The cost of living just got a whole lot easier for Casino pensioner, Allan Martin, who won $10,000 worth of groceries after taking out Home and Contents insurance through Greater Bank.
Mr Martin will receive a $1,000 grocery gift card every month for the next 10 months, which will deliver huge savings to his annual grocery bill.
Part of a joint promotion between Greater Bank and Allianz Insurance, every Greater Bank customer who purchased an eligible insurance policy through the bank during July went into the draw to win the major prize.
As a pensioner, Mr Martin said the win couldn’t have come at a better time and was shocked and overwhelmed by the news.
“I still can’t believe my luck at winning this incredible prize and am still pinching myself. This win is truly life changing. I plan on sharing the grocery vouchers with my son so we can both benefit from the win,” he explained.
“I am about to undergo major foot surgery so this win will allow me save a bit more and put some money away for a rainy day.
“After chatting to the staff at the Casino branch of Greater Bank, I compared my previous insurance with what Greater Bank had to offer with Allianz insurance and decided to go through them with Greater Bank’s Allianz insurance because of its lower monthly premium and great coverage.”
Vi Janissen, Greater Bank’s Casino Branch Manager, is thrilled to see such a deserving community member and long-time customer walk away with such a valuable prize.
“Over 1,600 people went into the draw for this amazing giveaway and we are glad to see it go to a local pensioner who has been a wonderful customer with us for more than eights years,” Mrs Janissen said.
“At Greater Bank we’re all about supporting the community that supports us, and we are so excited to see such a significant prize go to one of our loyal customers who we know will really benefit from it.”
Greater Bank has been servicing customers in the NSW Northern Rivers region since the 1970s and now has branches in Casino, Ballina, Grafton and Tweed Heads.
