3 Gets Festive

David Murphy

3logoviolet_1Mobile network 3 is enticing contract and pay-as-you-go and customers with special offers for the Christmas period. Customers signing up to 3s leading range of contract price plans from now will get double the number of downloads for the first three months of their contract. For example, 10 would buy 20 Barclays Premiership highlights videos; two 'Buy' games to download and keep; or four Ringtunes or Wallpapers.

The offer applies to 3s leading contract price plans, including Video, and Talk & Text 350, 700 and 1100. Every new customer will receive 10 worth of downloads for the first three months of their contract.

For pay-as-you-go customers, 3 has launched 10 and 20 all-cash vouchers to add to the 15 all-cash voucher introduced in the summer. All-cash vouchers give customers the freedom to spend the voucher on whatever they want, rather than having portions of it allocated to specific services, such as talk time, downloads or texts. The vouchers have no expiry date, but must be activated within 90 days of purchase.

New pay-as-you-go customers will receive 30 of pre-loaded credit on their handset, which they have 60 days to use. Pay-as-you-go customers who port their number to 3 will also receive a 10 top up voucher.

"3s Christmas promotions set the standard for simple, great value price plans" says 3 UK COO Gareth Jones. "Our new pay-as-you-go vouchers mean for the first time on 3, you can top up just 10, and use the all-cash value whenever you want. With double downloads were offering contract customers the best of our entertainment services when they sign up to a new contract."
