Everybody loves a great chance to win! So FNB took their chance with this and put together a competition for their customers in order to promote vaccination.

At the end of October, First National Bank will give one vaccinated customer at least R3-million, and possibly as much as R6-million. The bank says it wants to encourage customers to be vaccinated both for their own good, and for the good of the economy. 

FNB said that the winnings will be broken down as follows:

  • Customers could win R3 million for just being a vaccinated FNB customer,
  • A further R2 million will be award if a customer is vaccinated and has insurance with FNB Life
  • An additional R1 million will be awarded if they are a vaccinated senior, 60 years and above.

If you are an FNB customer and still in doubt about getting your jab, the time is now.
