With 10 weeks remaining to the kick-off of the FIFA World Cup in South Africa, MTN has announced that Pay As You Go customers will receive 10 seconds free call time on weekends for every 10 seconds they talk during the week.

“This promotion is another way in which we are rewarding our customers for using our network," says Donovan Smith: GM: consumer marketing at MTN SA. "Furthermore, we will also be selecting 100 customers every weekend until the end of the promotion 4 June 2010 who stand in line to win a range of prizes including 200 double tickets for the FIFA World Cup and Sony Ericsson handsets."
MTN pre-paid customers will qualify to take part in the promotion by making a call that is at least 10 seconds or longer per day during peak times (07h:00 – 18h:59). The seconds accumulated during the week will be redeemed on the weekend from Saturday 00h01. The free seconds will be valid for MTN to MTN calls only and will remain valid for the entire weekend until Sunday 23h:59 any unused free airtime will be forfeited.
