ECONET, a leading telecommunication service provider in Zimbabwe on Thursday launched one of its biggest ever consumer promotions named 7X that will give customers 700 percent free bonus airtime every day. Every Econet customer gets customised daily usage target and will get back 7 times the talk time in the form of free minutes, SMS and mobile internet upon achieving the daily target.

The promotion will run for three months.
Launching the promotion, Econet Wireless Zimbabwe CEO Douglas Mboweni said: “In developing the promotion, we were driven by the need to give our valued customers more value for their money. Today we are giving them an opportunity to talk more, SMS more and surf the internet more. Indeed Econet Gives You More.”
Explaining how the promotion works, Mboweni added, “Realising that our valued clients’ average daily spending trends are not equal, all offers are personalised. Customers can reach daily usage target by using Econet line by either calling or texting any other Econet customer as well as browsing the internet. On reaching the 7X bonus target at any point during the day, customers will get notification that they have reached their target and have been allocated 700% bonus. Customer can use the 700% airtime bonus to browse, SMS and make calls to any other Econet customers.”
“To confirm their 7X daily target, our customers simply need to dial *143#. To both our valued current and prospective customers, Econet is open for business,” added Mboweni.
