New Vodafone Mates Prepay Plan + Competition [ended]

Vodafone announces New Zealand’s first truly flexible Prepay plan called Vodafone Mates, which gives young Kiwis the chance to create their own phone plans. It will allow customers to dial up or down their data, TXTs, and minutes to suit their needs. There are more than 160 plan combinations people can choose from – all at the touch of a button, via the My Vodafone app.

Existing Vodafone customer? You can get instant easy access through the My Vodafone app. Then you’ll be able to design your plan in a few easy steps, view your usage and also top up. It’s really easy. For example, for $19 you get 100mins, unlimited TXTs and 500MB data. Or, if you want more data, for $19 you can get 50mins, 50 TXTs and 750MB of data.

Switching to Vodafone? You can order a free SIM online – and have it delivered the next day at no cost to major urban centres nationwide (if ordered before 12pm).

The Rewards

A range of rewards and experiences, including a whopping 500MB data bonus every time customers under 25 years old top up $20 or more on Vodafone Mates Prepay. That equals up to 5000 snaps, or 2000 Instagram uploads or 250 minutes of WhatsApp calling. Not bad at all. 

The Add-Ons

Vodafone Mates offers an exclusive range of great value, time-based data Add-Ons, like 1GB for $3 to use on a night out. Customers can also access a lifesaving Prepay IOU. TXT IOU to 468 and customers can access an instant $5 credit.

Vodafone Mates customers will also receive Fantastic Fridays rewards, like movie deals, sports tickets and fashion and lifestyle experiences.

Marooned in the Auckland harbour – who wants to be New Zealand’s Best Best mate?

How far would you go for your best mates?

Would you take a skinny dip in the ocean mid-winter? Eat the hottest chilli in the world, to win your mates a tropical island experience in Fiji?

Vodafone Mates, is launching a search for NZ’s Best Best Mate – one extraordinary kiwi willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, so their friends can take a tropical island holiday in Fiji.

From today, Vodafone Mates is offering four kiwi friends the chance to enjoy an all-expenses paid tropical island holiday in Fiji at Beachcomber Island, for up to six nights. The catch is, one of the four mates will have to earn the trip for them, by staying behind in New Zealand and marooning him/herself on a barge anchored in the middle of Auckland Harbour.

They’ll be sleeping in a tent, and the longer they stay on the barge – the longer their mates can stay on Beachcomber Island. The Best Best Mate will also be asked to do a series of challenges, like taking a skinny dip, just so their three friends can enjoy extra experiences in Fiji, like a fishing trip, or a snorkelling adventure.

In return for all of this, they’ll earn the legendary title of NZ’s Best Best Mate (plus a lifetime of admiration from their mates, for earning them a holiday in Fiji).

You have until 19 August to enter the search for NZ’s Best Best Mate. On Monday 22 August, a name will be drawn out of a hat to identify the mate who will be marooned on the barge and transported by boat into the Auckland Harbour. Meanwhile, their three mates will be flown to Fiji.
