T-Mobile gives you $100 if you buy an iPhone and iPad together

Starting today, T-Mobile is offering a $100 prepaid MasterCard card to customers who buy an iPhone and iPad together. The promotion includes the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPad Air, and iPad mini with Retina display, so you have 4 combinations to choose from in order to get $100 back.

T-Mobile doesn’t say when the promotion will end, but John Legere, the carrier’s CEO, was quick to point out on Twitter that this is the “first deal of its kind.”

It looks like the deal is available both in stores, and online - at least that’s what T-Mobile’s official website is suggesting. The deal is certainly a sweet one for all customers who are looking to buy new iOS-based tablets and smartphones from T-Mobile. However, lots of Apple fans are probably waiting for the next-generation iPhone(s) to be unveiled, and may not be interested in getting any of the models from last year. The next-gen iPhone, expected to be called iPhone 6, will likely be officially announced (and launched) this September.

They know they're both overpriced.

Sadly, just like the S5 =( My contract isn't up yet and I don't have that "next" or "jump" contract =/ Oh well, Note 4 anyway!

The S5 gives you so much more for the same price though. No phone is as overpriced as the iPhone...

Not for me. They all do the same thing that I need/want them to do. Text, call, email, apps. I dont use the gimmicks companies pack into their phones. I buy a phone based off its design looks and mostly looks. I love my iPhone 5s because its camera is great and the OS is very fluent and simple, as well as being a very sexy looking phone. The design skin is lovely also. I love my Nexus because of its looks, mostly. Thats what I like about phones. The Note is on my list because I want to sh*t and draw at the same time. Honestly, MOST people just want to snap pics and text/browse the web. Only a handful of people care about the s**t you are always yelling about and causing a comotion on this site about. Really, theyre just phones afterall.

LMAO. Great way to lose even more money on your sinking ship, Legere.

It's an 8.5% discount if you get a 16GB iPhone 5S and an iPad mini retina, less if you get more expensive iDevices. If T-Mobile wants to clear stock of these soon-to-be-less-shiny devices, they need better discounts than this pittance.
