Past 8:30 am every day, I receive a text from 2350. The text of temptation.
TAWAD NA! FREE ALERT! May makakabili na ng yesterday’s <insert shiny object here like a MotorolaRAZR or WEGA flat screen TV> for only <insert ridiculously small price ranging from a mere 5 pesos to 30 pesos>!
Bid for a <insert another shiny object> today! Send TAWAD <amt> to 2350. You may send an amount w/ centavos!
And my fingers start to itch. Who wouldn’t get tempted at the prospect of getting a shiny object for that price?! Of course, when you rethink the odds of winning, it’s ridiculous! Just imagine this: 5 minutes after I receive that text promo, I immediately text my amounts, and they’re already taken!
Sadly though, I don’t learn. I get another TAWAD NA update and I text again. Bravo Globe for this very clever text promo. This is certainly going to garner Globe a hefty amount of texts.
