ASB has launched a cool campaign to raise emoney for St. Johns. They are selling off preloaded bank accounts at half price on trademe.
Yeah, you can bid for a bank account worth 250$ and only pay 150$ for it. Your payment goes to St. John, and ASB gives you back the full amount! The only problem is that the kiwis seem to have a grudge against free money. Currently five accounts are up for grabs and each one of them has a bidder paying more money than he's getting back. One charitable guy even bid 285$ on a 250$ account. Although I'm sure that was not quite the way it was intended to go, nobody from ASB or St.Johns will be complaining. More money towards charity!
