Want a Free iPhone From #Squarespace?
As you may have noticed, the top trending topic on Twitter (Twitter reviews) all week has been the hashtag #squarespace. Why? Because the publishing platform of the same name has been running a clever promotion where they market that they are giving away a free iPhone each day, randomly, to one person that appends the hashtag to any of their tweets.
However, there is one issue with this campaign: they aren’t really giving away a free iPhone. If you visit the site for the promotion, you’ll note that down the page, in light grey text, that the prize is actually a “$199 gift certificate to the Apple store, which may be used toward the purchase of an 8GB iPhone.”
Why is this a big deal? Because the only way to get an iPhone for $199 is if you also sign up for new service with AT&T. Otherwise, your $199 gift card will go towards the purchase of an iPhone at full retail price, which can run as high as $699 for existing AT&T customers, as we reported yesterday.
From Apple’s iPhone page: “For non-qualified customers, including existing AT&T customers who want to upgrade from another phone or replace an iPhone 3G, the price with a new two-year agreement is $499 (8GB), $599 (16GB), or $699 (32GB).”
