MTN wants you to win a brand new Aeroplane…Seriously!



The competition amongst telecoms service providers is heating up once more. Not content with all the numerous competitions and giveaways, MTN has decided to up the ante…they are giving away an aeroplane.

Yes, a brand new aeroplane.

Quite interesting isn’t it. That said, we are sure most people know that the cost of owning an aeroplane is so exorbitant that it’s basically impossible to maintain one except you are Forbes-list worthy.

Anyway, there is a cash equivalent option for those who don’t want to take their chances with the plane. No word on the model and monetary value of the plane though.

What next? Airtel, Glo or Etisalat offering a trip to the moon? This should be an interesting one….

Here are the details on the competition

To participate in the MTN Ultimate Wonder promo, new and existing customers are to recharge with a minimum of N200 to qualify for weekly draws. Multiple entries are allowed for increased chances of winning. Recharges of minimum N3, 000 over the duration of the promo will qualify for the grand prize of an Aeroplane.

New and existing Customers are to recharge with a minimum of N200 (weekly) to qualify for weekly draws.
Multiple entries will be allowed for increased chances of winning.
Recharges of minimum N3,000 over the duration of the promo will qualify for the grand prize of an AIRPLANE
Promo will run for 3 months
1 Weekly star prize winner of N2,ooo,ooo plus 100 weekly consolation prizes of N50,000
Sticker campaign with Mystery Spotter offering N50,000 cash prizes over the duration of the promo (100 per month)

Grand Prize : 1 Airplane
Weekly Star prize : N2m for 12winners for 12 weeks.
Weekly prizes : N50,000 for 100 winners for 12 weeks
Mystery Spotter Prizes : N50,000 for 100 winners/month for 3 months
The Grand prize winner also has an option of getting the cash equivalent or the Airplane.

Will you enter this competition? Plane or Cash?

      You try setting up a telecoms service in a country like Nigeria and see how far you go with it. How easy is it to access anything in Naija??!

    Promos just got crazier since 7up’s Daewoo Racer promo. Why don’t they invest these funds on low tariffs and improved QoS?! Such would cut across board and become the ultimate promo. What better advert than that! If you insist, give away 1,000 aeroplanes!

    Instead of you idiots to donate the planes to these broke ass airlines that keep crashing and killing innocent people, your here giving people something they don’t need! smh

    Not sure if the idea is feasible but it definitely is causing the news to go round; I’m sure that is what they wanted; huge PR surrounding the campaign. So, all the best to them!

    First off, the plane is a very small one. Check out the promo on in the papers, the name of the plane is written at the bottom. Secondly, if I won, I’ll tell them to hold on to it for a couple of months and then look for partners and start my own private ‘jet’ charter company and transport people within some parts of Nigeria because I’m sure a plane of that size can’t fly very long distances.

    aeroplane!!!!!!!!!! To do what??????????? mtn should stop this at once. its so sad , organizations like mtn encourage the material driven soceity that we have today. They should use d money to award scholarships to students, or help people to start some buisness, or pay for people health bills and save lives, cos it can never b enough. we still av quite a lot of nigerians living in poverty and all they cld come out with is dis? when someone wins a plane how will he fly or maintain it? promo in nigeria shd begin to encourage productivity not consuming lifestyles. well i wld like to take this whole thing as a joke, cos if its true, some pple needs to start getting sued.

    Mtn remains the worst EVER! In telecom service delivery. Who has ever won anything from mtn? At least we see glo and etisalat winners and their winnings. I wonder what they are up to. Nigerians be very careful! Mtn is all about, the more you look the less you see.
