OnePlus begins auctioning off OnePlus 2 invites, proceeds go to charity


OnePlus may not have a great history when it comes to creating promotions for invites to buy its phones, but the company’s latest promo is a good one.

OnePlus today kicked off Invites for a Cause, an effort that’ll let you bid on OnePlus 2 invites and help out a charity, too. OnePlus is selling 100 invites on eBay, and all of the proceeds will go to help the UNICEF Tap Project, which helps get clean water to underprivileged kids.

There are currently 50 invites available on OnePlus’ eBay page, with bidding ranging from $31 to $355. These auctions will last until August 8, and OnePlus plans to begin auctioning off another 50 invite tomorrow. If you win, you’ll get an invite to buy a 64GB Sandstone Black OnePlus 2. You’ll have a full week to claim your invite and a full month to buy your OnePlus 2.

OnePlus says that it’s noticed some invite holders selling their invites on third-party sites in the past, and while that’s not technically against any rules, this Invites for a Cause campaign does the same thing but is backed by OnePlus and helps a worthy charity. While a lot of us may not be huge fans of OnePlus’s invite system as a whole, most of us could probably agree that it’s nice to see OnePlus using the system for good.
