Just a few days ago, OnePlus announced that their most recent device, the OnePlus X is now invite free forever. They also gave free shipping for orders through their online store that are $100 and above. Now, they have announced that they are reducing the price of their current flagship, the OnePlus 2, and that includes rebates for those who recently purchased it. Plus there are other treats from their online store, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
In a blog post, the folks at OnePlus explained that the cost in the production of the OnePlus 2 has gotten lower and they are also celebrating the relative success of the device. To celebrate, they are now pricing the flagship at $349, and this price will stay forever. But if you just recently bought one, fret not. If you did it within the last 15 days, you will receive a $40 (or whatever is the equivalent in your currency) refund soon. Instructions will be sent to the email you used to register the device.
Another Valentine’s treat that you can enjoy when you shop through their online store is a free StyleSwap Cover or OnePlus X case when you buy any of their devices. It might be your first OnePlus device or you’re gifting it to a loved one. Either way, you can now purchase any of the three (OnePlus 1, OnePlus 2, OnePlus X) because they’re all invite free already.
While the invite to purchase model was able to generate interest when OnePlus first came into the market, they eventually realized that people want to be able to buy their devices whenever they want. This is probably one of the reasons why they decided to ditch that model. We’ll be able to see over the next few months if it will have a significant impact in their sales.
