This guy got free pizza until 2016 by expertly playing off O2 and Three on Twitter

The DEFINITION of a chancer.

YOU THINK YOU’RE a chancer? You’re not a chancer. This lad could teach you a thing or two, though.

Dan May, an O2 customer from Essex, England, showed exactly what can happen when you expertly pit two rival phone companies against each other.

It all began after O2 promised to send free pizza to anyone who replied with their address – Dan never got any, and threatened to switch to Three unless he was sent a few slices:

Three immediately jumped in saying they would be more than happy to send Dan some pizza AND ice cream:

O2 then raced to better that offer, promising Dan free pizza for the rest of the year:

But Three were already on his doorstep with some Tasty Pizza Hut:

Nevertheless, the O2 offer still stood, and Dan decided to remain their ‘loyal’ customer.

He told Metro.co.uk:

I couldn’t believe it. I only sent out a couple of tweets and they both went all-out to compete against one another. I was really impressed with Three after being disappointed by O2, but they certainly won the customer back.

So to recap: Not only did he get a boatload of free pizza from Three, he is also getting free Dominos for the rest of the year from O2.
