Telecel launches Transact & Win promo for its telecash service




Zimbabwe’s Telecel has a promo for all the Telecash users going on. The promo is dubbed ‘Transact & Win’. The subscribers stand a chance to win cash, handsets, modems with airtime, DStv decoders and DStv subscriptions.

Twenty lucky subscribers will receive $500 cash each, while two subscribers will each get a DStv decoder.The other prizes will include three months DStv subscriptions for two lucky winners, smart phones, modemsloaded with airtime and severalother cash prizes.

The promo started on the 1st of august and is set to run until the 29th of October, and to qualify one has to be a registered telecash user who must have made a transaction of a minimum of $10for any transaction.

Any Telecel subscriber can register for telecash by visiting their nearest Telecel shop or registered agent with their ID after which they just need to dial *888# to activate the telecash account.

According to Obert Mandimika, Telecel’s Communications and Branding Director, the promotion is aimed at rewarding customers who have been actively using telecash services while at the same time encouraging unregistered and inactive customers to try out the mobile money service, which has shaken the local market due to its user-friendly functionality.

“We believe the Transact & Win promotion will help encourage our subscribers to use our telecash services which are very affordable and convenient. The recent launch of the telecash Gold Card on the ZimSwitch platform adds even more convenience to telecash and we would like to use this promotion to encourage even more people to experience our affordable mobile money services” said Mandimika.

Earlier this year Telecel announced the launch of telecash, their mobile money service, and was the first mobile operatorin Zimbabwe to introduce a debit card which telecash users can use to swipe on anyZimSwitch cashpoints and ATMs to access funds in their telecash wallet.
