From utility bakkies, laptops, smartphones, tablets and cash to, grocery vouchers, clothing vouchers which can be used to purchase school uniforms too, , airtime and data bundles.

  • R5 000 Laptop vouchers;

“Traditionally, summer is the high point in South Africa’s calendar, with the promise of endless sun, fun, high energy and the chance to connect with friends and loved ones,” says Simo Mkhize, Cell C’s Chief Commercial Officer. “But this year has been uniquely difficult with many having to stay home, observe social distancing and cut down on travelling over long distances, not to mention the economic stresses.”

“This is why Cell C wants to help our customers change their summer and their world by connecting with loved ones and friends, so we’re allowing you to escape into a world of possibilities with our 2020 Summer Campaign, and at the same time helping customers celebrate summer with great prizes” he says.

“This year our customers can win 1 of 20 bakkies that are awarded weekly as the Summer Campaign’s grand prizes”, he continues, “and with this kind of prize who knows what entrepreneurial dreams they can fulfil. This can be a chance for someone to start something new, and truly change their world.”

To enter customers will need to either sign up for a new contract, recharge, or upgrade an existing contract. Existing Prepaid, Postpaid and TopUp customers can also buy any number of qualifying bundles, which are available for purchase through USSD (*147#), Cell C’s online portal, the Cell C app and Bank ATM’s.

This year, Cell C has also introduced a new ‘Spin & Win’ game will allow customers to play and stand a chance to win any of the aforementioned prizes. Each time a qualifying purchase is made, a customer will be allocated spins, with which they stand a chance to unlock prizes in the game. By taking part they stand a chance to be entered into the grand prize draw to win one of the 20 bakkies up for grabs.

Everyone who participates in the Summer Campaign through purchasing an all-in-one-bundle will be awarded free data for Facebook – ultimately everyone who buys this bundle is an automatic winner. Those customers will earn double the spins on the Spin & Win campaign game.

The competition is open to active Prepaid, Postpaid and TopUp Cell C customers who purchase qualifying bundles.
