I am hongkonger.
Sometimes, I recived bank letters used "Our Prestige Customers," instead of "Dear Sir / Madam,". Is it correct? If yes, Is it common in your city?

We don't have the notion of "correct" in this area. It's correct if that's how the bank wants to address you.
I live on the edge of a town in a rural English county, not a city, so I can't answer your second question. I don't ever remember being addressed as a prestige customer though. If I were so addressed, I would guess that the bank was trying to flatter me in order to get me to sign up to some scheme which will make the bank even richer than it already is.

As an English form of address, this is wrong, i.e. is not one of the shared conventions:

1. Nearly all variants include "Dear" or someother such function, e.g. "To" as in "To whom
it may concern."

2. Variants of addressee include Sir, Madam,Gentlemen, etc. but not "Prestige Customers."

I know here in the United States, one variant in general letters to its customers might be "To Our Valued Customers". Sounds similar anyway.

Not unless you're a member of the "Prestige Customer" programme.

In other words, "To Our Prestige Customers," might be acceptable.

For the second question, I just want to know the differenct between Chinese culture and your cutlure. Some Chinese prefer this meaningless "words" to let you feel "enjoy". So, I don't think that the bank was trying to flatter me in order to get me to do something they wanted.

Not if you're e-mailing it to me...by my own choice, I'd be one of your "Lucida Console Customers"..r
