MTN Uganda has today launched a third edition of the MoMo Nyabo looking at giving back to its customers who are using MTN mobile money to pay for their utilities, shopping, buy data or airtime, among others. Previously MoMo Nyabo promos had been limited for instance, for the first promo rewarded customers using MTN Mobile Money to load airtime and buy voice or data bundles while in the second promo rewarded customers for sending money.
The promo is running under the theme “MoMoNyabo Together”, with focus to help MTN customers with the much-needed support following the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the well-being of many Ugandans. The telco will be giving most urgent needs such as domestic welfare, rebuilding small businesses unlike previous editions where cars, motorbikes, and other prizes were given away.
The telco has also set aside UGX1.2 billion that will be given away in mobile money prizes to lucky customers and MTN MoMo Agents and/or merchants. Every week day, two customers participating in the promo will randomly be chosen and each given UGX1 million with a chance to triple that amount and also win an additional UGX2 million for friends and family through an exciting game show.
The exciting game show is a new twist in the promo compared to the previous editions. Those participating in the game show will be asked 5 general knowledge questions each with a multiple choice of answers. Each question is worth UGX800,000 which will be equally split between the winner and their preferred beneficiary. The winner has the option to choose one beneficiary for all the answers they get right or nominate several beneficiaries for each question answered correctly. The beneficiary can be individuals, families, organizations/causes who are active MTN customers.
The promo comes at the time the telco had just launched a campaign under the theme, “Keep some Money on MTN MoMo, It saves” aimed at sensitizing its customers on why it’s important to keep some money on their MTN MoMo wallet and associated benefits of using mobile money.
“MTN MoMo not only saves our customers the inconveniences of having to leave their comfort to get airtime, bundles or other services, it also gives them the chance to win much needed money though this promotion”, Mr. Somdev Sen, Chief Marketing Officer at MTN Uganda said during the launch of the MoMo Nyabo third edition.
All customers will be required to do is dial *165# or use the MyMTN app to pay for airtime or bundles as well as pay for utilities. The winners will be chosen in draws to be broadcast on NBS and Bukedde TV every day at 8:20PM (EAT).
