We’ve seen these in the past, and it’s probably being done again because it’s worked. If which is the case, I’m surprised! Anyway, here’s how Cubot can ‘convert’ your $1 into $60.
Here it is in Cubot’s language:
Any customers that place an order on the $0.99 deposit before 12:00 AM Sep. 12 (GMT+8) can enjoy $60 off with exclusive COUPON CODE sent on 17:00 PM Sep.12 (GMT+8).
Use this coupon code and pay the remaining balance before 12:00 AM Sep. 17 (GMT+8). Enjoy priority in delivery! There’ll also be free gifts (Including Tempered Glass Screen Protector and Finger Grip Holder)!
In other words, you can pay $0.99 before 12:00 AM Sep. 12 (GMT+8), which will later give you a coupon code using which you can get $60 off. It isn’t clear yet if the free gifts mentioned here are only for the people who participate in this ‘deposit’ activity, or for everyone. To participate, you’re required to ‘deposit’ your $0.99 with TinyDeal.com.
The Cubot Max comes with the MediaTek MT6753A processor (which we’ve seen on a gazillion devices) with 3GB RAM, a 4100mAh battery, 6-inch 720p display, 13 mega-pixel main camera, etc.
