April 1 was no ‘April Fools’ Day’ for Digicel customers who cashed in on $200 free mobile credit with the relaunch of the company’s First Top Up of the Month bonus credit offer.

The promotion, which runs until April 7, will see Digicel’s Prepaid customers automatically receiving $200 free credit on any top up valued at $200 or more.

For the skeptics, Digicel posted a number of credit vouchers on its Twitter and Instagram pages for them to add to their accounts and receive the bonus as proof that the offer was authentic.

One @ryssa_don tweeted: “Wanna believe but its April Fool’s Day and I have trust issues”. She put her own issues to rest when she later tweeted a screenshot of her bonus confirmation text message and said: “Dear Digicel, April feels a lil less scary with you here.”

By then, other Digicel customers were chiming in with comments like: “Great move”, “super network provider” and “that’s why I will never switch”, after they too had successfully topped-up and received the automatic $200 bonus credit.

Public Relations and Communications Manager at Digicel, Elon Parkinson, told Loop News that the offer comes at a time when customers need it the most: “Right now, everyone wants to stay safe and connected while maintaining social distance. This is why it was so important for us to deliver on our #ThereForYou pledge to our customers by ensuring that they get this extra credit boost to stay connected for longer and be able to check in with friends and family, and get all of the latest health emergency updates.”

Customers whose top ups go towards repaying a DigiLoan will only benefit from the $200 bonus credit offer provided that the balance of their top up after repayment exceeds $200.
