The cost of living just got a whole lot less for Tweed Heads local, Tania Gilfillan, who has won a year’s worth of groceries after taking out Home and Contents insurance through Greater Bank.
Ms Gilfillan, 41, will receive a $200 grocery gift card each week for the next 12 months, which will add up to deliver an overall saving of $10,400 to her annual grocery bill.
The prize was part of a joint promotion between Allianz Insurance and Greater Bank, whereby Greater customers who purchased an Allianz insurance policy through the bank went into the drawer to win 12 month’s worth of groceries or fuel.
As a pensioner, Ms Gilfillan was both shocked and ecstatic to hear the news of her winning.
“I have never won anything of this scale in my life and I am over the moon. This prize is going to have a huge impact on my weekly expenses and will free up a bit of extra cash for me to spend on travel,” said Ms Gilfillan.
“At home it’s only me and my ‘roommate’, Sasha, a 14-year-old Keeshond pup, so as you can imagine we’ll be eating like kings from now on! I’m sure we’ll also have a lot more people popping over for meals as word spreads.”
Mike Watts, Greater Bank’s Tweed Heads Branch Manager, is thrilled to see one of the bank’s long standing customers walk away with such a valuable prize.
“Thousands of people were in the draw for this amazing giveaway and we are glad to see it go to someone who has been banking with us for over 14 years and is so deserving,” said Mike.
“At Greater Bank we are committed to supporting the community that supports us, so we’re glad to hear that the savings Ms Gilfillan will make from not having to buy groceries for a year will be put towards something she is so passionate about.”
Allianz is the fourth largest general insurer in Australia with over 3 million policyholders and is a trusted partner of Greater Bank’s because of their outstanding service as well as the range and value of cover options they offer.
