Deal: some honor 5X smartphones can be bought for just $1 unlocked (US only, limited time offer)
Released in January in the US, the Huawei-made honor 5X offers pretty attractive features for its price ($199.99 unlocked). But what would you say if you could buy the smartphone for only $1 (one Dollar), also unlocked? Well, today, April 8, you can do that, though this involves a bit of luck.

Huawei is hosting a sale that allows buyers in the US to get the honor 5X for just $1 every 8th minute of every hour. The sale started at 10:08 am CST, and will end at 10:08 pm CST. Right now, it's 3:47 pm CST, so there are still 7 (seven) honor 5x handsets that can be bought for just $1 - all you need to do is place your order at 4:08 CST, or 5:08 CST, or 6:08 CST, and so on. Sure enough, plenty of customers will try this, so you need to be fast and lucky for the honor website (accessible at the source link below) to process your order first.

If you won't be able to purchase the handset for $1, maybe you want to win one for free by participating in our honor 5X giveaway (open internationally). Of course, if you're in the US, nothing stops you from trying both the sale, and the giveaway. Good luck!

The phone doesn't even appear on either of the Huawei websites I tried. It's April 8th, not 1st!

The site says they're out of stock on the link they provide on their site for the sale, was like that when I checked an hour ago. Does the phone only get back in stock in the exact 8th minute of every hour or what? Direct link to the sale page:
