T-Mobile announces BOGO deal for Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
Yesterday, AT&T announced a (rather complicated) BOGO deal involving the receipt of what ultimately would be a free Samsung Galaxy S7. This morning, T-Mobile introduced its BOGO deal for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. The deal starts tomorrow and includes those who already purchased, or will purchase either model via a pre-order.

T-Mobile's BOGO deal requires you to add a new line, and purchase either phone using an EIP. That means that the 32GB Samsung Galaxy S7 in Black Onyx and Gold Platinum will cost you $0 down, and $27.92 a month over 24 months. The 32GB Samsung Galaxy S7 edge in Black Onyx, Silver Titanium and Gold Platinum will cost you $59.99 down, and $30 a month over 24 months.

T-Mobile will reimburse you for the free phone by sending you a rebate for the full retail price of both models. That is much different than AT&T's BOGO deal, which reimburses customers $23 over 30 months, just enough to cover the Samsung Galaxy S7 (the buyer is responsible for the remaining cost if he wants to buy a Galaxy S7 edge).

In addition to the BOGO deal, which is limited to two free phones, those purchasing the Galaxy S7 through March 18th from the nation's third largest carrier are entitled to a free Gear VR headset, six free games, and one year of Netflix for free.

If you're looking to surprise your significant other, or your kids, with a Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, you might want to take advantage of T-Mobile's BOGO offer. Remember, it is good for a limited time only.

These BOGO 'deals' and all the freebies that Samsung is handing out to S7 and S7 Edge and Samsung Pay users, etc, is really starting to make them look like a cheap brand. Add to the mix all the carrier bulls**t buyers must contend with (insane bloatware, disabling certain apps according to carrier whim, witness Smart Manager and Samsung Pay) and it's easy to see why, awesome camera and screen notwithstanding on most Samsung phones, that people just simply prefer the iPhone way of doing things. Sorry, no freebies to cheapen the Apple brand and no carrier interference allowed! Samsung please take note, your desperation is showing, big time.

It's not a Samsung issue, or even Samsung deal. It's a T-mobile deal and they will get money back from you one way or another. If you studies Economics you would know that there is no free meal. Also the bloatware and Samsung pay issues are carrier related.

In my country, voice calls and text cost less than a tenth of the prices in US. Now you probably know where T-mo will get the money.

Blame your carriers, not the manufacturer. And if you want, you can totally go with a European variant. It will get you rid of all your issues.

If you want your phone manufacturer to rip you off by charging extravagant amount and give no freebies, totally go with iPhones. Apple will totally milk your money, their profit margins show that.

You are obviously delusional if you think the carriers that are participating in these BOGO schemes aren't being subsidized by Samsung to make such an offer possible. As for Apples profit margin, Samsung would kill to be able to boast those figures. And trust me, if Samsung had a legion of loyal followers like Apple does, that buy their products consistently, then Samsung too would stop all these incentives in a hot second. Samsung is not making these deals out of the goodness of their hearts. Think about it.

If Samsung had the BOGO scheme, it would be available at all carriers. Samsung provides T-mobile phones at a specified rate. It's T-mo's decision how much profit they want from that, or how do they want to milk money from its customers.

Obviously Samsung can't have a say in which plan should T-mobile ask for for this promotion.

"And trust me, if Samsung had a legion of loyal followers like Apple does, that buy their products consistently, then Samsung too would stop all these incentives in a hot second."

That's absolutely true. But in that case, Samsung will jack the price and then offer these schemes. Gear VR and other offers are to promote their services. If a person gets hooked to VR, he will get a sweet spot for Samsung the next time he buys a phone.

It's all about making a long term relationship with the customer, a thing which Apple excels in.

no it's t-mobiles decision to look at pre-orders and see that they are lackluster, then look at how many orders they have reserved in advance from Samsung and make the decision to offer a BOGO, regarless of a loss, it's the line access that they are betting on. You have to get a NEW line to get the BOGO offer. Same applies for ATT

Let's wait and see first bub if rumors are true about Apple axing the headphone jack. If true, I imagine sales will suffer

It is a Samsung issue in that it reflects on their brand image regardless of who offers the promotion.

Suppose TMobile ran an ad that said "Samsung makes the sh*ttiest phones ever!" Whether that was a Samsung-run ad or not it would reflect on their image, and you'd bet TMobile would be hearing from Samsung real fast.

Just because T-Mobile is running the promo doesn't mean Samsung has no influence on them, though I personally don't think Samsung should intervene at any rate, and I don't think this is going to reflect as negatively on Samsung as OP suggests.

Obviously if T-mo does something that 'negatively affects the sales', Samsung will interfere, but as long as it's all good, why should Samsung interfere.

T-Mobile just got done doing a "BOGO" with the IPhone included in that deal. Just thought I would leave this here.

Agreed, that's because Apple is already giving their customers the Buy One Get Screwed Free (BOGSF) deal with great success.

Exactly. These deals are awesome any way you look at it. If this was At&t deal I'd just roll my eyes. Reason being, AT&T phones come with Locked bootloaders and never see root. T-mobile on the other hand, it's like they actually let you own your phone. Root, custom roms, and continuous support from the dev community for years.

I was thinking of getting the S7 anyway. This is a great deal to lower the cost. By getting an extra line, then cancelling it a month or two later, and selling one of the S7 edge's online, and selling the Gear VR headset, paying off the remaining balances due on both S7 Egde's and getting the $779.99 Prepaid card for the free phone, you end up spending about $250-$300 to keep one S7 Edge, sell everything else, cancel the extra line from T-Mobile, and have all balances paif off. Great deal!!!

http://www.anandtech.com/show/10120/the-samsung-galaxy-s7-review/3

Just saw the review on Anandtech. The read/write on the storage memory in the S7 edge is slow. Real slow. Slower than the S6, and much slower than the ifone 6s+. The ifone has 2x sequential read and almost 3x sequential write over the S7 edge. What?!?! What about this overhyped UFS 2.0?

Battery life? 30% bigger battery than ifone but only 5% (30 min) more juice. WTF?!?!?!

Stupid Samsung or stupid Snapdragon? Regardless, now I see why Samsung needs to give these things away. What a disaster.

And did you actually read the caption under that chart on Anandtech?

"Interestingly enough despite using full disk encryption on the Galaxy S7, we don’t really see a noticeable degradation in performance relative to the Galaxy S6 which is good to see "
