Lucky PLDT subscribers receive cash prize via Pay To Win promo

It certainly pays to have a good PLDT bill payment habit.

In the tradition of rewarding and recognizing subscribers for their loyalty, PLDT HOME recently awarded the first winners of the first ever Pay To Win raffle promo.

Under Pay To Win, subscribers who pay in full and on time are entitled to entries to a raffle draw wherein a grand prize winner receives P100,000, tax-free, via Smart Money and 25 winners will get P1,500 worth of PDLT credit vouchers. A special version of the promo specifically for PLDT HOME Ultera subscribers will award one grand prize winner with P50,000, tax-free, also via Smart Money, and 25 winners of credit vouchers worth P1,000 each.

The first batch of lucky subscribers was awarded last July, and they are Cecilia Valencia of Angat, Bulacan and Fe Cuison of Kalinga-Apayao.

Cecilia Valencia winner of the P100,000 grand prize

Valencia, who won the P100,000 grand prize, is a PLDT subscriber since 2012. A retiree and a widow, she uses her PLDT HOME DSL and Telpad services to get in touch with her two sons who reside abroad. Her other son’s buy and sell business online has also grown exponentially with the help of their reliable DSL connection.

Fe Cuison winner of P50,000 prize

For her part, Cuison considers the P50,000 cash prize as a gift from her deceased husband, Pedro, who passed away in 2012, and under whose name their PLDT subscription is registered.

As a widow, PLDT HOME Ultera’s strong and consistent Internet connection keeps Cuison connected to her sons who live and work abroad. This has been her main motivation for ensuring that her PLDT bill is always paid in full and on time. She now plans to use her cash prize for her buy and sell business and for the purchase of a new television set for her other son.

In addition to Valencia and Cuison, 50 lucky subscribers also won PLDT credit vouchers.

“We are happy to be able to conduct this exciting activity for our subscribers,” PLDT VP and HOME SSC and Retention Management Head Paolo Lopez said. “The winners of our Pay To Win raffle promo are truly deserving of these rewards, and we hope that these prizes will benefit their lifestyles in some way. This is only the first among more raffle promos to come.”

“Giving back to our loyal subscribers is an important aspect of the PLDT culture,” PLDT VP and HOME Marketing Head Gary Dujali said. “Pay To Win is only one aspect of a more comprehensive loyalty program that we want to roll out, as a way to thank our millions of subscribers who are at the core of our business.”
