Brief Explanation

New Zealand has a problem. We spend too much and save too little. The Government, media and even international credit rating agencies are talking about it. We tapped into one of the biggest conversations in New Zealand. And provided a solution. What if we could save as impulsively as we spend? Imagine a red button and every time you press it you save. Now imagine that button in your pocket. Westpac’s Impulse Saver iPhone App is the world’s first impulse saving product from a bank. The idea created an enormous media conversation, positioning Westpac as the bank that was actually doing something to help their customers make better use of their money.
