Standard Chartered Bank is once again running its Mid-Year Spend & Win Campaign this year, giving its credit cardholders an opportunity to win daily cashback prizes of up to RM100 by spending a minimum of RM100 in a single retail transaction. Running between 1 July to 31 July 2021, you can also be in the running to win a grand prize of RM100,000.
Open to all credit cardholders except for those with corporate cards, the campaign mechanics are as follow:
Standard Chartered credit cardholders who spend a minimum of RM100 in one retail transaction will have a chance to participate in a Play & Win game, after which they may earn cashback of either RM5 or RM100. A link for the game will be sent for every eligible transaction that is made, which means that you can earn multiple chances to play in a day if you carry out multiple qualifying payments. That said, each eligible cardholder is only entitled to a maximum of two daily cashback prizes per day.
Do also note that only retail payments are accepted for this promotion. It does not include payments for petrol purchases, utilities, insurance, telecommunication, and government services – among others.
As for the quantity of daily cashback prizes that are available, the RM5 cashback prize is capped at a total of 84,750 throughout the entire campaign period. Meanwhile, the RM100 cashback prize is limited to 62 slots.
As always, these prizes will be provided on a first-come first-served basis. If you do win, the cashback will be credited to your account within 60 working days from the end of each calendar month of the campaign period.
Aside from the daily cashback prizes, Standard Chartered’s Mid-Year Spend & Win Campaign also features a single grand prize of RM100,000 to be won by eligible credit cardholders. To stand a chance at winning this cash prize, you’ll first need to earn entries by carrying out the following transactions on your credit card:
|Every RM100 retail spend (local and overseas)||5x|
|Every RM100 spent on Fave, Grab, Shopee, Lazada, Taobao, or Zalora||10x|
|First spend on newly approved credit card during campaign period||100x|
|Each approved application during the campaign period: |
– Balance Transfer Plus
– Flexi-on-Balance Plus
– FlexiPay Plus
– Cheque-on-Call Plus
The bank further clarified that unlike for the daily cashback prizes promo – which accepts only specific payments as qualifying transactions – all transactions will earn you entries to be in the running to win the grand prize.
At the end of the campaign, Standard Chartered will then shortlist and draw a grand prize winner from the pool of eligible credit cardholders. The winner will be informed within 90 days from the end of the campaign period, after which the grand prize will be credited into his or her account within 120 days from the end of the campaign period.
If you wish to join in on the bank’s Mid-Year Spend & Win Campaign 2021, you’ll need to register your participation by sending an SMS (“WIN”) to 66399 or by responding to the bank’s SMS invitation to you. Once successfully received by the bank, your registration will be valid for all the Standard Chartered cards that you hold.
Note as well that the bank will take up to three working days to record your registration in its system. This may affect some of the mechanics for the campaign; for instance, if you carry out eligible transactions for the daily cashback prizes on the day that you register for the campaign, the bank may only send you the link to its Play & Win game after three working days instead of within the day.
