Scotiabank Thrills Teacher with Trip to FIFA World Cup

Gordon Kerr, a teacher at Cornwall College and a customer at Scotiabank Sam Sharp branch, got the surprise of his life just a day after Teacher’s Day, when he received an all-expense paid trip to the FIFA World cup games in Brazil this summer.  Kerr, the second customer to receive this prize, is the runner-up in the Scotiabank “FIFA Soccer World Cup 2014” Visa Credit and Visa Debit Card Promotion. 

Kerr recalls responding to a page to gather for a special presentation not knowing that the gathering was staged for him by the Scotiabank Montego Bay branch staff with the help of his Cornwall colleagues. He was overwhelmed by the announcement as he was greeted by branch manager Stredic Thompson and other members of the Scotiabank team as well as specially invited guests Bruce Gaynor, Second Vice President, Jamaica Football Federation and Warren Barrett, Goalkeeper Coach, Jamaica Senior World Cup Team who all shared in the moment.    The rest, he said, has been a whirlwind. 

Kerr  is the lucky winner of a 4 day, 3 night trip for two (2) to watch match  #42 of the FIFA Soccer World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on June 25, 2014.  This includes: two (2) category tickets to the FIFA World Cup match and airline tickets from Montego Bay to Rio de Janeiro  (return). As a part of the Scotiabank experience he will also receive a pre-paid Visa Card with spending money, meet and greet airport transportation, security, ground transportation for scheduled events and tours of the city.

Thrilled and really excited is how he describes his feelings. “It’s going to be an experience, another stop on the map.” According to Kerr, “there is nothing better out there for me than Scotia, you all should bank there.”

The Promotion showcased the value and benefit of using Visa Debit ScotiaCard and Scotiabank Visa Credit Cards as primary methods of payment. Cardholders earned a ballot for every J$6,500 they swiped between February 1 and March 26, 2014. A Visa Debit ScotiaCard is issued with all new Scotiabank savings accounts.
