Huawei is giving away gift boxes to customers who purchase the Mate 9 in the US. A user on the XDA forum with the username aknotts415, purchased a Huawei Mate 9 smartphone from Amazon US about two weeks ago and filled out a survey provided by Huawei. After waiting for two weeks, aknotts415 received an e-mail from Huawei with a redemption code for the gift box. However, in order to redeem the gift box, one has to fill out a survey provided by Huawei, and also type in the IMEI number of your Huawei Mate 9 in the said survey. Once doing so, Huawei will send the redemption code to your registered e-mail, and you may key in the code at the Amazon checkout page to receive the gift box. However, it should be noted that your IMEI number will need to be that of a US variant Huawei Mate 9 to be valid for the promotion.
Comments from Huawei Mate 9 users in the US, have confirmed that the company is indeed giving away gift boxes to its customers. It also doesn't seem that you will need to purchase a unit from Amazon to be eligible for the gift box, and all you need is the IMEI code of a US variant Huawei Mate 9. The gift box is called the Huawei Honor Gift Box, and it retails for $14.94 on Amazon. In the box, you will receive four items, and this includes a USB Type-C fast charger compatible with all Huawei devices, a USB Type-C to Micro-USB adapter, an Honor Selfie Stick, along with a USB Type-C cable.
