Winners of MCB Seychelles’ third cashless campaign initiative rewarded |08 February 2024
The Mauritian Commercial Bank has rewarded the 21 lucky winners of the cashless campaign, held from December 1, 2023 to January 15, 2024.
The prize-giving ceremony, which involved a star prize worth R100,000 and 20 R10,000 cash prizes, was held yesterday morning at the bank’s main office at Caravelle House. The cash prizes were presented by different members of the Mauritian Commercial Bank (MCB) Seychelles team.
The star prize was won by Roy Moumou. “I feel very happy. I was surprised after receiving a call saying I had won the star prize. This is a very good initiative by MCB,” said Mr Moumou, who added he only knew about the campaign through MCB’s advertisement on social media.
MCB Seychelles launched the ‘Win Big With Cashless’ campaign in partnership with visa. The purpose of the promotional campaign is to encourage the use of cashless transactions through MCB visa cards at point of sale (POS) machines and online payment.
To obtain a lottery ticket, the bank’s customers needed to only perform a transaction using their MCB Visa Debit (Classic & Platinum)/Credit cards (Classic & Gold) to pay online and on any POS terminals during the campaign period.
The draw took place on January 31, 2024 in the presence of the police.
Two other winners were Anne Wangui Wairimu and Jemmy Labiche who each won R10,000.
“I feel so very excited and so happy because I was not aware of the campaign, so it came as a shock,” shared Ms Wangui Wairimu.
The win also came as a shock to Mr Labiche. “I am not someone who is a fan of the cashless method, so it came as a surprise to me when I found out I was one of the winners,” said Mr Labiche.
The campaign was coordinated by Elaine Derjaques, marketing and communications manager at MCB Seychelles. “I want to congratulate all of you who participated in our campaign till the end,” said Ms Derjacques.
During yesterday’s ceremony, MCB’s customer service representative Belinda Baptiste shared information about the bank’s juice app, encouraging customers to make use of it.
“The juice app is a cocktail of all the services MCB has to offer, which is why we are encouraging everyone to download the app on their device for smoother transactions,” said Ms Baptiste.
This cashless campaign initiative was the third consecutive lucky draw held by MCB Seychelles since 2021, whereby five lucky winners won R5,000 for a year. In 2022 one lucky winner plus a guest were flown to the Fifa World Cup in Qatar whereby the winner won an all-inclusive package to attend the third place play-off match, final match and the closing ceremony.
Following this year’s monetary prizes, MCB Seychelles said it was already developing its 2024 campaign.
