Caltex Gives Away Gold Accounts To Lucky Customers
It was a joyous moment for 20 lucky winners who took home a total of RM280,000 in Maybank Gold Investment Accounts.
One of four RM40,000 worth of ‘gold’ First Prize winners, Mohd Asri Abdullah, 45, from Kelantan was represented by his wife Siti Nor Arashyiah. Siti shared that the family are still in a state of shock and had yet to decide on what to do with the winnings.
Youngest First Prize winner Chok Yung Hau, 25, from Port Dickson almost missed his windfall. “I am grateful to God as when the official Caltex winner notification came through, I was onboard a flight and could not answer the call. However, they kept on trying and during the third attempt, I arrived at the airport and was informed about the surprising news of me being a first prize winner,” said the electric shop owner.
Initially dubious by the official winner notification call, First Prize winner Lee Siew Yin, 51, from Labis immediately set a lawyer to contact her neighborhood Caltex petrol station for verification. Upon confirmation of her RM40,000 worth in ‘gold’ windfall, Lee was delighted.
Azizan bin Abdul Hamid, 50, from Ipoh plans to channel his RM40,000 worth in ‘gold’ towards his children’s future and education. The first time winner was appreciative of the opportunity awarded by Caltex, particularly as an active participant in previous promotions.
“Peraduan KeEMASan dengan Caltex aimed to reward our customers’ invested support towards the Caltex brand and quality products with worthy prizes across our network. From the faces of our winners, we are happy to note that we hit that mark. We continue to strive towards ensuring Caltex helps customers enjoy their respective journeys,” said Jeremy Oh, Country Chairman, Chevron Malaysia Limited.
Running from December 22, 2011 to March 31, 2012, the promotion offered a bounty of prizes totaling RM280,000 worth in ‘gold’ to eligible customers with a minimum purchase of RM40 in a single receipt at Caltex service stations nationwide. Prizes included four First Prizes of RM40,000; eight Second Prizes worth RM10,000; eight Third Prizes worth RM5,000 and 1,688 Caltex StarCash cards totaling RM199,184 in value.
