Vodacom’s Talking Points have been around for a very long time. In fact, we’ve become so accustomed to receiving them that many people have forgotten what power their points hold. To refresh your memory, here is a breakdown of how you can utilise your Vodacom Talking Points.
First things first, remember that only Prepaid customers qualify for this rewards programme.
How does it work?
Every time you recharge with a value higher than R10, you are rewarded with points. Basically, you get 1 point for every R10 that you recharge with.
R10 or R12 recharge – 1 point
R29 recharge – 3 points
R110 recharge – 11 points
R49 SMS bundle voucher – 5 points
You can earn points on the following:
• Vodacom prepaid recharges
• Data bundle voucher purchases
• SMS bundle voucher purchases
What can you do with these points?
You can redeem your points for various freebies, like cellphones, tablets, data and SMS bundles. If you have 1000 points and less, they can be redeemed for data, SMS bundles and prepaid airtime, while more than 1000 points could see you qualify to receive a cellphone.
There are four options to redeem your Talking Points and check your balance:
• Log in to My Vodacom or use our Vodacom App.
• Dial *111*7# from your prepaid number and select ‘Talking Points’.
• SMS ‘TP’ to 31050.
• Visit a Smartcom-owned store near you. (You must visit a store if you want to redeem your points for a device.)
There are just a few things to keep in mind, like the fact that you need to use any points earned within 18 months. You will also forfeit any unused Talking Points when you migrate to a Contract or Top Up plan.
