MEMBERS GET HAPPIER HAPPY HOURS FROM VIRGIN MOBILE!


Local restaurants and bars to offer special treats and exclusive discounts just for Virgin Mobile Members

TORONTO (ONTARIO) October 4, 2010

"Just flash your phone and get a deal on us. We’re helping our Members relax, and save some cash, with Virgin Mobile’s Happy Hour," said Nathan Rosenberg, Chief Marketing Officer, Virgin Mobile Canada. “We’ve already shown our Members some love with pre-sale access to the hottest concert tickets, exclusive shows and tons of surprise giveaways. Now, this is just another way that we’re amping it up and showing our Members how it truly is better to be a Member. And if you’re really lucky, you may run into me there. That would be the icing on the cake.”
