O+ 8.15 Discount Promo at SM North EDSA O+ Concept Store Extended Due to Overwhelmingly Large Buyer Turn-Out!

I woke up at around 12 noon today to a rather distraught text message from my friend and TP Correspondent, Mon Arguelles, who was at SM North EDSA for the O+ Concept Store Opening Sale, which was supposed to have already concluded at 11AM.

Quoting his SMS, "Mark, di ba first 100 lang makakakuha ng sale ng O+ 8.15?! Halos 1,000 na ang tao dito sa SM North!" Worried, I immediately checked Twitter for photos confirming his concern and this is what I found:

Apparently, despite knowing that only 100 units of O+ 8.15 Quad Core Android smartphone - first featured and previewed on TechPinas - will be included in today's Php 3,000 off promo, hundreds upon hundreds (if not thousands) of O+ fans still took their chance and stormed to the spanking new O+ Concept Store in SM North EDSA to take advantage of the offer. This resulted in the almost uncontrollable mob captured in the image above. One of my readers who went to the sale even told me, "Sir Mark, meron pong hinimatay kanina (yet to be confirmed) dahil sa sobrang daming tao. Grabe po ang dami ng dumating sa sale and para pong nagulat rin ang O+ staff sa dami ng turn-out."

Since I helped O+ in fanning out information about this promo earlier this week, I felt partially responsible for what happened. I was worried that those who went to the concept store with money in their pockets would feel so disappointed if they won't be able to bring home their desired O+ handset due to these unforeseen circumstances. And this is why I felt so relieved when O Plus USA tweeted me this message at around 5PM:

The company has decided to extend the sale until 10PM tonight to accommodate everyone who came to support their opening sale! Yebah! Kudos to O+ for being this mindful of their fans!

According to Fel, one of our dear friends from the company, "The O+ 8.15 [Php 3,000 off promo] is extended until 10PM while [discount promo for] the rest of the products [including O+ 8.12, O+ 8.9, and O+ 8.6] is extended until tomorrow." So there you go! If you weren't able to catch the 10AM to 11AM promo hour earlier, you still have time to go to SM North EDSA to take advantage of this major discount!
