TORONTO, Dec. 5, 2013 /CNW/ - Ting, a division of Tucows Inc. (NYSE
MKT:TCX, TSX:TC), announced today that they will buy a hot, freshly
brewed cup of coffee for each of the 200 million AT&T and Verizon
wireless customers in the United States. To earn their cup of joe, AT&T
and Verizon customers simply need to check out how much they would save
by switching to the upstart mobile service provider.
For one week, through December 11, the overbilled and undercaffinated
can visit ting.com/coffee to participate. Participants will be asked to enter their AT&T or
Verizon wireless User ID and password to automatically calculate their
potential savings over two years based on actual recent usage and
bills. At the same time, they will be provided a unique promo code
worth $5 at any Starbucks location.
The account credentials will be discarded immediately after the
calculation is performed.
"I may have just spent my marketing budget for the next three years on
free coffee," admitted Michael Goldstein, Ting VP of Marketing. "But
people are shocked when they see how much they would save by switching
to Ting. I think it's worth the investment to get those numbers in
front of them."
Ting also wants to make sure their current customers get in on the fun.
So they are inviting all their customers to take a friend out for a
coffee (or maybe a muffin) and tell them how great Ting is. Customers
will then upload their receipt to get up to $10 credited to their Ting
Ting has no contracts, no overage penalties and no hidden fees. Minutes,
megabytes and messages are each billed separately and customers only
pay for the usage levels they actually hit. Businesses and families can
have unlimited devices on one account and share usage for even greater
savings. Active devices on an account cost just $6 per month. Ting
offers a clear, usable website and smart, accessible people that are
empowered to solve problems. Ting's wireless network services are
provided on the Nationwide Sprint Network.
