Many working couples today split household expenses equally between them. In some cases spouses maintain their separate savings accounts to receive salaries and make a list of the items in the monthly budget that each will pay for, from their respective
accounts. While some others open a joint savings account and contribute money, out of which they pay for their expenses. Assuming your household falls in the latter category, would you like an option to combine the transactional ease of a savings account and yet earn additional interest? You can also enjoy discounts and deals on your regular monthly purchases.
Axis Bank’s ASAP Instant Savings Account is an online savings account that can be opened with no documentation and paper work. It can be opened
in a few minutes using your Aadhaar and PAN details.
Keep in mind that an ASAP account cannot be opened in a joint name; hence it has to be either in your or your spouse’s name. But you can make your spouse the nominee for the account. The initial funding should be done from a Full KYC account
of the individual in whose name the ASAP account is being opened. However, after the initial funding, both spouses can transfer money into the ASAP account from their respective accounts.
Good option for regular payments
If you maintain a certain balance in your Axis ASAP account you can enjoy offers and deals from ecommerce firms such as Amazon, Bigbasket, Bookmyshow, and so on. This will take care of your regular monthly household needs as well as your movies and
entertainment. And you continue to earn points while making these transactions, which in turn means further deals and discounts.
