(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) In its continues efforts to increase awareness and promote the habit of savings, Bank Sohar announced the names of three winners of their first Savings Scheme Facebook Competition and handed over a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 to each of them as the winning prize of the best savings tip.

In our first social media competition, we were pleased to receive a large number of entries from fans across the sultanate sharing their valuable experiences of saving tips. We congratulate Hafith al Mashari, Irfan Alam and Asila al Yarabi who submitted the best tips and were adjudged the winners.

We look forward to bringing such innovative contests to our fans and customers in the future, as the Bank Sohar social community continues to go grow.'' Bank Sohar launched its Facebook competition on March 9, and for a period of two weeks it requested fans to share their personal and most effective tips on saving to enter the competition.

The best three savings tips were selected by Bank Sohar to be featured in Bank Sohar's Al Mumayaz Savings Scheme advertising campaign, while each of the winners received a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 for their efforts.
