Kuala Lumpur, 23 March 2010
Opening a Hong Leong Flexi FD account from Hong Leong Bank (HLB) turned out to be a blessing for Lee Choon from Petaling Jaya. The 66 year old found himself the proud owner of a brand new 2.5L Nissan X-Trail when he was announced the grand prize winner of the Hong Leong Flexi FD contest.
The contest was opened to the Bank's customers who signed up for the Hong Leong Flexi FD account between 9 September 2009 to 31 January 2010. The Hong Leong Flexi FD is an innovative 12-month FD that allows customers early partial withdrawal with no loss in interest to the remaining FD balance. The FD also comes with the convenience of checking facility, automatic fund transfer from FD to current account for cheques and monthly interest crediting.
Lee Choon received the key to his new ride from HLB's Head of Retail Deposits, Ms Susan Wong and Dato Dr Ang Bon Beng, Executive Director of Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd (ETCM) at a ceremony held at the Nissan showroom in Kuala Lumpur. The contest was co-sponsored by ETCM.
"I thought it was a joke when I was told that I won a Nissan X-Trail," said Lee Choon. "I am very happy and sincerely thank Hong Leong Bank for this wonderful gift." Lee Choon opened his Hong Leong Flexi FD Account in October 2009.
"The contest is our way of showing gratitude to our customers and we will continue to hold other promotions and contests to reward them" said Susan. "The Hong Leong Flexi FD helps our customers earn a better return for their hard earned savings. It offers convenience, peace of mind plus, it is flexible and can be withdrawn at anytime with no impact to the remaining balance unlike traditional FD product".
The Hong Leong Flexi FD received tremendous response with more than 5000 accounts opened within the promotion period.
The Bank recently revised its FD interest rates following the OPR increase on March 4, 2010 and now offers 2.75%p.a for Hong Leong Flexi FD.
