Telekom Networks Malawi (TNM) and First Merchant Bank (FMB) have launched a joint promotion called Recharge and Win Big to encourage TNM subscribers to recharge their phones through the bank.
TNM National Channel Manger, Chikhulupiliro Mphatso FMB Product Manager, Gavin Moyo, said at the launch that the main aim of launching the promotion is to reward customers by giving them a chance of winning smart phones weekly if they top up their TNM phones using FMB Mobile.
According to FMB head of marketing Sylvia Mataka three customers will win Blackberry 9360 each every week, while three others will win Huawei Ascend Y200.
To enter the promotion which runs for two months till June 30 2013, subscribers are supposed to recharge their phones with K200 ($0.50) or more of TNM airtime using FMB Mobile.
Apart from qualifying for the competition, every customer who recharges using FMB Mobile will automatically get 10 percent extra airtime on their recharge amount.
“Your name has to be entered into a draw every time you recharge so you will have multiple entries,” Moyo said at the launch.
The competition is open to only TNM subscribers who are also FMB customers.
“If one is not yet an FMB customer, they can open an account and get an ATM card right away which they can use to register for FMB mobile. And this is all for free,” said Moyo.
The promotion will run for eight weeks and there will be a grand draw in June this year.
