Dubai, January 27, 2016: Remitting back home every month is a usual affair for most of the expatriates but winning dollars for remitting was unheard till now. ‘Send Dirhams – Win Dollars’ was one such campaign that enabled the customers to win dollars while remitting dirhams home.

To be eligible, the customer had to remit twice during the promotion period at any of the UAE Exchange branches in the UAE.
The brand announced the winners of its ‘Send Dirhams – Win Dollars’ campaign through two electronic draws. The draws, conducted at the UAE Exchange offices in Dubai and Sharjah on January 18, 2016 and January 21, 2016 respectively, were supervised by the Inspectors of respective Economic Development departments. Sala Uddin Mohammad Ishaque from Bangladesh won the mega prize of US$100,000. The grand prize of US$10,000 was conferred to five winners while fifty lucky winners won US$1000.
