Three ways to make managing money an act of self-love



Anyone who says Valentine’s Day is exclusively about romantic gestures is clearly missing the point. In the midst of Valentine’s Day and Single Awareness Day mania, Maya, your one-stop digital bank, reminds you that loving yourself is just as important as loving others.

Maya demonstrates that taking charge of one’s financial situation is one way to step into one’s own power. With the help of the best personal finance app and the best digital bank in the country, you can gain financial security and independence. Both of these break the rules of traditional banking by putting services on a single, easy-to-use platform.

Here, we outline three of Maya’s enticing promotions that can help you learn to love yourself by giving you more control over your finances.

Personalize with love

Taking care of oneself is a wonderful way to show yourself some love. Most of us would agree that achieving financial security and the ability to pursue our passions is a high priority. Maya has made it simple as never before to save for the future.

Personal Goals at Maya Savings offers competitive interest rates of up to 6% per year, making it the perfect place to start saving for a rainy day or that long overdue vacation, new wardrobe, or new phone.

Maya allows you to define up to five objectives at once, each of which can be given a unique name and a duration of between 180 and 365 days. With deposits of up to P1,000,000, you are guaranteed an annual interest rate of 6%.

Maya also has a sign-up and save promotion. Simply sign up, upgrade your account, and begin making purchases to earn up to $80 ($20 for signing up, $10 for upgrading, and $40 for your first purchase).

Use your name to make a one-of-a-kind @username for sending and receiving funds in Maya. Maya is the first in the Philippines to offer this innovative privacy feature, which makes it possible to conceal one’s the account name and phone number. Maya makes it easy to create a unique @username, so you can ditch QR codes and unwieldy numbers:

  1. Open your Maya app
  2. Tap the “Profile” icon on the upper left corner
  3. Tap “Get Started” to create your @username
  4. Key in your preferred @username and hit “Confirm.”  
  5. Finish off by keying in the One Time Password (OTP) sent via SMS.

A username is unique to each Maya account holder.   

You can also customize your Maya card with your new @username! Simply order a physical card on your app’s Cards section, personalize it with your @username, and wait for it to be delivered to your doorstep! 

Pick a store, any store

In this season of love and beyond, you should have all your heart wishes. Maya is your one-stop-shop for all the lowest prices on the items you wish to buy.

For instance, through April 15 you can receive a rebate when using Maya at Robinsons. Initiating a transaction with Maya QR and spending at least P1,000 entitles you to a cashback of up to P200; returning customers receive up to P150.

From now through March 31st, if you use Maya QR to pay for at least P1,000 worth of items at any SM Store, you will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win some fantastic goodies. These include an Apple iPhone 14, Apple AirPods Pro 2, and 3,000 Maya Credits.

Does vacationing at home sound appealing? Agoda is offering a 7% discount sitewide until March 14 if you pay with Maya and enter the coupon code “MAYA7JAN” at checkout.

At Flowerstore, Boozy, Edamama, Google Play, Codashop, Aipaz, Bills Pay, PLDT, MetroMart,, Qatar Airways, and Mobile Protect, paying with Maya will get you the greatest prices.

While roses and chocolates may be the conventional Valentine’s Day gifts for couples, you may offer yourself a financial boost without incurring any costs by investing in Maya.

Maya gives you a number of cost-free options to earn money. Until $8,000 per month, you can use OTC channels and linked banks as an alternative. Withdrawals from BPI, RCBC, UnionBank, and Chinabank are also free and limitless. If you withdraw at least P1,500 from a bank other than your own, you can obtain the InstaPay charge returned in the form of cash. Maya Centers is another choice; there is a smaller cash-in service cost of 1%, and you get 100% cash back on the fee, up to a maximum of 150 per client. As of February 28th, 2023, the offer is still active.
