May the Fourth be with you!
First, for the saddest disclaimer we’ll ever give. For all our ground-breaking ideas, technological innovation and impeccable martial prowess, Wirex cannot turn you into a Jedi. Yes, Pavel can levitate objects using the power of thought and perform astonishing acts of physical strength – but that’s only because he practices every day and doesn't neglect his core. The rest of us will just have to make do with twirling broomsticks around our living rooms (zhhhhmmmmm), or pretending to open automatic doors with our minds.
But even if there are no lightsaber skills, Jedi mind tricks or astral projection, we can give you powers that most people can only dream of. You can still be a force for good in the universe – here's how:
“Republic Credits are no good out here...”
You know that feeling when your J-type Diplomatic Barge crash-lands in a desert backwater and you need to pay repairs but you only have a purse full of Republic Credits? We’ve all been there at some point.
Well, Qui-Gon should’ve known to take his Wirex card when travelling off-planet. Not only is it the same colour as Yoda’s face, it also automatically converts currencies at point-of-sale with zero exchange fees. Qui-Gon's Wirex card could have instantly exchanged those pesky Republic Credits to local currency with no fuss or fanfare, allowing the ship to be repaired tout-suite. It might have derailed the plot of Episode 1 somewhat, but that’s a sacrifice we’re willing to make.
“The force will be with you. Always.”
Whether or not you believe in the force is increasingly a religious matter, and absolutely none of our business. Whether you identify with the light or dark sides of the force, the idea of a universal energy that exists to encourage and empower us is extremely reassuring.
You might be wondering, “how will they shoehorn Wirex features into a paragraph about the force?” Easy. We also have an invisible force that gives you unbeatable power, whether you notice it or not – it's called your Savings Bonus. It earns you up to 6% (12% for a limited time!) annually on the balance of your WXT account, and you’ll never have to lift a finger. When Obi-Wan told Vader, “If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine,” we think he was probably talking about his Savings Bonus.
“In my experience there is no such thing as luck.”
But there is such thing as Cryptoback™ rewards. And it earns you up to 2% back in crypto on every purchase you make with your Wirex card, whether you’re settling your tab at the Mos Eisley cantina, repairing your pod racer at Watto’s shop or browsing the latest fashions on Coruscant. Did we mention that, depending on your price plan, you’ll earn Cryptoback™ rewards for in-store and online spending? Sounds pretty lucky to us.
“Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
Yoda is right. Until you join Wirex, verify your account, order your card and activate it, you can’t benefit from phenomenal rates, instant crypto rewards and multicurrency spending. There’s a whole universe of next-gen features waiting to be unlocked, so what are you waiting for? Join us - and together we can rule the galaxy as father and son!
