New stop-motion ads highlight “My Circle” and holiday deals on popular handsets
LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Nov 14, 2008 — To ring in the holiday season, Alltel Wireless, America’s largest wireless network, is bringing back the popular stop-motion animation characters that brightened its TV commercials last year. The Sales Guys and Chad return in animated form as their rivalry continues. While Chad encourages everyone to communicate with friends and family this holiday season with “My Circle,” the Sales Guys continue to be naughty in their plot to ruin the festive season.
This season, three spots, entitled “Letters to Santa,” “Rocket Van,” and “Town Tree,” will air for through December 25th on outlets including A&E, Bravo and USA Network, each highlighting Alltel’s “My Circle” calling plan and several of the hottest phones.
As part of the special seasonal offerings, Alltel is making it easy for customers to delve into the holidays with the Samsung Delve available for only $99.99 after mail-in rebate. This hot, new phone gives customers a customizable touch-screen display, full HTML Web browser and an intuitive interface. For customers wanting to get the season rocking, Alltel is also offering the LG Rhythm, a dynamic music phone, for only $49.99 after mail-in rebate. With this purchase, customers will also receive up to four free camera phones. Additionally, customers needing a text-savvy phone will enjoy Alltel’s popular LG Scoop, which is only $0.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate, a price that will surely make consumers happy this holiday season. The great holiday deals on these handsets are available until December 25th for new and existing upgrading customers who sign a two-year service agreement.
Alltel is adding to the season of giving by offering customers who purchase any new Alltel handset a free month of two of Alltel’s most popular applications–Alltel Navigation, providing turn-by-turn driving directions directly on the phone, and XM Radio Mobile, delivering unlimited access to 25 of the most popular satellite radio stations available. The free month of Alltel Navigation and XM Radio Mobile is available until December 25th. Complete details on all offers are available at www.alltel.com.
“Alltel knows that wireless phones are going to be among the most desired gifts to receive this holiday season, and we have a fantastic array of exciting phones that fit the needs of all of our customers,” said Dow Draper, senior vice president of data and voice solutions for Alltel Wireless. “We are also pleased to be giving our customers the gift of a free month of Alltel Navigation and XM Radio Mobile with any new handset purchase, allowing them to experience some of the great functionality available on these phones.”
