To participate in the campaign, cardholders were required to spend a minimum of RM 50 using their BSN Visa Debit Card.

“The three months campaign not only offered an attractive Grand prize and six Special Prizes, BSN’s Use More, Win More campaign also gave away 300 monthly prizes which included Air Asia vouchers worth RM300, Giant vouchers worth RM200 and Lazada vouchers worth RM100.
