Ithmaar Bank, a Bahrain-based Islamic retail bank, held a special, one-time ‘loyalty draw’ for holders of its Thimaar Account, giving them an extra chance to win cash rewards. The event was held for long-time customers who have held Thimaar savings for more than a year but have not yet won a prize.
The 50 winners who were presented with US$1,000 each, will also continue to be eligible for the current enhanced version of the product, Thimaar 6, which was launched at the beginning of the year. With more than 4,000 prizes worth a combined US$2.3 million being presented throughout 2016, it offers more opportunities than ever before.
“Despite providing the highest chances of winning compared to any other prize-based account in the Kingdom, there remains loyal Thimaar customers who have just not been lucky enough yet,” said Ithmaar Bank Assistant General Manager, Head of Retail Banking, Mohammed Janahi. “We introduced this one-time draw as a way of rewarding them for their loyalty over the years and to show our appreciation to all our long-term customers.”
Thimaar 6 will provide US$3,600 in total daily prizes, one US$10,000 monthly prize, four cars and cash quarterly prizes totalling US$300,000, and US$600,000 in Eid prizes. Every BD50 maintained as an average daily balance qualifies a customer to enter the draws. The more customers save, and the longer they maintain balances in multiples of BD50, the more opportunities they have to win.
The draw was supervised by representatives from the Ministry of Industry and Commerce (MOIC), external supervisors, Key Point, and the Bank’s own internal auditors.
