Madam Ling Siew Ching from Kuching, Sarawak was the Grand Prize winner of the AmBank “Swipe and Spot the 8” Credit Card Campaign. The Mathematics Lecturer at UITM Sarawak was handed over the keys to a brand new Toyota Vellfire at the prize presentation ceremony held at the UMW Toyota Showroom in Subang on 8 December 2016.

The AmBank Swipe and Spot the 8 Credit Card Campaign was created to reward all existing and new AmBank credit cardholders. To participate in the campaign, cardholders only had to register via a one-time SMS and then swipe a minimum of RM80 with their AmBank credit cards.  Cardholders who spot the digit “8” in their 6-digit approval code on their credit card sales slip were automatically entitled to the various prizes offered in this Campaign from the Toyota Vellfire as the Grand Prize to Daily Cash Back and eight monthly winners who received cash prizes of RM10,000 each.

Dato’ Sulaiman Mohd Tahir, Group Chief Executive Officer, AmBank Group said, “AmBank is consistently creating new and innovative products and services, bearing in mind the ever changing demands and needs of our customers. We believe in always rewarding our loyal customers and we are delighted to share this joyous occasion with Madam Ling today for her continuous loyalty since 2004. Our congratulations to her and a big thank you to all our customers for their overwhelming response during the AmBank Swipe and Spot the 8 Campaign”.

“I didn’t expect to win the Grand Prize and am very happy and at the same time grateful to AmBank for this pleasant surprise. I have been using the credit card for more than 10 years now,” said Madam Ling who was visibly pleased with her win.
