What deals are on offer?
Vodafone groups the different types of deals available for customers under Vodafone Rewards into three broad categories:
- Presales and events
- Offers and competitions
As new movies hit cinemas, and upcoming events get slotted into the calendar, it’s worthwhile keeping an eye on the ongoing range of deals that Vodafone Rewards has on offer.
Under Vodafone Rewards, prices for movie tickets start from $11 to see a movie any day of the week. It’s $14 on Friday and Saturday nights after 5pm and public holidays (a $1 booking fee applies).
Further information on available titles and participating cinemas can be accessed via the Vodafone website and app. Customers need to purchase their tickets via My Vodafone.
Presales and events
This category is focused on upcoming events, providing customers early access to tickets to a range of concerts, festivals and other live events. Of course, as new events are announced, new deals are unveiled.
Offers and competitions
Encompasses different types of offers, such as two-for-one tickets, and a range of competitions. For instance, towards the end of last year, Vodafone entered a partnership with online shopping platform TheMarket, which gave customers a free subscription to TheMarket Club.

How Vodafone Rewards compares to Spark Music?
Of course, mobile and broadband providers often offer customers a range of extras, designed to complement their plans. These include offers such as sign-up incentives, bundle deals, bonus data, and music and video subscriptions.
Among comparable loyalty programs to Vodafone Rewards is Spark’s Spark Music. Spark Music is only open to Spark customers, and offers exclusive access to presale tickets, and the opportunity to enter competitions for a range of different events. It’s designed to compliment the free/discounted Spotify deals that accompany some of Spark’s mobile plans, and to appeal to music fans.
In addition, customers can sign up for a chance to get on the guest list at S @ Spark Arena. This is an exclusive hospitality suite for Spark customers at Spark Arena, in Auckland, which hosts a diverse range of events, from concerts to family shows.
You can get information on upcoming events by following Spark on Facebook and Instagram, or listening to Spark Weekly Radio on Spotify. Further information on Spark Music can be found here.
Loyalty programs: what to keep in mind
While loyalty programs do provide extra benefits, they are far from freebies. For there are usually hidden costs involved, which are passed along to consumers as increased prices. As such, it’s always worth considering if the loyalty program on offer is really worth it. Will you make use of it and will it save you money in the long run?
When considering mobile phone plans, shop around to see if there’s a better deal on offer. For example, check-out what no-frills providers such as Skinny or 2degrees are offering. Always consider the real value being delivered, whether you’re interested in mobile phone rewards plans, electricity providers’ loyalty programs, or those offered by petrol retailers.
