Kuala Lumpur, 10 February 2011
Hong Leong Bank (HLB) recently announced the contest winners of its two recently launched Junior and Senior Fixed Deposit contests at a prize-giving ceremony held at its head office in Kuala Lumpur. Both contests ran from 1 August 2010 to 30 November 2010 and were staged to offer depositors opportunities to win lavish prizes on top of the exceptionally high Fixed Deposit ("FD") interest rate of 5% p.a for long term tenures of 4 and 5 years.
The Junior Fixed Deposit Contest which was opened to all parents with children below 18 years old gave away 10 Grand Prizes of a 3D/2N stay at the Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore for a family of 4, plus a 1-day pass to Universal Studios. It also gave away 20 monthly prizes of an iPod Nano, Sony PSP, Sony Ericsson handphone and Samsung camera to participants of this contest.
To enter the contest, customers only need to deposit RM1,000 into the Junior Fixed Deposit Account and every RM1,000 entitles them to an automatic contest entry. This campaign attracted over 1.7 million contest entries and is one of HLB's most successful contests by far.
Simultaneously, the Senior Fixed Deposit Contest gave away luxury timepieces to 4 lucky winners out of 51,000 contest entries received from senior citizens aged 55 years old and above. One of the winners, Mrs. Tan Sock Kean said: "This is the first time in my life I have won something. I feel very privileged and thank Hong Leong Bank for this wonderful gift before Chinese New Year".
"We are pleased with our customers overwhelming response to these FD campaigns and are delighted to reward our valued customers for their trust in depositing with HLB. As a continuous effort in providing rewarding experiences to our customers, HLB has recently launched another 2 exciting deposit promotions giving away to the Grand Prize winners of an all-new Nissan Teana car and a family trip for 4 to M&M's World Las Vegas + USD1,000", said Ms. Susan Wong, General Manager, Retail Deposits and Debit Card.For further information, visit any of our HLB's branches nationwide, call 1-800-38-8888 during office hours or log on to www.hlb.com.my.
