Sampath Bank stepped up its efforts to emphasize and encourage the habit of saving amongst all Sri Lankans with the roll out of a host of rewards and benefits through its annual ‘Thrift Month’ savings promotion drive.
Going beyond regular gifts and incentives, Sampath Bank is offering face shields as part of the campaign’s rewards to deliver greater protection to its customers during the current global COVID-19 pandemic while promoting the habit of saving.
The Bank will be giving away large or small face shields to all customers making a deposit of Rs.5,000/- or more to a new or existing Sampath Pubudu or Sampath Sapiri children’s savings accounts during the month of October. Similarly, customers can avail a large face shield when depositing a sum of Rs.25,000/- or more to a new or existing Sampath Sanhinda Saver senior citizens savings account during the same period.
Face shields protect the entire face, including the eyes, which along with the nose and mouth can be a gateway for the coronavirus and other germs to enter the body. Used in combination with other health and safety measures like wearing face masks, maintaining social distancing, and washing and sanitising our hands, face shields can play a significant role in controlling the spread of the virus. Thus, this timely reward from Sampath Bank is set to help protect lives while nurturing the habit of saving.
Commenting on this campaign, Tharaka Ranwala, Senior DGM – Operations / Group Chief Marketing Officer, Sampath Bank PLC., noted, “As a responsible national bank, we have always strived to inculcate and nurture healthy personal finance practises, such as savings amongst all Sri Lankans. As part of these efforts, we have been encouraging people to save more through our annual ‘Thrift Month’ campaign. In light of the global pandemic, we sought to offer a reward that helps protect our customer’s health while promoting the habit of saving. We remain committed to empowering all Sri Lankans with even more innovative financial solutions as we continue to present their future.”
