Mini draws have been going on throughout the promotion period and hundreds of winners from all over the country have already won cash prizes and smart phones. The dates for dropping off coupons have since passed but if you took part, it is not the end as such for you. There are still 10 pickups to be won, as well as 6 months newspaper subscriptions for 20 lucky winners so keep your fingers crossed and your eyes open for that.
The lucky winners of these prizes will be announced in their regions and presented with their grand prizes in a grand draw on 26th September, 2014. The draws will be open to the public and they will get to witness and participate. They also stand a chance to walk away with merchandise.

The pick-ups in question are Nissan NP200. Sleek and stylish but also possessing the no nonsense attitude characteristic of the workhorse that is a pickup, these cars will take you anywhere from the farm to a night out on the town. Other than being pickups already and therefore having large space at the back, they also feature enough internal storage on the inside to fit your packing for a trip out of town. The cars are air conditioned, and also feature audio system, central locking and power steering.
“The anti-lock braking system should keep you safe on slippery roads. If you do encounter an accident, the crumple zones are designed to keep the driver safe. Besides, the impact-absorbent materials underfoot in the dashboard and doors could well keep you out of hospital” Source.
Beware of fraud callers. The legitimate numbers from which lucky winners will be called are as follows:
