Reiterating the Bank’s commitment to provide more vision, more velocity and more value in everything it does, the savings prize scheme is designed to maximise the number of winners and promote a healthy savings culture in Oman.

Giving a major thrust to savings, the 2020 prize scheme has been revamped to include more draws and more winners, open to a wider audience with branch guaranteed prizes. The series of attractive high value prize draws include Monthly Draws offering OMR 100,000 to be shared equally between two customers from the General segment and two customers from the Wealth Management segment. Half Yearly Draws of OMR 200,000 are equally split between two customers from the General segment and two customers from the Wealth Management segment. The biggest prize of the year will be rewarded at the Year-End grand draws, giving away a total of OMR 400,000 to be shared equally between four customers; two from the General segment and two from the Wealth Management segment.

Keeping alive the tempo, the Bank rewards customers with Weekly Draws of OMR 5,500, Monthly Branch Draws of OMR 31,000, Monthly Salary Transfer Draws of OMR 10,000 and Monthly Youth Draws of OMR 2,000. The bank announces the names of all winners on its official pages on social media platforms and the website

All Sohar I Prize Scheme 2020 accounts are entitled to four chances to win for every minimum average balance maintained in their accounts, while Minor accounts enjoy double the winning chances. Sohar I Prize Scheme 2020 eligibility is open for accounts in Omani Rial as well as savings accounts maintained in AED, GBP, and USD. Those seeking to save without participating in the prize draws can choose an interest-bearing account instead.

By encouraging and rewarding customers for maintaining a prudent saving habit, Sohar International seeks to actively impact the socio-economic development in Oman. By raising the bar on customer-centricity and helping customers win and achieve their goals in an ever-changing world, the Bank constantly pushes boundaries in redefining responsible banking in the country.
