“I’m very grateful to Standard Bank for this Christmas and New year gift. I would encourage other customers to start shopping using Visa cards as it is secure and bring comfortability to the user,” said Banda
Standard Bank Head of Personal and Business Banking Dr Margaret Kubwalo-Chaika said the promotion; dubbed “Transact & Win” aims to give the bank’s customers an opportunity to maximize usage of their VISA debit cards during the festive season.
“This promotion is a continuation of our bank’s effort to deliver convenience, unparalleled security and comfort to our customers and those of other banks holding VISA cards. No need to move around with bulk cash this Christmas,” said Kubwalo.
The bank has so far dishes out prizes to lucky customers who are using Visa Cards for online payments (E-Commerce) and payments at Point of Sale machines locally and abroad.
