Vodafone Qatar Expands Successful Offer of Special Numbers at 50% off
3 January 2010: Vodafone Qatar today announced that it has collected more than QR 7,000,000 with its sale on My Numbers and Star Numbers via its website at half of the original reservation fee. The operator will be extending this promotion until 15 February 2010.
"We began the promotion of 50% off number reservation fees to celebrate Eid Al-Adha, with proceeds funding the charitable commitments Vodafone has made to Reach Out To Asia," said Geoff Engel, Head of Online Sales and Self Care at Vodafone Qatar. "Today we're very happy to report that we've raised more than QR 7,000,000."
Vodafone offers three types of numbers. The first type, Star Numbers, are any number with a reservation fee beginning at QR 1000 and going into the millions (for example 779 7777). The second type, My Numbers, are numbers priced at QR 500, which may match an existing number or have some other special significance. The third type, Free Numbers, are always available to all of Vodafone customers on either Freedom or Red.
With this promotion, Vodafone is offering its full range of Star Numbers and My Numbers for 50 percent less than the listed reservation fee to customers who purchase Flexi on Freedom online. Meanwhile, in-store customers can reserve Star Numbers with Flexi on Freedom or Red at the same discount as online, or can choose a My Number free with purchase of any Flexi on Freedom.
"It's all thanks to the continuing generosity of our customers in Qatar that we've had such success with this promotion," said Daniel Horan, Director of Vodafone's Consumer Business Unit, "and it's our customers' generosity that will allow us to extend this promotion into the new year."
