Five lucky winners, two of which are Sadara Wealth Management customers, took home OMR 25,000 each in National Bank of Oman’s first monthly draw for its popular Al Kanz Savings Account. The draw, which took place in Marsa Plaza at Al Mouj Muscat, witnessed a number of attendees enjoying a march band and LED light stage performance, in addition, to an instant draw where 10 NBO customers and non-customers walked away with OMR 500 each, marking another first for the bank.
NBO recently introduced its new 2019 Al Kanz Savings Account scheme which promised even bigger rewards with more savings, offering 1,273 customers the chance to win a total of OMR 3.251 million in prize money. This year, four Al Kanz customers will clinch a total of OMR 1 million, double the prize money awarded in the 2018 scheme. Exclusive draws for Sadara, Mazaya and Youth customers, in addition to salary transfers and seasonal draws will also be held.
John Chang, General Manager and Chief Retail Banking Officer at NBO, said, “Our first Al Kanz draw of the year has been a resounding success and heartfelt congratulations goes out to all our winners. While these draws may simply appear to be attractive cash prizes, it is truly about providing customers with rewarding and financially sound solutions that help instill a habit of saving and better cash management.”
He added, “This is only the beginning with a lot more to come. This year’s scheme is an enhanced version with bigger cash prizes and we encourage all customers to take advantage of the unique opportunities Al Kanz presents.”
First introduced in 1995, Al Kanz Savings Account has been instilling a savings culture and encouraging customers to save for a better future by motivating them with cash rewards to realise their financial goals whether it’s in education, marriage, housing, owning a dream car or preparing for retirement. Customers are automatically eligible for the monthly prize draws by maintaining an average minimum balance of OMR 100 in their Al Kanz Savings account.
