Australian Carrier Lets Customers Win Prizes With Unused Data

Virgin Mobile Australia, in an effort to win over new customers, is launching a data auction where you can use your unused data and turn it into stuff like phones, drones and a $40K vacation.

For a limited time, however, Virgin Mobile customers in Australia can transform those dead digits into phones, drones and other swag. To be sure, the "data auction" is a publicity stunt that mostly benefits Virgin, since there's but a single prize each day over the month-long promo. In addition, you have to bid all your remaining data, so you can only win once.
