Anyone seen this new deal going around? https://www.trustpower.co.nz/promotion/samsungtv?lcra=true kinda tempting. I could do with a new tv but their unlimited fibre plan seems expensive compared to what im paying with slingshot $112 a month. But the new tv is tempting. Has anyone tried signing up getting the tv then changing provider? Do you have to return the tv if you exit the contract early? like how tight are the contracts around these sort of deals? I found the promotion through a facebook link there were several comments saying terrible service. lol.

I'll let you in on a secret. The TV isn't really free.  How else do you think Trustpower pay for it? They get you to....just another way.

There's a reason they have to trick people into thinking they're getting freebies by joining their service.

As John (I think it was John, anyway) used to say, "friends don't let friends join Trustpower", which is very true.
