All Bank Muscat debit and prepaid card holders are eligible to participate in this campaign, which aims to promote digital payment channels in line with Government’s vision of facilitating e-payments for greater security, convenience and ease of use.
The Bank has invited all its customers to pay for their fuel using their Bank Muscat debit and prepaid cards at Shell Service Stations in order to be eligible for the draw. Every month, five hundred lucky winners who use their Bank Muscat debit or prepaid cards will be able to win cashback equivalent to the payment made for that particular transaction, which is chosen in the lucky draw.
