Earlier this week OnePlus announced that they were going to start offering free shipping on their new smartphones. If you are a buyer in the London area, OnePlus is planning a special event on Thursday in conjunction with Henchman to provide free delivery within one hour of purchasing a new OnePlus 2 or OnePlus X. To try to make sure they live up to this commitment, OnePlus and Henchman say the devices will be free if not delivered within 60 minutes.
Along with the opportunity to get your new device within an hour without ever having to leave your home or office, OnePlus is offering a couple random gifts for buyers who choose the Henchman delivery option. First, somewhere in the mix of devices being delivered will be a special limited-edition OnePlus X Ceramic version that will be delivered to a random person. Another random winner who orders a OnePlus 2 will receive a premium gift bag.
To help make sure OnePlus and Henchman can keep up with demand and meet their delivery deadlines, users have to place their order via a special site where batches of the devices will be available on a first-come first-serve basis. The fun will start at 9 am with batches replenished at 10 am, 12 noon, and 2 pm.
For those not familiar with Henchman, it is an on-demand delivery service serving the London area. Users have an app where they can place an order or request a Henchman. The Henchman will then go and collect your purchase from the place it is ordered and then deliver it to you within one hour.
If you are in London and want to place an order for a OnePlus X or OnePlus 2 using this unique delivery option, bookmark the source link below so you can return to it first thing in the morning and try to get your order in.
