The account runs much like any other savings account, presumably with a few limitations buried somewhere in the fine print. Deposits and withdrawals to and from the account can be made at GTBank branches, GTExpress outlets and Etisalat Experience Centers across Nigeria.
This account can be opened by any Etisalat subscriber who does not currently own a GTBank account and has the following features:
- Open and operate a bank account through an Etisalat line without filling any forms.
- Save on a daily, weekly or monthly basis at an interest rate of 3.9%.
- Receive double airtime on every recharge after opening the account.
- Deposit and withdraw money from GTBank branches, GTExpress outlets and Etisalat Experience Centres.
To open a GTEasy Savers account now, dial *737*0# on your Etisalat line. You will remember that just a few weeks ago, GTB also launched a USSD-based money transfer service and the bank runs a USSD mobile recharge based service as well.
The service isn’t much different from the MTN-Diamond Bank “Diamond Yello Account” which was launched last year.
