The next serious tuning of the bonus program happened in April 2007, when the famous option "a month of unlimited local calls for 450 bonuses" was excluded from the program. The modernization caused a storm of indignation on specialized forums, since this option allowed to receive an additional unlimited contract on a personal account with several numbers of “heavy” contract subscribers “for free”. What people have successfully used. Whether this was the main reason for the modernization is unknown to me, our material on this can be read here.

Summary of the changes that have taken place in the bonus program:

  • Unlimited communication for bonuses has been removed from the list of "rewards".
  • It is still possible to transfer bonuses directly to a personal account on contract tariffs and impossible on the TP of the Light category.
  • For "Light" archival tariffs (including "O'LIGHT", "FIX", "Easy"), the "Happy Hours" option has appeared in the list of bonus rewards. When activating the Happy Hours package, a 50% discount from the current tariff will be provided for calls to Megafon-Moscow numbers and federal mobile numbers of the Moscow region during the next calendar month.

What happened this time? News quote:

MegaFon-Moscow Network announces the upgrade of the MegaFon-Bonus system software, which made it possible to offer subscribers a number of new services and simplify access to managing their bonus account. Now you can order rewards under the MegaFon-Bonus program catalog not only using SMS requests, but also through the Service Guide system.

This is the first major addition to the program. Indeed, until now, Light tariff subscribers could not manage their bonus account and order rewards through the Service Guide. After the modernization of the Internet account management program and its unification for contract and Light accounts, the turn came to the integration (wow, how many buzzwords I know!) MegaFon-Bonus. The control scheme has changed, the interface has become simpler, more convenient and more intuitive. The changes are not only cosmetic, the interface has additional intelligence. For example, when you click on the “Activate reward for yourself” button, the list of rewards that appears will contain only those for which we have enough funds in the bonus personal account to “purchase”.

We continue to quote the news: "... the catalog of rewards for subscribers of contract tariff plans has been replenished with packages for 50, 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 rubles." Positive? Undoubtedly! How many new rewards have appeared, just eyes run wide. Although, wait, it seems that on contractual rates, it was already possible to transfer bonuses directly to the balance? Indeed, it was possible. But - an arbitrary amount. And now you can do the same, but with virtual "bills" of a strictly defined denomination. Still positive, yes. After all, before you had to type the desired transfer amount on the keyboard, but now you just need to press one button.

Let's move on, quoting news is my favorite pastime:

The MegaFon-Bonus Program provides each subscriber with the opportunity to accumulate special bonus points simply by using their mobile phone. In order to connect to the program, it is enough to send an SMS with the text 5010 to the free number 5010. After that, for every 20 rubles spent by the subscriber on communication services, he will be awarded 1 bonus point. Accumulated points can be exchanged for discounts, for minutes of conversation and other services, or simply “returned” to your account (in this case, one bonus point is equal to one ruble).

If my memory serves me, two years ago, when the bonus program for Light tariffs was launched, all subscribers were automatically connected to MegaFon-Bonus. Actually, advertising recommendations “Check your bonus!”, “Do you have a bonus?” etc. just played out the scenario of a pleasant surprise. I watched the ad, read the news, checked the bonus account - voila! - it turns out that the reward managed to "drop" and soon it will be possible to use it. But now the bonus will not grow on its own, for this you will first have to fiddle it with a special SMS message to number 5010. I connected to MegaFon-Moscow, but did not notice the bonus option - you will continue to go without a bonus until you launch the program on your number.

Finally, the most interesting part. Judging by the additions to the interface, you and I are about to have the opportunity not only to activate rewards on our own number, but also to please our friends, relatives and acquaintances with bonus privileges. The corresponding mechanism is present and even starts. True, it does not yet allow to “transfer” part of the bonuses in the form of a reward to someone else’s account. Neither for the contract tariff, nor for Light. But it's not just that they provided this opportunity in the interface, right? Apparently, soon it will either work or disappear from the interface, the first is preferable. Moreover, if “packages of rubles” appear in the list of rewards available for activation on someone else’s number, then the bonus system will be able to at least to some extent make up for the lack of the ability to transfer money from account to account.

As for other features and options, the full (updated?) list of rewards can be found here, and we will be able to fully evaluate the functionality and performance of the updated system in August. As for the time of connection to the program, regardless of the moment of “turning on the counter”, all bonuses due for the month will be taken into account. Quote from description:

“Attention! To take part in the MegaFon-Bonus program, you need to send an SMS code 5010 to the free number 5010. You will be included in the program within 24 hours after the code is sent. Bonus points start accumulating from the month when you join the program (if you signed up in the middle of the month, then next month you will receive points for the entire previous month).

MegaFon-Moscow: bonus extension

The MegaFon-Bonus program can be safely as a category of "long-livers"; during its existence, competitors have already try out several options. The current modification of the program is already the third or fourth tuning

The first version of the bonus program was launched by MegaFon-Moscow several years ago. At first, the program operated only for contract subscribers, but in July 2006 it was once again modernized and extended to subscribers of the Light tariff plans. The advertising campaign launched on this occasion greatly amused the people of Moscow, which was worth advertising teasers with ambiguous questions “How much is your bonus?” and “Maybe your bonus is growing?”. Those who wish can read our publication on this topic here, and in the meantime we will recall the history and look at the latest achievements in plastic surgery in the field of changing the shape of this very bonus.
