Info2cell.com, a leading wireless application service provider in the Mena region, has entered into a partnership with Gillette for a promotional text messaging contest.
Buyers of Gillette’s deodorant line in the UAE will get the chance to win either a new Dodge Charger or one of 20 gift coupons from Magrabi Optical.
Shoppers can join the contest by purchasing Gillette deodorants specially marked with contest numbers and then texting the numbers to 050-1568618 via SMS.
