Reminds me of their dumb move of limiting stock on purpose when they first came to market...
Will correct this for you "I hate how stores have regular prices and then one day per year they have Black Friday prices. If they can afford Black Friday prices they should have them all year round."
Sorry, almost forgot:

You see these "coupons" and "promotions" tactics used every where, can't really call them stupid. Just a common marketing strategy.
They grew to the size they are right now because of the value and quality of their products, not their marketing that follows the simplest tactics from books like Influence. lol
Their marketing has always been mediocre at best. Just look at how they launch products and how most people perceive them (cheap apple knockoff). If they had good marketing this would not have been the case...

lol ok man I'll stop Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes
But the fact that their tactics annoy/frustrate someone who loves their product and have convinced at least 5 other friends/family to swtich to oneplus speaks to their inattention to user experience...
Ok I'm seriously done complaining lol

Agree that they have great products, disagree that they have mediocre marketing. Their community management is one of the better ones. If managing a company of this size only requires reading of a book from 15 years ago, then I would like to see what you've done with your marketing expertise.

The only product that they copied apple is the buds which I am sure they know what they are doing. If anything, their phones reassembles Samsung more so than Apple. You can go on and on about who copied who. We can say the same about Apple copying things from Android, it's a never ending battle and no one is even here to fight with you. Some of us are only here to enjoy the products that companies are putting out and not to try to gain ego by attacking a company.

Codes are not transferable as per other people said. You can use another email to generate new codes. Please read the thread.

The best tip I found so far in this thread is this -
you can keep clicking to share on facebook and get new attempts (up to a certain limit).

The marketing is actually working as intended.
They want to limit the loss of profitability by limiting supply of coupons.
They expect people would be un-knowledgeable and actually share the promo through facebook and twitter.
Sure you can make more accounts and emails, but they expect you might give up and settle for 20% or BOGO offer.
Also going back to the un-knowledgeable bunch, they assume some might sign up to their newsletter which would generate additional leads.

There's a bunch of indirect tactics applied in marketing.

I made three accounts already and still only ended up with 3x3=9 10% off codes, has anybody got a 50% code in the last 2 hours? Just so I know whether or not to keep trying?

Is it just me, or have they pretty much pulled everything except the 10% off coupons from the pool? I've tried probably 15 accounts now. Different browsers, etc. Just those 10% codes.
