Tigo Rwanda celebrates Saint Valentine’s Day with the ‘Tigo Month of Love’

Tigo Rwanda has launched the “Tigo Month of Love” campaign today. Until 29 February, Tigo customers will be able to share airtime and internet data with their loved ones while also standing the chance of winning great prizes.

Customers can gift airtime to their loved ones

In addition to subscribers receiving the full value of whatever pack they purchase, their special someone will receive the equivalent amount in free airtime.

Tigo Rwanda Chief Executive Officer, Mr Tongai Maramba said: “Tigo’s Month of Love is another way for Tigo to express our love for our customers; not only by handing out free airtime but gifts as well.”

To access this promotion a subscriber dials *155#, adds the number of their loved one, then select a package. After the customer receives the pack along with the confirmation message their loved one will instantly receive the same amount of airtime along with a notification. In addition, if the customer wins a prize, they will receive an SMS notification from Tigo or a call from 0722123123 to inform them about the gift they have won and how to claim it.

Tigo customers who participate in Tigo’s Month of Love be able to win airtime worth Rwf 500, 100 MBs worth of internet data, dinner for two at the romantic Bistro restaurant in Urban Boutique hotel and cinema ticket for two at Century Cinema. Weekly winners will walk away with Samsung J1 4G-enabled smartphones.
