On Wednesday, 18 November, Pick n Pay launched PnP Mobile – the country’s newest Mobile Virtual Network Operator…

It will use MTN’s mobile network infrastructure for prepaid, SIM-based access to services including airtime, data, and SMS. If you’re a Smart Shopper customer, you can earn up to 2.5 2.5GB in free data rewards each month.

What are the PnP mobile rates, and how do the data rewards work?

Data rewards for Smart Shoppers

Smart Shoppers will earn data rewards in addition to loyalty points when shopping at any Pick n Pay store countrywide. This will include Express, Clothing, and Liquor stores.

For every R10 spent in store, customers will instantly earn 5MB in data. To qualify for this reward, customers will need to link their Smart Shopper card and top up their PnP Mobile SIM card with at least R50 over a 30-day period.

Instant data rewards will be determined by customers’ PnP Mobile spend (see the tables below)

No paperwork when signing up

It’s as easy as 1,2,3… Customers can register their new SIM card without any paperwork and within minutes through Pick n Pay’s new paperless RICA facility, expected to launch in 500 selected stores later this year.  (Get more info HERE about which stores are currently able to assist)
