Our free tickets
After applying for a new extension line for my mom (from my account) and availing the BlackBerry Curve 9220, I was able to get a free Lower Box ticket for the concert.
Last Saturday night (23 June 2012), Globe announced on Twitter (via username @enjoyGLOBE) that it will give away 2 free tickets each to the first 999 loyal Globe and BlackBerry users (postpaid and prepaid) which will sign up at the website provided on Twitter.
I was lucky enough to have read the tweet once it was posted and was able to sign up for me (2 tickets) and my sister (2 more tickets). I was able to claim another 2 Lower Box tickets for my principal postpaid account. However, due to technical issues with the email sent by Globe to my sister's email account, Globe had to resend an email with the QR code. Due to the 1-day delay, all Lower Box tickets were already given away and we were only able to avail additional 2 Upper Box tickets (free seating).
Through the promos, we were able to secure 5 free tickets - for me, my 2 sisters and 2 cousins. Amazing! It seldom happens that free tickets are given away just like that.
Thanks to Globe and BlackBerry for giving us free access to this cool concert! I'm sure we'll have a great time enjoying true blue R&B and pop entertainment from Nicki Minaj herself.
