Nigeria’s indigenous telecom powerhouse, Globacom, has repackaged its ongoing Overload promotion, increasing the instant bonus accruable to customers from 200 percent to 400 percent for any airtime recharge of N200 and above.
The Glo Overload promo, now called Glo Overload Reloaded, which is billed to produce N120 million has already produced 20 millionaires before the upgrade.
Glo Overload was introduced together with four other mega offerings by Globacom late last year to reward its loyal subscribers and spice up the Yuletide and New Year celebrations.
All subscribers needed to do to be entitled to 200 percent bonus airtime was to recharge their phone with airtime of N200 denomination and above.
With the Glo Overload Reloaded Promo, a subscriber who recharges with N200 will automatically gets a total value of N1000. Airtime recharge of N500 will give the subscriber a total of N2,500 automatically; N1000 will give N5000; N2000 will give N10,000; and N5000 will give N25,000 value.
According to the company, billions of naira worth of free airtime and data will be given out in the course of the promotion.
Globacom said that subscribers will be able to use their main credit to call any network at any time of the day and the bonus airtime for Glo to Glo calls and SMS between 10pm and 8am, depending on the validity period of the recharge denomination, which ranges from three to 20 days.
Also under Glo Overload Reloaded, data subscribers are entitled to expanded benefits. Previously, Glo Overload gave subscribers 200 percent bonus data for new data plan or renewal from N2000 and above. For instance, a subscriber who paid for data plan subscription of N3000 got 4.5GB of data. However, with Glo Overload Reloaded, a subscriber gets 4.5GB of data for data plan subscription or renewal of N2,500.
Globacom said that in addition to the enumerated benefits, subscribers on the Glo Overload Reloaded Promo platform will also have a chance to become one of the 120 millionaires that the promo is billed to produce while it lasts. Twenty winners have already emerged and their prizes of N1million each were presented to them, while 100 more are expected to be picked in the weeks ahead.
Globacom’s Regional Chief Marketing Officer, Mr. Ashok Israni, said over N30 million naira worth of gifts will be given out as embellishment prizes in the course of the promotion. The prizes, according to him, include modems, Nokia Lumia Smartphones, LED TV, HP Dual core Laptops, iPad Air and iPhone 6 devices.
Israni said the repackaging of the promo and the enhancement of its benefits followed huge approval of the promo by the company’s teeming subscribers.
“The feedback from our esteemed subscribers has been overwhelming,” said Israni. “Glo Overload was so positively received that we were inundated with commendations from our dear subscribers who were delighted by the offer. We thought to ourselves, how can we further excite our cherished customers? So we decided to expand the benefits. It is our way of saying ’thank you’ to our ever loyal customers,” he said.
The Globacom executive called on subscribers across the country wishing to benefit from Glo Overload Reloaded to dial *200# on their phones just once to opt in. They will consequently be admitted to the promo platform and be able to enjoy all the promised benefits.
Israni thanked Globacom subscribers for the support they have given the company so far and called on them to keep faith with the proudly Nigerian network.
