Sri Lanka’s benchmark private sector bank is offering recipients of remittances the chance to win a veritable treasure trove of 101 gifts – a car, four scooters, 12 LED TVs and 84 cash prizes in its exciting ‘Gedarata Thégi’ (Gifts for the Home) promotion unveiled on 18th January.
Users of e Exchange, Commercial Bank’s own money transfer service, as well as those who receive remittances via MoneyGram, Express Money and Ria from 1stJanuary to 31st December 2017 will automatically go into a series draws in respect of each quarter of the year to win these prizes, the Bank said.
Holders of a Commercial Bank remittance card, a branded debit cum ATM card licensed by Visa Inc. – who receive remittances via the Bank during the year, will double their winning chances at these draws.
Three quarterly draws have been scheduled for the 17th of each month in April, July and October 2017, at which recipients of remittances in the preceding three months will vie for a scooter, three LED TVs and 21 cash prizes of Rs 10,000 each, per draw. The grand draw on 17th January 2018 will offer the same prizes plus a Datsun Redi-GO car.
“There are many reasons why Commercial Bank is already a preferred choice for remittances,” the Bank’s Chief Manager eBanking and Remittances Pradeep Banduwansa said. ‘Nevertheless, we look for ways every year to add value and enliven the process by rewarding recipients in meaningful ways. This year’s Gedarata Thégi promotion will certainly generate much excitement in the market.”
Commercial Bank is one of the most active players in Sri Lanka in the field of remittances, offering customers a range of options including ‘e-Exchange’ – the bank’s own sophisticated real-time on-line money transfer service, as well as international money transfer services such as MoneyGram, Ria and Express Money remittance services.
