MTN today announced the introduction of three offerings to its mobile device insurance range aimed at offering consumers more affordable options for protecting their devices in these tough economic times.
Customers can now opt for exclusive cover of screen repair only, from as little as R17 pm, or accident only cover, starting at R21 pm, or theft and loss cover only, starting at R24 pm.
“South Africans are facing financial hardship and while this is not a revolutionary offer it does offer our customers the flexibility to choose the cover that best suits their needs at a far more affordable price,” explains MTN SA’s Chief of Mobile Financial Services, Felix Kamenga.
“Costs of new devices increase every year and repair costs can run into thousands. It is always advisable to insure your device to protect your investment and to get you back up and running as quickly as possible on SA’s best network.
“These offers are aimed at significantly lowering the cost of insuring devices as customers won’t be obligated to cover for all risks in just one monthly premium,” he adds.
MTN’s mobile device insurance is available for all devices including tablets, laptops and smartwatches at an MTN store or online channel.
Customers who have recently upgraded or purchased a device can still apply for this insurance provided the transaction was no more than 30 days ago and the device has not been damaged. Customers can apply for the new device insurance options online at www.mtn.za or in store.
