We’ve all been on the wrong or the right end after a hard day’s cricket, when all you want is a beer, soft drink and/or bite to eat to celebrate or commiserate – depending on how things went out on the field.
Being stuck without a bit of money, because you’ve forgotten your wallet or misplaced your bank card can be as inconveniencing as getting out for a duck or travelling for a few sixes, especially when you want to make a purchase at the club bar or local restaurant.
While you’ll always have a few trusty team-mates to call on to cover your bill there and then, it’s nice to be able to pay ’em back sooner rather than later.
That’s where Spot comes into play – a great new payment app that allows you to send money from one cellphone to another. The cash goes straight from your account to your mate’s – or vice versa.
A couple of us here at Club Cricket SA downloaded the app, quickly got used to the straightforward functionality and were spotting each other cash within a couple of minutes.
Spot is as handy as getting off the mark with a beautiful cover drive for four or nabbing a wicket with the first delivery of your spell.
Download the Spot app, use ‘ClubCricketSA‘ when prompted for a referral code and link your bank cheque or credit card (just like you would for Uber or SnapScan).
The moment you complete all three steps, you will be entered into a competition for a R10,000 prize. If you win, you can keep the money for yourself – or donate all or some of it to your club. The choice is yours.
