Standard Bank partners SAA in Swipe, Fly & Win promo

20 Dec 2019

Lilongwe, 19th December 2019- Standard Bank has partnered with South African Airways (SAA) in a festive promotion that will see the airline’s customers win a range of exciting prizes if they purchase air tickets by swiping their Visa debit card on the bank’s point-of-sale machines.

These POS machines are those at SAA offices in Lilongwe and Blantyre including all travel agents across the country.

Announcing the launch of the promotion, Head, Business Development, Ben Wandawanda, said the Bank is using its digital offerings to create lasting memories to customers who plan to spend their Christmas and New Year holidays outside Malawi.

“Christmas and New Year is a time of vacation hence there is extensive travel within and across borders. In that regard Standard Bank is presenting a risk-free and efficient way for our customers to have a memorable holiday wherever they go,” says Wandawanda.

Wandawanda believes the impact of the promotion on the customers will yield to long-term use of the bank’s digital services.

“The world is now one digital space as such a promotion like this one introduces or entrenches to a customer meaningful and efficient ways of paying for goods and services in the modern world. We are hopeful that the experience attained in this period will translate into deep-rooted customer behavior,” she said.    

The grand prize is a 3- night accommodation trip to South Africa’s port city of Cape Town plus $1000 to spend. 

Other winners – to be drawn every fortnight – will walk away with a ticket to any destination in South Africa.
