The Shoprite Group owns Checkers stores in South Africa and other countries in Southern Africa. The majority of people prefer to shop at Shoprite supermarkets rather than Checkers stores because the prices are much more affordable. If you need richer and better supplies, or a bunch of fresh goods, you will have to visit Checkers, although the prices are slightly higher.
By participating in a Shoprite Checkers competition, you can win a car, shopping vouchers or a supply of brand products from the shops. From September towards the end of the year, you can find a lot of competitions to join, including the New Year.
Besides the opportunity to win a car each year, Shoprite also runs the biggest competition of all – the “Class Of” competition where more than R5 million in school fees has already been won and shared between hundreds of learners in various schools across South Africa.
Shoprite Win a Car Competition
This is a competition that many people are looking forward to because the prize is a vehicle. It’s not only one vehicle, but 150 cars will be won by lucky participants. Various hatchback and compact models from VW, Toyota, Nissan, KIA, Honda etc are up for grabs. You may win a VW Up in one year, the following year might be a KIA Rio hatchback or Opel Corsa bakkie. There is no better way to celebrate the festive season than winning a new car.
In 2016, Shoprite had 150 VW Up hatchbacks for competition winners. The competition started on the 28th of November and culminated on 24 December. Between this period, 150 lucky winners were chosen on daily basis.
To enter the car competition, you simply have to buy items worth at least R100 from any Shoprite or Checkers supermarket. Alternatively, you can also buy any participating brand listed below. Buying items valued at R100 plus any participating product will enable you to enter the competition twice. After purchasing the items, you should write your name and cellphone number on the receipt. Drop the receipt in the competition box inside the store. Alternatively, you can enter the competition via your mobile phone. Dial the USSD code on the receipt. If you meet the requirements, you will receive an instant mobile notification advising you of a successful entry.

Imagine spending a year without worrying about school fees. You will save a lot of money and you can have peace of mind knowing that your kid will not be sent away because of non-payment.
