Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) yesterday handed out a total of $25,000 to 10 more monthly winners of the BIBD Aspirasi Reward Programme, bringing the total no of winners to 64 and a total of $250,000 in cash prizes given away since the launch of the programme.
The reward programme’s latest draw saw the May monthly winners rewarded for their patience in the programme and bring home $2,500 each.
Held at the BIBD Headquarters in the capital, the prizes were handed over by BIBD’s Deputy Chief Operating Officer, Haji Minorhadi bin Haji Mirhassan.
The BIBD Aspirasi Reward Program is unique as it does not have any closing date as customers will still be eligible for any of the prizes which also include an annual grand prize of a life-changing B$250,000 as long as they maintain their participation by saving in BIBD Aspirasi.
On top of monthly winnings, customers also stand a chance to win quarterly prizes of B$25,000.
The date for the draw of these winners will be announced via official BIBD channels, and customers who have kept their BIBD Aspirasi accounts open for a minimum of ninety days up to the draw will be eligible for both monthly and quarterly prizes.
The next round of draw for the monthly and quarterly winners will be in June.
Those who are subscribed since the launch of the programme until March 11, 2019, are eligible for the next quarterly prizes.
However, those who are interested to participate in the investment programme have until June 30, 2019, to subscribe and still get the opportunity to win the monthly and grand prizes.
Hajah Nurul Akmar binti Haji Md Jaafar said: “Alhamdulillah, with the support of our customers and Bruneians in general, this programme continues to be successful and beneficial. This means our winners understood the importance of this programme that it is both financially rewarding and is helping Bruneians practice the savings habit.”
“We are very delighted to have been able to introduce a programme that supports the national agenda of creating a financially literate society in Brunei.
She added: “It’s never too late to begin saving to realise your aspirations as the programme only requires customers to start their savings with a mere B$500 and to keep their investment in BIBD Aspirasi for at least ninety days prior to each draw date.”
