T-Mobile Offers Verizon Customers Free Year of Hulu to Switch

by

Hulu-iconT-Mobile has announced a fourth "Un-carrier Unwrapped" holiday promotion that offers Verizon customers 12 months of Hulu's Limited Commercials plan for free, a value of $7.99 per month or $96 annually.

The offer is valid for Verizon customers that switch any phone number to a T-Mobile Simple Choice postpaid plan between December 11 and December 17.

Verizon customers who switch to T-Mobile will receive a text message with a $100 Hulu subscription gift code, enough to pay for more than 12 months of Hulu's Limited Commercials plan.

Verizon customers can combine the offer with T-Mobile's Carrier Freedom promotion, which provides up to $650 towards a balance owing or to pay off early termination fees (ETFs) with an eligible device trade-in.

T-Mobile is also offering Verizon customers that switch up to half off its lineup of financed in-store accessories:

That could mean as much as a $125 discount on the hottest mobile gifts, like the latest smartwatches, UE Boom and JBL Bluetooth speakers, top-of-the-line headphones, Fitbit fitness trackers, Guitar Hero Live for iOS and more.

This limited time offer is part of T-Mobile's monthlong "Un-carrier Unwrapped" holiday promotion that offered three months of free unlimited LTE data to Simple Choice customers, a $200 bill credit for Sprint customers and $200 off a 128GB iPhone 6s for AT&T customers.

I wish that they would just focus on improving their network and not worry so much about these promotions that do nothing for current customers.

Well, they are

This is just a horrible deal. I was honestly thinking they would give real incentive for users to switch, but a year of Hulu that some may already have or not even want and 50% off some cheap overpriced accessory? Sprint got the best deal of a $200 bill credit, and ATT was pretty good with $200 off the 128GB iPhone. T-Mobile needed to give Verizon customers a real reason to ditch a superior network coverage wise. This is not it.

Seems a bit of an overreaction, don't you think? It's just a promotion on top of already great existing promotions and comparatively dirt-cheap monthly service fees. Seems to me there is no "horrible deal" going on here; they're simply going to be unable to get everyone to switch, but this will be appealing to plenty of people.

I got excited as I read the title, "T-mobile offers Verizon customers free year of.." But then read Hulu.

T-mobile, please. That's basically saying "join us, we have cookies."
