Long-time BCI customer Linda Turoa will soon be jetting off to Australia for the first time after winning the "Win a trip to Sydney" campaign as part of the local banks launch and promotion of the BCI Vaka Debit MasterCard.

 A happy Linda is pictured here with BCI managing director Vaine Nooana-Arioka and BCI marketing and customer services manager Ron Patia.

Linda was drawn as the local banks ‘Sydney Experience’ winner and will receive and all expense paid adventure to Sydney, Australia for two valued at $5000. 
As part of the local banks Vaka Debit MasterCard launch and promotion, BCI ran a competition for Vaka Debit MasterCard customers where the simple action of swiping and using their Vaka Debit MasterCard would automatically put them in the draw for the awesome prize of an all expenses paid trip to Sydney.
The prize includes return economy air tickets for two to Sydney and staying at a minimum four star accommodation.
Linda also receives $2000 credit into her Vaka Debit MasterCard account to shop up a storm in Sydney as well as a $200 MasterCard ‘priceless’ experience 
Bank of the Cook Islands managing director Vaine Nooana-Arioka was thrilled to present Linda with her $5000 Sydney Experience prize – a joint effort between the Bank of the Cook Islands and MasterCard. 
“We would like to thank Linda for being a valued BCI customer and she is deserving of this get away and I’m sure she will really enjoy it!” 
For Linda the win came as a shock as she initially thought the local bank was calling to inform her of an error on her card.
“I was pretty shocked because I didn’t know about the competition,” says Linda.
Linda says she owes her win to her partner Aue Vakatini who used her card and automatically entered her into the draw to win the trip.
The 25-year old long time BCI customer says she is very excited ahead of her first ever trip to Australia and promises the people’s bank that they will be seeing more of her as she takes her BCI Vaka Debit MasterCard and her partner on an adventure of a lifetime to Sydney! --Mana Media
