Hong Leong Bank Gives Away 2 Cars To Grand Prize Winner
In June last year, Hong Leong Bank (HLB) launched its innovative Hong Leong Bank Touch n Go Zing MasterCard contest for its cardmembers. The contest drew more than 60,000 participants across the nation. Today, the Bank announced the Grand Prize winner of the contest at one of Kang Valley's busiest shopping mall, 1-Utama. This contest is rather unique because the grand prize consists of not 1 but 2 continental cars, a gleaming Peugeot 607 and a sporty Peugeot 206 Cabriolet. Mr Soo Hye Chong from Shah Alam is the Grand Prize winner. Some other forty lucky winners walked away with attractive prizes such as a Samsung 42" Plasma TV, Samsung home theatre systems and Samsung mobile phones.
Mr Peter England, HLB's Chief Operating Officer, Personal Financial Services, who was there to present the prizes said "we are always looking for ways to show our customers how much we value their patronage and business. This contest was held with a purpose to reward both our new and existing credit cardmembers."
Mr Soo Hye Chong, the grand prize winner, has been the Bank's customer since 2003. "According to the much elated Soo, "I don't consider myself lucky but blessed with this win which is totally unexpected as this is the first time I've actually won something. I am definitely going to use these 2 nice looking cars to replace my older ones."
The Hong Leong Bank Touch n Go Zing MasterCard contest was open to cardmembers who applied for the Hong Leong MasterCard between 1 July 2004 and 30 June 2005 or have spent a minimum of RM50 with their credit card. It was launched in conjunction with the introduction of Hong Leong Bank's Touch 'n Go Zing MasterCard, with Auto-Reload feature. This card, which is a separate card from the Hong Leong MasterCard, gives cardmembers perfect peace of mind as they drive. Each time the value of the Touch 'n Go Zing MasterCard falls below RM50, it will be automatically auto-loaded with RM100. This RM100 will then be charged to the MasterCard credit card account - a hassle-free process!
Apart from the prize giving ceremony, shoppers also witnessed some interesting stage activities such as Most Creative Hair-do Contest, Lipstick Applying Contest and Colouring Contest.
