He also congratulated the winners and wished them best of luck.
One of the lucky winners from Kasur, while expressing his happiness over winning a brand new car, said, “This marvelous offer by Ufone has changed my life. I belong to a poor family and couldn’t even think of buying such a beautiful car but Ufone has transformed my dream into a reality. I want to tell other people to test their fate by participating in these grand schemes like ‘Shahcar’ offered by Ufone, in the future.
The offer that took the subscribers by storm was in operation from 7th February to 31st March 2013. In order to qualify for the lucky draw customers were simply required to buy a Ufone SIM, or use an existing Ufone connection or simply port into Ufone’s network and consume a minimum balance of Rs.300 before 31st March 2013. The minimum consumption of Rs.300 automatically ensured a chance to win a brand new Toyota Corolla via lucky draw; interestingly, the more the customers consumed the more chances they got to win.
The offer was designed to cater to Ufone’s valued customers all across Pakistan and after the draw the same fact was reflected amongst the winners as they hailed from across Pakistan and cross section of the society. This lucky draw has successfully bridged the demographical gap between people living in smaller towns and urban metropolis. Majority of the car recipients hailed from smaller cities, where chances to improve living standards are comparatively thin. The result of this lucky draw has showed that when it comes to Ufone anyone from anywhere can be a winner.
