OnlineBingo.co.uk has today announced an exclusive partnership with large operator site Foxy Bingo. Users can recycle their old phones by completing and submitting a simple form within Online Bingo UK. There is a dedicated recycle page on the site and the form should take less than two minutes to complete. The green user selects the phone they would like to recycle and is told on the spot how much Foxy Bingo credit they will be issued upon recyling. OnlineBingo.co.uk even accepts non-working phones!
Once the phone has been sent via Free Post, it is checked against police records to ensure it hasn't been stolen and is then recycled. This might mean people in less developed areas of the UK or even less developed areas of the world having mobile access because of the user's green act.
The process is very simple - search for your phone by model or manufacturer and you'll be told how much Foxy Bingo cash you will receive. This amount is very generous and Ben Starr of Online Bingo UK said, 'We are delighted to have Foxy on board. They're arguably the UK's biggest bingo brand and as such they have been incredibly generous to our users. We have calculated that Foxy Bingo will be giving away 3 times the usual value for each phone. Quite amazing!'
For example, to recycle a Nokia 3110 Classic mobile phone, a user can generally expect about £13 in return. When recycling through Online Bingo UK though, they will receive £39 of Foxy Bingo money.
The website has a huge catalogue of phones so the user should have no problem finding their old model. Ben Starr went on to say, 'Of course, we're a bingo portal and we pride ourselves on providing the latest news and best reviews - but just because our users love bingo it doesn't mean they don't have interests in anything else. Going green is becoming increasingly more popular and we wanted to give our users and members the chance to go green in a bingo-related manner.
