Access Bank Plc has said it will be rewarding its customers with millions of naira, smartphones and other amazing prizes in the AccessMore mega reward scheme.
This, it stressed, was part of its strategy to drive easy, effective and rewarding banking using its AccessMore mobile app.
According to the bank, N10 million to N12 million will be doled out to its customers between now and December 2022. The bank disclosed this to media during its first phase of the AccessMore Mega prize presentation which was held in Lagos.
Speaking at the presentation, head, Marketing and Communications, Access Bank, Chioma Afe, said the app was launched in 2020 as a way to encourage customers to use the app to make transactions due to the lockdown.
Afe noted that the bank saw increased patronage of the app and decided reward its customers by introducing the reward initiative in 2022.
“We kept it simple. We kept it in the app and we said, if you make N100 on the rewards, you can just quickly redeem it or we keep reminding you because it is available for you for a period of time. You can use it to offset bills such as light bills, Cable bills and so we saw customers do it consistently from 2020.
“So, in 2022, we decided to do something to reward our customers so that more people can tap into the rewards and see the benefits for them, especially to refer other customers and to give them something more.
“We pegged some money down and I think in total we will be giving out about N10 million to N12 million including the trip between now and December. Hence, we have cash prizes, gadgets, Iphones and other amazing prizes for our customers,” she said.
Corroborating her, senior banking adviser, Retail Banking at Access Bank, Rob Giles, said that the first phase involved the bank rewarding about five customers with N100,000 and N1 million while adding that the grand prize winners will go to Dubai at the end of the year for a five days trip.
Giles explained, “The steps to take to enjoy rewards on the app are quite easy. Simply download the AccessMore app, register (signup) and opt into Access Rewards & Referrals on the app to get 100 points. Each complete referral you make earns you additional 100 points. Once you onboard 20 to 30 new people onto the AccessMore app, you get 2000 to 3000 points, respectively and this qualifies you for a chance to win cash prizes of up to N1 million.
“Customers can also stand a chance to win iPhone 13 phones, and other cash prizes of N100,000 and N50,000 and other amazing rewards. The great thing is, the more you transact, the more points you earn.”
