T-Mobile Goes Holicray-cray: Just Starts Giving Away Free Phones and $$$

November 21, 2016

This Black Friday weekend only, T-Mobile’s giving away flagship smartphones for FREE, PLUS, for a limited time, you can get a cool $200 of spending money for EVERY line you switch to T-Mobile

Bellevue, Washington—November 22, 2016—Uh oh. Looks like the Un-carrier’s done with eggnog and is on to the hard stuff. Following last week’s inaugural Magenta Friday, T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced Black Friday offers that can only be described as kinda crazy. But in a good way. Starting November 24th for Black Friday weekend ONLY, you can get a FREE flagship smartphone from Samsung, LG and the other top-selling smartphone after 24 monthly credits when you trade in a qualified device you own with T-Mobile ONE. Plus, when you also switch a number to T-Mobile, you’ll get a cool $200 to spend anywhere you want for each and every line—up to 12 lines or $2,400 total!

And it doesn’t stop there. Ahead of the busiest travel days of the year, the Un-carrier is also giving everyone—even AT&T, Verizon and Sprint customers—a FREE hour of in-flight Wi-Fi on Gogo®-equipped domestic flights.

“This year, the holidays are on us!” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “2016 has been a looong year. And now it’s time for family and holidays and giving! So we’re going to start giving like only the Un-carrier can. We’re covering the cost of your holiday shopping and giving you the most popular superphones for the holidays. Call me crazy, but it feels good to give!”

According to a recent Gallup survey, the average American will spend $785 on gifts this holiday season. That’s a chunk of change. But, now, T-Mobile is giving families a great way to fill the Holiday Bank. For a family of four, you’ll get $800 spending money with T-Mobile’s “Holiday on Us” promotion – more than enough to cover the holiday tab – AND everybody in the family can get a FREE flagship smartphone, too! Told you it was crazy.


Earlier this year, T-Mobile broke records with its most popular FREE smartphone deal ever. Not only is the Un-carrier bringing that deal back for Black Friday – almost definitely for the last time – but now, customers can choose to get a FREE Samsung Galaxy S7 32GB and/or LG V20 64GB with qualifying trade-in, as well. Here’s how it works:

  1. Trade-in a qualified phone you own and get a brand new flagship smartphone for FREE!  You pay only sales tax.  If you’ve got an older trade-in or want more memory, that’s super simple, too. Just pay a little more up front. All the deets are right here and here for Samsung and here for LG.
  2. Use your new smartphone on T-Mobile with T-Mobile ONE or Simple Choice Unlimited
  3. Get the cost of your new smartphone covered via 24 monthly bill credits. In other words, pay ZERO. Zero is T-Mobile’s favorite price this holiday season.

Plus, when you also switch a number to T-Mobile, it gets even better. You’ll get $200 of spending money per line you switch – up to $2,400 – on a prepaid MasterCard® card!

Or, if you don’t need a new flagship smartphone, you can even BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Just keep your old phone to use on T-Mobile with T-Mobile ONE, and you’ll get your $200 per line in equal bill credits over 20 months.

Everyone—even AT&T, Verizon & Sprint Customers—Gets Free In-flight Wi-Fi

Thanksgiving 2016 is expected to be one of the busiest for travel in years, with nearly 4 million Americans taking to the skies. T-Mobile customers already stay connected in-flight with a free hour of Wi-Fi and free texting all flight long on their smartphone on all Gogo®-equipped domestic flights. Now, we’re sharing the love with everyone with the gift of Wi-Fi.

Starting today through Saturday, November 26, the Un-carrier is giving EVERYONE an hour of free Wi-Fi on Gogo-equipped domestic flights. There’s never been a better time for Verizon, AT&T and Sprint customers to experience one of the many perks of traveling with T-Mobile – and then make the switch!
