OnePlus Ditches Invite Requirement for OnePlus 2

4 Dec 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

No Invites Needed to Buy a OnePlus 2 After Friday.

Don’t get too excited: OnePlus isn’t ditching its invite system entirely. Just days after offering the OnePlus 2 on open sale as part of a Black Friday special, boutique smartphone maker OnePlus has announced that the phone will be sold indefinitely without the invitation requirement, starting at midnight on December 5.To celebrate the relatively brand new OEMs 2nd anniversary, OnePlus is bringing a lot of great offers for its already existing customer base and also to entice others who are pretty curious about the brand. Coinciding with the OPPO spinoff’s second anniversary, the elimination of invitations for its flagship device is a somewhat seminal moment for the company, whose solution to inventory management has drawn the ire of many a smartphone enthusiast eager to purchase one of its high-spec, low-cost handsets.

To get an invite, you had to sign up on the company’s website and wait, win some form of giveaway or contest on the company’s social media outlets, or know someone who already bought a OnePlus device. Starting Dec. 5, you’ll be able to buy the smartphone as soon as you want to get it—no waiting around for an invite from OnePlus or a OnePlus 2-owning friend. “The invite system has been crucial to letting us scale our operations and has given our fans a unique way to share OnePlus with the people in their lives. Invitations, however, are not gone for good: The OnePlus X, a recently introduced, even more budget-friendly model, will still require an invite for purchase. That restriction is briefly being lifted during a three-day holiday sale, from December 5 through December 7, mirroring the open sale over the Black Friday weekend. While OnePlus has made its name through its marketing gimmicks like the invite-only purchase of their devices, they’re also flexible enough to start experimenting with other distribution methods to test out the market.

Further incentive to participate in the holiday sales of OnePlus for newbies might be that new orders have a shot at getting custom mouse pads, which is neat. However, the manufacturer is planning to run a special promotion from December 5–7, which will allow you to purchase a OnePlus X without any invite whatsoever. “We will be keeping the invitation system for the foreseeable future. OnePlus reminds customers that if they want to have their devices by Christmas day or a little before that, they should order their devices and accessories by December 7. To help remind people as well, or at least those in New York City, you should probably look at the NASDAQ screen in Times Square on December 7, from 11AM-12PM as they’ll be flashing a final reminder for holiday deals.
