Today only: HTC offering up to 30% discount on all products site-wide, including One A9


HTC has kicked off its special 24-hour holiday deals today, offering up to 30% off all of its products. Customers who order phones or accessories from HTC’s official online store can get either 15%, 20% or 30% discount, depending on how much they spend. As you’d expect, the more you spend, the more discount you get. Here’s how it breaks down:

  • Spend $650 or more and get 30% off your order
  • Spend $400 or more and get 20% off your order
  • Spend $200 or more and get 15% off your order

As an example, you’d get about $100 off the $499 list price for the newly released One A9. Buy it together with the $180 Desire 626 and you’ll break the $650 barrier and receive a discount of just over $200, practically giving you the Desire 626 for free.

There are no special all CAPS codes to copy and paste at checkout. Add items to your basket as usual — anytime before midnight Pacific tonight, November 1oth — and you’ll get any qualifying discount added automatically. The deal is valid between 9pm Pacific last night and 11:59 Pacific tonight, and applies to any order up to $2000 before shipping and taxes. Orders have to be shipped to a valid address in the 50 United States, and the District of Columbia.
