Vivo Energy Uganda, the company that distributes and markets Shell branded fuels and lubricants in Uganda, brought cheer to motorists with exciting rewards in their recently concluded Shell 10 Weeks of Cheer campaign.
The campaign which kicked off in December and ended with February saw customers who spent UGX50,000 at a participating Shell station handed draw coupons requiring them to enter the competition by sending a unique code and their license registration number to 8008 by SMS.
Through weekly draws, 10 lucky jackpot winners walked away with UGX 500,000 worth of fuel each.
“My work involves a lot of field work and we often have to use a car,” Veronica Ndagire, a sales personnel who was one of the jackpot winners said. “One day, while filling up at a Shell fuel station in Namanve we were given scratch cards, and that is when I started sending messages.”
Ndagire revealed that she was skeptical about the promotion, and could not believe that she was one of the lucky jackpot winners.
“I even thought the promotion was not real and did not believe it when someone from Vivo Energy called me telling me that I had won fuel worth 500K.” She said. “I had almost shrugged it off, and then I received a message reminding me to go redeem my fuel.”
For Kugonza Jennifer, who had learned about the promotion through a friend, she had no doubts when she was told she was one of the winners.
“I was encouraged to participate in the promotion by my friend who had already won free fuel,” Kugoza said. “After sending messages for a week, I was also a winner. They called telling me I had won Ugx 500K worth of fuel.”
“I am really excited to have been one of the lucky winners and because of this I will always be a loyal Shell customer.” She added.
A total of 19,365 customers were rewarded with prizes worth UGX 500M during the campaign. The campaign spread cheer to all regions of Uganda with over 100 Shell stations countrywide participating to ensure convenience for customers across the country.
