[11 August 2014] Smart Communication, Inc.’s Spinnr, in partnership with MCA Music Inc., awarded three lucky winners with an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles, California for the recently-concluded Eminem and Rihanna’s “The Monster Tour” concert. The winners—Alfredo Estacio, Jr., Dawn Jalandoni, and Choi Padilla, each with a companion, left the country bringing with them their VIP tickets to the concert collaboration.

Each of the three winners were provided round-trip airfare for two, a two-night hotel accommodation with breakfast at the Holiday Inn Express in West Los Angeles, pocket money and two VIP tickets to “Monster Tour’s” Rose Bowl-LA show.


“It was a call that I did not expect at all,” told Jalandoni, a Smart postpaid subscriber who purchased the Spinnr Fly-Off Package with Unlimited Music Streaming for only Php99, good for 30 days. “It still feels unreal that I get to fly off to the US to watch the concert with my cousin. I was able to watch Rihanna’s concert here in Manila before but this one is really extra special since I will be going all the way to LA to see Rihanna and Eminem live! I am super looking forward to this experience, thanks to Spinnr,” added the loyal Smart subscriber who learned about the promo through her postpaid account.



It’s a different case for Choi Padilla, a keyboard player from Cainta, Rizal. “I learned about the promo through a friend who knows how much of an Eminem fan I am. I’ve been an Eminem fan ever since he came into the scene. I switched to Smart Prepaid and joined the contest through”



Padilla registered online only a day before the deadline expired. “Because I learned about the Fly-Off late into the promo period while our family was having a get-together for my father’s birthday, I told my dad, ‘I have to really go because I desperately need to beat the deadline and subscribe to Spinnr!’” The universe did conspire for Padilla. Now, he is bringing along his bandmate to the “Monster Tour.”



A member of musician Robin Nievera’s band, Padilla said he never realized that promos like the Spinnr Fly-Off series could really happen to fans like him until he got the call informing him of his “date” with Eminem. He raved over how Spinnr allowed him access to all the music he wanted. The fact that Spinnr is also taking him—literally and figuratively—to LA to watch a concert live is the biggest bonus he ever got.



Third winner Alfredo Estacio, Jr., who hails all the way from Tarlac City, downloaded “all the Eminem and Rihanna songs available from Spinnr” for the chance to win. He just turned that chance to reality.



Spinnr is the first homegrown Filipino music portal and mobile streaming service that enables Smart, Talk ‘N Text, and Sun Cellular subscribers to download and stream millions of songs for as low as P2.50 per day with free unlidata for Spinnr included. Spinnr was recently named “Best Content Service in Asia” at the 2014 Asia Communications Awards (ACA).



Spinnr’s Fly-Off series continues with an ongoing promo to watch Katy Perry’s Prismatic concert live in LA this coming September followed by a Miley Cyrus Fly-Off for yet another Spinnr experience.
