How well do you know your BestMate™?

Vodafone challenges New Zealanders to test their BestMate™ knowledge

Best friends usually know each other pretty well. But how well do they really know each other? Do they really know their mate’s childhood nickname or job title? How about whether they have a tattoo or what their favourite Kiwi food is?

To celebrate the upcoming launch of our BestMate.™ Together, wherever value offer, Vodafone is challenging New Zealanders to check out just how well their best friends know them at

Choosing from a list of multiple choice questions, users can create a personalised survey to send to their mates to test their knowledge. Answers are automatically sent back to the quiz owner, letting them see straight away how well their best friend knows them.

All participants will be entered in the draw to win a wicked prize to share with their BestMate™ – a whopping $10,000 travel prize! And, they’ll also be among the first to know the details of the BestMate.™ Together, wherever value offer in November.

BestMate.™ Together, wherever will replace Free TXT Weekends and Take10, which come to an end on 31 October.

Live stats from the quiz will also be posted online, showing who knows their friends best. Get online to now to get the ball rolling.

We’ll be announcing more about BestMate.™ Together, wherever soon, so register at now and be one of the first to know what’s new!
