MAREEBA and Dimbulah locals have hit the jackpot over a recent competition, with customers winning an airfryer and a 1 carat diamond ring as a part of Nextra’s Australia Wide promotion.

Lynette Ball and Anita Calgaro both went into Nextra Mareeba News for their regular purchases and entered the competitions not knowing that they would be taking home a diamond and an airfryer. 

Business owner of Nextra Mareeba News Mary Graham said the competitions were simple and easy to enter. 

“It's great to be able to run a competition that involves the public and it's fabulous to have two locals win,” she said.

“The diamond rings competition was Australia wide, where a customer could purchase any card and go into the draw. 

“The other competition (the airfryer competition) was state-wide where you scanned your Nextra card and you automatically went into the draw.”

Diamond ring winner Ms Calgaro, who won the ring a few days off from her birthday, said she had completely forgotten about the competition. 

“I was surprised when I got the phone call from Nextra Brisbane to tell me that I had won a diamond ring as I had totally forgotten that I had an entry in this draw,” she said.

“I am very thankful they encouraged me to put my name into it.” 

Airfryer winner, Ms Ball from Dimbulah, said she was shocked to receive the news that she won the airfryer. 

“I went in to put in my lotto as usual and I scanned my Nextra rewards card like I usually do,” she said. 

“It was a big surprise as I don’t usually win many things and I didn’t really know it entered me in. 

“I was away in Townsville and I got the call that I won something and got very excited.”

Both ladies have received their gifts.
