Best Buy Mobile has announced a special promotion which offers customers a free Born This Way CD with the purchase of any postpaid mobile phone, along with a 2 year contract. The offer runs from May 22nd through May 28th. Also, anyone who purchases one of their three featured smartphones will receive both a physical CD album along with a digital version of Born This Way. Those three featured smartphones include the Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint, the HTC Inspire 4G for AT&T, and the Fascinate for Verizon Wireless. A free smartphone plus a free new Gaga album isn’t a half bad deal at all!
“As smartphones become more sophisticated, we’re seeing our customers rely on their mobile devices for everything from video and photos to music players,” said Scott Anderson, head of merchandising for Best Buy Mobile. “Best Buy has a solid history as an entertainment company and with the great response we’ve received from our customers around our free smartphone promotions, we felt it was an opportunity to bring these two worlds together, and give our customers two high-demand items – a new smartphone and the new Lady Gaga CD – for free no less.”
However, we don’t know if this is an officially sanctioned promotion that Lady Gaga’s team thought of, but it is likely not. That said, Lady Gaga has been very busy this past week promoting her album in interesting and unique ways. Her recent announcement to leak songs from the album via Farmville caused quite the stir. And earlier today we wrote about how she is exclusively streaming all of the tracks on her album for U.K. listeners online. At this rate, one way or another, it is becoming difficult not to obtain or listen to Lady Gaga’s upcoming Born This Way album !
