The “Shake to Win Christmas Promotion” resounded as a favourite among Digicel customers with over 30,000 Vincentians winning and benefitting.
The “Shake to Win Christmas Promotion” which lasted from Friday, 22nd November; to Tuesday, 31st December 2019, offered Digicel prepaid and postpaid customers the chance to win daily and weekly prizes by simply “shaking their phone”. This was made possible through the “Shake It’ gaming mechanism in the My Digicel App.

To date, with thousands of winners, winning customers are still living in the moment and when given the opportunity, each winner has a story to tell. Each experience is a record of the success of the “Shake to Win Christmas Promotion”, with many calling it a sure favourite. All with the aim to involve and please its customers, Digicel is extremely happy about the resounding achievement of that goal in 2019. Participants eagerly tell their stories.
Grand Prize winner, Officer Cut-bert Morris, who won a 50” Samsung smart television and a family package of four Samsung A10 smartphones with one year of full service for four family members, was adamant that it is always a good feeling to win.
“Actually, when I put on the 7-day plan and I was informed that I had qualified for the Shake To Win campaign,” he said, “I pressed and it came up and said that I won the Samsung TV, the four phones and the plan for the four family members for year.” He said he thought it was a prank and after being at a loss for words, his excitement was overwhelming when he realized it was real. He continued with, “To be a part of Digicel is great.
I have been a customer from Day One to today, and winning this Grand Prize makes me feel really excited and good.”
Likewise, double-winner Jamie Morris’ who won a 50” Samsung smart TV and $1,000, could hardly contain his excitement. “When I first heard of the campaign over the radio, I put on a data plan like I was accustomed to doing.
Then they said to look, a number will call. People started calling me and I was saying Shake To Win with Digicel, until eventually I got a call saying, ‘Congratulations, you have won!’” He recalled that, upon hearing that he felt “awesome”.
He proffered, “You know, a whole $1,000. just like that! Digicel giving back!” His Christmas experience was greatly enhanced with his wins.
Similarly, $1,000 winner Brenda Veira, was happy to share that, “When I found out that I won I was literally shaking! That day, I had no money to buy lunch, and was heading off to Bequia for work, so I definitely needed credit.
With assistance, I activated a 5-day data plan and that said day while I was in Bequia, I got two missed calls – Shake To Win with Digicel! I was at a loss for words! Fumbling and shaking, I made sure I didn’t miss the third one.
I believe I said ‘stupidness’ when I answered but I listened to the programme and heard what it was like, and I still didn’t know it was my day. It was great! My winning was like a prayer answered because I was dead broke!”
Ms. Veira thought that it was really good to have Digical actually giving something to her. “I never, ever, ever won anything, ever,” she remarked convincingly.
Zel Charles won $2,000. Her experience went like this: “When I heard about the promotion I downloaded the app.
I used it to pay my bill and I zeroed my balance twice. I downloaded the data plan on two occasions. When I shook to win, I guess it was because I used the app for those things that I was given the opportunity to receive the call!” The very elated Zel Charles didn’t even realize that she had won with that call. She was happy though.
When considering her good fortune, she gave Digicel a great thumbs-up when she said, “I felt good that Digicel was able to give back cash. It is really us the customers who really keep the company afloat and make it possible for it be profitable so it is good that customers were able to share in the profit of the company. Thanks Digicel!”
If one were to poll other winners in the Digicel “Shake to Win Christmas Promotion” about the impact it had on their 2019 Christmas experience, the responses would be similar to those outlined.
Already, patrons are looking forward to see what Digicel will pull out of the bag in 2020 having announced it will continue its Shake to Win Promotion into January.
This is geared at giving customers the opportunity to Shake in the MyDigicel app and win every Saturday and the continuation of its radio Cash Call giving customers the opportunity to win $500 daily, every hour on the hour when customers answer their phones, “Shake To Win with Digicel.”
Digicel promises that all its promotions for 2020 will be innovative, exciting and open to all its customers.
