A young teacher from Quezon has won a brand new car in Smart’s GigaMania promo.

Ivannah Vhey Torres, a 24-year-old licensed teacher from Polillo, Quezon, woke up one day to find out that she had won a brand-new Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid — the grand prize of GigaMania.

A loyal TNT subscriber since 2018, Ivannah used the GigaLife App to register to data packages for her online teaching needs.

She started using mobile internet and the GigaLife App more frequently during the height of the pandemic to conduct her lessons and research online. She said that her go-to data package is GIGA Stories 99, which comes with a total data allowance of 16GB, valid for seven days. These transactions earned her GigaPoints, which automatically qualified as GigaMania raffle entries.

“I don’t normally join promos because I know that I’m not that lucky. So when I joined GigaMania, I really didn’t expect to win. I was just after collecting GigaPoints for the perks,” Torres said.

“So when a Smart agent called to tell me the news, I couldn’t believe it at first. I thought it might be a scam and was scared that my number might have been hacked. I had to verify it first. The brand new car is truly a big blessing for my family,” she said.

“We congratulate Ivannah and the hundreds of lucky GigaMania winners around the country! We are always grateful to our subscribers for their continued support, and this is why aside from bringing them closer to their passions through our innovative services, we also delight them with our GigaManila promo and regular treats and rewards on the GigaLife App,” said Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart.

“Being with Smart truly comes with a lot of rewarding experiences, and our subscribers can definitely expect more,” Basas added.

Aside from Ivannah, hundreds of Smart subscribers also won exciting prizes from GigaMania.

On top of the Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid, GigaMania grand raffle winners included 10 subscribers who won a premium Samsung set that included the Galaxy Flip 5G smartphone, Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Watch 4, and Galaxy Buds Pro.

Moreover, five subscribers won the coveted Apple set comprising a MacBook Air, Apple Watch SE, iPhone 12, and iPad Pro.

Smart subscribers can expect more rewarding experiences and lifestyle perks on the GigaLife App, which is downloadable on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, and Huawei Mobile Services.
