T-Mobile customers choosing certain phones for the 4G Super Sale can save up to $200

T-Mobile customers choosing certain phones for the 4G Super Sale can save up to $200
Yes, those choosing T-Mobile's Value Plan have to pay the full retail price for their new phone. Of course, that price is divided into 21 monthly payments with no interest. And with the carrier's 4G Super Sale this weekend, prices of some of these models have been discounted. And customers who choose a Value Plan during the sale will receive a mail-in rebate of $50 to $300.

When you are paying full retail for a phone, it is hard to see where the savings come in, but a leaked chart made for T-Mobile reps shows that there are 5 devices that will have a monthly Equipment Installment Program monthly rate of $20 after an increase on December 17th and 18th. The leaked screenshot below was obtained by Tmo News and was sent to reps to show them how to sell a phone with a $20 EIP by revealing to a customer how much he can save with the 4G Super Sale this weekend.

Let's take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G as an example of how this will work. The normal full retail price of $529.99 is being raised to $599.99 during the 4G Super Sale (Yeah, we know). In the meantime, those who choose the Value Plan will grab a $200 mail-in rebate. That results in $130 in savings to the customer.

Of the 5 devices with the $20 EIP, the BlackBerry Bold 9800 offers the biggest savings with a $200 savings while the lowest savings at $100 is for the HTC Sensation 4G.
