Kogan solves the #hairgate issue
Do you have a beard but still want to own the coolest phone avaiable? Worried about #hairgate but still want to enjoy the iPhone 6? Well Kogan have the solution for you!
In case you haven’t heard, some iPhone enthusiasts have complained that the new iPhone has been tweezing their beards, with some women even complaining that their long hair has been getting caught in their phone’s screen as well. Now while this is a rare occurence, Kogan have jumped on the chance to share both a cheeky laugh and a deal with their iPhone 6 customers. Introducing the #Hairgate collection, where Kogan is giving away a free shaver kit with every iPhone 6 purchase!
Okay, so that might not be an actual solution, but a free shaver with an iPhone 6 is still a nifty little deal, and will save a lot of guys uneecessary pain in the long run.
This comes in from the official press release:
“The latest iPhone 6 drama has surfaced, with people around the world reporting the new smartphone is pulling out hair, particularly beards. The controversy has been aptly named #hairgate.
Hipsters with beards are rumoured to be the worst affected, but it does appear to be affecting women with long hair as well.
Kogan.com, where many Aussies buy their Apple products, today unveiled a special package to help nip this in the bud and ensure it doesn’t become another #bendgate.
With reporters and social media users around the world testing out the iPhone 6’s tweezer functions, Kogan.com thought there was a simpler way to help.
For a limited time, each iPhone 6 purchased from Kogan.com will ship with a free Scharfen V-Glide Starter Pack.
Kogan.com has been busy growing its product range with a number of private labels, expanding from several hundred products one year ago, to tens of thousands now.
The retailer recently launched the Scharfen range of cut-price razors and shaving equipment.
“The broadening of our product range ensures that we are able to give our customers exactly what they want — including the ability to shave their beard off when they buy a new iPhone 6,” said Ruslan Kogan, Founder and CEO of Kogan.com.
“Don’t tear your hair out looking for the best iPhone 6 deal — this is it. But it is a limited time offer. It might be hair today, gone tomorrow. You won’t find any other retailers able to trim this much off an iPhone 6 and provide you with a free shaver as well.
“While this is an unprecedented bundle and we’re the first company in the world to offer a free shaver with an iPhone, we think the products are a perfect match. The last thing we want is Australians walking around with unsightly bald patches just because they wanted the latest smartphone.”
Rumours that Kogan.com will be offering reinforced jeans with the purchase of an iPhone 6 Plus have been denied by Ruslan Kogan. ”
