If anyone actually finds this deal to buy let me know. I'm looking for an affordable backup connection and this was going to be it.

On the app and USSD it's there but not for the price the website lists it?

I guess these bundle prices don't exist.

I called but they told me the reason mine is so expensive is because I don't qualify. So I asked who qualifies can't answer that. So I said then it shouldn't be listed like that on the website they didn't want to agree or disagree...

Still waiting for someone to advise where to find these bundles?

I spoke with a Vodacom representative and she confirmed that the 120GB for R349 "Pay once upfront" deal is valid for 30 days.
How the hell do you get to talk to a representative?
I've tried 082 135 but no luck.

Can anyone explain this 'Pay up front' option on their website to me? Why would I take 100Gb for R999 on a monthly recurring deal when I can pay once up front and get 120Gb for R349?

Does the 120gb bundle for R349 still exist? I'd love to get it for my Dad (provided it is not a 30 day bundle) but can't find it.

They removed it from the website after I complained. It was a pricing error.

The prepaid offerings of Vodacom seem quite terrible compared to what I get on Cell C.

I could not even find an option for any network voice bundles.

So much worse. Vodacom is milking prepaid users. The R349 for 400GB+400GB top up contract is basically prepaid so why can't prepaid clients pay that also or something similar.

My Dad was milked for thousands of Rands because he used to use his phone on data and out of bundle rates.

He's old school so never even bothered about it and after explaining, I don't think he still fully comprehends what I am saying.

I wonder how many people they scam like this.
