Verve Good Life Promo: Rewarding Loyalty ~Omonaijablog


This year has been a rollercoaster for Nigerians. The year was full of promise in January, then the economy suffered a twin misfortune of falling oil price and the novel coronavirus pandemic, which forced a complete lock down of economic and social activities for months. As lock down was eased and the economy struggled to rally, another shock, in the form of protests, struck.  

Not surprisingly, the country has slipped into its second recession in five years. The National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, showed that GDP in Q2 and Q3 were negative.  The hardship on the populace has been tangible. Inflation continues to erode peoples purchasing power while unemployment remains high.  

As Nigerians come to terms with the economic realities, there are fewer and fewer reasons to improve the standard of living. The government is doing everything within its capacity to get the country out of recession. Government announced it plans to create more jobs, invest heavily in infrastructures such as roads, rails, and bridges, and provide grants for the vulnerable in the society, among many other measures it is putting in place. However, financial experts have called on brands to exploit opportunities to bring succour to the common man.  

The private sector picked up the challenge and has continued to pitch in to help reduce the economic burden on Nigerians. Organisations have instituted different schemes to help put money in peoples pockets, particularly as the festive season draws closer. Brands have been rewarding loyalty by giving back to customers through promos. 

Brands in telecommunications, entertainment, fintech, among others, have various reward scheme currently running. Verve International, for instance, has shown determination to put smiles on peoples faces this season through its Good Life promo. The Verve Good Life promo was launched in September to reward new and existing customers.

With the Verve Good Life promo, Verve is reassuring its cardholders that it understands their peculiarity and is responsive enough to help lessen their struggles. Since the unveiling of the promo, several cardholders nationwide have won different monetary prizes and airtime from the over N27 million prize pot.

She said she was overwhelmed with joy when she learnt that she won N10,000 cash prize in the weekly raffle draw.
