T-Mobile doubles its size; rewards customers with stock and weekly freebies

T-Mobile doubles its size; rewards customers with stock and weekly freebies
T-Mobile has doubled in size from 33 million subscribers to 66 million. T-Mobile CEO John Legere says that while other carriers give you attitude, T-Mobile gives you gratitude. Starting tomorrow, the nation's third largest carrier will thank customers by starting a program called T-Mobile Tuesdays that will give away freebies like a medium two toppings pizza from Domino's, a frosty from Wendy's, and a video from Vudu. If you have a T-Mobile account, go to the App Store or Google Play Store and download the T-Mobile Tuesdays app to begin amassing these freebies.

As we said, the freebies start tomorrow, and everyone participating will receive a free ticket to see the movie Warcraft. Every Tuesday, T-Mobile will be giving away stuff including some "Epic Prizes." T-Mobile Tuesdays is available for all of the operator's customers.

In addition, starting June 21st T-Mobile's Stock Up program becomes effective. Postpaid customers with at least one line of voice service from June 7th through December 31st of this year, are eligible to receive one share of T-Mobile common stock valued at approximately $43 (taking a shot at Sprint, Legere noted that his company's shares are trading for more than 50 cents). For every person referred to T-Mobile who signs up with the carrier for at least 15-days, participants will receive another share. And if they have been a T-Mobile customer for at least five years, they will receive two shares for each referral. The stock is held in a free account opened with LOYAL3; there are no fees to sell or to transfer the shares for one year.

Lastly, starting on June 13th, T-Mobile customers get a free hour of Gogo Wi-Fi on any flight that carries the service.

Freebies each Tuesday, free stock, and free in-flight Wi-Fi all add up to make Un-carrier 11 the best Un-carrier announcement yet for T-Mobile customers.

Wow, Looks like it's time for a switch. T-Mobile coming on strong I would hope AT&T and Verizon would be force to lower their rates or give some freebies away too to be competitive with t-mobile or else if this continues T-Mobile will be the largest us carrier in a couple of years.

Look like my hope for a chance to switch is dead. Expect profits to drop sharply in next few months. T-Mo's debt will go up fast if they keep giving away "free stuffs". Nothing is ever free.

In the literal sense that you are a paying T-Mobile customer and the company has to pay for these promotional deals, it is not free. But if it's not an additional costs on top of what you were already paying per month, then in effect you are not paying anything extra to take advantage of whatever they are giving you. But if I'm understanding what you're saying, you aren't going to switch to T-Mobile because they're giving you more for your money? I think you're the first person I've ever seen that thinks that way. And sure, plenty of things are free. Maybe not material goods, but you can do a lot of things without paying a dime.

If he's the first person you're meet who thinks like that, you must not work in cellular sales. I do, and when I try to explain new plans and the payment plans everyone offers, and that sometimes they literally save hundreds every year (mostly big accounts that save that much), and get more data, and they say, "no I don't want to change my plan."

sure nothing is free however when companies do these type of things, They are getting it DIRT CHEAP. They make a contract with these other company at a fraction of the price. Then you have the possibility to run into promotions like Wendey frosties, If you are going go out of your way to get a free $1 frostie There is a good chance you are going buy a burger and a fry to go with it along with anyone else in the car.

THIS me and my roommate went out for the frosties. It was close to 100 degrees. We finished the free ones and decided to buy 2 more lol He took the pizza, splurged a bit for extra toppings He took the movie, splurged a bit for the HD rental (55 in tv, can't do standard unless you want your eyes to bleed) I took the movie ticket, bought 2 more for my friends on cricket. I don't HAVE to buy into this extra stuff, nor does he, but we do, therefore it's already profitable for the companies involved.
