2degrees arrives at Noel Leeming and Bond and Bond stores

2degrees continues its mission to provide value to more kiwis, this time expanding its distribution to leading appliance and electronics retailer Noel Leeming Group.

From 31st August kiwis will be able to buy 2degrees products and services in 89 Noel Leeming and Bond & Bond stores nationwide.

Eric Hertz, 2degrees CEO, says he is excited to be partnering with one of the country’s largest retailers.

“There is great synergy between 2degrees and Noel Leeming Group; we’re both committed to offering our customers high levels of customer service and the best technology at great prices.
With so many stores across New Zealand, it will now be even easier for New Zealanders to access 2degrees products.”
Noel Leeming Group CEO, John Journee adds, “2degrees is now a key player in the market and we’re thrilled to have them on board and to be introducing the popular range of 2degrees products to Noel Leeming and Bond & Bond stores.

From 31st August, New Zealanders can purchase 2degrees SIMs, top ups, USB Modems and an extensive range of mobile phones, including the latest smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S III.

Like 2degrees, Noel Leeming stores have partnered with Fly Buys, to give customers Fly Buys Points when they purchase. Customers can also receive on-going points on 2degrees, just for paying their ‘Pay Monthly’ bill or topping up their Prepay account. Points can then be redeemed for a huge range of aspirational items such as coffee machines, flights and experiences.
