The competition is closed, and the lucky winner of the luxury staycation courtesy of AfriStay and 1-grid is Marianne Greyvensteyn.

As the year comes to a close, most people experience end-of-year fatigue. The fatigue can cause you to struggle with concentration, and getting out of bed in the morning. Amplify this end-of-year fatigue with all the events that happened in 2020, and it’s safe to say, you need a break. A vacation would not be a bad thing right now.

1-grid has partnered with Afristay to host a competition that will see one lucky 1-grid customer going on their dream vacation to the value of R5000! All you have to do to enter is switch your payment method to a debit order, and you’ll automatically enter. This one is unfortunately for existing 1-grid customers only, and the winner gets announced at the end of October.

Debit orders are the way to go because it’s a convenient option and you don’t need to remember to make the payment as it comes off your account automatically. Plus, you can avoid suspension due to late payments.

Here’s how you can enter:
