Saturday mornings are rare, they should be cherished. You have the ability to turn off the alarm clock. And just sleep. We have the luxury of sleeping a little longer on weekends, and it’s great.

What about TV time? Saturdays are great because you can catch up on your favourite shows, see movies. Basically, you get to unwind and chill. If hanging out is your thing, fine. If not, you can rest easy. I did and I loved it. But that was not all.

Sunday came and, drum roll…it was the final day of the English Premier League season. So many potential plot twists. Would Arsenal qualify for the Champions League? Would Liverpool pip City to the Premiership? Soon enough, it was match time, and the premiership didn’t disappoint.

From City going 2 goals down, to Liverpool being held, I had my fill of drama. Well, eventually, City won the League and Tottenham took the final Champions League spot, much to my joy. As a United fan, I couldn’t wait for the season to end any sooner, but I was glad that Arsenal, with all their noise, were also not going to make the Champions League next season. It was a great night.

That’s Not All

Subsequently, the final of season 7 of the Nigerian Idols also held on Sunday Night. I love the show. Well, I love music so, yes. I had followed this season from the beginning and I surely wasn’t going to miss the finals. The show was just about to start when I ran out of electricity units. Whattttttt! Not today! Thank God I knew VTpass would plug me in speedily, and they came through. I got my token instantly and was able to watch my favourite contestant Progress win the show!

It was a great weekend and I already can’t wait for the next, as it is the Champions League final battle between Liverpool and Real Madrid. Trust me to pay my tv subscription before then to avoid stories that touch. In all, I can say, what a weekend!

Whatever your bill payment needs are, VTpass has you covered.

Financial Hacks For Vehicle Owners

Vehicle owners get to spend a whole lot. They say that having a motor vehicle is like having a second wife. They were not joking. I tell you from experience. Those things called cars? They will humble you. Lol. I tell you! Owning a car in this country is not for the faint-hearted.

Meanwhile, there are some things all vehicle owners can relate with. One of those things is, how can I give a mechanic my vehicle to change the brake pad and the next thing I am hearing is that I need to buy half engine and change my windscreen? LIke, how? You too, help me reason this matter now. What mechanics cannot do does not exist indeed! Those guys!

On the other hand, sometimes it is how I can take my fully functional car for servicing by myself, get it back and suddenly, I need to buy a new radiator, or possibly change the engine seat. And now my car is leaking oil and I can smell petrol when I drive. Automobiles and their mechanics, I bow!

For instance, sometimes it’s how they will tell you some things they removed from your car is not needed in it. Like, the manufacturers of the car, you know more than them right? They didn’t know what they were doing when they were making it right? Oga mecho, how many cars have you produced sir?

The expenses of mechanics and vehicle artisans can be an unavoidable pain in uncomfortable places. However, motor accident expenses are avoidable when you get a third party motor vehicle cover on VTpass. That way you do not have to directly bear the cost accruing to accidents to your vehicle. Here’s How!

You’re not wishing for it, neither am I. But you can avoid the avoidable by simply purchasing/renewing your third party auto insurance on www.vtpass.com today .

Earn More As a VTpass Terminal Agent

It is the age where making money online is the new normal, so we’d like to teach you how you can earn more as a VTpass Terminal Agent. That’s right! You read correctly. Everyone needs a side hustle. Everyone needs more sources of income. Income that is legit, of course. In most cases, this is not income to flex, but to survive. The economy is not friendly. Mini flats (an exotic name for a small room & parlour self con) are currently leasing for upwards of N800,000 in Lagos. How is anyone supposed to cater for that on a salary of N60 per month?

As a matter of fact, what you earned last year, that same amount holds less value right now. It’s called inflation. To show you the effect of inflation on today’s market, instead of throwing definitions at you, how about we take a look at the image below?

When you look at the image, it becomes more glaring at a glance that you need to increase your income. The buying power your income had last year is not the same it has this year. Last year, a bag of sachet water was going for N150. Today, that same sachet of water is selling for N250. The price of cooking gas has doubled in some cases, and sardines has become a luxury food.

A closer look at the image will make you see other areas in which your cost of living has skyrocketed exponentially. And you probably did not notice. As Nigerians, we are resilient. That resilience helps us to adapt to harsh conditions. However, we don’t have to accept it as the norm. We can do something about it.

How International Airtime Got Me Money

This is a true life story about how the International Airtime got me money during this Easter Festive period. No cap. So, Easter was fast approaching. I was in a fix as I needed to host my babe for the period. Man was a little low on cash. Ok, not a little, a lot. Man was extremely dry. I needed a miracle!

I looked through my contacts. Lol. It is when you are broke that you will realise it is phone numbers you have, not contacts. Contacts can help. Phone numbers, well, let’s not go there. Well, there I was. Swimming in contacts, until I saw the contact of my uncle who was in the U.S. Boston, to be precise. Ok, could this be a way out?

Firstly, it had been a long time since we had spoken. The last time we spoke was 7 years ago, when I was asking him for financial help and he stopped responding to my chat. That meant I needed a way in. It would be wrong for me to just go in guns blazing and ask for money. I wasn’t raised to be a beggar, but I needed help.

Secondly, I needed an angle. That was when it hit me. A stroke of genius. Like Oga Sabinus, the plan formed in my mind. VTpass had a product on their platform called International Airtime. I could simply purchase airtime for this my uncle, then say hi to him online. Let him know that his thought crossed my mind and I just thought to recharge his line with something light. It should work, I thought…or hoped!

