This benefit was unveiled by the Bank for children confined to their homes by months of lockdown.
Children with Commercial Bank ‘Arunalu’ Children’s Savings Accounts, ‘Isuru’ Minors’ Savings Plans, and ‘Dotcom’ Teen Accounts are entitled to these special discounts, providing them with an opportunity to save while catching up on their reading and creative pursuits.
These account holders can enjoy a 20% discount on Sarasavi publications and Weerodara stationery and a 10% discount on all other publications and stationery available at Sarasavi bookshops during the promotion period. The discounts will not apply when purchasing calculators, educational publications, and other services from Sarasavi, the Bank said.
Holders of these Commercial Bank accounts are required to produce an Arunalu or Isuru branded passbook, an Isuru Entitlement Certificate, or a Dotcom Teen Debit Card at the counters of any Sarasavi Bookshop at the point of payment to avail of the discounts.
The flagship children’s savings account of Commercial Bank, Arunalu offers a higher interest rate for Children’s Savings Accounts and rewards account holders with special cash prizes if they score the first, second or third highest aggregate marks in their schools at the Year 5 Scholarship Examination.
