We frequently reminded each other that it was Tuesday to open the App. We also won umbrellas and discounts off our postpaid bill from using the My Digicel App.

“To my surprise, my wife called on Feb. 15 saying she won a trip for 2 to Young Island compliments Digicel. In my mind I thought she was still joking. It’s not until I saw the gift voucher that I began to take this Digicel promotion very seriously.”
The grand prizewinner further stated, “I got the feeling that questions concerning the App and Digicel would be asked, so my wife and I both pulled up the Digicel Website and did our research. When Candy Man told everyone to take out their phones, I instantly became excited.”
