T-Mobile pulls the LG G6 BOGO deal in the US for reasons unknown

T-Mobile and LG announced a few days ago a promotion on the latter's flagship, the G6, which will run through May 10 to June 8. The promotional offer would allow customers to buy one LG G6 at full price and receive another one for free.

Even though consumers would have to pay for both phones, LG would send a rebate in the form of a $500 electronic check by email after approximately six weeks.

Well, it looks that the BOGO deal offer on the LG G6 has been pulled by T-Mobile and is no longer available on its website. The carrier issued an internal document addressed to T-Mobile stores reps, which confirms that the promotion for the LG G6 “has been pulled and cannot be honored.”

The reasons for LG's decision are unknown, but perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Samsung has kicked off a similar BOGO deal on the Galaxy S8 and S8+. We don't even know which of the two companies have decided to pull the promotion, or if it was a mutual decision.

Regardless, if you previously planned to grab the LG G6 and take advantage of the BOGO deal at the same time, then you're out of luck. Perhaps the promotion will be re-enabled in the coming weeks, so you might want to refrain from getting the phone for a little while.

returned my s8 plus. Red tinted screen was annoying AF. Got the LG G6 and the girl at the tmobile store gave me a cheap free screen protector , so not complaining here haha. So far so good . No probs at all.

Could it be an application that you installed on both? Most likely wakelocking the device so it doesn't sleep properly.

Per internal communications sent yesterday "this promotion is unauthorized and is not valid in any t-mobile branded stores across the US and Puerto Rico....Until LG can restore confidence in field promotional activity, I am asking that all field-based promotional and advertising activity to immediately stop until further notice......I am disappointed in how this was done and we will have conversations with LG to ensure this does not happen again in the future."

Why does t-mobile care? This is LG's promo. They better honor it or there will be lots of returns and unhappy customers.lol

If this had an amoled screen it would be a pretty perfect phone

If it had AMOLED, then it would also be Daydream VR compatible as well.

was debating on getting in on this deal... because I just go a new phone 6 months ago. Now I don't have to decided! But wonder why they pulled it though.

It's still good on LG site. The promo is sponsored by LG and not t-mobile
