Xpress Money’s hugely popular promotion, “Pera Pang Xkwela,” ended amidst great fan fare recently. It was a joint promotion with agent partner M.Lhuillier Inc. The lucky winners of the promotion were announced resulting in some extremely happy and ecstatic Xpress Money customers.
Ms. Catalma one of the winners of the grand prize of 50,000 PHP was thrilled. When she heard that she won the prize she called her mother in Hong Kong to celebrate. She feels that now she has the chance to save for her future. Ever since she lost her job things have been difficult and her prize money will definitely help ease the way.
The Pera Pang Xkwela promotion ran on an electronic lucky draw system where only receivers of Xpress Money transactions need to register via sms to enter the draw. There were 44 winners of the 5,000 PHP and 8 winners of the grand prize of 50,000 PHP. The promotion was held from May through August with a draw held every week.
Ms. Lily Julian won the week 11 draw on a remittance she received from her eldest son who supports her and her husband, a fisherman, along with his 4 younger siblings. She was so grateful because with this money she could afford to send her younger children back to school for the next year.
