Free Gifts With Phones A Well Entrenched & Accepted Marketing Practice Here!

Free gifts are continuing to be give away along with new mobile phones being bought. 

Christmas 2012 may be done and over with. But the number of mobile phone deals that sell the mobile phones with free gifts continue to lure in the much spoiled valued customer of mobile phone handsets. While the special Christmas offers are over, but now more standard and even new mobile phone deals flood the mobile phone market place in the UK. Here, we are not only talking about the contract mobile phone deals but the other two kinds of mobile phone deals as well. As even the SIM free mobile phone deals and the pay as you go mobile phone offers also bring with them one or the other free gifts to be given along with the new mobile phone handsets.

The practice of selling mobile phones with the added lure of free gifts is not at all new to the mobile phone market place here in the UK. On the contrary, it is now a well entrenched trend that is actually expected of the various network service providers and the dealers who are into the business of selling mobile phone handsets. On their part, the network service providers operating here – Orange, O2, 3 Mobile, T-Mobile, Talk Mobile, Vodafone and Virgin Mobile – and the dealers do their figure work rightly before deciding on giving away free gifts along with the mobile phones being purchased. 

The free gifts that normally accompany new mobile phone handsets here include – 42 inch HD LCD TV, Laptops, Notebook, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, Sony PlayStation 3, Digital Camera, Apple iPod Shuffle, Mobile Broadband Deals. Mobile phone accessories, DVD players etc.

Purely from the business perspective, it does not in the least matter to the network service providers or the dealers what exactly they are giving away as the free gift with the new mobile phones. But what does matter is where their actual returns or the bottom line stands. After the they are not doling away the freebies for celebrating any festive occasion. Rather, they are only trying to lure in more and more customers by doing so.
