Lasuli Ngobi, a Chapati makeshift stall owner and resident of Mubende Town, is among the recent batch of winners to walk away with a Tukonectinge branded Toyota wish from Crown Beverages, under the ongoing Tukonectinge with Pepsi promotion.
“I am thankful to Allah who granted me an early Eid gift. I did not expect it, though I prayed for a miracle.” Ngobi said, adding that, “During the Ramadhan season, I would buy sodas for my neighbours at work and keep the bottle tops which I would later send the codes with my partner to enter the Tukonectinge promo and stand a chance to win,” he remarked.
Ngobi explained that owning a car came sooner than expected because his chapati business barely makes him enough to meet his personal and family expenses and only expresses his gratitude to Allah who made this dream become a reality.
Throughout the campaign, Pepsi has rewarded its consumers with a total of; 10 out of 25 Toyota Wish Cars, 18 out 24 fully paid trips to Dubai, 6 out of the 24 Fridges, among other prizes including instant mobile money, airtime in different denominations and soda.
Meanwhile, Centenary Bank in April launched a digital rewards campaign in which customers and staff were to be rewarded for using their CenteVisa cards when making purchases through the global visa card services platform.
The campaign was dubbed “Kwasa with CenteVisa”.
It has so far rewarded up to 40 customers and staff that have transacted using their CenteVisa cards at least four times a month.
One of the winners identified as Aidan Kateregga said he was surprised when he received a call informing him that he was drawn as one of the winners of the weekly prizes and yet he had only recently begun using the visa card services due to the convenience that it comes with.
“I recently started using visa card services because of the many benefits of using it, and because I can use it for different purchase points including buying fuel for my car or cooking gas, for groceries at most supermarkets around, for online shopping on sites like Amazon, and buying medicine at pharmacies among other places,” explained Kateregga.
