The talking points were redeemable and you could redeem great prizes such as cellphones, tablets, data and SMS bundles.

“After a successful run of 13 years, Talking Points will be coming to an end on the 31st of May 2020. Please dial *135# to redeem your Talking Points before the closing date to avoid losing them.” writes Vodacom.
