DuitNow Launch Contest – First Winner to Take-Off on Dream Holiday with Malaysia Airlines
Kelana Jaya, 3 April 2019: Payments Network Malaysia Sdn Bhd (PayNet) in collaboration with Malaysia Airlines held a prize giving ceremony for the first winner of the DuitNow Launch Contest, which offers a total of RM4 million in life-changing prizes.
Four months ago, PayNet in collaboration with banks in Malaysia launched DuitNow, which allows bank customers to transfer money instantly and securely on a 24/7 basis at banks’ Internet or Mobile banking channels. DuitNow funds transfers can be directed using the recipients’ mobile numbers, MyKad or business registration numbers.
In conjunction with DuitNow’s launch, bank customers stand a chance to win amazing prizes including a RM1 million dream home, a total of RM1 million in cash prizes, a Mercedes-Benz GLC200, a Mercedes-Benz A200, five RM20,000 IKEA gift card shopping sprees, and a RM100,000 Malaysia Airlines holiday package. The DuitNow Launch Contest runs from 8 January to 31 May 2019, and all bank customers who use DuitNow may participate in the contest.
Sending money up to RM5,000 using DuitNow is free for consumers and SMEs. To receive money, bank customers need only perform a one-time DuitNow ID registration by linking their mobile numbers, MyKad or MyPR numbers, passport numbers, or business registration numbers with their bank accounts.
Upon completing this one-time registration, customers are eligible for the DuitNow Launch Contest whenever they make DuitNow payments. Every DuitNow funds transfer to a unique mobile number or ID number each day counts as one contest entry. Customers who previously registered or pre-registered for DuitNow are already eligible for the contest and can proceed to earn contest entries by sending money.
The first winner, Mr Eric Ngu Ting Wu, a customer of Public Bank Berhad, will be flying off on a RM100,000 Malaysia Airlines Dream Holiday package. Presenting the prize were Mr Peter Schiesser, Group Chief Executive Officer of Payments Network Malaysia alongside Mr Ignatius Ong, Group Chief Revenue Officer of Malaysia Airlines Berhad.
“I use DuitNow at Public Bank’s Internet Banking whenever I need to send money to my family and friends because it is convenient and easy to pay to their mobile numbers. I don’t need their bank account details to send them money. Best of all, my DuitNow transactions are free. I really didn’t expect to win a holiday of a lifetime,” said Mr Eric Ngu.
“DuitNow has received a phenomenal reception since its launch 3 months ago. We have more than 7 mil mobile numbers and identity card numbers registered to receive DuitNow payments, while transaction volume is growing more than 50% month-on-month," said Mr Peter Schiesser.
“We hope the DuitNow Launch Contest will continue to encourage more Malaysians to discover the unparalleled convenience of sending money and making payments with DuitNow. There’s still a Mercedes GLC200 and RM1 million house to be won. Winning one of our prizes will truly be a life-changing experience,” said Mr Schiesser.
Malaysia Airlines Group Chief Revenue Officer, Ignatius Ong added, “We would like to thank PayNet for bringing us in as one of their partners for this campaign. In the last couple of years, we have invested greatly in upgrading our products and services. With all these improvements, we are confident that the lucky winner, Mr Ngu will have a great holiday, beginning and ending with our Malaysian Hospitality. We look forward to welcoming Mr Ngu onboard Malaysia Airlines.”
