Sri Lanka’s most customer-friendly bank, HNB PLC announced the launch of its special New Year savings campaign for general and minors’ savings accounts throughout March and April, with a view to recognising and rewarding the savings habit among all of its valued customers in celebration of the Sinhala and Tamil New Year season.
Through the new campaign, customers who make deposits between Rs. 25,000 and Rs. 3 million in their general savings accounts during March and April will be provided with their choice of special gifts from HNB.
Elaborating on the unique features of this season’s New Year Savings campaign HNB Senior Manager – Deposits Viranga Gamage said: “Our main goal with this year’s ‘campaign is to incentivize savings and make the whole process fun and exciting for the whole family and we are confident that we have really delivered on that promise this New Year season.”
“This year also marks the return of our highly popular gift voucher system, which HNB was first to introduce to the Sri Lankan market in 2016. Together with one of the largest selection of electric, electronic, home appliances and ceramic gifts, we are able to offer our valued customers unmatched value for their savings, and I believe that is what sets HNB ahead of the market,” he noted.
Expanding on the vast array of gift choices available in last year’s campaign, HNB’s New Year campaign now offers both new and existing HNB customers an array of gifts – including smart phones, HD TVs, laptops, kitchen utensils and household items, washing machines, fridges, water pumps, gas cookers, and specially designed 22-carat gold engraved branded tea sets and mugs from Royal Fernwood commemorating HNB’s 130th anniversary.
Notably, all HNB gift vouchers for this New Year campaign can be redeemed at any Abans, Singer, or Damro outlet, providing customers with unprecedented choice this season.
In addition to HNB’s general savings campaign, the bank also announced the parallel launch of its popular ‘Minor Savings New Year Campaign’ to reward HNB Singithi customers of all ages during this year’s festive season.
Emphasising the traditional and cultural significance of the Sinhala and Tamil New Year, this year’s minors’ savings campaign will mainly provide Singithi customers with gifts that are themed for the season.
Accordingly, Singithi customers who make a deposit of Rs. 10,000 will receive a nerenchi game set while a Rs. 25,000 deposit receive a hover ball game set and a Rs. 50,000 deposit will receive an olinda wooden game set, over and above the extensive gifts provided to Singithi customers throughout the year to further encourage the savings habit. Further Singithi depositors will also be eligible to receive their gifts from existing Singithi Jumbo Land gift scheme
