Access Bank says it is rewarding loyal customers with cash rewards and other reward items up to N1bn for funding, transacting, maintaining, and increasing their deposits between October 2022 and November 2023, through its Access Winfest campaign aimed at promoting a savings culture and efficient banking among Nigerians using alternative channels.
A statement by the bank quoted Victor Etuokwu, its Deputy Managing Director, Retail, North, as saying “over the past two decades, Access Bank has continued to grow in every dimension, particularly its customer base, due to customers like you whose patronage, advocacy, and loyalty have remained unparalleled. At Access Bank, we care most about how happy our customers are, and we hope to find more chances like this one to make their lives and the lives of many other Nigerians better.”
Many of lucky customers, whether students, business owners, a salary earners, or entrepreneurs, he said, “will receive cash rewards from the bank ranging from N5,000 to N5,000,000; airtime rewards; grocery baskets; Salary4Life; rent for a year; business grants; educational support; and many other types of rewards.”
To join the winning train, the bank expects customers to “increase the balance on your account, carry out transactions using our USSD code *901# and the accessMore app to pay bills, send money to loved ones, buy airtime, and make international money transfers, among other things.”
The statement also quoted Rob Giles, its Senior Retail Advisor as recently saying at a media at the campaign’s launch in Lagos that the idea behind the campaign is to keep the bank’s promise to reward customers for their loyalty and continued business.
He noted that to participate in the ‘Fund and Win’ campaign and be eligible to win between N5,000 and N5,000,000, customers are to save up to a minimum of N25,000 every month in their “savings or business account to earn a chance that qualifies you for a chance to win N5,000,000.00.
“You can also be one of the 1,000 lucky winners of N5,000 monthly. For every N25,000 you save, you get a ticket for the Mega draw and increase your chances of winning the grand prize in the ‘Fund and Win’ campaign.”
For Adaeze Umeh, Group Head of Consumer Banking at Access Bank, the rewards campaign is just one of the many ways the bank adds value and meets the needs of its most loyal customers.
She assured that Diamond Business Advantage (DBA) customers with outstanding monthly fees are not left out as they can fund with the equivalent of their accrued fees to enjoy a 100% waiver and stand a chance to be among the lucky 1,000 customers to win N5,000 in the monthly draw and qualify to win N5,000,000.00.
Apart from funding and maintaining accounts to qualify for the draw, customers who perform at least five fee-earning transactions weekly will also qualify to win N5,000 monthly, while those with an account balance below N1,000 can fund their accounts with a minimum of N2,000 to get their debit cards and transact at least five (5) times a week to qualify to win N5,000 monthly or the grand prize of N5,000,000.00.
Umeh stressed that customer who already have or open a domiciliary account and fund it with at least $100 (or its equivalent) will also be eligible to win the grand prize of N5,000,000 and N5,000 in the monthly draw; this offer is available to both existing and new customers.
