MTN to give away free TVs with new contracts

Johannesburg - Mobile network provider MTN is offering customers a free Samsung 32 inch TV with the purchase of a Galaxy S8, S8 Plus or Note8 smartphone. 

The promotion will be valid for customers who sign up for a new 24-month contract over the weekend of December 15 to 18. Customers will receive a Samsung LED TV valued at R3 499.00.

Jacqui O’Sullivan, executive for Corporate Affairs at MTN SA, said: “We want to make sure our customers consistently feel the added value we bring to them, in addition to our world class network. Through this promotion, we want to help spread the holiday cheer, by rewarding customers with a free TV when they sign up for one of these highly sought-after devices.”

MTN SA CEO Godfrey Motsa recently said the network would cut data costs to 29c per megabyte for its "accidental users" who typically use less than 5MB per month, and those who use more can now expect to pay 60c out-of-bundle. 

O'Sullivan said customers would be able to purchase 1GB data bundles through the network’s cellphone app for R50 which will be valid for a week, as the company moves towards lower data costs.
