U Mobile is jumping head first into the Pokemon GO craze with its ‘Power-Up for Pokemon GO’ contest. The contest runs from 10-23 August and Pokemon hunters stand to win ten iPhone 6s smartphones, MYR42,000 worth of postpaid and prepaid credits as well as powerbanks.
The orange telco is taking a wholehearted approach to the phenomenal augmented reality game that’s taken the world by storm. It isn’t just running the contest. It’s also making sure U Mobile subscribers don’t have to worry about not having enough data to play the game.
Next, to give you a boost on your hunt, U Mobile will set up lures during the two week contest period to ensure Pokemon characters at selected Pokestops will increase. These locations will be announced to customers via social media.
Additionally, from 10 August to 10 September 2016, U Mobile subscribers will receive discounts of their Uber rides. Getting to your Pokestops or Gyms couldn’t be any cheaper.
