AUGUST - SEPTEMBER 2018
 



 
 
Dear {Title} {Initials} {Lastname}

August marks a very important day of observation. Women’s Day on 9 August is more than just a day-off. It is a public holiday that recognises the key role that women have played in our society throughout history, as nurturers, inventors, leaders and so much more. Women give the world a foundation and inject strength that we depend on. The African proverb reads, “If you educate a man you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman you educate a generation.

As per our customary annual celebrations, please join the conversation on 9 August by quoting words of inspirational women and #Voyager #SAA on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram to stand a chance of winning one million Voyager Miles in a lucky draw. The South African Rand value to spend one million miles on SAA equals R80 000 (every Mile is worth 8 cents), spend on Mango equals R75 000 (every mile is worth 7,5 cents), spend on other airlines equals R60 000 (every Mile is worth 6 cents) and lastly, on non-airline Voyager partners, it is worth R40 000 (every mile is worth 4 cents).

Warm regards


SAA Voyager Team
Forever part of your journey!
Apply for your SAA Voyager Credit Card and get double Miles for the first month for all your purchases. No other card earns you Voyager Miles faster. To apply go to Nedbank.co.za/saa.
