U Mobile yesterday announced a partnership with Malaysia’s first bank, Standard Chartered, which will put the all-new Samsung GALAXY S5 smartphone in consumer hands for just RM555, with no upfront payment. The unprecendented deal, backed by U Mobile’s incredible postpaid plan, is aimed at the youth market.
Gracing the launch was Wong Heang Tuck, Chief Executive Officer of U Mobile, Jasmine Lee, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of U Mobile, Lai Shu Wei, Head of Brand & Marketing of Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia, Ahmad Ridzuan Samsudin, Head of Business Communications & Corporate Affairs from Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia, and Ng Loong Shyang, Vice President of IT and Mobile Communications from Samsung Malaysia Electronics.
The mind-blowing deal will give young consumers a chance to own the impressive flagship GALAXY S5 for just RM555 with no upfront payment when they sign up for a Standard Chartered JustONE Platinum MasterCard credit card.
If a credit card isn’t your fancy, you can still purchase the blazing fast GALAXY S5 for RM999, with U Mobile’s U Plus plan, to which gives you 5GB of high speed data quote, 700 minutes of free calls, 500 free SMS and #Unlimited internet roaming.
The joint promotion is a win-win for U Mobile and Standard Chartered, as both brands target the same youth segment – first jobbers, millenials, subsequently expanding business and market share.
To be eligible for the Standard Chartered JustOne Platinum MasterCard credit card, one merely needs a minimum income of RM24,000 per annum. Benefits include petrol rebates of up to RM840 per year at all petrol stations, for life. The offer is only applicable to new credit card applicants who currently do not hold any Standard Chartered Bank credit cards, or has terminated in the last six months.
The exclusive deal with Standard Chartered runs for a limited time only and will end on 30 June 2014 or while stocks last.
The mouth-watering RM999 deal with no upfront payment also extends to the GALAXY Note 3 and HTC One (M8). A very enticing offer indeed, don’t you think?
