Consumer promo: MoneyGram encourages money transfer with reward system


Global money transfer firm, MoneyGram International, has rounded off this year’s edition of its ‘Share-the-Passion & Win-Big’ Consumer Promo with a public draw where seventy customers of its agent banks in the country emerged winners. The promo ran from January 19 to February 28 and offered MoneyGram customers who received money through any of the agent banks during the promo period a chance to enter for draws and win prizes ranging from smart phones to plasma TVs.

Out of the seventy winners that emerged at the draw which used a technology- driven process that treated a pool of 135,000 transaction entries from MoneyGram’s twelve agent banks in the country, twenty won plasma TVs while fifty others won Samsung Galaxy smart phones

The event which held in Lagos last week was witnessed by MoneyGram officials, representatives of agent banks, officials of the Consumer Protection Council (CPC) and the Advertising Practitioners Council (APCON), journalists and some invited guests.

In a brief remark, MoneyGram’s Regional Director, North and West Africa, Francois Peyret, described the Nigerian market as a key receiver corridor in Africa just as he congratulated the country for winning the recently concluded 2013 AFCON tournament, thereby re-stating her generally acknowledged position as giant of Africa.

He said MoneyGram would continue to create programmes and events aimed at delighting, empowering and promoting Nigerians’ dream of self realization, adding that a cardinal business principle of MoneyGram is to continue to align with every event and opportunity that promises to promote the passion, wellbeing and happiness of its host communities. “MoneyGram will continue to bring closer to members of our host communities opportunities to help them realize their dreams and derive joy from their passions. In our marketing, business development, Corporate Social Responsibility, in fact the entire gamut of our engagements with our host communities, we are passionate about bringing them closer to their dreams”.

With a network of over 270,000 local agents across 194 countries and territories, MoneyGram remains the world’s fastest growing global fund transfer of choice. It has continued to receive commendation for promoting convenience, flexibility, reliability and responsibility as pivots of its operations.
