How We Fared on T-Mobile’s Promotion, Sprint’s Offer, and a new Trade-In Offer

Breaking: T-Mobile is bringing back trade-in offers for iPhone, starting on November 24 2016.

Note: T-Mobile has extended their 2 free lines (or 4 lines for $120) promotion until Tuesday, Nov 22, 2016.  

Last week, I highlighted the short-lived  T-Mobile’s 4 lines for $120 limited time promotion.  It was too good of a deal to pass up, especially since the savings are on a recurring basis.  Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who thought the same; there was a steady stream of customers when we visited a local T-Mobile store this weekend.

How did we make out?

We switched in 4 out of 5 lines.   We got an iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus (not in stock), an LG K10 (free phone offer) be credited back over 24 months, a LG K7 (free phone offer).  We’ll switch the 5th line during the Black Friday promotion later this week.

I was happy when we walked out of the store, even though the phone I got (LG K10) is a downgrade from my current device. Still I needed new phones (due to Sprint’s phone incompatibility).  I didn’t want to pay full price, so I couldn’t ask for anything better than a free phone offer!

Missed the Deal?

Fortunately, T-Mobile regularly comes out with other promotions. In addition to the free phone offers mentioned above, T-Mobile has a Samsung Galaxy deal coming up for Black Friday:

“Get a Free Samsung Galaxy 7 after 24 monthly bill credits when customers trade in their Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 5 or other device.”  There is also an additional offer of a Gear VR and $50 Oculus app store gift card when customers buy a Samsung Galaxy 7 or Galaxy 7 Edge.

We have a Samsung Galaxy S5 in our family plan which is not eligible for a “free” upgrade.  The store rep explained the S5 can be traded in with a cost of $100 to get a new Samsung S7 (or $200 for the Samsung 7 Edge).  I don’t know how easy or complex the trade-in process is at T-Mobile, but it’s great to have options to upgrade at a significant discount.

Buyer’s Remorse?

Two day after I switched, I received this email from Sprint.

I generally have very positive things to say about Sprint, though I’m not pleased to have gotten this email.  Where was the offer when I inquired about my options before the switch?

Now that I’m on T-Mobile, I am excited about the recurring monthly savings. I can’t wait to use T-Mobile for international travel, and I am looking forward to trying out the mobile hotspot that comes with the T-Mobile One plan.

I’m happy to say:  No buyer’s remorse here.
