    Returning my order of the 8t. For 50 dollars more I get the 8pro which comes with headphones and the fast wireless charger. They can have their "mystery gift" back

    Really strange that no tech news site jumped on this shitshow, I guess they are afraid of not receiving promo/review products from OP if they would publish.

    The tech news are aware of this situation. It just might not be "newsworthy".

    It's alright OP might suffer the same fate as Huawei. OP is owned by a china company BBK electronics.

    For things like this, brands stop offering gifts. What brand these days gives you something?

    What brand says a flask is worth $99? Not even Apple is that bad.

    Also, what brand promises a $99 gift, then puts out a better bundle a little later that's also given away free, but doesn't give the same, if not better, gift to the people that ordered first?

    This is marketing 101, and OP failed miserably.

    #teamreturn
    I just opened a case in Paypal for a full refund
    in the paypal receips clearly states that the value of the gift should be 99 USD
    If paypal acknowledges that there was fraud involved OP is liable for the full refund without any of the RMA hassle

    Let us know how it goes. I know a few who used PayPal too - will pass it on so that they can dispute the charges too.

    I will keep posting my experience on social media every time there is an OP launch event so that people do not get duped with such shady marketing gimmicks at least in the future. It looks like they don't really care anyways.

    This outrage is not about the free gifts. Many would have bought the phone without any gifts at all, as these were the most loyal OP customers who ordered right after the launch event. The outrage is about being lied to by OP and sending a $20 flask when they claimed that the gift was worth $99. It would still haven’t been an issue if they did not offer the popup bundle soon after that at the exact same price (although it was not initially offered through their pre-order web page). So this is a case of OP hurting their most loyal and long-term customers and not showing the slightest care in the world when so many customers are returning their purchase and posting their experience on their official forums. They did not even have the courtesy of posting an apology on this forum, at the very least.

    They did this for tax purpose man..That what I think. Free gift of 99 dollar x 1000000 customer = less taxes. They FUQ us hard. I wouldnt even be mad if they said free mystery gift (without the 99 dollar value)

    Actually if you pre order the samsung note 20 ultra, you get a credit. (My friend got a tablet with his pre-order credit).
    When I pre-ordered the samsung galaxy s10, it came with the wireless buds. (Which I sold to offset the price of the s10).

    And OP has the audacity to run the contest for #TeamSpeed and #TeamSmooth, so ppl that brought the pop up bundle has a chance for gifts and such.

    I hope their gift is the stupid flask also. I'd rather pay $30 for the LTT water bottle than this free OP Flask. It's not even nice, so much fingerprints.

    I purchased Sunday night in the US and was aware at the time of the pop up bundle from this forum but went with the mystery gift as both were represented as a $99 value and so the only risk was in what item(s) I would get and not in the value of the items. That's what oneplus's website told me.

    Later when I found out about the water bottle and that oneplus had reneged I called and was also was offered the $20 coupon and actually felt a little insulted by that plus it means to use I would need to spend more money with oneplus. Everyone makes mistakes but then you try and make it right and so boo to oneplus not only for doing this and not making it right but then burying their head in the sand and pretending like they didn't mess up and that this issue doesn't exist. The kicker is if a mystery gift and pop up bundle never existed there would have been no issue.

    And on top of that now I can't find a case that will arrive within a week and as I don't want to damage the phone it will sit in the box till I buy a case. And with that now this pop up guy is adding insult to injury lol:

    For $1,099CAD for the 8t, it's not even that great of a phone. They just sweeten the deal with a "mystery gift" valued at $149CAD.

    But it tried out to be a crummy flask.
    I admire this person that sold his useless flask for $120USD

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Oneplus-st...=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    At least someone values the flask at $120USD. But not me.

    It's not just convenient that Carl left OP before the release of the 8t. Carl probably knew about the mystery gift being a flask and having a false value of being $149CAD.

    It's not uncommon for a China company to lie.
