Deal: All T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S10 models are $390 off (new line required)
T-Mobile just unveiled what's arguably the best Samsung Galaxy S10 deal currently available in the US. While deals at other carriers - including Verizon and AT&T - require you to purchase two Galaxy S10 phones (and pay monthly bills for both) in order to get one of them for free, T-Mobile is simply taking $390 off any S10 model if you add a new line of service on a 24-month or a 36-month Equipment Installment Plan. You do not need to purchase two devices or trade in an old smartphone.

According to T-Mobile, both existing and new customers are eligible for this Galaxy S10 offer, but you can't qualify for it if you want to buy your phone outright. Savings of $390 will not be instant, being offered only as monthly bill credit, normally "by your second bill cycle." 

As you probably know, the Samsung Galaxy S10 series hasn't been released yet. But pre-orders at T-Mobile (and many other places) have been available since earlier this week. T-Mobile says that, if you place a pre-order now, it may ship your Galaxy S10 as early as March 6, although the series' official launch date is March 8. 

Pre-order the Galaxy S10 series here at T-Mobile  

For your convenience, here are all the Samsung Galaxy S10 models that T-Mobile lets you pre-order (outright prices and color variants included):
  • Galaxy S10e 128 GB - $749.99 (Flamingo Pink, Prism Black, Prism White, Prism Blue)
  • Galaxy S10e 256 GB - $849.99 (Prism Black, Prism White, Prism Blue)
  • Galaxy S10 128 GB - $899.99 (Flamingo Pink, Prism Black, Prism White, Prism Blue)
  • Galaxy S10 512 GB - 1,149.99 (Prism Black, Prism White, Prism Blue)
  • Galaxy S10+ 128 GB - $999.99 (Flamingo Pink, Prism Black, Prism White, Prism Blue)
  • Galaxy S10+ 512 GB - $1,249.99 (Ceramic Black, Ceramic White)
  • Galaxy S10+ 1 TB - $1,599.99 (Ceramic Black, Ceramic White)

While T-Mobile's Galaxy S10 deal doesn't necessarily require a trade in, if you do have an old phone that you want to bring in you will get extra credit - up to $390 (in addition to the $390 credit offered if you add a new line on a monthly Equipment Installment Plan). Full terms and conditions for this Galaxy S10 promotional offer, including a list of handsets eligible for trade in, can be found here at T-Mobile.

I think preorder sales did not meet Expectations. S10 is a good phone. But it's too expensive.

Lol T-Mobile has been doing this since they started pre orders on the S10. This promo is not an indicator on how well it's selling.

The T-Mobile site says it's one deal or the other, not both. How to get this offer: 1. Purchase one of the Samsung Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, or Galaxy S10+ 2. Add a qualifying line OR trade in an eligible device. Save $390 when you add a qualifying line, OR Save $390 when you trade in one of these devices in good condition:

No, both is possible. From the faq: "If I trade in my device and add a new line of service for this promotion, will I receive more than $390 back? Yes. If you trade in a device and add a new line of service, you will receive the value of your device upfront as a one-time trade-in credit and $390 for the Galaxy S10 promotion over 24 to 36 months, bringing your total received value over $390."

American are so lucky when it comes to Smart phone deals and Carrier subsidies. I wish we had such kind of deals here too instead of having to pay full amount to purchase any smartphone.

Make no mistake, American monthly plans are pretty expensive though. There's no free lunch. For a similar data plan and line, I pay more than twice as much in the US as I used to pay in the Netherlands. So those crazy deals are really coming out of our own pockets.

So in essence you ould get $780 off of an S10. Of it was a S10e would they owe you money? Would you have to pay anything on the phone or would it just pay for service? I might have to look into this
