Technology lovers to strike gold with Vodafone

Technology lovers to strike gold with Vodafone

To celebrate the launch of the Samsung GALAXY S5, Vodafone today unveils the Great GALAXY Goldrush – a promotion to give away $100,000 worth of gold!

Vodafone customers buying the new Samsung GALAXY S5 can enter the draw to win $100,000 of gold. Daily prizes including Samsung GALAXY S5s, speakers and tablets are also up for grabs to Kiwis visiting the Vodafone website and entering online.

The Samsung GALAXY S5 gold variant is available only from Vodafone at launch.

Matt Williams, Vodafone Consumer Director says the rush for gold kicks off the launch of Samsung’s flagship phone.

“Anyone who purchases a Samsung GALAXY S5 from a Vodafone store or online between 11 April and 11 May 2014 can enter Vodafone’s Great GALAXY Goldrush. They register on the website, and pick a spot on the map in one of Vodafone’s 37 4G-coverage locations across New Zealand to enter the draw to win the gold. Customers can enter on a daily basis for the length of the competition.

“The 4G-capable GALAXY S5 goes on sale from today,” continues Matt. “It has a new design, improved autofocus camera and a kids’ mode so your children can use your phone without you worrying. It’s water and dust resistant and comes complete with new features including fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor.

“And the GALAXY S5 has an Ultra Power Saving Mode which turns the screen to black-and-white while cutting down on the apps available to you.”

Kiwis can get the Samsung GALAXY S5 in gold, black and white models from Vodafone for $0 on the Red $129 plan with a 24 month term (RRP $1049)*.

Notes to editors:

* Standard Samsung GALAXY S5 pricing: $0 on the Red $129 plan on a 24-month term; Business customers $0 on the $120 per month plan (excl. GST) on a 24-month term.

· To enter the $100,000 Goldrush promotion you must purchase the new Samsung GALAXY S5 from an approved Vodafone channel, and have an active Vodafone account at the time any pins are placed.

· Samsung GALAXY S5 customers will be allocated one daily gold pin to enter the draw to win the gold. An extra daily gold pin can be claimed by sharing the link on Facebook or Twitter.
