After you’ve gotten through security and beat the airport crowds to your gate, making it onto your flight will surely be a huge relief.

  • Free in-flight Wi-Fi: A deal that speaks for itself. Use your T-Mobile number to access free Wi-Fi all flight long to stream, surf and text up to 30,000 feet in the sky.

With Magenta Status, you get to check in and feel like a VIP guest all stay long. Sure, you’re already sold on the discounted digs, but did you know you can get sweet spa deals, too?

Social media is buzzing, and your group chat is blowing up your phone. Why? Because that artist you’ve been waiting to see all year just dropped summer tour tickets! Exciting! But the best part is, for you, this won’t be just any concert experience. After you score some sweet seats, you’ll be able to skip the lines and enjoy VIP treatment from the moment you walk into the venue.

With awesome deals that help you save on select festival experiences, concert tickets, sporting events and more, here are a few perks that will make you feel like you’re the star of the show:
