No luck but thanks for being a loyal Vodafone customer.

Nothing here either, will be a trip to the store tomorrow morning if I have time or I will be defently going into the shop on Tuesday when I am back from aussie.
I can't win the N85 as I am not on pre pay.

My mother has been with them since Bell South so I would of though she would of got something but no don't know what she is going to do though.

We will see what plans are on offer.

PS i also when through all my friends who are on vodafone and got the same response for all (20-30 people)

spazz: I tried me, my sister, my girlfriend, my Mum.. nothing.



Perhaps they should've given away 10,000 lots of $100 credit? I would've been stoked with that, $1000 is kinda excessive..?


we all thought exactly the same, 10.000 $100 would really get to the masses rather than a select few

swisskiwi: The thing I dont get is why people think that being loyal and not gettinganything like the $1000 credit and so moving to another provider such as Telecom or 2degrees will get them more. Sure they will get a a great deal if they decide to move, but then what happens after you've been with that company for 5 years, chances are you'll just be treated as an existing customer again.

I know lots of people who have been with Telecom for years and are very loyal and have never received anything for it, the same applies with Vodafone. Its just the way telecos in NZ and overseas seem to operate it. They are always interested in new customers, but never treat loyal customers all that well.

Where on the otherhand hospitality organisations strive to keep loyal customers. The main reason behind that is that it is cheaper to keep a loyal customer than to try and gain new ones. (I do have an article to back this claim, but I just cant remember where I put it) Tongue out



I don't think it's becuase no one here so far has won the $1,000 creidt.

For me, i would rather Vodafone lower their prices than give away $1,000,000 (of course i wouldn't be saying that if i had won)


I also agree it may have been better to give 10,000 custmers $100 each.

Thanks a million? Why should someone get 1,000 thank you's and i don't even get 1? hehe

I have been with Vodafone for years, in that time I won a free trip all expenses paid to watch the Warriors play in the semi finals in 2002 ( I think), and a K700 phone ( when they were new).

I agree with you that Vodafone should have offered 10,000 customers $100 each, as that would have at least provided a good percentage of Vodafone customers with some credit.

I would wait till June regarding Vodafone lowering their prices. I heard a rumour thats when prices or plans would be changing. Also, I just got my Vodafone Mobile Broadband bill which covers the 20 May to the 20 June and I'm on the 1GB plan and they only charged me $24.95 for it as opposed to the usual $50, so it could mean they are changing the pricing on their mobile broadband, which would make sense with the new $10 for 100MB deal.

I'd rather they had used the $1 million to improve their service.

I fail to see why it's totally off topic? He's still talking about the promo..... And i agree with him.

My response was in regards to this comment in the press release.

We?ll be giving Vodafone customers one million dollars of free airtime on Thursday to thank you for your patience while we solved network interference problems.


I'm not totally sure they have solved the interference problems... (or if the problems were caused by interference). I was being honest as reliability would help me more than even the $1000. I'll leave it at that.

But I bet I know somebody that knows somebody that got it, doubt I will ever find out about it though.
