If you’re feeling the effect of the festive period on your finances, or looking for a bargain in the New Year, why not give O2 Wallet a whirl to help you out.

As an added incentive, if you use it to send money, scan and buy stuff online, or use the O2 Money Account Card before 10 January; you could win £500 a day.*

O2 Wallet is designed to transform the way people use their phone to manage their money. Here are three ways we reckon it could help you in 2013.

Settle your IOUs from the party season
Owe a friend for the beers on New Year’s Eve? Still need to pay for your share from the work’s Christmas party? Settle your debts in an instant by sending a Money Message. It’s as easy as sending a text. All the recipient needs to do is download O2 Wallet to redeem the cash. Simple.

Budget to beat the January blues
Register for O2 Wallet and you can also get your paws on a physical pre-paid O2 Account Card, perfect if you want to budget your finances in the New Year. Load it up and use it to pay for things on the high street and withdraw cash from ATMs. It’s also contactless, so you can make payments up to £20 with a quick tap of your card at more than 100,000 contactless payment points in the UK.

Buy yourself the present you really wanted
If Santa didn’t bring you what you wanted this year, don’t worry. You can use O2 Wallet to scan barcodes, compare prices, get brilliant offers on millions of branded goods – all from the comfort of your own home.
