T-Mobile Galaxy S3 back-to-school BOGO promo unveiled – not as good as you’d have hoped

July 11, 2012

T-Mobile has already rolled out its back-to-school promotion and you’ll be happy to hear there are plenty of smartphones included in its buy-one-get-one (BOGO) sale. Even the recently launched Galaxy S3 is part of the promo, but unfortunately, you won’t be able to receive a free Galaxy S3 when buying a Galaxy S3 handset bundled with a new contract.

Instead, you’ll be able to pick from a variety of other Galaxy-branded handsets including the Galaxy S2, the Galaxy S Blaze 4G or the Galaxy Exhibit 4G when buying the new Galaxy S3. These three devices will be available free of charge part of the BOGO offer, but only after a mail-in rebate and when purchased with new two-year contracts with the carrier – so they won’t be entirely free of charge.

In addition to BOGO offerings, there are other promotions offered by T-Mobile part of its back-to-school sales that runs from July 11 through September 4. These include adding a voice line for $5 “when signing up for a new two-year contract on T-Mobile’s Family Classic Unlimited Plan” and $25 in Live Nation Concert Cash, awarded when purchasing a “Samsung 4G smartphone and a no annual contract Monthly4G plan of $50 per month or greater.”

In case you were wondering, we’re still talking about fake 4G here, so these Samsung 4G smartphones are not going to connect to T-Mobile’s inexistent LTE network – LTE deployment will start at some point in the future – but to the company’s high-speed HSPA+ network.

Anyone excited about pairing a Galaxy S3 with a “free” other Galaxy handset this summer?
