National Bank of Malawi (NBM) last week flew the winner of the bank’s Win a Dream Holiday Visa promotion to Mauritius for a four day fully sponsored holiday.
Businessman Juventus Flao together with his spouse flew out in business class on a Malawian Airlines flight from Lilongwe on Thursday and spent a night in Johannesburg, South Africa before connecting to Mauritius.
Flao hailed the bank for the trip saying he had been planning on going on a holiday with his wife for some time.
“This trip has come at a right time when we have been planning to go for a dream holiday with my wife and we thank National Bank for making our dream come true. We are excited,” Flao said.
NBM launched the promotion in December last year where the most frequent user with high value of the Visa Point of Sale Device (POS) was going to win the grand prize. Flao was announced winner at a function held in Blantyre last month.
Apart from being accommodated at one of the top Hotels in Mauritius, the Floas have also been given $1,000 (approximately K730,000) spending money for the holiday.
NBM Corporate Affairs Manager Annie Magola said the bank will continue adding value to its products and thanking its customers for their support.
“The promotion has removed the perception that use of POS is for the elite only. It is one of the safest ways of transacting as it gives security to customers since they do not have to carry cash whenever they go shopping or want to access various services. It also gives the customers convenience in that they do not have to go to the bank or ATM and cash but go straight to the merchants and pay using the Visa Card.”
“As a bank, we do not take the support we get from our customers for granted and it is through these kind of product promotions that we show our appreciation by giving our customers incentives to promote our business relationships,” Magola said.
During the promotion, the bank gave out cash backs to various customers who were regularly using the POS machines using NBM visa cards at designated places.
