Apple distributes iPhone 6 in United States for $1 only!

By Paul Wilkinson

If you live in the United States and want the new iPhone 6, this may be the most exciting article you’ve ever read.

Here's the deal: Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) is giving the new iPhone 6 (64 GB) to United States citizens for $1. Yes, you read that right. One dollar.

As part of a special promotion, Apple works with Lotto24 the reliable distribution partner to offer iPhone 6, at 99% off the regular retail price.

Why offer this crazy promotion?

Director of Marketing, Joel Branson says, "Last year, Apple's market presence in the US was down 35%, losing to other competitive devices such as the Samsung Note & S6. Apple believes they can regain their US following by offering an extremely low price to select people in order to convert them into loyal Apple customers." 

Sounds too good to be true? Thats what Richard Peterson, 24-year-old from Houston, thought. He changed his mind when he received his iPhone 6 by mail a few days later.

Richard explains: "At first I thought it was just another scam on the internet, but then I put in the time and research and found out that Lotto24 is a legitimate promotion company and partner of Apple. I decided to risk of a $1 was worth it. That's less than the price of a cup of coffee anyway. 3 days later, I check my mail and I was happy to see a new shiny box with an Apple logo on it ".

Apparently, this promotional tactic of "practically free" is a common practice among large companies with big marketing budgets. For example, Burger King launched a similar campaign in 2013, offering 20,000 free Whoppers on Facebook.

      This is the most stupid "marketing" plan. I really thought that Apple would be smarter than that. This will not help them regain their market share. They lose against Android and there is not much to do to it. This seems like a desperate attempt to capture some new users, and it devalues their product significantly.

    • Arthur Morel

      I just ordered mine. There are only 43, so hurry up guys!

    • Amelie Gauthier

      My friend told me the other day and I thought he was joking. I could not believe it was true. I'll try that.

      I am not yet signed up for this, but I am familiar with Lotto24 because my cousin works for them. Last year they made a gift PS4 and more than 2,000 people received free Playstations. When he took on news sites, everyone and their moms commissioned and it was pretty much over. Enjoy it while you can!

      Oh yes, I heard RadioPlanets before. They offered an Android tablet some time ago and I had a $1 (Shame on promoting both Apple and Android lol)
