Steve took your ₦1m 😩

When is the best time to win 1 million Naira?

If you’re like me, the answer to that question is “every day na. Which kind of question is that?

Well – it did me like film trick when I saw somebody carry clean ₦1m this week. I was hoping it would be us celebrating together today, but you didn’t do simple investment that would have won us this cash. O wrong nau. πŸ˜ž

Anyway – in case you’ve been sleeping for the last month, Carbon launched a campaign to reward people that invest money on the app. For the next one year, there will be monthly draws to give away ₦60m in cash prizes.

The first draw for the Investment Challenge held on November 1st. One person got ₦1m, while 40 others won ₦100k each.

Come and meet that ₦1m winner for yourself – his name is Steve Jacob, and after checking at least 5 times, I can confirm to you that he does not have two heads. He just put his money in the right place.

Meet Meet Steve Jacob – our first ₦1m winner in the Carbon Investment Challenge! Congratulations! πŸŽ‰ #CreditedbyCarbon

You know Nigerians – we sabi ask question pass anything. So I said let me put a few quick answers together for questions that have been coming up a lot since the first draw. 
How can I qualify for the Investment Challenge?

To qualify for the challenge, just set up an investment plan on Carbon and keep the money invested for at least 30 days.

Important: To qualify, you cannot have any loan payments currently in arrears. Plis dear. Person no dey chop for the same place they πŸ’©

Is this thing real? Has anybody actually won this prize? πŸ€”

Before nko? But if you’re still in doubt, you can view a list of all past winners here.

Can I win multiple times throughout the course of the competition?

See your long throat. πŸ˜œ

No, you can only win once. Once you’re declared a winner in any month, you don’t qualify to win in subsequent months. Let’s allow other people too enjoy money na.

The investment amount I need to qualify, must it be in a single investment or can it be spread across multiple investments?

To qualify, you must hold the minimum investment balance in at least one investment plan for 30 days. Wahala for who no hold at least ₦5k in a One Time, Fixed Deposit or Periodic Investment plan.

I’ve been investing with Carbon, but I didn’t win the prize this month. Why this?

No vex. There were a few thousand people eligible this month but only 41 could win from the random draws. Because you’re my person, I’ll tell you how to increase your chances of getting selected:

  • Stay Invested: Ensure that you have a running investment at all times for the next 12 months, and you’ll qualify for each draw until you win. Don’t use anger and withdraw your money the night before you were supposed to win.
  • Invest consistently: Ensure that you’re regularly increasing your investments over time. Carbon loves a cheerful saver. 

When I win (amen o), what do I need to do to claim my prize money?

If you win any of the cash prizes, you’ll be contacted directly in your Carbon app with next steps.

ImportantYou will not be asked by Carbon to make any payments or supply any codes to anyone in order to retrieve your prize. Shine your eye, beware of fraudsters!

After all these my tips, all that’s left now is to start investing, then sit back and wait for December 1st.

When you win the money, abeg don’t forget to do small giveaway. Your babe remains loyal. πŸ₯Ί
