I was reading the feeds (RSS) from Globe and I saw their eye catching offers like the Nokia Lumia 800 at Plan 999. ”Get this Windows phone for only P1,386/month at Unli Surf Combo Plan 999! Comes with unlimited mobile surfing and your chosen freebie!”
So, I initially thought that you’ll only have to pay Php 1,386/month. But noooope.
After reading the details, you’ll pay Php 1,386 + the Plan amount which is Php 999. That’s a total of Php 2,385.
I suggest they put: “Nokia Lumia 800 for only Php 2,385/month.” Same with the other offers. Imagine, paying only Php408.00/month for a Samsung Galaxy Note? I would get one!
I don’t think this is a form of “False Advertising”. It just needs to be more clear for the consumers.
