Etisalat Nigeria has rewarded lucky winners of its 9ja Free Credit Promo.
The prize presentation at its Ikeja Experience Centre saw numerous Etisalat customers go home with different mobile devices from dual-SIM phones, Blackberry phones, Etisalat Gaga Smartphones and tablets. Over 3,740 winners have emerged since the commencement of the promo on July 5, with prizes being presented to winners at various Etisalat offices around the country.
Speaking at the event, Head, Mass Market Segment, Etisalat Nigeria, Idowu Adesokan, said the promo was just one of the ways Etisalat is saying ‘thank you’ to its loyal subscribers, and restated the brand’s commitment to enriching the lives of its ever-growing subscriber base. “Because the consumer is at the heart of everything we do, we are always looking for innovative ways to reward customer loyalty and put smiles on their faces,” he said.
One of the winners, Desmond Igbinedion, expressed joy at the gesture. He recounted that at first, he was skeptical about the authenticity of the win when he got an SMS informing him that he had won an Etisalat tablet. “I couldn’t believe it when I was told that I had won a device from Etisalat. I have never believed in promos, and even as I hold my phone, I still haven’t woken up from the shock,” he said.
For Diala Kelechi, a businessman, the prize couldn’t have come at a better time, as he had actually been planning to buy a new phone when he received a text message stating that he had won a phone from Etisalat. “It came as a pleasant surprise and I’m so happy to be part of the winners today,” he said.
Explaining the mechanics of the revamped 9ja Free Credit Promo, Specialist, Consumer Segment Marketing at Etisalat Nigeria, Ugonma Akhibge, said that customers who recharge within five minutes of every hour, every day in the months of July and August will qualify for the draw to win Dual SIM phones, Blackberry Curve 4, Etisalat Gaga smartphones, Acer, Samsung GIO and Etisalat tablet, every five minutes, 24 hours a day. In total, she said, Etisalat would give out 288 phones every day.
“The promo is open to registered new and existing prepaid customers. Draws would be done for every recharge within five minutes of every hour, and the more the customer recharges the higher his or her chances of winning. However, a customer can only win once during the promo,” she concluded.
