Greystone Trading 1590 CC (“the Promoter”, “we”, “our” or “us”) is a supplier of content (“content”) such as ringtones, pictures and information to consumers (the “consumer” or “you”) on their mobile phones. The content is able to be purchased by Vodacom, MTN and Cell C (not 8ta) (the “Network/s”) contract and prepaid subscribers in South Africa (the “services”).
  2. You must be 18 years or older to purchase content and to be eligible to win a prize in the Promotional Competitions (the “Competitions”) and you must have the account holder’s permission to use these services.
  3. Our Competitions comply with section 36 of the Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008 (“CPA”) and are open to all South African residents, subject to the restrictions indicated in these Competition Rules (the “Rules”). Changes to circumstances (such as changes to the CPA) may mean that we need to change these Rules. If possible we will let you know well before we do this, but as we have so many Competitions this may not be possible. Please check these Rules from time to time to see if there are any changes. 
  4. There is no fee for entry into the Competitions but normal Network charges may apply when you send messages to us. Please remember that there are fees due for the content items you request (but not to enter the Competitions aside from the Network fees which are always below R1.50) and these fees can be found in our terms and conditions of service.


  1. Prizes are in the form of airtime, cash or a physical prize depending on the Competition.
  2. Airtime Prizes: All winners of airtime prizes will be supplied with a prepaid airtime voucher via SMS for the Network that they are on (please remember that 8ta is not included). If you are a prepaid subscriber to a Network then you can use this airtime or you can sell it or send it to a friend by forwarding the SMS to them. If you are a contract subscriber to a Network you will not be able to redeem the airtime but you can still sell / give the airtime another person by sending the SMS to them. You are entitled to demand that we provide you with proof that we sent the airtime to you. The different types of airtime prizes that can be won are:

  5. How Prizes are Awarded

  6. There are three different types of Competitions that we run:
    1. Airtime Competition: You are automatically entered into this Competition when purchasing an item of content and stand a random chance to win the prizes indicated in the individual Competitions based on the timing of the purchase of the content item. There is no limit to the number of entries to this Competition.
    2. Cash Competition: You are automatically entered into this Competition when purchasing an item of content but you may only enter the competition once. The purchaser of the most content items in a particular space of time (the time is indicated on our website) wins a cash prize.
    3. Ad Hoc Competition: There are various competitions that are offered on an irregular basis and have a physical prize that is won. The actual prize is indicated to you by SMS and the action that you need to take to win the prize is also contained in that SMS.
  7. The CPA requires that you provide us with your name and identity number before we can provide you with your prize.
  8. Winners will usually be notified by SMS within approximately 15 minutes from being selected as a winner in the Competitions, although the timing of the SMS will depend on the Networks and is out of our control.  Alternatively winners will be notified by means of a telephone call to the mobile phone number that sent in the winning entry. We will attempt to contact Competition winners during normal office hours. In the event that the prize winner is not available, a further 3 attempts will be made during normal office hours to contact the winner, if no response is received the prize will be forfeited to the next eligible participant in the Competition.
  1. Prize winners can be drawn daily, weekly or monthly depending on the promotional competition and the frequency of awarding prizes will be communicated to you in the form of a SMS and is available on our website which can be found at www.win-airtime.co.za.
  2. We run many Competitions all the time. As a result we cannot tell you the end of each Competition within these Rules or the list of prizes. However you can obtain the end date of each Competition and prizes applicable to each from our website (“website”).
  3. Unless the prize is cash, no part of a prize is exchangeable for cash nor can you exchange one prize for another. You can opt out of the competitions if you wish but we cannot understand why you would (as entry is free). If you want to opt out please reply by SMS with the words “out”. 
  4. Our Competitions are overseen by our Accountants.
  5. The judge's decision is final and no negotiations will be entered into.
