As part of ‘Mega Masappe’, subscribers are required to opt into the promo by dialing *162# and selecting option 1 to opt in, option 2 to check target and option 3 to redeem their data bonus – which will be broken down into Voice, SMS and Data at 50%, 10% and 40% respectively. This bonus however does not apply to social packs, quarterly, annual and free bundles.
Mega Masappe promotion subscriber bonus will be given instantly on the achievement of the daily target. For example, if a subscriber’s bonus target is Ushs. 1,000 and they recharge with that Ushs. 1,000, they will receive 100% bonus of the same value under the Voice, SMS & Data split. However, if they recharge with another Ushs. 1,000 on the same day, they will not get a 2nd bonus.
Daily and weekly prizes will be given away every Friday for the duration of the promo.
