FOR the holidays, Taiwanese hardware and electronics company Acer is partnering with Chinese smartphone company Realme as they give away Realme smartphones for every qualified Acer laptop purchase from now until Dec. 31.

“Acer is excited to partner with Realme for this holiday promo…offering both of our top-of-the-line gadgets, we hope that his duo spread holiday cheer to you and your loved ones this Christmas season,” Sue Ong-Lim, Acer Philippines general manager, said in a press release.

During the promo launch on November at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City, Ms. Ong-Lim said the campaign is also on the back of the “record-breaking third-quarter sales” the company had for this year.

Customers who buy qualifying Acer or Predator laptop — which should have Intel Core i5 or i7 or AMD Ryzen 5 or 7 — will get a Realme C2 2020 smartphone worth P4,990 (for the Acer laptops) or a Realme 5 smartphone worth P7,990 (for the Predator laptops).

Predator is Acer’s line of high-powered gaming laptops.

To qualify for the giveaway, customers must register their new purchase for warranty at within two weeks of purchase. After registration of eligible products, customers will get an electronic voucher via email which they will have to print out for claiming at designated Realme redemption centers.

Customers need to present a valid government ID and they will have 60 days to redeem the voucher. — Zsarlene B. Chua
