OnePlus X sales go invite-free once a week from here on out

Is the tide finally turning when it comes to OnePlus and its – to be polite, we’ll say “unusual” – invite-based sales system? The OnePlus 2 has only been out since this summer, yet earlier this month it cut ties with that invite program for good, entering the world of traditional cash-for-product retail sales. Not all of the OnePlus lineup is ready to totally ditch invites, though, and the newer OnePlus X will be staying invite-only for now. That said, OnePlus has been tweaking its invite process for the smartphone, and today we learn even more about just how easy it’s going to be to get your hands on this guy.

OnePlus gave us hope when it talked about recurring periods of no-invite-needed OnePlus X sales, but it wasn’t previously clear just how easy it might be to pick one up without a code. The manufacturer told us that beginning this month we’d be seeing regular periods of no-invite sales, and we got our first taste a week back – but just how frequently would those be recurring?

It turns out: pretty damn frequent. Starting tomorrow, OnePlus will sell the OnePlus X with no invite needed each and every Tuesday. Miss you chance this week, and you can just buy it next week – and so on, and so forth.

Sure, one-day-a-week invite-free sales for the OnePlus X is hardly the same as the straight-up available anytime status of the OnePlus 2, but it’s a huge step forward for availability; there’s no more guesswork as to when the next invite-free sales will open, and putting your purchase off for at most six days is pretty minor hardship, as they come.
