Calling it "Happy Rebate Day", NZME's Flava radio show hosts Pua Magasiva and Sela Alo helped celebrate the day, hitting the streets of Auckland this week to "put-pocket" unsuspecting Kiwis with cash.
The experience was filmed as the pair walked around the streets putting cash into people's back pockets, bags - even giving away money to drivers waiting in traffic.
The Flava hosts also stuffed cash into a neatly folded blanket under a bench for a homeless person.
The passersby were initially caught off-guard, but later smiled and thanked the pair.
The pranksters had creative ideas to give away money - attaching cash to a fishing rod and moving it around in front of a man, and putting money in a hood of a woman's coat.
Magasiva, a Shortland Street star, even tried his luck camouflaging himself in a leaf costume, but eventually ran after passersby to slip the cash into their back pockets.
The Co-Operative bank, owned fully by its customers, will give $2.1 million to more than 130,000 of its customers today, after making a 16 per cent increase in profits ahead of the previous financial year.
Customers can expect between $10 to $600 back, based on the level of investments, and the balance of deposits in their accounts.
