Across the country, an increasing number of people are attesting to the way Skye Bank is transforming their lives through its “Reach for the Skye” Promo Draw, which is perhaps one of the longest promotions being run by a financial institution in Nigeria.

The Reach for the Skye Promo Draw which has seen several customers carting away N1M, N250, 000 and N100, 000 respectively, is a valid way of encouraging a savings’ culture while improving people’s lives and businesses. This month, the train for the next draw is moving to Watt Market in Calabar Cross River State Capital.

In a recent interview with some of the beneficiaries of the ongoing reward scheme; Ayanninuola Toyin from Idanre branch, Ondo State, a winner in the N100, 000 category, said she did not believe in the credibility of the promo draw until her account was credited with the said amount. “Since winning, I have been a brand ambassador for Skye Bank, informing people; both family and friends about this promo, because it is real unlike many others out there. I will rather save my money in a bank that looks after my best interest,” she said.

Supporting Ayanninuola’s comment, Ilechukwu Godwin Nwokebi, a winner in the N100, 000 category from Obosi branch, Anambra State explains that she prays for the bank daily, as his winnings came at a slightly difficult time in his life. “I am so happy that I cannot say much. But let me use this medium to encourage people to open either a Skye SavePlus or a Skye Ease account to benefit as well. This is the only way to understand the reality of this promo draw.”

According to Skye Bank, the ongoing ‘Reach for the Skye Millionaire Reward’ scheme was instituted not just to encourage customers to save, but to reward them for doing so.

Commenting on the promo draw, Head, Retail Banking Group, Nkolika Okoli, said that the “Reach for the Skye” promo draw was established to encourage a savings culture amongst its customers. “The Reach for The Skye promo is not about us as a Bank or what we can get from customers, it is actually not a promo but a Corporate Social Responsibility program to reward mass market customers for saving their money in a Bank. This is to support the Central Bank of Nigeria's financial inclusion policy. So testimonials like this are what we envisaged when we commenced this campaign,” she said.

The Bank’s 'Reach for the Skye Millionaire' reward scheme is an ongoing initiative which will see the bank give away the sum of 60 million naira in one year to customers who operate the Skye Save Plus and Skye Ease savings account types with a minimum credit balances of N2,000 on an incremental basis. The higher the account balances, the more the chance of winning.
