ANDREW Lee, a 37-year-old self-employed haulage contractor from Portmore, St Catherine, will go on a vacation for the first time in a number of years, thanks to Digicel’s ‘Get Gifted’ Christmas promotion.

"I have not been on a vacation in years," Lee exclaimed. "When you’re self-employed, a lot of times, you get so caught up in the work that you don’t have time to spend with your family and just relax. But my wife will be very happy, as this is something she has been telling me that we need to do for a while now and once she’s happy, and you know the rest."

The lucky trucker is the second weekly winner of an all-expense paid Caribbean vacation. He will travel to the Turks and Caicos Islands with his wife, Nickolae. In addition to spending five days in the country, Lee also receives US$1000 spending money, a Digicel DL 1 Plus smartphone and $5,000 credit.

CEO of Digicel Jamaica, David Butler, said: "Everyone deserves a bit of rest and relaxation, especially at the end of a busy year. So we’re very happy for Andrew and his wife, and we look forward to gifting even more customers with wonderful prizes throughout the holidays."

Digicel’s Christmas promotion, which started on November 18, will see five more weekly winners of an all-expense paid five-day trip for two to Grenada, St Lucia, Turks and Caicos Islands, St Maarten or Panama, in addition to US$1000 spending money, a DL 1 Plus smartphone and $5000 credit. The promotion will culminate on December 31, with the grand prize of a seven-day cruise to the Cayman Islands, Honduras, Belize and Mexico, plus US$1,000 spending money, a DL1 Plus smartphone and $5000 credit.

To qualify, customers can top-up with $200 or more, activate a three-day data plan or higher, pay your 4G broadband or Digicel Play bill on time and in full, talk for 10 minutes or more on your postpaid phone, or sign up for a Digicel Play package. The purchase of a phone or SIM card also gives customers a chance to win.
