South Africans are being offered more incentive to get their coronavirus vaccine now more than ever by Game stores.
As part of their Vax Appreciation Wednesdays campaign that seeks to reward shoppers for getting the jab, they will be offering 10% discounts to their shoppers, according to BizNews. The promotion will start on 18 August and end on 15 September on Wednesdays at all Game retailers countrywide.
Business Insider reports that you don't have to be fully vaccinated to qualify for the discount, however, you will need to present your vaccine card as well as your identification card or document to the teller to receive your discount. Discounts may not exceed R10 000.
Katherine Madley, Game's marketing president, says the campaign is not a means to pressurises individuals to share their vaccine status but it is to thank those that have taken the initiative to get their jabs to protect themselves and making their stores safer.

Wimpy offers free coffee to those who show proof of vaccination
In an attempt to increase the uptake of the Covid-19 vaccine, Wimpy is offering a free filter coffee to those who show proof of their vaccination.

However, there is some fine print. In order to qualify, a person needs to present their proof of vaccination within 48 hours of getting their jab.
