Getting the right mobile and accessories v.easy with launch of Vodafone v.store
From today New Zealanders can purchase the latest Vodafone mobiles, accessories and Prepay connection packs online at Vodafone v.store: store.vodafone.co.nz/.
Even better, everyone completing a mobile purchase will receive a special opening offer of $20 free airtime – a great way to let your friends and family know about your new mobile!
Now you don’t need to worry about the weather, finding a car park near the store or getting into town before the shops close. Vodafone v.store is always open, meaning you can compare the latest and greatest mobile phones, buy mobile accessories from bluetooth headsets to carkits to memory cards and purchase brand-new Prepay connections, 24/7.
New Zealanders increasingly use the internet to research and make purchases, says Vodafone New Zealand Online General Manager Dave Morrow. “By opening v.store, we’re helping our customers make the most of now. No longer do they have to make a special trip in-store – they can get what they want quickly and securely online now.”
The launch of v.store is accompanied by some extra hot deals. Get the Sony Ericsson V600i at $295, down from $349 or the Motorola C118 at $79, down from $109.
Also available for online purchase are the latest devices in Vodafone 3G broadband – the Vodafone Mobile Connect USB Modem – the Vodem, and the Vodafone Mobile Connect datacard. “Now our customers can get mobile broadband solutions online and easily activate the accounts by calling Customer Service on 777,” says Morrow.
Purchases from v.store are made via credit card and all purchases over $99 are delivered free of charge. Delivery is typically completed within two days of making the purchase.
And, Vodafone is offering its v.store customers additional peace of mind with its ‘change of mind’ policy. No-one is perfect, so if you’ve made a purchase that isn’t quite right, let Vodafone know within seven days of receiving your purchase. If it complies with the policy, your purchase will be refunded in full.
“As v.store develops we’ll be providing more capabilities, allowing customers to redeem upgrade vouchers, purchase and change on-account plans and purchase other calling specials online.”
