Here’s another way to get yourself a Giftmate Voucher for free. This time it is from MTV Roadies contest. Just send an SMS “ROADIES” and the “Roadie Name” to 56882 and you will be getting a free Giftmate voucher.
Roadies a reality show on MTV has come up with a contest where you need to predict who is the next person going to get voted out in the next coming episode. You need to send an SMS with the term “ROADIES” and the name of the Roadie who is going to be voted out and send that to the premium short code 56882.
Regardless of whether your voted roadie gets eliminated or not you will be getting a free Giftmate Voucher delivered to your mobile phone which you can later use to buy any products across the 3000 online shopping portals across India. The amount in which you receive the Giftmate gift voucher is not mentioned anywhere at all but heard that the gift voucher is for Rs. 200.
For the format on how to vote and other details can be got from the MTV Site.
The SMS should be sent between Saturday 9 p.m. to next Saturday 7 p.m., the time in which the episode starts. One advice I would give is that if you don’t watch the Roadies in MTV, try to look at their website given below to look for who have already been eliminated and avoid sending that name to prevent from being not getting the free gift voucher.
The Giftmate that you receive through this offer is valid for 7 days only.
I tried to send an SMS to them but received an error message back, tried twice within a span of 8 hours but still got the same error message not sure why.
Dear subscriber, service is temporarily not available due to technical up gradation. Inconvenience is regretted. Service will be available shortly
No idea what happened, whether they had overwhelming response to it and hence stopped the offer or not, not sure. I would like if someone here had tried from today and be able to send the SMS successfully or not, kindly mention it here in the comments, so that others will know whether the issue is permanent or has been rectified or only for a specified mobile provider, etc. Each SMS costs you Rs. 3 and hence don't try to send repeat SMS to this number if you get the same error message, you might even end up spending more on the SMS than the actual value of the voucher. Play it safe here.
All the other terms and conditions apply for this offer too, i.e., you cannot transfer this gift voucher to anyone else, it cannot be exchanged for cash, and only one voucher will be sent per mobile number.
