Airtel Malawi limited has announced a new promotion called ‘Surf Your Way to a Samsung Galaxy’ where subscribers are set to win newly released Samsung handsets. The promotion’s grand prize will be a Samsung Galaxy S3.
Airtel Data Manager Frank Magombo told the media that the gadgets they are handing out are the best in the telecommunications world at the moment.
“We don’t believe in giving our customers the second best, so we offer the ultimate prizes,” a boastful Magombo said.
Subscribers that can win these prizes are the ones using at least K300 worth of airtime for internet related activities weekly.
Airtel is running another data related promotion called ‘Yabooka SMS Promotion’ where lucky winners are winning weekly prizes of K100, 000.
The grand prize to be dished out in October will be a whooping K5 million according to Magombo.
“We conduct promotions that impact positively on the people’s lives and it is for that reason that the response from people has always been high,” said Magombo.
