Vodacom announces the return of Power Hour

Thursday, 10 January 2013

JOHANNESBURG, 10 January 2013 - Vodacom has brought back Power Hour which has proven to be a very popular promotion for prepaid subscribers. The new promotion will offer customers one hour of talk time for only R10 from 10 January to 28 February 2013.

Prepaid customers who purchase a Power Hour bundle for R10 a day will receive one hour of talk time to call Vodacom customers. The bundle can be purchased between 6am and 6pm on weekdays and customers can make calls to family and friends of up to an hour until 8pm on the day of purchase.

Mostafa ElBeltagy, Managing Executive for Prepaid Segments at Vodacom said:  "The Power Hour concept proved to be an instant hit with customers since they could talk for an hour during peak times at reduced rates. We’ve brought Power Hour back and this time we've extended the times from 6am to 8pm." 

To access the promotion, customers need to dial *111# free from their cellphones, select ‘Power Hour' and buy a bundle.

Once customers have used up their 60 minutes of talk time voice calls will be charged according to their current price plan rate. All unused minutes will expire at 8pm on the day of purchase.

This offer can be enjoyed by prepaid customers who have been active on the Vodacom network for the last 30 days. Customers need to have a minimum of R10 in their cellphone wallet to purchase the bundle. Customers can only purchase 1 bundle per day during the week i.e. the upper limit is 5 Power Hour bundles each week.
