Bank of Palestine announced the launch of the largest campaign for the saving accounts program in Palestine, which is based on the formation of groups with a maximum of five savings accounts for five people within each group, under the title “together you save, together you win”. A draw for the accounts of the subscribers to the new campaign will take place on daily basis, with prizes up to $30,000.
Mr. Hashim Shawa, Chairman and General Manager of Bank of Palestine, confirmed that the campaigns aims to enhance the savings culture within the Palestinian society, and increase the chances of all savers at Bank of Palestine to win daily prizes. He confirmed that the Bank proceeds in providing the best and most advanced and sophisticated programs that meets the expectations of the customers who wish to save at the Bank.
Mr. Thaer Hamayel, Marketing and Public Relations Director at Bank of Palestine, confirmed that the new campaign aims to encourage the customers and citizens to open savings accounts at the Bank through Groups. Each customer with a savings account can establish a group of new accounts from family members, friends, neighbors or colleagues, with up to 5 people within one group, to give them a chance to win daily prizes together, with a value up to $30,000 on daily basis; i.e., a prize of $5,000 for each group member. In order for the group members to benefit from the prizes, they need to have at least $200 (or equivalent in other currencies) at their savings accounts in the Bank. If the founder of the group “Group President’ wins, then the entire group will win, which means each member will receive the $5,000 prize, which amounts the total value of the daily prizes to $25,000. The value of the daily prizes can reach the amount of $30,000 if one of the group members establishes another group, and when the other group wins, all its members will win, in addition to the founder of the first group.
Hamayel indicated the ability to open savings accounts to groups of family members, friends and colleagues of all ages, who wish to save any amount, and that each $200 has a chance to enter the draw; the larger the savings amount is, the more chances to win. Noting that any previous customer with a savings account and do not wish to establish a new group will still enter the daily draw with a chance to win the daily prize of $5,000.
The Bank allocated several media channels for inquiries about the savings campaign and about the winners of the prizes, by following the local newspapers and radio stations, in addition to the Bank’s Facebook page and website www.bankofpalestine.com.
