The Belgian virtual operator Mobile Vikings begin a savings program that allows customers of the provider points to the value of a euro can earn through purchases from online shops and regular stores. In theory, customers can save by reducing their bill to 0 euros.

Mobile Vikings That says Frank Bekkers, CEO of Vikingco, the company behind the brand Mobile Vikings, De Tijd. Customers of Mobile Vikings could save all items by letting others go to the virtual provider, but the company wants to expand savings possibilities considerably. For example, collect customers through the savings plan called Viking points by making purchases at various stores. Among other parties join the Cool Blue, Uber and Zalando.
