Trump administration officials have announced new promotions that boost mobile and tablet sales.
The Department of Labor, Department of Transportation and Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs announced that the Federal Aviation Administration is adding new mobile promotion programs to their existing mobile promotional programs, while the National Transportation Safety Board is adding a new promotion for smartphone and tablet applications.
“The Department of Commerce is launching a new mobile promotional program in which it will be able to offer consumers more mobile promotional opportunities for smartphones and tablets,” the Commerce Department said in a statement.
“The program will be offered through the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, Federal Trade Commission, and Office for Consumer Advocacy.
Consumers can participate in the program through the website and mobile app for the consumer credit reporting company Experian.”
In a separate statement, the Office of Management and Budget announced a new $5 smartphone promotion.
The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Information Technology said it would be available through the Office’s Federal Trade Commissions website and via the mobile application for the credit reporting service Equifax.
“These mobile promotions will be available for consumers to purchase a smartphone and then activate it to take advantage of the additional promotion available on the Equifax website,” the agency said.
The Office of Labor and Industries announced it is adding smartphone promotions to its existing promotions.
The new promotions will increase the amount of smartphones eligible for the smartphone promotion, it said.
“In addition, these smartphone promotions will allow consumers to take part in the additional promotions available through Equifax, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and other Federal agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration,” the statement said.
President Donald Trump on Monday signed a new executive order to create a new federal consumer credit bureau, the Federal Trade Council said in an advisory Monday.
The agency said the bureau will help consumers access and manage their credit reports, and will “make it easier for consumers and businesses to share their credit information.”
The new bureau is expected to launch in the second half of 2020.
