did anyone else get one of these emails? i just got one for an AMAZING $25 off any mobile when i upgrade. this is think is pathetic and here's why.

first of all i'd like to say that i've been a vodafone customer for yonks. like 7 years or something. i have constantly seen them musing on their website that they treat their loyal customers great and am constantly offering upgrade discounts. to this day this is the very first one i've got. WOW, 7 years, $25 off my next mobile. i could get more off if i went into a retail store and go them to match the price! if it wasn't for the fact that i dislike telecom mobile even more i would have switched long ago. thank god i had the sense to look on trademe for a nz-new n95 instead of getting one with this offer. i brought it 5 months ago and i still saved like $300 on the now (stunningly discounted) $974 price from vodafone.

I received it this evening too.  What a joke.  A mere $25 off.  OK, sure, $125 if you buy online but hey, their phones are still more expensive than parallel imported phones.  Vodafone mobiles are also branded with vLive, which ruins the design.

Mine was 'Up to' $200 online, or $100 in store.

The only phone they offered with the $200 upgrade was the Nokia N95, for $799 online, or $899 instore. Others were less.
