Oliver Opara, FCMB’s Regional Head, South South and South East, said the objectives of the promo were to encourage a savings culture in the country, improve the lives and businesses of customers, which align with the bank’s mission statement, and also to reward the bank’s customers for their loyalty. Hence, the promotion is being targeted primarily at savings accounts.
According to Akeem Mustafa, FCMB’s Segment Head, Premium Banking, some of the customers who invested in the Millionaire Savings Promo had also attested to injecting the N1,000,000 and other amounts won as additional working capital into their businesses. Some had used it to pay out outstanding loans, whilst others said they saved it for a rainy day. All of these once again, giving credence to FCMB’s strategic focus of being a more supportive bank for its customers.
The FCMB Millionaire Promo is a special savings scheme, which offers customers an exciting opportunity to win N1,000,000 and other cash prices while at the same time helping them save and enhance their savings.
All a customer needs to do is save in an FCMB Millionaire Promo certificate in multiples of N10,000 and the customer will be given a unique certificate number which will go into a random selection of winners. To qualify for the N1,000,000 grand price, savings of at least two units worth N20,000 for a minimum of 30 days is required. The more units the customer saves, the higher the chances of winning.
Customers with only one unit of saving certificate (worth N10,000) are also eligible for consolation prizes. This is in addition to a one-percent interest accruable on the savings.
