Smart, through its prepaid brand Talk ‘N Text, is holding a special 15-day promo exclusive to teachers as part of the Teachers’ Month celebration.
From October 1 to 15, those currently teaching at private or public schools are entitled to a special treat when they purchase one of three mobile phone units at discounted prices.
The units will be available at SM Clark and SM Pampanga and at Nepo Mall here.
“Teaching is not the most financially rewarding profession. This Talk’ N Text offer of low-cost handsets is meant to address their need to be connected without breaking the bank. This is Smart’s way of making them feel special during Teachers’ Month,” said Perry V. Bayani, Talk ‘N Text Marketing group head.
