‘Tap and Go’ to win big with Scotiabank  

- New SUV offered for customers who ‘tap’ new Scotia MasterCard Debit

Nassau, Bahamas – June 28, 2021 - Scotiabank customers who ‘tap’ their new Scotia MasterCard debit card for purchases by the end of the summer could find themselves driving away a brand new a 2021 Toyota RAV4 sports utility vehicle ( SUV).

The offer comes as the Bank continues to enable and incentivise customers to access greater security and convenience through the new cards that have been distributed to customers in the Bahamas.

“The new ‘chip and pin’ debit card offers increased safety and convenience for our customers,” said Na-amah Barker, Director, Retail Banking — Scotiabank Bahamas. The added security benefit, Barker says, comes through enhanced authentication technology that is utilized for the card verification process. This allows the dynamic storage of data - making it very difficult for fraudsters to compromise the card.

The Bank is also promoting the use of another exciting feature which is slowly gaining popularity locally. The new ‘Tap to Pay’ function allows purchases of up to $50 BSD without handing over the card to a cashier at supporting merchants. Barker notes that this option is a “secure, safe and convenient, especially in light of the ongoing health concerns due to COVID-19.”

Once the card is used at participating merchants during the promotion period, cardholders will be entered into a sweepstakes for the SUV grand prize. All “tapped” transactions, regardless of value, that are made up to August 31, 2021 will be entered for a chance to win the grand prize.

“Entering couldn’t be simpler. Through this promotion, we are educating our customers about all the benefits that come along with the new Scotia MasterCard debit and encouraging them to access the ‘power’ of the new cards as they go about their daily routines,” Barkers shared in closing.

The winner of the SUV will be announced on October 5.
