Get a $250 Costco gift card with the purchase of a T-Mobile branded high-end Samsung phone
Membership warehouse club Costco usually has great prices for its members who buy in bulk. If you're the type that needs to buy 50 boxes of Fruit Loops at one time, or likes to stuff the bathroom with 25 rolls of toilet paper at once, then it is possible that you are a member. If not, keep in mind that you need to be one to take advantage of the following deal.

Buy the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ or the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and you will receive a $250 gift card from the store. While details are sketchy, it appears that you need to use an installment plan to purchase the phones, and have a Simple Choice plan. It isn't clear if you have to be a new T-Mobile subscriber or if an existing customer can qualify for the gift card.

The deal runs through November 30th, and buyers will also be eligible to receive some extra stuff from Samsung. Purchase one of the four previously mentioned Samsung phones by December 13th and you can choose one of two accessory bundles, each with a retail value of $299. One is the Swarovski Holiday Bundle and the other is the Level On Holiday Bundle. Also, if you buy one of those four phones and sign up for Samsung Pay by December 31st, you will receive a $50 rebate. To sign up for the mobile payment service, simply register a credit or a debit card to use with the service.

You can not use Jump on Demand @ Costco, Only Jump 1 or Jump 2. There is no deposit @ costco. You only pay the tax. Depending on the state of course (CA is Tax only). The $250 is good on an EIP installment for New or Upgrades.

The previous deal at Costco was get a $150 Costco cash card and a Samsung wireless charger. If you preregistered interest for the Note5 at Samsung's website, you get 1 year of Netflix free. Then, you register with Samsung Pay and you get another Samsung wireless charger. I got this deal two months ago. I say this deal is better than the current deal when you factor in the $150 card, 1 year of Netflix, and two wireless chargers.

$700 retail price of phone on T-Mo - $250 Costco Card - $50 Samsung Pay activation - $300 accessory bundle = $100 net. Although in reality the accessory bundle is not anywhere near $300 in value, you could probably get $100 on eBay/Craigslist for the accessories. $300 net for the phone after $400 cash/Costco card. Then turn around and sell the phone on Swappa/Craigslist for about $500. You've made $200 cash + $400 = $600! You'll probably have to sign up for a month of T-Mo service = $50 for cheapest plan I think = $550 net!

Good luck buying this to flip it. Your profit figures are too inflated and optimistic. 699.99 for 32Gb plus tax @8% tax=$755.98. You must pay $100 deposit plus the tax on the value of phone at the register $155.98. Then you mail in the rebate for the cash card and wait weeks for it. Meanwhile you signed up for a minimum service plan that qualifies you for the phone at that price. Not $30, 50, I say at least $70 plus tax and fees or $80 total a month. Within that month you have to pay off the remaining balance on the phone minus the $100 deposit on the phone or $599.98. You spent 755.98 + 80 = 835.98 835.98 -$250 rebate = $585.98 That accessory pack is junk and doubt it is worth anything (low quality mA car charger). So how do you profit from this unless you don't pay off the phone and sell a phone with a bad ESN to some poor fool? LOL.

The Level On headphones go for at least $80 on eBay and $20 for the charger. I can put it on my plan which I have already. I brought all my phones BYOP. Might want to check your math again. Oh and I can buy the phone in Oregon 0 sales tax :)

I've been wondering what the Costco deals are now under the new plans with monthly payments for phones. Good to see they're still doing something.

Where was this deal this past August when I was switching over to T-Mobile from Verizon and I had to purchase 4 new handsets?

Who knows but more importantly I wonder if you can do this with jump on demand, since you're just leasing the phone.

I believe you can, once a month as long as you make one payment on that device

Good question, but definitely digging the Android 18 pic.
