Festive fever has hit with full force and to reward you for all your Christmas spending, Eastgate Mall wants to give back to you.

This season, Eastgate Mall is the gift that keeps on giving as they give shoppers the opportunity to walk away R50 000 richer with their gift card giveaway. Spend R300 or more at the mall, pop your slip in their draw box at the customer services counter and stand a chance to win a R50 000 gift card, it’s as simple as that.

With the silly season upon us, spending R300 on almost anything from groceries to presents is quite an easy feat and definitely worth it if you could possibly walk away with an extra R50 000 in your pocket. Now you can spend your winnings on all of your heart’s desires, whether it be that “self-spoil” that you’ve been eyeing for months or even a home revamp, it’s all up to you.

With a gift card, you can now manage your spending, spend without the concern of losing cash or having it stolen. You are also able to check and manage your card balance using the whatsonmycard application, which allows you to see how much you’ve spent and how much more shopping you can do using your card. All you would need to do is to visit the whatsonmycard site, enter your card number and the security code displayed, and just like that, your card balance will be made available to you. The application is available to all Android, Apple and BlackBerry devices.

Shopping mall gift cards, like the one being given away at Eastgate Mall, are valid for three years giving you more than enough time to decide what you would spend your winnings on.

The competition is only valid for purchases made to the value of R300 or over between December, 6 and December, 22 2013 and the draw for the winner will be done next week Monday, December, 23.

whatsonmycard logoIn December last year, Tutuka extended our services to the world of Android, BlackBerry and Apple devices through the launch of our very own whatsonmycard application. This now allowed card holders to check their card balances, when they like and from the comfort of their own homes, cars, at the gym or basically anywhere they want.

Since then, the popularity of the application has grown and more and more people have recognised the benefit and usefulness of it.

In June this year, the number of users making use of the whatsonmycard application across the three different platforms reached to over 400 enquiries and a total of 1350 balance enquiries in June alone.

These growth figures are evident in the graph below, which shows growth scales from the application launch in December to June this year.
