OnePlus announces OnePlus Red Cable Club rewards program (only in one country)
OnePlus has launched an exclusive new rewards program for its Indian users. Called the OnePlus Red Cable Club, the program bundles benefits of OnePlus Care, free 50GB cloud storage, and a chance to win The Red Cable Jackpot.
The name of the new program was inspired by OnePlus’ distinctive red charging cables.
“Our community has been at the core of OnePlus in our journey over the years. As we complete six successful years, the launch of the OnePlus Red Cable Club is a testament of our gratitude to our five million strong OnePlus community in India,” said OnePlus CEO Pete Lau in an emailed press release.
OnePlus Red Cable Club Benefits
As mentioned before, the OnePlus Red Cable Club is designed to reward OnePlus smartphone users in India. OnePlus users registered for the club will get all OnePlus Care benefits including a free one year extended warranty for the OnePlus 6T, 7, and 7T series. OnePlus 3, 3T, 5, 5T, and 6 series users will also get 50% off battery replacements. All OnePlus smartphone users from the first generation to 7T will be eligible to claim upgrade offers.
OnePlus notes that only one of the above mentioned benefits will be available per phone/IMEI.
Beside OnePlus Care benefits, Red Cable Club members will also stand a chance to participate in the Red Cable Club Jackpot. Participants can win curated gift boxes each worth Rs 1 Lakh (~$1,400) and 50% discount vouchers on the OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2 earphones. The jackpot will be open until December 31, 2019.
Once you become a Red Cable Club member, you can go to Settings > Account > Community > Profile to take part in the Red Cable Club Jackpot once a day.
Lastly, all OnePlus Red Cable Club members will get 50GB of free cloud storage for a year.
How to become a OnePlus Red Cable Club member?
OnePlus users in India can enroll in the Red Cable Club by heading to their phone’s settings. This free membership lasts for a lifetime.
If you are using Android 10, head to Settings > System > System update and update your phone to the latest version. After your phone is updated, go into Settings and login to your OnePlus Account to link your phone. Once your device is successfully linked, you will be automatically registered for a Red Cable Club membership.
Those on older versions of Android will have to download and update the OnePlus Community app from the Google Play Store. After updating the app, head to Community > Profile > Red Cable Club to link your phone and become a member.
If you are using a OnePlus 1/2/X, download OnePlus Care and verify your device to get the benefits.
