EcoCash is rewarding its customers with a 10% airtime bonus whenever they purchase Econet airtime worth US$5 or more, using the EcoCash US$ wallet in its popular Transact-and-Win promotion.
EcoCash said the campaign is aimed at promoting the convenience of using EcoCash, the mobile money platform, and is designed to reward customers for their usage and their loyalty.
“At EcoCash, we care about customer convenience and are always looking for ways to leverage digital technology to simplify our customers’ lives and to reward them for their continued support and loyalty,” said EcoCash Holdings Zimbabwe Limited chief commercial officer Gilbert Tsongorera.
“We are excited to be offering an instant 10% airtime bonus to our customers who purchase airtime worth US$5 or more.
“And all they need to do to enjoy the guaranteed free minutes is to simply purchase US$5 airtime (or more) using their EcoCash US$ wallet,” said Tsongorera.
He added that customers can access the EcoCash USD wallet, which is already on every EcoCash customer’s phone; they do not need to do anything to create it, is by simply dialling *151# or *153#.
The free airtime bonus reward is part of EcoCash’s US$200 000 promotion, where millions of its customers stand a chance to win by simply transacting using the EcoCash US$ Wallet.
The promotion, which is running between March 1 and April 15, 2023, comes at a time when the EcoCash US dollar wallet is gaining popularity with individual customers, business enterprises and merchants alike, because of its convenience and security.
