Good question and looking forward to some answers. It is a Eligible Phone and I’d assume if you gave it as a holiday gift to a family member or SO they would receive the free service if activated on their account unless RW considers the purchaser of the phone the **customer **in their fine print.
**Each (x ) Moto Z Play phone purchased between December 7, 2016 and December 20, 2016 at 3am EST on www.republicwireless.com and (y ) Huawei Ascend 5W purchased between December 13, 2016 and December 19, 2016 on www.republicwireless.com (both phones are collectively referred to herein as the “Eligible Phones”), will be eligible to receive up to six (6 ) consecutive months of Republic Wireless’s unlimited talk and text plus 1GB of cellular data service plan free of charge (taxes and telecom charges not included) (the “Offer”).
The customer must activate the Eligible Phone (x ) on or prior to December 29, 2016, (y ) chose a valid Republic Wireless service plan, and (z ) agree to the Republic Wireless Terms of Service (a “Valid Activation”). Offer is only valid on the Eligible Phone for the customer account entered as part of the Valid Activation. The Offer has no cash value, is not valid for payment of any kind other than as a service credit for a Republic Wireless service plan, not transferrable, and not valid on the service plans of any wireless carrier other than Republic Wireless.
