**What is ‘Vodacom Talking Points’?**

Vodacom Talking Points is Vodacom’s Loyalty Programme exclusively for Vodacom South Africa Prepaid customers. The Programme allows Prepaid Customers to earn points for every recharge, which can be exchanged for rewards when sufficient points have been accumulated.

Remember Vodacom prepaid airtime can be purchased online 24 hours a day at PhoneFuel. PhoneFuel sell the following Vodacom prepaid packages:

- R29 airtime voucher
- R49 SMS Voucher
- R55 airtime voucher
- R110 airtime voucher
- R275

- Points will be automatically earned on recharges and SMS bundle purchases. (See terms & conditions for recharges that are excluded from earning Points)
- 1 point will be earned for every R10 spent on a recharge. These points will be calculated by dividing the recharge amount by 10 where after the amount will be rounded to the nearest whole number.
- For example:
- A R12 recharge earns 1 point
- A R29 recharge earns 3 points
- A R55 recharge earns 6 points
- A R110 recharge earns 11 points
- A R275 recharge earns 28 points
- A R1000 recharge earned 100 points
- A R49 SMS voucher earns 5 points

- No registration is required to earn points.
- Points will accumulate for a period of 18 months. Points that are older than 18 months and that have not been exchanged for rewards will be forfeited.
- Points will be retained when changing from one prepaid price plan to another eg from Vodago to 4U; however, all accumulated points will be forfeited when converting to a contract tariff package eg Talk 100 or Family Top Up.

You have 100 SMS’s left of your Talking Points SMS bundle that expires on the 90th day being 29 October 2006. On 28 October you redeem another 150 Talking Points SMS bundle, therefore you will have 100 SMS’s from 1 August 2006 plus the 150 SMS’s redeemed on 28 October 2006. The total number of SMS’s (100 +150 = 250) will expire on 28 January 2007.

**Vodacom to Vodacom Call Discount Rewards**

- When making use of Free Change to move from 4U to Vodago, the discount will remain in place. E.g if you are on a 4U tariff plan and redeems points for a 15 % discount on 4U, and you use Free change to migrate from 4U to Vodago, you will be migrated to Vodago with a 15% discount for a remainder of the discount period, and will revert back to the standard Vodago tariff once the discount period has expired.
- If you already have an airtime discount loaded on their prepaid account you will not be permitted to exchange points for additional airtime discount until the airtime discount period of 90 days has expired.
