“We want to bring value to South Africans who are feeling the pinch of the increased cost of living. We decided to launch UltraBonus as our default prepaid tariff plan and believe this will go a long way in making the cost to stay connected more affordable. With all this great value, we believe our customers will be able to further stretch their hard-earned rands,” says Cell C Chief Commercial Officer, Junaid Munshi.
No matter the recharge amount, with UltraBonus, customers will receive three times the value every time they recharge. Customers receive 100% bonus value of the recharge amount, which is valid for calls to any local network (including Cell C) as well as for SMS and data. In addition, they will receive another 100% bonus value of the recharge amount for Cell C to Cell C calls as well as SMS and data.
“This means that by simply being a Cell C customer you get 200% added value on top of your recharge value to make more calls, send more SMS and enjoy even more data on our quality, high-speed nationwide network,” adds Munshi.
Example: A R50 recharge will give customers R150 in airtime value
Bonus airtime is valid for 24 hours from the recharge date and time, but can be extended with additional recharges, prior to the bonus value expiring. Bonus value that applies to data therefore does not expire for as long as customers recharge prior to expiry. The bonus airtime cannot be used to purchase bundles, pay for premium-rated services nor can it be transferred.
Since it’s the default prepaid tariff plan, all new customers who join Cell C will get this benefit from the word go.
Cell C prepaid customers that want to migrate to the UltraBonus tariff plan can do so by dialling *108# and selecting UltraBonus as their new tariff plan.
