To provide value to their customers, Scotiabank and Magna Rewards have partnered through the “Win 500k the Scotiabank Magna Way” promotion to award one lucky Scotiabank Magna Rewards credit cardholder over 250,000 bonus Magna points, equivalent to $500,000. 

Skeeter Price, Magna Rewards long-time member, was selected as the winner after she used her Scotiabank Magna credit card to purchase essential items over the past three months.  

The promotion encouraged Scotia Magna credit cardholders to swipe their loyalty card at Magna Rewards partners to get extra rewards.

General Manager for Loyalty, Sherika Jackson shared that the promotion was Magna Rewards’ way of giving back to members for their continued support, especially at a time when they need it most.

“Magna Rewards continues to find new and exciting ways to provide our members and partners with more value; this collaboration with Scotiabank is just one way, we thought we could give back to our valued members. We are elated for Ms Price, who will be able to use the extra points for bill payments through PayMaster, grocery purchases at any of our 40 partners, or even for Digicel top-up”.  

Price, who has been a Magna member for over 10 years, shared that since getting Scotiabank Magna MasterCard, she has been taking advantage of the double points she earns when she uses both cards at Magna partner locations. 

“I am so grateful for my Magna. The points have come in very handy, especially during periods when there is a shortfall in my budget. I can always use my points to get my groceries and even gas,” she said. 

Though she was at her job as a Customer Service Manager when she got the call, she could not contain her excitement and screamed in delight as she shared the news with all her co-workers that she had been selected as the winner of $500,000.

“I was a bit sceptical at first, but then I was overcome with excitement when I realised it was a legitimate call. I had never won anything before, and I was so thrilled to be selected as the winner of this enormous prize. As soon as I hung up the phone I was screaming with excitement and told all my staff I had won!” she said.

Price also shared that with her prize money, she plans to make additions to her home and build out her dream kitchen with supplies she will purchase at Hardware and Lumber, a Magna Rewards partner. 

Magna Rewards, which operates the largest loyalty programme in Jamaica and Trinidad, has a Magna Rewards Mastercard credit card issued and co-branded by Scotiabank, where customers earn double points for purchases at Magna merchants across Jamaica.
