Are you waiting for that elusive invite to get the OnePlus One? Well, the folks over at OnePlus have recently launched a promo called “It’s Raining Invites” and when they say raining they really do mean it. The company is not just giving one, two, three, or even a dozen but a total of 150 invites to get the chance to buy the 64GB Sandstone Black OnePlus One.
Those interested in joining this latest promo can just head out over to the promo page on the link given below. You can join the promo by logging in with your Facebook account or your email address. The promo uses the Rafflecopter system so if you are familiar with it then you’ll have to click on several options to increase your chances of scoring an invite. A maximum of 8 entries can be earned and I suggest that those joining the contest should get all 8. You get to earn two entries each for clicking on “Easy entry for all OnePlus fans on Facebook”, “Follow @oneplus on Twitter”, and “Follow OnePlus on Google+”. One entry each will be given for clicking on “Tweet about the giveaway”, and “Comment on our forums”.
As of this writing a total of 912,025 entries have already been made with 1 day and 17 hours still left before the promo ends. My guess is there could be around a million entries when this promo ends. If you get to become one of the lucky 150 individuals who will win an invite then you’ll have 24 hours to use it before it expires.
The unit up for grabs is the 64GB Sandstone Black OnePlus One that’s reportedly more popular than the 16GB variant.
