Access Bank Turning More Customers to Millionaires
Access Bank Plc few days ago splashed over N50 million no fewer than 1,044 customers in its DiamondXtravaganza Season 11 reward promo aimed at enhancing savings culture.
The Bank’s Head, Retail Products, Mr Robert Giles, said at the reward ceremony in Lagos that the initiative was introduced in 2008 to boost savings culture and financial inclusion.
Giles said that the Diamondxtra initiative which had been running for 11 years had constantly grown with the number of prizes given out every year.
He stated that over N50 million was given out in form of cash to winners’ across the country.
Giles said that the bank had given out five billion naira to lucky customers since the inception of DiamondXtra initiative.
“As at the end of last year, we have given out N5 billion in prizes since inception,” he said.
According to him, there have been over 20,000 beneficiaries.
Giles described DiamondXtra as a unique product introduced into the market by the bank based on feedback from customers.
He explained that salary for life, rent for a year and educational support were all introduced based on customers experiences and feedback.
Giles noted that the initiative had helped in growing the bank’s deposit base and as well helped in transforming the lives of Nigerians by giving them the chance to win.
“Now we are seeing that customers are able to use that fund to start new businesses and this is impacting on their lives.
“This product has been a successful product since the launch and we have significantly more than one million customers who save with DiamondXtra and you do not have to have a large amount to save.
“For every N5, 000 you save, you get one entry into the prize draw and that entry could win you any category of our prizes.
“The special thing about season 11 is the difference we are making for people by giving rent allowance for a year, and we had winners today who won in that category, as well as education grant for five years, that is something that is really impressive in this season,” Giles said.
Also speaking, the Bank’s Group Head, Consumer Banking, Adaeze Umeh, stated that more exciting features would be added in Season 12, as well as more winners.
“Season 12 is going to be much bigger because we have gotten feedback and insights from our customers.
“This initiative has been there for 11 years and so we have a lot of strong followership and each season we try to build in what our customers love and will want in a new season as it is a product aimed at transforming lives.
So, we encourage Nigerians to keep faith in us even as we get to launch the new season next month”, Umeh said.
