Safaricom customers will now be able to purchase LG electronics using Bonga points. This development was announced today after LG revealed a partnership with the telco. Purchases made using this model will see customers access appliances and electronics with up to 7 percent off.
According to LG, the move aims to ensure customers receive quality products, upgrade their homes to smart homes using smart appliances with ease and live the better life they deserve. The discounted products will be available across all LG-Opalnet branded shops across the country.
Safaricom subscribers can access LG TVs, Washing Machines, Refrigerators, dishwashers, microwave ovens, audio and more at discounted prices using Bonga points. Bonga points will be equated to money whereas 5 Bonga points will be equivalent to KES 1.00. Customers can use full Bonga points or ask the LG merchant to use part cash and part Bonga when doing the redemption.
The discounts can be accessed by dialing *126# or the Safaricom app. Customers will then redeem the deal they would want and confirm the redemption. The customer will then get a voucher code that will be used to redeem the offer. The customer will then give the merchant the voucher code and enjoy the discount as they make their payment using Bonga points.
Other than Safaricom, LG Electronics has also made it possible for customers to access products with discounted prices via Aspira, a product financing firm. The partnership offers a credit facility of up to 12 months of interest repayment.
Once transacted, customers will receive approval and access to their products of choice within 48 hours.
“We are very proud to be partnering with leading telcos in the country. Joining hands with Safaricom will bring value to our customers and is in line with our continuous efforts to develop new innovations and provide products that help them live better. This partnership further serves as a keystone for future strategic partnerships with LG to create value and impact opportunities,” said LG Electronics East Africa Managing Director Sa Nyoung Kim.
