T-Mobile offers "free" phones and more for Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend
Following its “Magenta Friday” sales event last weekend, T-Mobile is offering Thanksgiving and Black Friday shoppers some deals on new phones, plus a nice offer for people who are traveling to their loved ones by plane. The deals include a way to get a “free” Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge or LG V20.
Of course, “free” is a bit of a misnomer. In this particular case, if you trade in a qualified phone and sign up for either an T-Mobile ONE or Simple Choice Unlimited plan, you can get one or more of those phones, along with an iPhone 7, and pay just the sales tax up front. Your bill will get credits for 24 months, making those phones free if you stick with it for two years. T-Mobile is also offering people who switch lines to the carrier $200 on a prepaid MasterCard card for each line, up to $2,400.
Some of the other deals in this promotion include a free Gear VR headset and $50 in a Oculus app store gift card with the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge, or you can get a free Samsung Tab E or LG Gpad X tablet when you sign up for a tablet data plan (again, you get the tablet free via 24 monthly bill credits). T-Mobile is also selling the Mophie Powerstation Mini for just $9.99 during the weekend, a savings of $50.
Finally, from November 24 to November 26, anyone on a airplane with Gogo Wi-Fi service can get one hour of free Internet, sponsored by T-Mobile. That’s for anyone on those flights, not just for T-Mobile customers.
