Kenya’s major telecom Safaricom, last week launched its new Christmas promotion campaigns. It’s set to see Kenyans enjoy a plethora of gifts and offers. Dubbed Pokea Uteo Wa Furaha, the promotion runs for a month all through to January 15, 2022.
For the past few days, customers have been receiving offers in various Safaricom’s carrier services including M-PESA, voice and data.
A Safaricom Christmas
Safaricom is currently giving up to 20% discount when you use the M-PESA Mini apps for various transactions. This includes buying event tickets, paying for travel like local flights, SGR tickets and bus gift vouchers.
According to the telco, the first 100 customers who pay for a local flight between 6th and 8th December through the Flights Mini App will get their tickets for just KES 1000. This is quite exciting considering how expensive those tickets can be even as we get to the holiday season.
Bonga, Voice and Data Bundle Offers
Customers are also able to enjoy custom deals courtesy of the Tunukiwa@21 promotion, This includes 21 voice minutes and 21 SMS for KES 20.
Additionally, the telco’s new ‘Bonga for Christmas’ campaign will see customers access their Bonga Points to pay for essential goods and services. This is possible through the huge network of Lipa Na M-PESA merchants across the country.
The Christmas promotion also involves surprise visits from the telco across various counties with goodies guaranteed for the lucky residents. This includes stuff like free airtime, bus/fuel vouchers, food hampers, donation of care packs in hospitals, visits to children’s homes and lunch drives targeting street families.
