T-Mobile Launches BOGO 50% Off Promotion for iPhone SE

by

T-Mobile has announced that its "Buy One Get One Half Off" promotion returns March 31, offering qualifying Simple Choice customers half off the iPhone SE when they buy a second iPhone SE and add it to a new line of postpaid service. The deal also applies to the iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 6/6s Plus, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c. Certified pre-owned iPhones are not eligible for the limited-time offer.

TMobile-iPhone-SE
The promotion effectively brings the total cost of two new iPhone SE devices down to $600, compared to $800, plus applicable taxes. The rebate, which must be submitted within 30 days of the purchase of your second eligible iPhone, will be provided in the form of a prepaid MasterCard. T-Mobile will honor the deal for customers who already pre-ordered the iPhone SE since March 24.

Both new iPhones must be purchased through a single T-Mobile account on a JUMP! monthly financing plan, and one of the new devices must be on a new line of service. The account must remain in good standing, and the second iPhone must remain in service until at least July 15, 2016. The BOGO offer cannot be combined with T-Mobile's JUMP! On Demand early upgrade program, but customers can switch.

AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint customers can combine the offer with Carrier Freedom promotion, which provides those who switch to T-Mobile up to $650 towards a balance owing or to pay off early termination fees (ETFs) with an eligible device trade-in. Other T-Mobile perks include Binge On for unlimited streaming of select video services, Music Freedom for unlimited streaming of select music services, Data Stash, and Mobile Without Borders.

With all these things offerings by T-Mobile will shake the competition, for awhile, yes. But it seems like it's becoming ineffective and the competitors just ignoring it. Until they make their network on par with at least AT&T the competition is not worried. But they got me and ended up switching to them. The only benefit so far for me is that my bill is lower and I have new phones. Other than that their network is spotty.

It's not ineffective... At all! The others have shown that they are willing to "copy" paying ETFs and the like. Cost over all has come down on service plans in the industry in the USA.

Coverage... It's getting there. I see it improving in the areas I travel and frequent the most. It's not on par with ATT or VZW. You're right, but it's a ton better than even last year.

What happens if I already have 4 TMO Cell phone lines?


I upgrade phone on line #1
I get phone #2 and start line #5
I cancel line #3 and replace with line #5 number.
I move the sim card between the two phones so new phone #2 is on line #2.

This 2nd half off on on NEW line is uncannier like indeed. Not cool.
