If you live in Australia and want the brand new iPhone 6s, then this may be the most exciting article you'll ever read.
Here's the deal: Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) is giving away brand new 64 GB iPhone 6s's to Australian citizens for $1. Yes you read that right- one dollar.
As part of a special promotion, Apple is working with its trusted distribution partner, FunkyCLock for, giving away iPhone 6s's that cost 99% off regular retail price.
Why are they offering this crazy promotion? Director of Marketing, Joel Branson explains, "Last year, Apple's Australian market share dropped to 35% and is losing to Google's Android worldwide. Apple can recapture Australian users by giving away extremely low-priced iPhones to people and converting them into repeat Apple customers who will spread the world to their friends"
Sounds too good to be true? That's what 29 year-old Richard Watkinson of Perth thought too. He decided to give it a shot and received his $1 iPhone 6s in the mail a couple of days later.
Richard explains, "At first, I thought this was just another internet scam, but then I did some research and saw that FunkyCLock is a legitmate promotions company and Apple partner. I decided to risk the $1. It's less than the cup of a coffee anyways. 3 days later, I check my mail and am delighted to see a shiny new box with an Apple logo on it."
Apparently this "practically free" promotional tactic is common practice among big companies with big marketing budgets. For instance, Burger King launched a similar campaign in 2013, giving away 20,000 free Whoppers on Facebook.
