Faafetai Tele Lava Vodafone, this voucher will go a long way. We’ve been in need of maintaining & upgrading our home, but have never had the extra funds to do so.


A mother from Salamumu is the blessed $10,000 tala winner of the Vodafone – SMI Hardware Home Renovation Promotion winner, who will be able to use her prize to help extend her family home and purchase other much needed home appliances.

Salome Matua says her family have wanted a home upgrade for so long, and the Vodafone-SMI promotion has come just in time, just before the rainy season.

“Faafetai Tele Lava Vodafone, this voucher will go a long way. We’ve been in need of maintaining & upgrading our home, but have never had the extra funds to do so. I appreciate all that you do within our communities and encourage others to make the switch today, too”, said Mrs Matua.

Vodafone, in partnership with SMI Hardware offered a Home Renovation Promotion that helped 10 lucky families to touch up their homes with beautiful carpets, bathroom tiles, high-tech appliances and more, without breaking their budget

The promotion started a few days before Mother’s Day on May the 5th with a duration of 10 weeks. The Home Renovation Promotion consisted of 9 x $5,000 tala home renovation vouchers, won on a weekly basis plus the grand prize of 1 x $10,000 tala won on the final week. To have entered the draw, Vodafone / SMI customers only needed to do just one of the following three things:

Top Up $10 or more
Spend $50 or more at SMI
Buy any handset / device from Vodafone

Vodafone CEO Nofoasaefa Satish Sharma said this was their way of responding to the difficult living conditions that they have seen featured in the daily newspaper.

“To help, our team worked hard to put together a Home Renovation promotion to provide our customers an opportunity of a lifetime. The Home Renovation promotion is valued at a total of $55,000 tala, split between 10 winners.” says Nofoasaefa.

On the 30th July 2021, Vodafone presented the final grand prize of $10,000 via a competition where 5 contestants had to vie for the lucky pouch that held the $10,000 tala voucher won by Mrs Matua.

The other contestants who did not win, were still able to walk away with a handset and merchandise.

Vodafone’s CEO Nofoasaefa Satish Sharma reiterated how family values are important to Vodafone, hence they swayed from the usual vehicle prizes to another first in Samoa being Home Renovation Vouchers to help families build the comfortable home of their dreams.

“We encourage more families to switch to Vodafone & enjoy the benefits we have to offer; affordable data plans, the widest network in Samoa with over 100 Towers and more meaningful promotional giveaways which benefits the entire family. Congratulations to all who participated. If you’ve missed a chance to win, try again for our Father’s Day Promotion where we are offering 11 lucky Dads a chance to win prizes such as Resort Getaways, Brush Cutters, Lawn Mowers, BBQ Sets and so much more, every week for 5 weeks. That’s 55 lucky winners!” Concluded Nofoasaefa Satish Sharma Vodafone CEO.
