Use This Workaround To Help You Save Big With Safaricom Mpesa Transaction Charges

how to save with mpesa withdrawals
Does Safaricom mpesa's charges worry you?? Have you thought of any methods to save on mpesa charges?
Well,today in this post, may be a sure-fire workaround that might help solve your ordeal...
+/-

Safaricom recently hiked it’s money transfer charges a moderation which saw the Kenya’s telecommunication giant laughing all the way to the bank with a positive change of about ksh 289. You can check my previous post on thenew mpesa charges here.  Safaricom New Mpesa Charges
This is a second safaricom’s mpesa tariff modification since 2013.  This has of course worried most mpesa subscribers when it comes to transacting with mpesa.  It’s safe for me to say that a times one becomes more confused and undecided on the amount of money to send or withdraw  from mpesa at minimal charges.  Checking the safaricom mpesa charges sheet at the time of transaction may not be of much help as it confuses the more.

As a student, I have faced this predicament, on whether to withdraw cash or ‘lipa na mpesa’ to save some substantial amount.  But unfortunately, like many others, I would definitely opt for paying by cash since it’s the mode that is familiar.  On the flip side, I have always ignored the fact that I might be wasting a lot on transaction charges.

Take for example I have done shopping worth ksh 2,600.  In normal cases, I would be charged ksh49, for withdrawal but I can get around this to pay cheaper by withdrawing ksh 2500 for ksh 27,then withdrawing the ksh 100 balance at ksh 10,giving me a total of ksh 27+10=ksh37 instead of ksh 49.  That’s  a whopping save of ksh12.  That’s just one life example  and there could be many situations that your calculations will bail you out.

General Guide to saving on mpesa withdrawal charges(Cheap mpesa withdrawal charges)
Amount withdrawn
Normal charges
Broken Down
Alternative charges
Total of the alternative charges

Ksh200

Ksh100

Ksh 10100

Ksh 10000
Ksh110

Ksh39
Ksh100
Ksh10
And because this work out to get around expensive mpesa charges may vary from situation to situation, I have worked out a table that will guide you on what to withdraw in order to help you save.

The first table offers just a general guide and you might need to do your calculations well in order to save with this model.  The second table gives a range of transaction and the range of charges you may incur with mpesa.

The Range Of Transaction
Amount
Minimum Withdrawal charges
101-200
Ksh 20
2501-5000
Ksh37-ksh54
35000-40000
Ksh197-253

That is my option, you could be having more ideas.  Kindly submit them in the below comment box...

Con Artist Reaping Big in Kenya:Top 7 Reasons Why Transhandlers Ltd Is a Scam!!


I did an article about alerting you guys of how the seriously the fraud was taking root online.In specific I am talking about job scams . If you haven’t read my previous article, then of course you can read it here Top Kenyan fake websites revealed before you read this post. This is because whatever topic I covered is more or less related to this one.Today I'm just about to reveal to you how a con artist has successfully managed to prey on unsuspecting Kenyan job seekers.

Yesterday, after seeing a comment in my previous post, I was alerted that whatever I have been castigating was still taking place…a sign that job scams have proved cashcow for online scammers.
I checked on transhandlers ltd website and realized that ever since I learned about their con artist tricks of conning unsuspecting job seekers into losing their hard-earned money, their continued existence only implies that they are still reaping big…and no authority is taking action. Is Safaricom doing enough to curb criminal acts? I have asked myself this question severally but my obvious answer is a bold-face NO.

+/-
As you will see in their career post that the so claimed transhandlers ltd has continued to use to steal from many,each time just modifying the dates and mpesa numbers, the denominator is that all the required payments are usually made via safaricom,s mpesa.
And because many unsuspecting Kenyans have continued to be the unfortunate victims of these online ‘crooks’, the only person who can help end this online craze is you and me. In this post, I have identified five proofs that Transhandlers Ltd is a scam. You can also read this article on ‘How to Avoid Scams Online
What You and Me Can do About Online Con Artists
At the end of this article you will have a choice on to decide whether Transhandlers’ ltd is indeed legitimate.
Secondly you can at least share it with a friend or more. If you can do this, then I believe it won’t take a genius to rumble there ‘little’ game!

Helb Kenya: Downloading HELB loan Application Form In PDF, Checking Loan Status and Helb Products

Higher Educations Loans Board (HELB Kenya) of Kenya is a body that helps Kenyan college and university students fund their education.
 For regular students, some of  the amount allocated is send directly to the student bank account to cater for upkeep and accommodation. The remaining balance is usually sent directly to the institution tution account.  This is to cater for only ksh 8,000 of the tution fee.

For self-sponsored students usually referred to as, “students on parallel program”, the loan awarded is usually higher with the whole amount being sent directly to the institution. Besides the Helb loan, the self-sponsored students also stand a chance to benefit from the HELB bursary.

For colleges like KMTCs and medical students in local universities they benefit from FUNZO loan and AFYA loan respectively. Tivet students also qualify for helb loan. For details about these helb loans, kindly check the below links.

Kenya Revenue Authority(KRA) PIN Certificate Online Application

Hello friend, thanks for visiting this blog. With HELB’s(Higher Educations Loans Board) deadline almost running out for most of loan application categories; I decided to come up with this post having in mind the tiring process most students and loan applicants have to undergo in the process of loan application. Just to mention but a few; the traffic to the site is always high rendering the access to be slow; the required details are too many( I don’t fault them because such details are required for documentation, follow up, approval and so on), and therefore it becomes necessary that for one to apply all the required details should be on the offing plus timely access of this site in order to apply for HELB loan and download the application form. Today I’m going to begin with the former strategy, that is to ensure that all the required

Top Ways Kenyan Students Can Earn Reasonable Income Online (Online Jobs---part II)

This is the continuation of my previous article  Top Ways Kenyan Students Can Earn Some Income--Part I please read it.
These are some of the online jobs you can take part in from the comfort of your sofas.  Not only students can take part in these jobs but also the employed or non-employed who may want to leverage some part-time or full time  jobs.  The disadvantage with internet based jobs is that on most occasions , few are legitimate. In this post I am going to list the genuine online jobs that I have personally used to earn some supplementary income.  As you are going to realize that not much can be earned. Personally I have earned upto ksh 2500 on the higher side and so whenever you come across any one promising you gonna be rich over night, that’s an a bold faced lie…in common terms those are the scams you will bump into from time to time, spend your energy and time trying to earn virtually nothing, not knowing you are already a scam victim.  In the list of ways of earning money online below, I have arranged in a chronological manner.  That is the easiest and shortest ways to earn and so pay keen attention to the order.
