A BlackBerry is supposed to be stuffy, and only good for suits â€” but luckily nobody told Globe, as the countryâ€™s leader in postpaid showed off the lighter, spunkier side of everybodyâ€™s favorite email and messaging-centric smartphone.
The BlackBerry has become the smartphone of choice for a much younger demographic, bringing carpal tunnel syndrome to an entire nation of text-and-BBM crazy teens and Globe and BlackBerry are looking to following up their massively successful Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Tour with a quadro (so I donâ€™t know what comes after trio, bite me) of awesome events designed to rein in another generation of qwerty-deprived, BBM-less masses.
With the Globe BlackBerry Bar Tour Series, subscribers who get a BlackBerry 9220 between July 2 to September 13, 2012 whether with a new line or as a re-contract (read: loyalty program freebie) will qualify for a raffle entry for a chance to win four VIP passes to the Globe BlackBerry Bar Tour, with two buckets of beer and two dishes of pica-pica for free. The soon-to-be-inebriated winners and three friends (Me! Me! I can be your friend!) can catch Pedicab and Imago at Cubao X on September 1, General Luna and Razorback at 19 East on September 7, or Sandwich and Taken by Cars at B-Side on September 22.
If your friendly neighborhood Globe Customer Service Specialist manages to upsell you to the 3G-capable BlackBerry 9320 between July 2 to November 15, again with either a new line or as a re-contract, you get entered into a SECOND raffle for the Globe BlackBerry Exclusives Karaoke Series, where eight lucky winners with four friends who may or may not be so lucky, depending on your relative level of tone-deafness, win an epic five-hour eye-watering, eardrum-shattering, dignity-crushing karaoke night with free drinks (liquid courage) and munchies (welcome distraction) at Red Box Karaoke. Hopefuls get four shots â€” the Karaoke Series runs on October 19, November 9, November 16, and November 23.
Next up, getting yourself either a BlackBerry 9220 or 9320 from July 2 to October 31 nets you a mad-sounding 100 or 200 raffle entries, respectively, for an unprecedented THIRD raffle for twelve winners to the Globe BlackBerry Concert Series, where you could win a chance to be one of three winners to go see Katy Perry on September 23 in Singapore, one of four to watch Madonna on October 11 in Los Angeles, or one of five to watch Coldplay on November 17 in Sydney, all with roundtrip airfare and swanky accommodations to come with the concert tickets for you and your BFF/significant other. To top it all off, Globe and BlackBerry will even be nice enough to be throw you an exclusive send-off party to get you good and passed-out on your 20++ hour flight to the other side of the world.
Still with us? Good.
Because if your Globe account is activated within that same period, you too can get a chance to fly off to catch the Globe BlackBerry Concert Series by earning your own raffle entries by downloading ringback tones, true tones, or full track songs from Globe, or by getting your friends to say that youâ€™re the nice person who referred them and helped some Globe Service Center hit their quota.
If youâ€™re somehow, amazingly, inexplicably still not confused, then props to you. Otherwise, text FREETRIP to 2346 for more information.
Last but definitely not the least, Globe, BlackBerry, and MYX get together all friendly-like for a FOURTH, count â€˜em, FOURTH raffle promo. What. From July 2 to September 13, get a BlackBerry 9320 with a new line with Globe or re-contract your existing one to get a raffle entry (another!) to the *MYX Fly Away promo â€” giving you the chance to win an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles to see the former object of Dennis Rodmanâ€™s affections, Madonna, on October 10**.
So just to get this straight â€” buying ONE phone could potentially enter you in up to three completely different raffle promos.
Mind. Blown.TLDR: Get either a BlackBerry Curve 9220 or a BlackBerry Curve 9320 either with a new line or by re-contracting your existing one from July 2 to November 15 and you could win for yourself and maybe a bunch of friends a BlackBerry-sponsored music-related shindig.
Subscribers can now get the BlackBerry Curve 9220 or BlackBerry Curve 9320 in Black, Pure White, or Teal Blue by visiting Globe stores nationwide, calling 730-1010 or logging on to www.globe.com.ph/BlackBerry/curve or ph.BlackBerry.com/curve.
