yuMobile is still alive just in case you have questions. The company was last year integrated into Airtel after the buyout of its 2.55 million subscribers.
Airtel has launched an exciting SMS trivia promotion for its yuMobile customers in Kenya dubbed “yuHolidays season II”.
The promo is an entertaining and educative trivia game offering yuMobile subscribers an opportunity to build on their knowledge on tourism, entertainment, history & culture.
The 90-day promotion will have daily and weekly prizes, and a Grand prize of one million shillings. In addition, two lucky subscribers will also have an opportunity to win a trip to Dubai worth Ksh. 150, 000 or the cash equivalent.
To subscribe to the promotion, yuMobile customers will be required to dial *599# and selecting the ‘Play’ option or by sending the key word ‘PLAY’ to SMS short code 59900. There is a one-off subscription charge of Ksh 5 and a daily renewal charge of Ksh2.
Multiple choice questions will be sent back to the customers free of charge. Subscribers will submit their answers by replying to SMS short code 59900 for Ksh 2 per SMS. Alternatively, subscribers may dial 0900650599 and select option to answer a set of 5 questions for Ksh 10 only. For every answer given, the system will respond by informing the subscriber if the answer was right or wrong and also give number of points earned.
Points will be earned in either of the following ways:
- 100 points for a correct answer
- 50 points for a wrong answer
- 500 points for first time registration
- 100 points for subscribing to any yuMobile voice, SMS or Data packs
