Quotes from winners:

Adnan bin Othman – 48 (Canteen Operator)

This is the first time in my life that I have participated in any type of contest. I am extremely happy, as I wasn’t confident that I could complete all challenges. When I got the first call from Digi, I was surprised and the Digi customer service in Malacca encouraged me to participate. Being a Digi customer and having 2 Digi lines paid off as I won a brand new Ford Ranger. I never expected it to be this easy to just reload and win a car.

Senthilvasan Muthan – 34 (IT Assistant Manager)

Being an avid fan of treasure hunt challenges, I jumped at the opportunity when my sister asked me to represent her at Digi’s Reload & Win Finale. Though the challenges were cross of easy and difficult, I wanted to complete it for my sister who has been a faithful Digi customer for 5 years. Now that I have won the Ford Ranger, I will give it to her as it feels like the right thing to do, inspired with the idea of giving back.
