Here’s what you need to know

So one lucky cus­tomer will win an air­plane by spend­ing as lit­tle as R25 in a pro­mo­tion be­ing r un by telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions gi­ant MTN. Once you’ve won the Sling 4 val­ued at R1.7m though, you’ll have to cough up some more.

Fin­week spoke to The Air­plane Fac­tory, the man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pany that builds these planes, about how much own­er­ship of the four-seater Sling 4 will set you back. If you hadn’t no­ticed the fine print in the pro­mo­tion’s Terms and Con­di­tions dis­claimer, there are a num­ber of ex­clu­sions as part of the win­ning prize of the com­pe­ti­tion, but we high­light only a few in the ta­ble to the right.

If these fig­ures ap­pear rather blood- cur­dling, you can just cash out the R1.7m that the plane is worth, “sub­ject to the reg­u­la­tions set out by reg­u­la­tory bod­ies in­clud- ing the SA Rev­enue Ser­vices,” says Larry An­nettes, MTN chief mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer.
