After two Lonestar Cell MTN subscribers, taxi driver Johnson Goyee, and Robert Johnson won a trip to the United States of America on Friday, 28 February through the company’s “Da Your Time Na” raffle draw promotion, another two lucky subscribers similarly won the draw last Friday, March 28, 2014 like Robert and Goyee did.
Both winners have also expressed interest in traveling to the United States of America as Robert and Goyee requested. Last Friday’s raffle draw was held at the company’s sub office in the commercial city of Paynesville Red-light.
Lonestar Cell at its normal projector search for winners during the draw picked up two subscribers among over 44,000 subscribers that participated in the draw. The GSM giant also dished out other prizes to subscribers who are part of the “Da Your Time Na” and mobile money promotions, as part of a marketing strategy.
Both subscribers chanted pro-Lonestar Cell MTN slogans as they proceeded to the company’s headquarters to receive their prizes. In order to be part of the “Da Your Time Na” raffle draw, subscribers should text the word “WIN” to short code 3232. Friday’s draw saw 16 other persons walked away with fabulous prizes, ranging from the newest Samsung Android phones, a 2.5 KVA generator, tiger generator, 10 gallon gasoline coupons, flat screen television sets, DStv sets, stereo set, cartons of creamy wheat, and DVD player.
The raffle draw took place at the company’s headquarter in Monrovia. The promotions are being held in collaboration with DStv-Liberia, Aminata Filling Services, Samsung appliances, Eco and GT banks, respectively. The IT and Financial Analyst of Lonestar Cell MTN, Paul Montgomery, said the promotions are intended to improve the lives of ordinary Liberians, especially Lonestar Cell MTN subscribers, in line with the government’s poverty reduction strategy.
Paul encouraged subscribers to continue to send and receive money through the mobile money service as well as use US$5 dollars weekly to stand a winning chance in the “Da Your Time Na” raffle draw to win fabulous prizes, including a travel to the United States of America, Canada, Dubai, United Kingdom or Brazil.
“Lonestar Cell remains the only GSM Company with the widest coverage and best mobile phone internet services and when we say something we mean it. From now to the end of April, those who send and receive money from mobile money will stand chance of winning prizes because our word is our bond,” he vowed. For their part, the winners commended the company for the prizes and promised to continue using Lonestar Cell MTN’s services, while encouraging others to join the network.
According to Montgomery, mobile money is the cheapest means by which one can send and receive money, recharge phones as well as transact business in the country. He said as per the company’s mobile money rules, only those who subscribe to mobile money and receive or send 1000 Liberian Dollars or above will qualify to partake in the raffle draw.
