In addition, both winners received a complimentary cash prize of €3,000 each that was deposited into their BOV Visa card accounts.
The promotion which ran between the 30th March and the 28th April, was organised by Bank of Valletta in collaboration with Visa, and was open to all BOV Visa cardholders who used their BOV Visa debit card or BOV Visa credit card to effect purchase transactions, whether online or at retail outlets.
Whilst congratulating Grima and Hili, Camilleri said that he is glad this promotion was succesful as it will lead to more people using their cards to effect payments. He explained that statistics show that card payments are on the increase, but traditional methods of payment like cash or cheques are still popular.
He added: “At Bank of Valletta, we continue to invest in alternative methods of payments and digital channels, such as contactless cards that spell important benefits for both cardholders and merchants, as well as the new BOV Internet Banking that has been launched in May, with a view to make the customer experience simpler and more seamless.”
