Through the campaign, current and potential customers stand a chance to win the grand prize of a fully paid trip valued at over Kshs.  400,000 for each winner and their companion to watch the Olympics Games.

Eva- Ngigi Sarwari, Country Manager, Visa Kenya said that being  the worldwide payment technology partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games,  the company   is  thrilled to provide Kenyan NCBA Visa cardholders a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the Olympics Games.  “  This collaboration with NCBA underscores our commitment to creating unique experiences for customers, while showcasing our shared values of inclusivity, innovation, and the spirit of sportsmanship,” she said.

To stand a chance of  winning, customers with NCBA Visa cards have to use them  to make a payment of at least Kshs. 3,000 or equivalent in foreign currency at the point of sale or online, both locally and internationally. Each transaction of at least Kshs. 3,000 or equivalent will earn the participating cardholder one entry to the draw.
