Two lucky Maybank customers ran away with an iPhone 7 and $1,000 cash respectively on Saturday at the conclusion of the four-month long Maybank Awesome Race campaign.

According to Maybank Cambodia CEO Cynthia Liaw, over 120,000 entries had been made into the lucky draw between 15 June and 15 October, with finalists selected based on those who most actively used Maybank internet or mobile banking, or Maybank visa debit cards.

“This is yet another campaign to provide better value proposition to our customers, where they can enjoy greater value when they use our products and services and conduct their day-to-day transactions with us,” said Liaw.

“This unique, first-of-its-kind campaign generated a lot of excitement which offers exciting prizes. Additionally, our customers were also treated to an exciting experience with the ‘Maybank Awesome Race’, where they get to travel across Phnom Penh on tuk-tuks, following a series of clues and solving riddles using the Maybank Mobile Banking App.”

Tea Sak Yous, who won a brand new iPhone 7 on Saturday, admired the simplicity of the competition.

“I just had to use the Maybank internet or mobile banking to transfer funds or place fixed deposits, which was convenient as I did not have to travel to the branch. Next thing you know, Maybank called to inform that I was selected as a finalist of this contest.”

Cash winner Sou Monypich, meanwhile, received her place in the finals thanks to regular use of her debit card.

“Instead of using cash for my daily shopping, I had decided to use my Maybank card,” she said. “I get to redeem for free gifts when I spend more than $500 for every three-month cycle, and now I even get to participate in this campaign, which won me a cash prize of $1,000!”

Cambodian celebrities including models Lun Bodalis, Hang Soriyan and Sin Sophie, and actors Sok Sokonita and Vy Yaro also joined the event, having helped raise $1,000 for Maybank’s CSR project to rebuild the People Improvement Organization Shelter, which provides free non-formal education and vocational training to some of the most vulnerable women and children in Cambodia.
