Eid Offers Round Up
This post shall summarize Eid Offers coming from the telecom operators on this Meaty Eid. The offers is general are in the shape of awarding free minutes/free balance or cash prizes.
Starting with market leader Mobilink Jazz. They are offering its subscribers a treat of free minutes and cash prizes.
Jazz customers who will use their SIM between Nov 16 and Nov 19 and send SMS on short code 550 will have the chance to become winners:
- 300,000 prizes of 75 Onnet minutes paid in 2 installments (50 minutes & 25 minutes in 1st and 2nd installment respectively)
- 100 customers will be given cash prize of Rs. 100,000 each
The validity of free minutes is announced of 3 days while the Short code 550 will be charged at Rs. 0.50/SMS. The date of the lucky draw for both free minutes and cash prizes will be communicated later (as notified on their webpage).
Ufone’s Eid offer is also an interesting one as it is not only for pre-paid but for post paid also. They are offering Free Calls with out daily charges for 3 whole days on the 4th, 5th and 6th day of Eid (i.e. 20-22 Nov). This applies by consuming Rs.1 of balance from your Ufone the day before Eid and on the first two days of Eid (i.e. 16-18 Nov). Watch out the commercial for this offer which I think suits more to Meethi Eid rather than Meaty Eid.
To activate Eid Offer the short code is *38#. One time subscription charges are Rs.5 + Tax. This offer can be subscribed from one day before Eid till the 2nd Day of Eid.
PTCL’s Vfone also has an Eid Offer giving free balance on loading scratch cards.
