Digicel is giving away 14 Minis....

Claro is giving away 9 Mercedes benz.....

Lime is giving US$1m to only person (this may be alot but not so attractive to customers because its just like Lotto)

Lime made such an effort to enter the market with somethin new and big by changin name etc., but then Digi and Claro mash dem up with this....I feel bad for dem....

1mill US boss man..... a LIME mash up them self. companies must learn to share the wealth around to their customers. Digicel n Claro is doing just that. LIME on the other Hand..... EMBARASS me to.... mi always a defend them. mi cyaan help them this time. on them own!!

sound more appealing as a customer, but if nvr had any LIME phone, my chances of winning that 1mill is 1 in say 2mill (how much ever customer they have). cos it applies to Lanline, Internet, Mobile..... Digicel easier cos is just 1 in about 200,000. or less.

2,000,000/14 how much that?

2000000/14? How'd you get that?
Digicel should have way more accounts than LIME... making the numerator larger, lowering your chances... anyhow, it's the way I look at the lottery..

I don't even really want to win the lottery for 15 million. Doesn't change your life that much. Still gotta work blah blah. 50+ mill? Now we're talking.

A mini-cooper? Blah... I mean... it's basically 'free' so I guess that's cool... but it's nothing to wet yourself about. 1 mill US now...

What lime should do is take the Damn million dollar and put it better use, like improve them infrastructure, hire some capable customer care rep. And marketing managers. At the end of the day all everybody want is good service, even though the money sounds appealing the promo is still crap them doing. I'd take the money and buy some high end phones just so i could use them on digi network. Or better yet invest it in another phone company to kick the asses off the scene

I think the point he is trying to make is...LIME's promotion falls short of being really about the customer(s)...now it's just about one customer. The odds don't look too good either.

It doesn't matter, they need to share that $77mil among their customers. You have a better chance winning big with Digi and Claro compared to LIME. This will help one person, sadly LIME won't benefit from that said person alone.

$77mil split between 77 people should have been the road to trod.

Its not actually about basic maths but the fact of the matter that he is trying to say let some more poeple benefit from it. For example why not give 77 poeple a million jamaican dollars and what are your chances of winning US$1M against, lets say 400,000 people

(know lets do the maths)

1000000 = 2.5 therefore you stand 2.5% chance of winning that
400000 million US

Not really, i think toyanucci is making a point from a '"probability" point of view. He may fail basic math but he has prob & stats pat!

It easier to win from claro or digicel than LIME if u had all 3 sim cards. Would it not be more enticing if they gave away 77 Million dollars split across 77 customers? or 100,000 to 770 customers? or 10,000 to ....boy

I think he didnt realise it was 1millionUS - 77million jamaican. Now you are right in the sense that they should have broken that down and gave away 10mJA to 7 lucky winners but either way their prize is the most of everyone.

77million JA means you can retire and live off interest alone a bank gon give u 2% and if u banking that amount into the it u might can set/negotiate your interest rate a little higher but we using 2%.

Thats $1,540,000 per month.

1 Benz - nice but u have to maintain it which means at best u might sell it

mini coop - see above

$1m from them this is also nice..........but less than the interest on LIME winnings. So all competitions are good and hopefully people win and not "workers".....extended family - u know them will make some friend win and not pay out nothing and keep it in the company.

We are already seeing that from digicel, i have never seen so many promotions from digicel in such a short time before. I think the benz i more appealing to most people just for the simple reason that you have a higher chance of winning it versus 1 million for only one person, but if anybody had to choose i am sure they would choose the million US.

Lukecon
December 9, 2008, 04:23 PM

December 9, 2008, 04:55 PM
LIME is cutting corners.
1. You have to buy a $500 worth of credit before having a chance at entering. Fair enough, its a million $US, that's enough incentive.


2. The whole caribbean is pooled into one pot; compared to the Grand prize the runner up prizes are mediocre. Very bad odds of winning.


I'm sure people will still take part in the promotion though, but entry via texting is straight up gambling. Its like paying $50 bucks for a lotto ticket. I wouldn't be surprised if LIME actually makes a huge profit on this promotion just out of that $50 text message entries. Well that's only if people decide its better to send a $50 text than buy a $500 card.

Digicel's promotion is good, excellent set of prizes. I would definitely drive that mini cooper for a year. Plus on top of that they are giving away 1 mil each week. I'll enter this one. :icon_cool

The setup for the grand draw is kind of sticky though, they are doing it like a game show, each finalist will have to pick 1 box out of ten, only 1 box will have keys to the mini. :icon_roll

Claro's prizes aren't bad either. The only problem is those Mercedes' don't come with 1 year free insurance. lol Good luck insuring that if your budget is tight. The concessionary prizes are not as good as digicel's but good enough. The easiest promotion to enter, just send a $10 text.

I wonder if old phones can bu used, I see in the terms and conditions that proof of purchase will be needed to collect a prize. Suppose I have 2 year old phone? Where will I find the invoice and receipt? :eusa_eh:

The good thing with Claro is that their customer base is small and they definitely won't be matching digicel in terms of the amount of entries so the odds will appear to be better for those who wish to enter. That $10 text makes it easy for people to enter, so I guess in the long run the odds will still be horrible.

I'm sure all promotions will be successful and of course those who don't win will be left a little bit poorer. lol Its redistribution of wealth I tell you.

Lukecon
December 9, 2008, 05:02 PM
we have to be fair because the one million US can buy the 14 minis by digicel and leave change or even buy the 9 Benz from Claro. But its messed up because the ods of winning anything are slim

wolfman
December 9, 2008, 05:06 PM
LIME is cutting corners.
[LIST]2. The entry is not automatic, you have to pay for a $50 text before you are logged as an entrant.

Everyday me learn something never really had time to read all the rules so me cant say anything thought it was automatic so my entries gone to waste :icon_evil wont be paying $50 a text hell no

silentburn
December 9, 2008, 05:27 PM
Opps I think I miss read.

On the LIME website it says there are actually 5 different ways to enter.


5 WAYS TO ENTER

* Buy one or more of the LIME Christmas service offers in store.
* Take a new LIME service or upgrade a service.**
* TopUp $500 or more on your LIME mobile (every single etopup or text topup of $500 or more gives you a chance to win)
* Text the word “win” to shortcode LIME (444 5463).***
* Pay your LIME bill in full and on time.

I'm going to go edit my previos post. Wolfman you didn't waste your 5 bills, you have been automatically entered even though you probably won't even win a weekly prize, so you still wasted your 5 bills lol

Oh and its people who win weekly prizes that have a chance at winning the 1 MIL.

Oh and its people who win weekly prizes that have a chance at winning the 1 MIL.

This is a very important point. Makes it even harder, so now you have to be double lucky. The way this set up, it's not even luck again, it is a matter of God hand selecting you for this prize. The odds of not winning are just too great!

lime made such an effort to enter the market with somethin new and big by changin name etc., but then digi and claro mash dem up with this....i feel bad for dem....

Yes 1M USD is nice if you won but large payouts tend to be over time ie 1M over 10+ years. Check the lotteries in the US and you will see what i mean. Still 100K USD a year would be nice.
