T-Mobile Announces $200 Rebate Offer for iPhones and BOGO Deal for Apple Watch Series 3

by

T-Mobile today announced a new iPhone offer for customers thinking about purchasing one of Apple's latest smartphones. Following a BOGO deal from January, T-Mobile is now offering customers the chance to get a $200 rebate when purchasing the iPhone X, 8, 8 Plus, 7, or 7 Plus on a 24-month Equipment Installment Plan, received in the form of a prepaid MasterCard card. That's in addition to the value of an eligible smartphone that users can trade in to T-Mobile.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with T-Mobile. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

The company said that customers can combine this deal with its current free line offer from Valentine's Day, letting them add a line to any T-Mobile ONE family plan and get another for free. T-Mobile's new offer will go live this Friday, February 23, and customers who purchase an eligible iPhone should see their rebate card arrive in the mail within eight weeks. Full details on the new deal can be found on T-Mobile's website, and the carrier is still running its BOGO iPhone sale as well.

Additionally, another deal is launching this Friday at T-Mobile, this one focusing on the Apple Watch Series 3. Anyone who purchases a model of Apple's latest smartwatch will be able to get another one for 50 percent off (up to $215, according to T-Mobile). The company didn't release any more details about the Apple Watch sale yet, so it's unclear which models and collections will be available for the BOGO deal. Once the sale goes live this Friday, we'll update this post with more information.

Good deal for customers who are on the budget. T-Mobile is only good in metropolitan cities, not other areas. Their signal penetration is unbelievably horrible and the coverage is narrower than Verizon. Cheap price but with a lot inconveniences and hidden signal problems. Fortunate for those including myself who do not have to deal with T-Mobile and weak or no signals in buildings, basement and any type of buildings and able to have Verizon the best carrier with the widest coverage on the USA.

Found the Verizon employee.

If I’m going to be locked into a two year contract, I should be getting a bigger discount than just a $200 gift card.

Pretty sure T-Mob doesn't have contracts. Pay off the balance due on your phone and leave.

Don't like this attitude/thinking (No offence).

Reason, you pay everything yourself (Monthly bill is higher with free stuff), "they" DON'T give anything away for free.

I'm in the black Friday deal for the iPhone 7 currently. If upgrade phones I'll be leaving $160+ dollars on the table.

I'm tired of upgrading, and I'm tired of these deals T-Mobile keeps coming up with primarily for "new" customers.

I'm going to try to keep my iPhone 7 for at least another few years.

A good deal, if you are already in the market for a new phone (and are a T-Mobile customer). But I'm planning to stick with my 6S for a couple more years, at least - with a $29 battery replacement scheduled for early December. :D
