Tel3Advantage: New Customer Promotions

Tel3 provides a bonus for new Tel3Advantage customers to encourage people to sign-up and try the service. Most people are not aware that they actually offer two different bonus options for new customers. These are accessed via different links (provided below) and offer slightly different deals. The best option for an individual depends on factors like their calling pattern, what countries they plan to call and how long they plan to use the product. The following is a discussion of the two new customer promotions offered by Tel3Advantage.

For discussion purposes, we will call one option the Standard Bonus and the other option the Triple Bonus. The following is a discussion of each.

1. Tel3Advantage Standard Bonus - A new customer pays standard rates for each call and gets the following bonus depending on how much they initially deposit into the account. Note that the bonus amount can only be used to make calls and is based on the initial deposit. There is no bonus for subsequent deposits.

  • Deposit $10 and get $0 Bonus.
  • Deposit $25 and get a $5 Bonus.
  • Deposit $50 and get a $7 Bonus.
  • Deposit $100 and get a $9 Bonus.

2. Tel3Advantage Triple Bonus - The so called Triple Bonus is similar to the standard bonus except the customer gets less cash deposited into the account but pays 30% lower rates on all calls for the first 30 days. The following is the bonus schedule.

  • Deposit $10 and get $0 Bonus.
  • Deposit $25 and get a $3 Bonus.
  • Deposit $50 and get a $6 Bonus.
  • Deposit $100 and get a $9 Bonus.

How does a new customer decide on the best bonus? If they want to deposit $10 or $100 the choice is simple, the Triple Bonus is best because it provides the same cash bonus and 30% lower rates for the first 30 days. For a person who wants to deposit $25 the choice is not as clear. We think the Triple Bonus is the best option for most people but there are exceptions. For example, a caller who plans to make short, infrequent calls to a relatively low cost country will likely do better with the standard bonus. However, this is not a typical calling pattern so we think most people should sign-up using the Triple Promo.
