Our promise on Gigaset Cyber Weekend 201822. November 2018 Published by Raphael Doerr
Year after year, consumer associations warn about Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Cyber Weekend and the entire Cyber Week. The much-vaunted discounts aren’t serious, customers are hustled into buying things by hype, they often don’t really save money, and in the end they’re left sitting on products they don’t actually want.
The Consumer Advice Center of North Rhine-Westphalia, the federal state where we make our products, has discovered that instead of the “up to 90 percent” promised by many companies, the real savings are less than 20 percent.
Now to us: What you can expect from us on Cyber Weekend
- We give a genuine 20 percent off the recommended retail price of our products* – with no ifs or buts.
- That goes for all phones, smartphones and smart home devices – and not just “special offer products.”
- We won’t flog just any models that are on their way out, but instead also give a discount on our very latest models.
- We don’t have a bar showing how many articles are still in stock (“Just 8 left! Snap one up now!”) or any other psychological levers – you look around in peace and quiet and decide consciously what you would like.
- What you order from us is shipped from Germany – and not from the UK, China or Timbuktu.
- And if you’re not happy with what you get, then simply send it back to us – it goes without saying that you have full rights to return goods.
If you’ve been toying with the idea of buying a new fixed-line telephone or smartphone for some time, then Cyber Weekend is definitely the right occasion. The lower prices also make it very easy to start building a smart home. Or take the opportunity to add individual components to your existing system.
The entry-level smartphone GS100 with a 5.5-inch panoramic display is on sale at €95.20 on Cyber Weekend. The universal handset C570HX for all DECT or CATiq routers costs just €39.99. And the expandable Gigaset security pack with a base station, door sensor and siren is reduced to €63.20.
