“I keep coming back to the banks after Tet, partly thanks to their attractive offers and gifts,” said Hoang Anh, a customer from Hai Ba Trung district.

At Nam A Bank, in the first three days after Ter from February 17-19, first customers coming to the bank would receive a lucky money worth VND100,000 (US$4.31).

From February 12-21, customers who complete financial transactions worth at least VND200,000 (US$8.62) via online banking methods such as Open Banking, Mobile Banking, could also receive the lucky money.

In celebration of a new Lunar Year, the Vietnam Maritime Commercial Bank (MSB) offered more than 20,000 gifts to customers opening new bank account or carrying out transactions from now on until March 28.

Once completing transactions worth from VND100,000 (US$4.31) via e-banking, customers would have an opportunity to receive random words that form into meaningful wish in Tet and win lucky money up to VND100,000 (US$4.31).

Lucky money is also offered at Vietcombank, BIDV in the first week after Tet, while Sacombank offers customers a chance of winning prizes worth up to VND6 billion (US$258,583), including a Toyota Fortuner model 2021 of VND1.3 billion (US$56,000) and other prizes.

A bank employee said in the first working day after a long holiday, customers often have high demand to open or withdraw money from saving accounts.

“The number of customers, however, was less than last years,” he said, adding in addition to the Covid-19 impacts, the fact that customers are entitled for bonus when doing online transactions is also a main reason for the fewer number of clients going to bank branches.
