Cash Clever

EditorTVCs, News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Today: Downtown full-service Dentsu shop WiTH Collective has created a new campaign showcasing the different ways ASB has been helping Kiwi kids get cash clever.

ASB head of community & sponsorship Mark Graham said: “We know that learning good money management skills from a young age helps set kids up for a better financial future, and ASB has been helping teach these skills to Kiwi kids for more than 100 years – something we’re incredibly proud of.

“This latest campaign celebrates that legacy in a fun and engaging way, while highlighting several generations of cash clever kids.

“From penny bank accounts, to school banking, Kashin money boxes, GetWise financial education in schools, right through to innovative products like Clever Kash [a digital money box], ASB has been helping the next generation of kids develop the right savings habits for over 100 years.

“The new campaign out of WiTH sees us travel back to the summer of 1994 where the only social currency you had was how good you were at chatter rings or jump rope. Where $2 for a car wash was a fair price and painting your neighbour’s fence could score you $5.

“The campaign, which launched on Sunday night, takes us back to a simpler time and where we see our loveable characters in Ben and Amy first meet.

“Whilst things may have changed since then, the new spot reminds us that ASB continues to innovate and help the next generation of Kiwi kids save and get one step ahead.”

“Being a kid of the 90s, I can safely say that this campaign took me back.”

WiTH Collective GM John Marshall said: “Being a kid of the 90s, I can safely say that this campaign took me back.

It reminded me I wasn’t that great at chatter rings and that my dad ripped me off with $2 for a lawn mow.

“However, when developing the strategy for the campaign it reminded us all that ASB has been helping Kiwi kids get better with money for so long now. That became the basis of the campaign and we wanted to bring that to life in a fun, nostalgic and educational way.

“I believe the team has done a fantastic job in doing just that.”

WiTH CD Jack Delmonte said: “My first job was for the pharmacy down the road, delivering prescriptions to the elderly on my skateboard.

“Through hard work and getting into good savings habits through ASB, I was eventually able to afford myself a sweet new pair of Independent trucks.

“It was awesome to dabble in some 90s nostalgia through the production process. The team’s done an amazing job bringing to life Ben and Amy’s backstory and the long legacy ASB has of helping kids get cash clever.”

The campaign launched in all above-the-line channels and throughout social on Sunday.
