Telkom Kenya and Standard Chartered Bank have inked a deal that will see their customers get access to some great services over the next couple of weeks.

Named Omoka Vinoma, the partnership will see Telkom Kenya pre-paid subscribers access 100 percent cashback on the bank’s current account transactions.

The deal has been made to offer a competitive proposition to Telkom mobile customers upon buying a preferential data bundle.

The pre-pay customer will access 30 GB of mobile data for KES 1200.

The offer will then give the customer 100 percent cashback on all transactions for a period of 3 months, when they open a Current Account from the lender.

The offer will also see them access Showmax Pro Mobile that streams live events including sports from major leagues and news.

That’s not all – the customer will also earn 4 free rides from e-taxi app Bolt for a month of up to KES 260 each.

The Bank says it will reimburse transaction costs incurred during the 3-month promotion period, which concludes on July 31.

The 30 GB bundle can be accessed from the *544# menu.

Our research on Kenyan youths reflected that most interact with and prefer using digital products and services on a daily. This has further been escalated by the rapid growth of the digital economy since the onset of the pandemic. Remote working and schooling have now become the norm and there has been a greater uptake of online shopping and entertainment. Further research has shown that most of the youth are now money conscious with many looking for ways to cut costs and save money. This bundle is our response to the need for quality Internet access and the desire to be financially prudent.
