iphonegiveaway(CMN) — People in Ireland will be shocked and amazed to hear that Apple is giving a steep discount to their customers — by offering it for $1 (that’s 99% off the original price!)

For only 24 hours, Funkyclock (NASDAQ: FYCL) has partnered up with Apple to give an exclusive discount. This is not a mistake: $1.

All of this being part of a marketing strategy, Funkyclock, a reliable distribution partner, is offering the iPhone 6S device for more than 99% off the retail price.

Why are they offering such an incredible deal to ‎Ireland residents? Marketing director Joel Branson explains: “Last year, Apple’s Ireland market share dropped to 35% and is losing to Samsung’s Galaxy S6 worldwide. Apple can recapture ‎Ireland users by giving away extremely low-priced iPhone 6S devices to people and converting them into repeat Apple customers who will spread the word to their friends” 

Sounds too good to be true? That’s what 29 year-old Richard Watkinson of Dublin thought too. He decided to give it a shot and received his $1 iPhone 6S in the mail a couple of days later.

Richard explains, “At first, I thought this was just another internet scam, but then I did some research and saw that Funkyclock is a legitimate distribution company and Apple’s partner. I decided to risk $1, it’s less than the cup of a coffee anyway. 5 days later, I checked my mail and was delighted to see a shiny new box with an Apple logo on it.”

Apparently this “practically free” promotional tactic is common practice amongst large companies with big marketing budgets. For instance, Burger King launched a similar campaign in 2013, giving away 20,000 free Whoppers on Facebook.

So you can get an iPhone 6S for incredibly cheap. But is this phone really the best smartphone on the market?

Our review department compared the iPhone 6S to many other phones and this is what we concluded: compared to previous Apple iphone versions and even Samsung phones, the iPhone 6S ranks #1 in call quality, battery life, screen resolution, speed and message delivery.

In short, it’s the best, most reliable phone currently on the market. Combined with the fact you can get one for only $1, the choice is a no brainer.
