To participate and win in the promo, Airtel customers simply need to recharge their lines, buy any voice or data bundle or take the deal of the day by dialling *340# to enter into the daily draw. The promo is point based and customers earn points based on the value of recharge or bundle they buy.
According to Airtel, multiple recharges earn customers more points, which in turn increase their chances of being selected in the daily draws. Customers who take the deal of the day by dialling *340# also earn additional points, which increase their chances of winning. Points represent the number of entries a subscriber has in the promo and the more points a customer has accumulated, the higher the chances of winning.
Participants accumulate and keep points they earn all through the duration of the promo. Customers’ numbers will, however, be in the draw only on the days they recharge, buy a bundle or take the deal of the day. Customers can check the number of points they have accumulated in the promo by sending ‘POINTS’ as SMS to the short code, 340. This SMS is zero-rated, completely without charge. The promo will run till February 3rd 2016.
