I believe it is a human tendency to love receiving freebies, as, who wants to spend money on things when one can get them for free.

What it was?

Today, I would like to talk about one such time, when I received earphones for free, along with a brand new phone that I purchased from the store. Actually, I really needed a new
phone from a very long time, and so, I went to the nearest Samsung store to check out some updated android versions.

Who you received it from?

When I entered the store, the receptionist was very kind and warmly welcomed me. She asked me about my preferences and budget. Accordingly, she was showing me all the samples. At first, I was really enticed and perplexed at the same time, as I could not decide
which one to buy. Finally, after giving it a lot of thought, I chose the one which cost me around fifteen thousand rupees , and to my surprise, the owner told me that I have received a pair of free earphones, which was white in color.

Where you received it? 

I received it from the store there itself. He told me that it was a gesture of goodwill to enhance customer experience, so on every purchase of worth more than ten thousand rupees, they gift free earphones.

And how you felt about it?

I was really happy to receive it, because of saving a big amount on it. Furthermore, they were noise cancellation earphones, therefore the sound quality was quite refined. I really enjoyed listening to soothing music on rainy days, sitting by the window side sipping hot tea from my favorite cup, with my earphones on. Overall, this was a time when I received something for free.
