Courts (Fiji) Limited, in partnership with Vodafone Fiji, yesterday officially handed over the vehicle keys to the major winners of the 2013 Courts Christmas Grand Promotion.
The winners received the prize at Courts Megastore in Samabula.
Courts (Fiji) director of Marketing, Anil Senewiratne, said they had a big number of entries in their ‘Thrills on Wheels’ themed Christmas promotion.
“We believe Government positive tax policies has resulted in a gradual increase in our sales as people now have more money in their pockets to spend,” he said.
“This is now improving the living standards of Fijians and for us at Courts, our philosophy is to keep improving the living standards of all Fijians.”
Mr Senewiratne said at Courts, they have something for every segment of the society.
“We want to give our winners a life-changing experience through our rewards,” he said.
The prizes

The grand prize was a Peugot French SUV won by Sailesh Pala. Mr Pala had bought an Akita pressure cooker and walked away with the grand prize worth $94,000.
The other major prize was three Chevrolet Sonic cars.
These were each won by Nitesh Naicker of Dreketi, Aman Sami of Nadi and Simione Namua of Tailevu.
Mr Senewiratne said the Chevrolet Sonic cars were up for grabs for customers who purchased any information communication technology (ICT) products.
This was done in partnership with Vodafone Fiji.
Vodafone’s dealers manager, Avichal Prasad, on behalf of Vodafone, congratulated all the winners of the joint promotion.
“We wanted to do promotion where customers could afford to purchase the latest in mobile phones,” he said.
“By partnering with Courts, we were able to provide the opportunity to customers that could not afford the high-end devices and latest of smartphones.
“We will continue to partner with our dealers in doing promotions with big prizes”.

Winners overjoyed

Mr Namua, a welder and carpenter by profession, said he bought an Alcatel touchscreen phone worth $179 and got a shock when he was told he won a car.
“I have not told my family and it would be a surprise for them when I take the car home,” he said.
Mr Namua said the win was more special as this was the first time for him to win something.
Meanwhile, Mr Sami, who is a yard worker at KK’s Hardware, said for 13 years he had to go to work on foot.
“Finally I will no longer have to do this thanks to Courts and Vodafone,” he said.
