“The idea was to give back to our customers. So we had this ongoing promotion where SMART customers were able to text in and predict the winners in the World Cup competition. And so how that worked is that one point was awarded for every correct team prediction and if the person got the correct score, they were awarded three additional points for a total of four. Mister Grajales accumulated a total of one thousand two hundred and seventy points.”
