GiffGaff launches a Halloween Salon
It may be too late to check it out yourself, but last week Giffgaff launched a campaign that hit the headlines at Halloween. Giffgaff opened a Halloween Salon that helped party-goers get ready, with a free pop-up hair and make-up salon in the heart of Soho.
The salon is inspired by Giffgaff’s latest ad, which encourages people to “end the nightmare” of two-year mobile phone contracts. Giffgaff, the network run by its community, does not offer contracts. It runs on a pay-as-you-go basis, and its members are free to leave at any point.
Watch the video and see inside the salon below.
Harry Potter star Emma Watson leaves books on London Underground
Emma Watson became a book fairy for a day!
The Harry Potter star dashed around the London Underground and hid 100 copies of Maya Angelou’s “Mom & Me & Mom” for passengers to find.
The book is the November pick for her online book club, Our Shared Self. To promote it, she even left a personal hand-written note inside each book for lucky finders to enjoy.
She wrote that she hoped the reader would enjoy the book and urged them to leave it on the tube afterwards for others to find.
Cordelia Oxley, director of Books on the Underground, said: “The reaction has been phenomenal. It must be a mixture of how much everyone adores Emma, and how exciting it is to find something as wonderful as a new book on your journey.”
Greggs launch a VIP WhatsApp group for hardcore pasty fans who want freebies
We’re based in Yorkshire – making us hardcore pasty fans! Therefore, a VIP WhatsApp group for Greggs freebies put a smile on many of the B3 staff members’ faces this week.
The group chat is named Festive Bake Lovers and, unfortunately, has limited places. However, Kerry, one of our PR executives, managed to get a spot on the WhatsApp group. She now has access to free cheese and bean melts, alongside opportunities to enter competitions and see exclusive content.
It’s worth giving it a shot! You can try to gain a spot on the group chat by messaging your name and number to 07759325409 – but it doesn’t automatically guarantee entry.
Also, there are a few rules to follow. Greggs said: ‘To keep everything fun and festive, we’ve got a few house rules. No spam, just turkey and ham please.”
Sounds good to me!
