If you follow the OnePlus One, you’d be aware of the heavily criticized invite system which restricted the sale of the handset to only those with an invite. OnePlus now wants to make your lives a lot easier by offering one of the 2,500 free invites up for grabs in a new contest. OnePlus is rightly calling this the “Storm of Invites” given the sheer amount of invites being given away. And fortunately this time, users don’t have to worry about smashing their old phones in return for an invite, but will have to spread the word about the smartphone via social media.
Users will have to like the OnePlus Facebook page, follow the company on Instagram, post a tweet about this giveaway promotion, join their mailing list and even post about it on the OnePlus forums to stand a chance to win. The grand prize will be a 64GB Sandstone Black variant of the OnePlus One, while others can win themselves an invite with over 2,500 lucky customers to be picked. The invites given out will also be for the 64GB model, so you’re not in luck if you wanted the 32GB version.
This is a good promotion to kick things off again after the short delay caused due to a software glitch. Once the invites phase has passed, customers will be able to get the smartphone directly from OnePlus albeit for a slightly increased price. The company gave us indications of that as it started selling the 16GB Silk White variant of the smartphone via Oppo’s online store yesterday.
