Grand Prize Winner Wins Trip for Two to Rio 2016 Olympic Games Closing Ceremony
Kuala Lumpur, 27 June 2016 – After years of watching the Olympics Games on television, civil engineer Wan Chee Wai, 32, received a chance of a lifetime to watch the closing ceremony live in Rio this August.

The Perakian, currently based in Kajang, was ecstatic when he received the grand prize of a trip for two to see the Rio 2016 Olympics Games closing ceremony at the prize-giving ceremony for the Visa Rio 2016 Olympic Games Spend & Win Campaign by Visa, Maybank and PETRONAS.

“This is unexpected. I am excited to be going to see the Rio 2016 Olympics Games' closing ceremony and I hope that Malaysia will win its first gold medal,” said Wan, adding that if given a chance he would love to see the badminton, football and athletics matches. His cousin will join him on the trip.

Wan, a long-time PETRONAS customer, said that he frequently swipes his credit card for fuel ever since he signed up for a PETRONAS Maybank Visa card in 2009. He also signed up for a Kad Mesra to maximise his spending by accumulating points that can be redeemed for fuel and items from Kedai Mesra.

“I congratulate Mr Wan on winning the grand prize. Our PETRONAS Primax is a winning fuel made for winners just like you and we urge Mr Wan, and the other winners from this campaign, to continue fuelling up with PETRONAS for more rewards and benefits. We are constantly working with our partners to introduce more exciting campaigns throughout the year to thank you for your patronage. I also urge out other customers to continue patronising out stations to not miss out on future campaigns,” said Mohd Ibrahimnuddin Mohd Yunus, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB).

The event was held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.

"On behalf of everyone at Visa, we would like to congratulate Mr Wan for being the grand prize winner in this once in a lifetime opportunity and watch the closing ceremony of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Visa is a Top Olympic Games sponsor and because of that, we were able to create this campaign with PETRONAS and Maybank to benefit our cardholders. We will continue to work closely with our bank issuers and merchant partners to create rewarding campaigns and activities for our cardholders when they make cashless transactions," said Ng Kong Boon, Visa Country Manager for Malaysia.

“We are confident that our winner Mr Wan will have an unforgettable experience at the Rio Olympic Games. This contest is part of our ongoing efforts to reward customers through our comprehensive range of products and services,” said Victor Kaw, Head of Cards Malaysia.

“Our PETRONAS Maybank Visa and PETRONAS Ikhwan Visa < cards are tailor made with special benefits for use in Petronas outlets and not only offers discounts, but also bonus Treatpoints which can then be redeemed for a wide variety of items and vouchers.”

The Rio 2016 Olympic Games Spend & Win contest ran from 1 April until 1 June 2016.  All Visa cardholders, including PETRONAS Maybank Visa cardholders, in Malaysia were entitled to participate in the campaign by spending a minimum of RM50 on their Visa cards at the more than 1,000 PETRONAS Stations and 760 Kedai Mesra nationwide.

In addition to the grand prize, the campaign also offered weekly prizes consisting of 80 Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge mobile phones and 120 PETRONAS Mesra points worth RM200 each.
Currently, PETRONAS is running the Awesome Bola campaign from now until 11 July 2016. To participate, make cumulative spends of RM40 worth of fuel or Kedai Mesra items at any PETRONAS Station nationwide throughout the campaign period and swipe your Kad Mesra for a chance to win more than 1,300 prizes daily.
