Apple Getting Desperate : How Australian Citizens Are Getting The Brand New iPhone 6S For Only $1

iPhone 6S Giveaway

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 250 brand new 64 GB iPhone 6S’s to Australian citizens for $1. Yes you read that right- one australian dollar.

As part of a special holiday promotion, Apple is working with its trusted distribution partner, Skillgamee 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 iPhone 6S to people and converting them into repeat Apple customers who will spread the word to their friends.”

Sounds too good to be true? That’s what 29 year-old Sophie Davies of Adelaide thought too. She decided to give it a shot and received her $1 iPhone 6S in the mail a couple of days later.

Sophie explains, “At first, I thought this was just another internet scam, but then I did some research and saw that Skillgamee is a legitimate promotions company and Apple partner. I decided to risk the $1. It’s less than the price of a cup of 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.

Here’s how to claim your iPhone 6S for $1:

1. Simply visit the official $1 iPhone 6S promotion here

2. Fill out your email address and pay $1

During this special promotion, you’ll also receive a $20 gift card to JB Hi-Fi, Australia’s largest home entertainment retailer. Your gift card will be delivered immediately (they even cover the delivery fee), and you’ll receive it in 3-5 days.

So you can get an iPhone 6S for incredibly cheap. But is the new iPhone 6S really the best smartphone on the market?

Our review department compared the iPhone 6S to previous-gen Apple iPhones and Android phones and this is what we concluded: the iPhone 6S ranks #1 in call quality, battery life, screen resolution, speed and message delivery.

In short, it’s the best, most reliable phone currently on the market. Combined with the fact you can get one for only $1, the choice is a no brainer.

    @Cooper- stupid or not, I just got an iPhone 6S plus for $1 lol. This is amazing. Finally a reason to like Apple
  • Cooper Wilson

    This is the stupidest “marketing” scheme ever. I really thought Apple would be smarter than this. This is not going to help them recapture their market share. They are losing to Android and theres not much they can do about it. This seems like a really desperate attempt to capture just a few new users, and cheapens their product significantly.
  • Grace Davis

    Just ordered mine. Only 43 left, so hurry up guys!
  • Ellie Green

    My friend told me about this the other day and I thought he was joking. Can’t believe this is actually true. I’m going to give this a shot

    I havn’t signed up for this yet, but I’m familar with Skillgamee because my cousin works for them. Last year, they did a PS4 giveaway and over 2 thousand people got free playstations. When it caught on with news sites, everyone and their mums ordered one and it was pretty much over. Take advantage while you still can!

    Ah yes I heard of Skillgamee before. They did an Android tablet giveaway a while back and I got one for $1 (shame on them for promoting both Apple AND Android lol
