$10K Grand Final Home Renovation Winner: Salome Matua from Salamumu &  Vodafone Samoa CEO, Nofoasaefa Satish Sharma.

Homes are our sanctuary, a place you go to get away from the outside world and relax. Wouldn’t it be amazing to surround yourself with luxurious touches like beautiful carpets, decadent bathroom tiles, and high-tech appliances – without breaking your budget? Well, Vodafone (in partnership with SMI Hardware) offered a Home  Renovation promotion which helped 10 lucky families to have just that and so much more.

The promotion started a few days before Mother’s Day on May the 5th with a duration of 10 weeks. The Home Renovation Promotion consisted of 9 x $5,000 tala home renovation vouchers, won on a weekly basis plus the grand prize of 1 x $10,000 tala won on the final week. To have entered the draw, Vodafone / SMI customers only needed to do one of the three things:

  1. Top Up $10 or more
  2. Spend $50 or more at SMI
  3. Buy any handset/ device from Vodafone

“We’ve come across stories on the Samoa Observer regarding families living in uncomfortable conditions.  To help, our team worked hard to put together a Home Renovation promotion to provide our customers an opportunity of a lifetime. The Home Renovation promotion is valued at a total of $55,000 tala, split between 10 golden winners.” says Nofoasaefa Satish Sharma, Vodafone CEO.

On the 30th July Vodafone presented the final grand prize of $10,000 via a competition where 5 contestants had to vie for the lucky pouch which held the lucky $10,000 voucher. The other contestants who did not win, were still able to walk away with a handset and merchandise each. The lucky Grand Final Winner of $10,000 is a Mother from Salamumu, who said she will be using her Home Renovation voucher to help extend her family home and so much more. She also mentioned that her family have been in dire need of a Home Upgrade for so long and that Vodafone’s promotion has come just in time, being before the wet season.

“Faafetai Tele Lava Vodafone, this voucher will go a long way. We’ve been in need of maintaining & upgrading our home, but have never had the extra funds to do so. I appreciate all that you do within our communities and encourage others to make the switch today, too.” $10,000 Grand Prize Winner – Salome Matua from Salamumu.

Vodafone’s CEO Nofoasaefa Satish Sharma reiterated how family values are important to Vodafone, hence they swayed from the usual vehicle prizes to another first in Samoa being Home Renovation Vouchers to help families build the comfortable home of their dreams.

“We encourage more families to switch to Vodafone & enjoy the benefits we have to offer; affordable data plans, the widest network in Samoa with over 100 Towers and more meaningful promotional giveaways which benefits the entire family. Congratulations to all who participated. If you’ve missed a chance to win, try again for our Father’s Day Promotion where we are offering 11 lucky Dads a chance to win prizes such as Resort Getaways, Brush Cutters, Lawn Mowers, BBQ Sets and so much more, every week for 5 weeks. That’s 55 lucky winners!”  Concluded  Nofoasaefa Satish Sharma  Vodafone CEO.
