A Bahraini housewife and mother of three, Nadia Al Amer won the ‘Eid Al Fitr’ Grand Prize draw of BMI Bank’s Ayadi Savings Scheme, rewarding her with $500,000.
“This is the first time I have ever won anything! I watched the Ayadi advertisements on TV during Ramadan and decided to open an account, as it seemed as a good investment regardless if I had won or not. I was so shocked when I received the call informing me of my win that I thought they must have had the wrong person. It took a while for the news to fully sink in,” Expressing her excitement at her big win, Nadia said.
“This has been the best and biggest Eid gift I have ever received, and completely unexpected. This is such a huge amount that I need to plan carefully how to spend it, with my priorities being paying off my loan and taking my family on a fun-filled vacation,” she added.
“This is the first big Ayadi Grand Prize to be given out during Eid since we have revamped our Savings Scheme earlier this year. Our Ayadi offers customers the opportunity to win biggest grand prizes given away by a Bahraini Bank during the three Eid’s totaling to $ one million, in addition to other monthly and quarterly prizes. The product has been growing from strength to strength as reflected in the positive growth in the portfolio as compared to previous years demonstrating the trust placed by customers in our scheme. My heartiest congratulations to Nadia on her big win,” Jamal Al Hazeem, Chief Executive Officer at BMI Bank, said.
Al Hazeem also wished all Ayadi customers luck for the next grand prize draw during ‘Eid Al Adha’, and noted that the last day for investing to boost their chanced to win $250,000 as well as 10 special cash prizes of $1,000 each is the 25th of September 2012.
BMI Bank offers its customers a refreshed scheme with a bigger prize pool of $1.69 million in 2012. In addition to the regular prizes, customers will now have an opportunity to win special extra prizes- 45 prizes of $1000 each and 2 prizes of 250 grams gold. Customers of the Ayadi Saving Scheme can win prizes on a monthly, quarterly basis as well as during the three Eids including the National Day. To be eligible for the prize money draw, customers can open an Ayadi savings account at all BMI Bank branches in Bahrain with a minimum deposit of BD 50.
