Can we buy you a drink?

Starting today and until this time next week, we’re offering each of the 200 million Verizon and AT&T customers in the US a cup of coffee on us. Specifically, we’re offering a $5 Starbucks gift card to any and everyone that calculates their savings using the automated Ting savings calculator.
A $5 Starbucks gift card, you say? That’s enough for even the fanciest of coffee-based beverages: The elusive mochachaicocoaccino.
Could we end up buying a lot of coffees? Sure! That’s the goal. There’s something very compelling about a free cup of good coffee with no strings attached. Even if all 200 million AT&T and Verizon subscribers decided to take us up on this offer, we’d roll our loose change and check the couch cushions to come up with the $1 billion. Once those customers saw how much they could save, it’d be worth it.
How it works:
- Visit the Ting coffee promotion page.
- Enter your login details for your online account with AT&T or Verizon.
- The Ting calculator will reach out to your AT&T or Verizon account to automatically pull in the data from your last few mobile bills*.
- We’ll calculate your potential savings with Ting and present you with the results.
- On the calculation page, you’ll receive your $5 Starbucks gift card. We’ll also email you the details.
*Note: We do not see or store your AT&T or Verizon login or password nor do we store your personal data. We’re only interested in the actual usage data from your last few bills and what you ultimately paid as it pertains to your savings calculation.
Could AT&T and / or Verizon see what’s happening, get worried and make changes that would make it so their customers couldn’t see their savings with the Ting auto calculator? They could indeed. Do we have a contingency plan for if that happens? You know we do.
For Ting customers only
If you’ve already switched to Ting and experienced mobile that make sense, first: Thank you. Next, let us tell you that there’s something extra special in store just for Ting customers: Take a friend out for a coffee to propagandize tell them about the benefits of Ting, send us your receipt and your coffees (or teas) are on us too. Specifically, we’ll drop up to $10 in Ting credit into your account to cover the tab.
Optionally, give us your friend’s email and we’ll send them a friendly reminder to use your referral code if they’re thinking of making the move. As a Ting customer, you are, as always, eligible to receive $50 in credit for your first ever referral and $25 for each subsequent referral too.
Sounds like a plan? Have a coffee on us!
