I was lucky enough to enjoy Flex for free for the past two months thanks to Safaricom and their generosity. I was on the monthly FLEX bundle that costs Ksh. 2500.
To the surprise of everyone, Safaricom doubled last months FLEX units from the usual 3500 units to 7000 units as an offer to appreciate early adopters. Like what!
There’s no joy like browsing on mobile data and calling everyone without a care. Little did I know that there’s nothing that comes free.
On 25 May, 2017, my FLEX units expired. I had around 500 units left but that’s not the problem. The problem was the fact that I was considering buying FLEX units because I could not imagine going back to the life of daily data bundles.
Yes, Saruni Maina, the same crusader who condemned Safaricom for pricing the FLEX units too high was now a convert.
Safaricom tricked me
They showed me what it means to live without a little care in the world and now my wallet was about to pay dearly for it.
Luckily, Safaricom introduced a more affordable 1000 bob FLEX bundle that I will be trying to see how long it lasts me before I decide whether its worth it to fork 2500 every month yet I have WIFI at home and at work.
