There is always talk going around about free minutes, affordable phones, roaming packages or free internet. Competition amongst telecommunication providers leave customers in Saudi Arabia with loads of package options and regular deals they can enjoy. Below are just a few of the latest offers you can enjoy this season.

Roaming offers

Many of us have had the horrifying experience of dealing with international rooming charges especially during holiday times. However, STC has come to the rescue with their Roaming Vacation Package. Through this deal postpaid STC customers can enjoy unlimited calls when they travel abroad during official Saudi holidays for a small charge of SR 1 per day. All you have to do is send a subscription code of 6328 to 902.

For Internet Roaming packages, customers can stay online and pay an amount ranging from SR 24 to SR 250 depending on the duration of the trip and data required.

However, make sure to check if the service is available for the country you wish to travel to, the number of days the service will last and if the holiday is registered as an official holiday with STC.

Loyalty programs

Who would have thought that telecom loyalty programs can be so beneficial? For example, Mobily allows its customers to collect points through the Neqaty loyalty program. For every SR 1 spent of a phone call or SMS, customers get to collect 1Neqaty point. These points can be redeemed to get free local and international minutes, internet, SMS, and even bill discounts. Point can also be used to pay for your purchases from selected online and retail partners.

To add to that, you can avail of offers using your points. Currently you can transfer your Neqaty points to get a Cobone deal and enter a weekly draw to win an iPad mini.
