Hyderabad: Continuing onion price hike has made the vegetable more precious than a trip to goa, an iPhone and an e-bike.
An online bus-ticketing company has made an interesting offer by introducing a scheme where customers booking tickets on their site can win one of the four things — an all-expense paid trip to Goa, an iPhone, an e-bike or 3kg onions.
According to the company, interestingly majority of the customers placed their bets on onions.
TOI quoted Rohit Sharma, chief operating officer of the company as saying, “Over 54% have opted for onions as their prize, ever since the offer was up on December 10 while the Goa option was opted for by 46%. Before this, whenever the company ran an offer that had Goa trip as a win option, it always trumped all other prizes on offer. But this is the first-time consumers relegated Goa to the second spot.”
Abhijit Limaye, a customer who applied for the offer tweeted: “Thank you! I have never won a lottery. Hope you make my luck this time with onions!”
The company will deliver 3kg onions to the homes of 20 lucky winners everyday.
