Doha Bank’s Al Dana savings programme, the leading savings scheme in Qatar, announced the winners of its first draw of the year 2014 which awarded one lucky winner with QR 1 million prize.
The QR 1 million prize winner Mr. Jassem Yousef Al Suwaidi said: “I cannot thank Doha Bank enough, for going above and beyond what is required to ensure customer satisfaction. After 24 years of banking with Doha Bank, my experience is highlighted by dedicated service, devotion and support from the bank. Doha Bank has fulfilled its promise of rewarding its customers through Al Dana which is a symbol of credibility and reliability. I would like to thank my Personal Relationship Officer and the Al Riyada Team for their commitment in always providing priority service. I will continue investing more in Al Dana and would urge all my friends and family to do the same.”
Doha Bank Group CEO, Dr. R. Seetharaman said: “Customer satisfaction is our biggest priority and we are always happy to hear that our long term customers are able to reflect on positive experiences over extended periods such as two decades. We congratulate Mr. Jassem Yousef Al Suwaidi on his win and thank him for his kind words. We hope to welcome a few more million riyal winners to our Al Dana Family before the end of the year and we wish them the best of luck in the upcoming draws.”
A winner of QR 500,000 and QR 100,000 were also announced during the ceremony. The winner of the dedicated KWD 5000 draw for an international branch customer was won by a customer from the Kuwait branch of Doha Bank. 10 winners of QR 10,000 and 5 Young Savers who won brand new iPad4 devices were also announced.
Dr. Seetharaman added: “The 2014 prize campaign is focussing on a core customer strategy of ‘Al Dana for Everyone’ which as the prizes suggest means there is something for everyone and for all ages. During the course of the year, more winners will be added to the Al Dana family, with plenty of opportunities for past winners to add to their tally in the various monthly, bi-monthly and quarterly draws.”
Doha Bank Head of Retail Banking Mr. Suresh Bajpai said: “The campaign is running in parallel in both Qatar and Kuwait, where we have received positive customer feedback. Al Dana 2014 benchmarks at the highest customer satisfaction level within this category of savings programmes. This is because of the diversity of the prize pool that ensures people with varied savings capacity are able to win from a range of prizes, giving each customer multiple chances of winning every month and every quarter.”
The main QR 1 million Quarterly Draws are open to all eligible customers maintaining a minimum balance of QR 1,000, with special draws dedicated for those maintaining higher balances.
Quarterly draws include all customers maintaining an account balance of just QR 1,000 during the months of the eligible quarter.
Customers holding Al Dana savings balances of QR 1,000 and above are automatically entered into monthly draws that will award QR10,000 each to 10 lucky winners each month. Those maintaining balances of at least QR 50,000 will be eligible for special additional draws that will reward one lucky customer each month with monthly prizes of QR 100,000.
A notable new draw in this year’s prize structure is the bi-monthly QR 500,000 prize draw which automatically registers customers maintaining a balance of QR350,000 during the eligibility period.
