T-Mobile is taking up to $750 off certain Apple iPhone models, up to $360 off certain Samsung phones
T-Mobile wants you to kick off the new year in grand fashion, sporting a new Apple iPhone or Samsung Galaxy handset. You'll be the envy of your social set, especially when they learn how much you saved with these deals. Keep in mind that both of these are limited time offers, although T-Mobile has yet to announce an expiration date for either one.

Here is how they work. Let's start first with the iPhone; You can get a free Apple iPhone 8 or Apple iPhone XR, or up to $750 off the price of the iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max. The device you buy must be purchased on T-Mobile's Equipment Installment Plan (EIP). New customers must purchase two voice lines and existing customers must add one additional voice line. Trade in a paid off iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, or iPhone 6s Plus in good condition, and the discount will be applied as 24 or 36 monthly bill credits.

For example, buy the 64GB iPhone XS Max for only $349.99 down. In this example, the $750 is divided into 36-monthly bill credits of $20.84 each, which will completely cover what would have been the monthly payments due to T-Mobile. In other words, if all of the conditions are met, you are paying $349.99 plus tax for the 64GB iPhone XS Max.

As for the Samsung Galaxy deal, you purchase a Samsung Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Active, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, or a Galaxy Note 9. The purchase must be done using an EIP. Activate the phone on any postpaid T-Mobile voice plan, and trade in a qualifying device. The amount you receive for the trade will be turned into 24-36 monthly bill credits. The qualifying trades include:

Receive $360 in monthly bill credits for trading in:

Receive $250 in monthly bill credits for trading in:

Receive $150 in monthly bill credits for trading in:

Both deals are available in-store and online. Use the promo code 2DAY with a new activation to get free 2-day shipping.

If you have a Costco near you, you can get the same discounts but they will give you a lump sum prepaid debit card instead of monthly discounts. This is much better as you can cancel that extra line after you receive your debit card a couple of months after purchase.

I smell desperation to move inventory.

People should be patient. There's still another crop of phones coming in 6-9 months from just about every phone maker. Plenty of inventory will still be around and they'll be clearing these phones out all year so the new ones have stock preference. Apple hasn't figured out that it's not just price - it's also features and iOS. OS-reliability, split-screen, multi-tasking, and app-tweaks are what they should focus on now. That would jump sales more effectively than sales promotions because it would address "why upgrade/buy now" instead of "is this too much still?"

Why is it always adding a new line of service? I’d be happy if the discount was $100-$200 less but allowed existing lines to take part in the promotion.

I agree, they’re all very daft

I'm sorry. I would never finance a phone from any US carrier. T mobile used to be an exception. No more.

Care to say why?

Because it's essentially a contact, your phone is locked to the carrier, and with t mobile nowadays they ask for around 200 dollars up front and repayment over three years (I can pay off earlier, but still must pay a considerable amount up front). Unlocked phones that I purchase outright, such as the OnePlus or even Unlocked Samsung devices give the user greater freedom and no bloat.

How often do you switch carriers? It doesn't matter if you plan on staying with them for the amount of time the contract is for. Also like you said you can also just pay it off if you need to move on.

You can't just pay it off. You have to keep that extra line open.
