Free is good right? Best Buy has free smart phones all through December. Honestly I can’t stand BB stores, but that’s me, many other people shop there, and if you’re one of them and you need a new phone then now is the time for you to get over there.
Best Buy Mobile, the mobile specialty retail unit of Best Buy Co. Inc , today announced that it is giving consumers another reason to celebrate – a holiday event featuring free smart phones. Every day in December, Best Buy Mobile will feature a minimum of four free smart phones (one from each carrier) in all Best Buy stores, in all Best Buy Mobile specialty stores and online at www.BestBuy.com/FreeSmartPhones.
“People want smart phones and we couldn’t think of a better way to end the year for our customers than to offer free devices every day in December.”
Based on the overwhelming success and customer feedback from the Free Phone Fridays campaign in October, Best Buy will feature FREE smart phones every day during the remainder of the holiday shopping season. Examples of smart phones featured include:
- Droid Incredible by HTC (Verizon)
- Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (AT&T)
- LG Optimus S (Sprint)
- LG Optimus T (T-Mobile)
“We were excited by the amount of consumer interest we received around our ‘Free Phone Fridays’ promotion in October, so we wanted to do it again only bigger,” said Shawn Score, president of Best Buy Mobile. “People want smart phones and we couldn’t think of a better way to end the year for our customers than to offer free devices every day in December.”
The free phones require new or upgrade activation with two-year agreement and minimum quantities will vary by store. There are no price matches and the offer is not valid on prior purchases.
Best Buy Mobile rapidly has become a leading destination for mobile technology purchases with the most smart phones under one roof, and one of the largest selections of carriers, handsets and accessories available anywhere. In addition, Best Buy Mobile offers an array of services aimed at improving the mobile phone buying experience, including:
- Upgrade Checker: A quick and easy service that gives customers the ability to see when they are eligible for their next phone upgrade. When the upgrade time is nearing, customers receive a complimentary reminder call, e-mail or text message.
- Walk Out Working™: Free in-store smart phone setup by a Best Buy Mobile Phone Specialist who will sync personal email accounts, set up Bluetooth headsets, transfer contacts and activate other services to allow the customer to leave the store with a fully functional new smart phone.
