They will pay you EUR 100 to be a Tele2 customer – France

In a bid to gain market share Tele2 Mobile is offering a EUR 100 rebate to new customers to its network. To take advantage of the offer new customers will have to subscriber to one of the monthly voice packages on offer by 4th October 2009 by porting their existing number to Tele2.

SMS bundles can be added onto the voice option chosen with the SMS packages ranging from 25 SMS for EUR 2.50 to unlimited SMS for EUR 9.90. The cheapest voice plan is EUR 17 per month, which would mean just over 5 months of free calls, or 1 hour free per month for 5 months. Free handsets are also available with the plans.

Payments to the new customers will be by cheque, which will follow in the post within 5 months of porting to Tele2. In the UK the cheque in the post rebate scheme lead to a flood of complaints to the regulator as consumers were having to chase their money, albeit this was a campaign run by handset vendors rather than the operators.
