GCB Bank’s G-Money, a mobile money service has launched the ‘be a Gee-twa tum’ promo to reward its agents, existing subscribers and prospective customers.
The promo, which is expected to end in March 2020, will see subscribers win a wide range of electrical appliances at the end of each month. The ultimate prize will be two brand new cars for the customer with the highest transaction and the highest transacting agent.
Rewards are dependent on the accumulation of points and these points are earned based on the number of transactions the customer performs. There are points for the individual customer and those for agents.
Speaking at the launch, Head of Marketing for G-Money, Mary Dugbatey noted that prize items will be distributed at various regional offices of GCB Bank and specific locations for pick up.
“To enable convenient sign-on, we have incorporated the invite a friend option for those who are yet to come on board. In this process an existing customer can invite a friend by dialing *422#, select option 7 and follow the prompts.
The invited friend receives a code, goes onto the G-Money platform, dials in and select option 2 and then follows the prompts to register. This provision of convenience shows you how we as a brand are eager to reward Ghanaians for their patronage.”