What Happened Next…

Consequently, within seconds, I was done. Immediately, I sent my uncle the receipt, along with a message checking up on him, wishing him the best and to let him know that he was in my prayers. I am such a bastard liar, gosh! Moreover, I actually started praying. My little money should not just go down the drain.

Guess what happened next? My Uncle started typing. Immediately at that! Imagine my shock. I thought this man was so busy. He responded, telling me that was so thoughtful of me. Of course. I’m so full of thoughts normally. lol. Next thing I know, he’s asking for my email address and my account number. Oshey! Uncle don ask for my aza ooo.

Long story short, that is how my last 2k that I used to buy International Airtime for my uncle got me 50k in return. See how International Airtime got me money. Easter don soft. Now look at me thinking, who else do I have in the abroad. I have found a new way to bill them.

I used VTpass. VTpass is an online bills payment platform where you can buy airtime and data, pay other TV subscriptions and electricity bills, buy insurance covers and pay education bills. Most importantly, you get a variety of payment options and instant value! Use VTpass to send International Airtime to your uncles in the abroad and see if it won’t work wonders for your bank account.

Buy International Airtime And Pay In Naira

Do you know that there’s a way for you to buy International Airtime and pay in Naira? Yes. I mean exactly what you just read. You can buy airtime for any country in the world and pay using Naira. Right from the comfort of your mobile device, you can get airtime for any country in the world on VTpass.

Firstly, imagine you are travelling for a work trip. Or perhaps it’s a short vacation. International airtime is an amazing barter system that can get you out of some pretty sticky situations. Just ask my guy here.

Secondly, you have a relative who recently relocated for schooling. Probably in the UK right? Maybe in the United States, or Canada? The first 2 to 3 years are usually quite rough, trust me. Trying to work around schooling and earning a little income with the 20 hours the government approves for students to work. And because most corporate organisations are not looking to employ someone who works short hours, the only jobs are probably menial. Caretaker job, Store attendant, etc. Barely enough income to pay for rent most times. How do you think buying airtime for such relative would make them feel? You too just think about it for a while…

Certainly, you can see the benefit of being able to Buy International Airtime And Pay In Naira now. Consequently, you can buy for almost all countries in the world. See a comprehensive list of countries here. In conclusion, all of them are available on the VTpass platform now.

In the same vein, you can also buy airtime and data, pay other TV subscriptions and electricity bills, buy insurance covers and pay education bills on VTpass. Most importantly, all while offering you a variety of payment options. Meanwhile, you also get immediate value.

How International Airtime Saved My Vacation

This story about how international airtime saved my vacation is entirely true. Except for the parts that are totally made up. True though. It was this one time after I had just gotten married. I’d been working so hard. And didn’t have time off for a proper honeymoon. So when a friend introduced me to a pocket-friendly travel package to Dubai, I jumped at it.

Sent in a leave request which got approved, packed my bags and went off with wifey on a two-week vacation in Dubai. Man was about to taste the baby boy life. Sweetness! Everything was going great. Mehn, we really were not ready for the amazing sights of Dubai!

To say that the view from the observation deck on the 124th floor of the Burj Khalifa was breath-taking is an understatement. An overwhelming work of art. Dubai is fine please! Things work there. Abi I should not come back ni? Lol. By the time the 2-week vacation was coming to an end, we had visited the Dubai Aquarium, spent a full day at the Jumeirah Beach Residence, and taken Sunset Pics at the Dubai Frame. Truly, this was a vacation we didn’t want to end.

Subsequently, disaster struck. Amir had been our dedicated cab driver from when we arrived at the Dubai International Airport, and had opened a tab for us. We were to pay him when he dropped us off at the airport for our trip back to Nigeria. I had kept his cash (about 500 Dirham at this point) aside. Lo and behold, getting to the DXB, it was time to pay Amir. I couldn’t find the cash no more.

What Happened Next…

Me and my wife tried to explain what had just happened to Amir, but it seems some Nigerians had already given us a bad reputation. Amir was irate, and a crowd was gathering. I had no cash, and no way of sending money to Amir, who though he had been nice all through my stay, was suddenly quite agitated. Understandably so. His money was about to walk on a plane back to Nigeria. I honestly didn’t know what to do anymore. That was when my wife reminded me of VTpass, where we pay our bills.

To be honest, I was annoyed. I wondered how VTpass was going to help me pay my cab man in Dubai and save me the embarrassment we were already experiencing, then it hit me. I could pay Amir by purchasing International Airtime from VTpass to his Dubai number, while I pay in Naira on the VTpass platform. Women are geniuses! I explained my solution to Amir and in one minute, it was done. I purchased International Airtime worth 600 Dirham to Amir’s phone and suddenly, I was the best customer again. What money cannot do does not exist truly! We got our bags and rushed into the airport. We could not wait to get back to Naija. No one wants to get stranded in another man’s land truly.

There’s more. On VTpass, you can also buy airtime and data, pay other TV subscriptions and electricity bills, buy insurance covers and pay education bills. All while offering you a variety of payment options and immediate delivery of value!

Well, there you have it. The story of how International Airtime on VTpass saved my vacation, and possibly my reputation.
