A Photo A Week - New Printer

Every month since middle of last year, my internet service provider (Smart Telecommunications) has been trying to contact me about their offers and freebies. But I didn't mind the calls and text messages because the offers are not really free because you will still be paying for it, sometimes more expensive than it's suggested market price since it is on installment basis.

But last Monday, I received a text message from the company asking me to visit their branch near my office (where I applied for subscription almost three years ago). According to the message, the company is giving away loyalty offer to their subscribers. Out of curiosity, I went there to find out what's the fuss about. After what seems like forever of waiting for my turn, I was asked to choose what I want to avail; HP 3-in-1 printer, external hard drive, Samsung Champ (mobile phone), Nokia 2730 (mobile phone) or monthly rebate of more than Php 100. But in business world, every offer has a price. So what's the price? Renewal of my contract for another two years. After pondering for 30 seconds, I agreed to renew my contract since I have no plan of disconnecting my internet service anytime soon. I will still be paying the same amount every month so why not grab the offer?

I really had difficulties deciding what stuff to get since I'd want to get everything. LOL! Though I want the Samsung Champ and external hard drive, I decided to choose the 3-in-1 printer. Why? Because a lot of people in my family can benefit from it; my mother, my cousin who is a high school student and my nephews and niece who will definitely need this in the days to come. This is I think one of the most unselfish acts I have done in my whole life. :D

Seeing the smile on my mother's face the moment I arrived home and find out what I brought is really priceless. Apart from that, I am also happy because I can now print the recipes I have collected and compile them in a clear book. I am also motivated to learn how to create/manage digital images, scrap books and the likes - the return of my artistic side. :D

For now, my new printer is sitting on my computer table, waiting for its next task.

Kudos to freebies!
