Just received a newsletter from firstname.lastname@example.org about “Introducing Palm Treo 750v from Vodafone”, Treo750v is now selling unlock at HK SmarTone Vodafone at HK$5980.
Actually unlock Treo750 was selling on street for the same price for almost few weeks already (with gift packs like SD card, headset etc), so what makes this $5980 offer so “special”?
And a so call HK$1300 special rebate is even more of a joke, user must subscribe 15 month to either one of the following service:
$128 or above SmarTone iN! on 3G price plan + $198 or above Vodafone Business Email plan / $188 or above 3G data plan
$198 or above Vodafone Business Email plan + $188 or above 3G data plan
So lets do the lowest count, HK$128 (Base Fee) + HK$10 (Admin fee) + HK$188 (3G data) * 15 month = HK$4890, then you get 1200 mins airtime, 100MB of data a month, and the so call HK$1300 rebate….
Yeah, what a great deal, for SmarTone Vodafone right?
Oh yes, it must be a careless typo mistake, click on the enlarge image, you see the Special Price: $5,680.00^ tag, where ^ means the HK$1300 rebate, shouldn’t it means by HK$4680? (Well still….that offer, come on!)
