Vodacom unveils its summer promotion
Customers set to score double value
JOHANNESBURG, 01 NOVEMBER 2012 - Vodacom has taken the lid off its summer promotion which will provide double value to customers who purchase a variety of products and services including talk time, data, SMS, MMS, Vodacom Millionaires and selected content services. The ‘Double your Summer' promotion, which is available to Top Up, Contract and Prepaid customers, will run from 01 November to 14 December 2012.
"Our summer promotion is bigger, better and gives even more value to our customers. Now they can double the fun on content services and double their conversations - what a great way to stay connected this summer," says Enzo Scarcella, Vodacom's Managing Executive: Brand Marketing & Communications.
Vodacom has also doubled the grand weekly prize on Vodacom Millionaires to R2 million; and every month, two lucky customers will stand a chance of winning a Toyota Yaris and R50 000 in cash.
Contract customers who purchase SMS, MMS, Data or My Minute month-to-month bundles get double the value of their purchase. All existing and new month-to-month contract customers will automatically receive the promotional benefit by default; no activation is required.
Prepaid and Top Up customers who recharge with R29 or more will receive an equivalent number of voice minutes at no extra charge. The free minutes will only be valid on the Vodacom network and will expire at midnight following the day of recharge.

Vodacom notice - Phishing
Vodacom has recently been made aware of some customers receiving fraudulent emails claiming to be from Vodacom and asking for updated contact information. The mails may even look authentic and contain the Vodacom logo and corporate colours.
Note: Vodacom won't ever ask for personal information over email.
These are scams commonly known as 'phishing' and all Vodacom customers should take note of the following before responding to an email from a site asking for personal information.
- Check that the email address and the sender name match.
- Hover over (but do not click) any links to check if the address matches the link that was typed in the message.
- Make sure that the email address or phone number listed in the email is the same as the one that should be on that company's records.
- Does the message start with a generic greeting, like "Dear customer." Most legitimate companies will include the recipient's name in their messages
If you suspect a phishing mail, contact our customer care by dialing 111 from your Vodacom handset. Alternatively, send us an email by completing the Scams & Hoax form.
