TextNow Launches Campaign to Give Away Cash For The Holidays

San Francisco and Waterloo, ON –  November 23, 2023 – TextNow, the leading mobile provider of free cellular and WiFi-enabled phone service in the U.S., today announced its Secret Santa Giveaway, kicking off the holiday season by offering users the chance to win cash prizes each day they log into the app. The giveaway will begin on Thursday, November 23, and continue through Monday, November 27. 

45% of the lowest-income holiday shoppers say inflation will change how they shop this holiday season. TextNow’s Secret Santa Campaign serves to further alleviate financial stress on its customers in addition to providing affordable and flexible phone service as alternative to expensive, long-term carrier plans. 

“The holiday season brings added financial stress on too many hard-working Americans,” said Derek Ting, CEO and Co-Founder of TextNow. “We hope this giveaway will lighten the burden on some of our TextNow customers and allow them to spend some extra time with their families.” 

Financial stress has been felt all year round by Americans who have had to adjust to the rising costs of food and other living expenses. TextNow’s free phone service – backed by the nation’s largest 5G network – aims to help eliminate one monthly bill, and put some much needed cash back in customers’ pockets. And for this holiday season, users can also win daily cash prizes of $300 or $500 by logging into the TextNow app each day to look for a hidden Secret Santa. The Santa popup is set to appear at random times from Thursday, November 23 through Monday November 27. Once clicked, users are prompted to fill in their name, email, and phone number to be notified in the case that they win the prize.
