During its 18th year of partnership with DSF as a key sponsor, Visa is encouraging card holders to guess a secret grand prize that will be concealed within a giant box at The Dubai Mall.
Visa will be placing its Big Box promotional campaign at strategic points across Dubai, and the focal point of the campaign will be a giant Big Box displayed at The Dubai Mall. Every transaction with any Visa card will entitle consumers to enter into the main prize draw for the grand prize within the Big Box, which will remain a secret till the end of DSF 2013.
To keep the campaign engaging, Visa will also host a number of exciting activities around the Big Box at The Dubai Mall every day during DSF, offering chances to win many instant prizes daily.
The company has seen record breaking transaction numbers in the recent years during DSF and is anticipating that their new promotional campaign will make 2013 another record year. The Big Box is hoped to enhance both cross-border spending from international visitors as well as enhancing its domestic spend on its cards using the Visa-DSF partnership.
The promotion will include a Twitter competition where card holders will be required to guess the contents within the Big Box and tweet it along with the specific campaign number assigned to the day.
They will also be able to photograph and upload images of all the Visa Boxes around Dubai through Instagram and send it across along with the campaign number for the day to win a daily prize.
