By Paytm Canada
This time of the year has a way of making us reflect on the things we are thankful for in our lives — like family, friends and the fall TV lineup. We also recognize that life isn’t always puppies and warm hugs. The realities that come with being an adult can sometimes be downright dreadful. But when we practice gratitude, we can find little ways to make even the most unexpected things in life more rewarding.
Take paying your bills for example. You’ve probably never thought of giving yourself a pat on the back for paying them on time. It’s just something you know you have to do or risk the penalties. But why not reward yourself for paying your bills? You might be surprised at how your attitude toward your bills can suddenly change for the better.
Show yourself some gratitude for paying your bills the Paytm way
Paytm Canada’s bill payment app not only makes paying your bills on your smartphone easier — it gives you rewards for paying your bills. When you download the Paytm Canada app and sign up, you immediately start earning points that can be redeemed for gift cards from some of your favourite brands, including Amazon.ca, Uber (and Uber Eats), Starbucks, lululemon, and so many more.
Paytm customers collect 1,000 Welcome Paytm Points upon signing up for the app. From there, you’ll receive 1 Paytm Point for every $1 paid towards bills or purchasing discounted e-gift cards in the app. The bill payment app keeps giving, as you’ll discover ways to bundle your bills to unlock bonus points that double and triple dip on the same bill payment – that’s right, you’ll get your credit card points AND Paytm Points. Next thing you know, you’ll have turned your points into a new pair of shoes and you’ll be feeling grateful that you paid your bills the Paytm way!
5 ways to say thank you with Paytm Points
Showing gratitude to others actually helps you more than it helps the person on the receiving end. The simple act of giving helps us to feel fulfilled and satisfied with our own lives.
Here are five simple ways to use those Paytm Points to show that special someone that you appreciate them:
1. Have dinner delivered to them
Who wouldn’t want to be surprised by dinner showing up unexpectedly at home after a hard day at work? Order that special someone food from their favourite restaurant through Uber Eats or foodora. Just imagine the expression on their face when they get a text from you telling them not to cook because dinner is on its way!
2. Take them out for coffee
Sometimes it’s the littlest gestures that go the longest way. Make it a ritual to take your bestie out (or that person you’ve been meaning to hang out with!) for a coffee, and feel the warmth of gratitude like a cozy blanket on a cold fall day.
3. Give them a book by their favourite author
One of the best ways to enjoy a cold fall day is to wrap up in a blanket with a good book, especially a real page-turner by your favourite author. If you’re not sure what to get, an e-gift card from Indigo gives them options and will be just as appreciated.
4. Take them to a movie
It’s not always easy to show gratitude in a way that is meaningful to everyone. But you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t love movies. When in doubt, take them to a movie or give them a set of Cineplex passes. If you’re really grateful, go VIP!
5. Get their makeup done by a pro before a big event
For someone who wants to make an impact at an important event, getting their makeup done by a makeup artist could be that extra pow they are looking for. An outing to Sephora with your pal is a fun way to spend some time together and show them how much you care. Don’t forget to call ahead to book your consultation.
Make it your goal to celebrate even the smallest of triumphs on a daily basis. Whether you reward yourself for paying your bills or do something special to show your gratitude to someone else, every day is a day to be thankful for.
