Al Watani Savings Scheme aims to reward the Bank’s esteemed customers for their loyalty and encourage the habit of savings within the community. With such high goals, the Scheme prizes were well-received among customers who look forward to these winning chances as they represent their dreams and aspirations. That is not all, the customer’s dreams get renewed with the revamping of the programme each season and they are now anticipating the re-launch of Al Watani Savings Scheme for 2017.

The savings account needs to have only a minimum average monthly deposit of BD 50 to qualify for the monthly prizes. In addition to the savings programme, the account itself offers a wide variety of benefits to customers including internationally accepted debit card, the convenience of Internet banking from anywhere in the globe, the ease of making electronic payments as well as transfers and a whole host of other such benefits.

Mr. Abdul Aziz Al Ahmed also conveyed the congratulations of NBB’s CEO, Mr. Jean Christophe Durand to the winners and extended his thanks to all the Bank’s customers for their tremendous support and patronage. He also wished the other customers who did not get the chance to win, more luck in next year’s Scheme.
