9ja free credit SIM promo debuts on Etisalat

In order to drum support for the on-going Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) card registration in the country, Etisalat has proved yet another innovative aspect of the company by introducing 9ja free credit promo for participants on its network.

Etisalat Nigeria today in Lagos said the introduction of a SIM registration promotion tagged 9ja Free Credit Promo, specifically designed to reward new and existing customers who register or have registered their SIMs with 30 per cent bonus credit to call any network in Nigeria.

The promo which commences on June 1st, 2011 offers all customers on the Etisalat network the opportunity to benefit from the promo regardless of their subscription plan, according to Etisalat Chief Commercial Officer, Mr. Wael Ammar.

He said that to enjoy this offer, new and existing subscribers must have their Etisalat SIM card registered in the month of June. However, new subscribers to the Etisalat network are also required to dial 200 to activate their new SIMs before registration.

All registered customers, he said, would have all their recharges in the month of June monitored and they will be rewarded with 30 per cent of total recharges made during June as free airtime up to a maximum of N10,000. The reward will apply in the month of July and can be used to call and send SMS to all networks in Nigeria.

He explained that for newly registered subscribers during the month of June, the first recharge made after SIM registration kicks-off a 30 day monitoring cycle for recharges.

He cited an instance, saying that if a customer register his or her SIM on the 15th of June, all recharges between 15th of June till 15th of July will be monitored and 30 per cent bonus will be given on the 16th of July.

“The bonus is open to all Etisalat prepaid and postpaid subscribers on easy starter, easycliq, elite world, classic post paid and enuff yarn+. Customers who have already registered their SIMs will instantly begin to accumulate the bonus on their recharge from June 1st, 2011,” he said.

Ammar further said the promo aims to encourage subscribers to register their SIMs before the deadline set by NCC and continue enjoying the benefits of being on the Etisalat network.

“The 9ja free credit promo is our way of supporting the NCC’S drive to register all lines in Nigeria by motivating our customers to go and get their SIMs registered and get 30 per cent bonus of their total recharges to call all networks. What this simply means is that if you recharge a total of N200 in 30 days, you get N60, for N500 you get N150 up to a maximum of N10,000," he said.

Upon registration, Ammar pointed out that all recharges from first recharge are monitored for the next 30 days and the day after their 30th day, a 30 epr cent bonus of all your recharges will be credited to your account as bonus. The excitement is even heightened as the bonus can be used to call other networks within a 30 day window.

The Etisalat SIM registration promo is geared towards making sure all its customers are registered before the NCC’s deadline of September, 2011 in order to avoid the mandated disconnection of all unregistered SIMs from the innovative 0809ja network. While duly registered subscribers who recharge during the month qualify for the bonus, SIM registration is an ongoing process.

Etisalat currently has 1595 SIM registration points in all its experience centres nationwide, distribution partners’ outlets and designated Oceanic Bank branches. Etisalat customers can visit www.etisalat.com.ng or call 200 to check the SIM registration outlet nearest to them.
