The free gift I am going to tell you is a portable bicycle which I got at my junior year in University. That was the right beginning of the term. To attract student customers and compete with its rival, the communication operator company, China Unicom, set up an advertisement campaign. It would give you various gifts including key rings, flash disks, and fluffy toys and so on, according to the amount of money you top-up at the site. This article is from Laokaoya website. Do not copy or repost it. If you top-up 500 yuan at a time, you would get a bicycle, whose size was only the half of what we usually saw on the street. The height of seat and handlebar were adjustable and the whole body was painted light green with the logo of China Unicom on it.
Then I happened to need a bike to reduce my commuting time. My campus was huge and it took me 20 minutes from dormitory to classroom. It is common in western university as students live outside of the campus, but in China, where we have dormitory right in the campus, that was a long time.
So I charged 500 yuan and got this bike. To be honest, it was not very nice, as you can imagine with the color and logo. But it did make my life much more convenient. What was more important was that it was free. So generally speaking, I was quite satisfied.
