Greetings YEI readers

Update on DStv Premium offer to YEI members


Firstly, thank you to MultiChoice for affording You’ve Earned It the opportunity to offer our YEI members a great DStv Premium Rugby World Cup offer.  Hundreds of YEI members took up this limited offer to the DStv Premium Rugby World Cup offer.  An initial glitch on the MultiChoice side was swiftly rectified. 

Secondly, the feedback from YEI members regarding this great offer has generally been good.  However, if you are one of the few YEI members who has not yet heard from MultiChoice, we would really appreciate your contacting us asap and preferably by Friday 12 noon, 27 September, to advise us.  We will then take the issue up with MultiChoice.  Please send your mail to info@youve-earned-it.co.za and title the subject DStv Premium Rugby World Cup offer.
