CHRISTMAS came early for Willowfontein’s Joyce Mkhize who was the lucky winner of the SuperSave “Win a Car” competition.

Mkhize (41), drove away with a new BMW 1 Series last Thursday at Harry Gwala Stadium after her key unlocked the car that was sought after by eight other finalists.

An ecstatic Mkhize said she had no doubt she would be the one driving off with the car.

“I was praying for this car from the first day I received a call to tell me I was one of the finalists. I am very happy; I knew the Lord would answer my prayers. I even joked with the other finalists that the car was mine and they shouldn’t waste their time.”

Mkhize’s stroke of luck came at a time when she was looking to upgrade her car.

“I have been driving a Toyota Tazz for many years so I wanted a new car. Winning this BMW has been a blessing in disguise. When we all had to choose keys I asked God to pick the winning key for me and he did. I was not even nervous because I knew the car was mine.”

Mkhize said she can’t remember how many times she entered the competition.

“I have been entering from the first month the competition began, every time I would go to do my groceries at SuperSave I made sure I entered. I think that also increased my chances of being selected as a finalist.”

The Win a Car competition has been running for more than 10 years with SuperSave giving a car to show their gratitude to customers.

SuperSave manager Suhail Bayat said this year they decided to give away a BMW in line with the store’s 32nd birthday.

“We received thousands of entries, nine were randomly selected from the poll by SuperSave staff and to ensure the process was fair we had an auditor present.”

Bayat said the nine finalists were contacted telephonically and invited to attend the competition finale where they all had to pick car keys but only one could unlock the car.

“The competition opened in July this year and closed end of October. We have been giving cars every year and it keeps getting better, this is done to show gratitude to our customers and to also thank them for their continuous loyalty over the years. It feels really good to know that we are giving back to the community that supports us,” he said.

The eight other finalists didn’t go home empty-handed, they each received LED TVs and SuperSave also gave away 20 grocery vouchers to the value of between R500 and R2 000 to other customers who attended the competition grand finale.

AmaZebra tradional Zulu dance group from Ntuzuma provided entertainment on the night.
