MTN sets out to #Remake2020 with two weeks of Black Friday deals

MTN is once again bringing great Black Friday value to customers this summer – but this time, its massive deals will be available for an extended period of two weeks. MTN has lined up some huge savings for new and existing customers covering prepaid, contract, enterprise/business and mobile money (MTN MoMo) products, from 20 November until 9 December 2020.

Obviously, this year is also different in that it’s a COVID-19 Black Friday. In addition to MTN wanting to give more customers more value over a longer period of time, MTN’s drive to #Remake2020 is also one of the main reasons MTN has decided to extend its Black Friday deals, and where possible, to provide its offers exclusively online.

“We understand that what people need now, perhaps more than ever before, are true money-saving bargains that could offer some relief, and a better way to stay connected to family, friends and work,” says Jacqui O’Sullivan, Executive for Corporate Affairs at MTN SA.

“While lockdown restrictions have become a bit more relaxed over the past couple of months, we still felt that it would be best to extend the shopping period to reduce the number of shoppers in stores at a given time. This is, of course, over and above continuing to ensure that all other appropriate safety measures are in place in-store to protect customers and staff during this busier-than-usual shopping period.”

The deals that customers can look out for are:

MTN MoMo deals

With mobile money proving to be a safer and more convenient way to send and receive money this year, MTN MoMo subscribers can get a 1GB Rush Hour bundle for just R1. This is a great option for subscribers wanting to get their online shopping done, or to download their favourite movie or music, in one hour. Customers can also get a massive 80% off a range of other MTN daily and weekly data bundles (as per the table below) during the Black Friday period, by dialling *151# or by using the MTN MoMo App.
