Get a free Samsung Galaxy S9 or S8 with this incredible Costco/T-Mobile deal
Samsung’s latest high-end smartphones have featured prominently on some of the most interesting lists of upcoming Black Friday deals from retailers like Target, Walmart, and Best Buy, but if you’re looking to beat the frenzy, there’s no beating a joint Costco/T-Mobile promotion kicked off earlier today.

Forget $300 gift cards or similarly substantial discounts offered with monthly payment plans for the nation’s most popular carriers. You can basically get a free Galaxy S9 or S8 right now, and the terms and conditions are relatively straightforward.

The first thing you need to do is visit your nearest Costco Warehouse location, where a new Samsung Galaxy S9+, Note 9, S9, or S8 will have to be purchased at its full retail price. Well, technically, you also need a Costco membership, but you probably already knew that.

What you’ll want to do next is activate two lines of T-Mobile voice service (if you’re a new customer) or just one on an existing account with a “qualifying” voice plan. That’s definitely the trickiest part, but believe us, the effort will be well worth the payoff.

Finally, an “eligible” device in “good condition” needs to be traded in for you to maximize your savings. The list includes both new and old phones with high-end specifications, from the Galaxy S6 series to the GS7, GS8, Note 5, Note 8, Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, 2 XL, LG G6, G7, and even the OnePlus 5, 5T, and 6.

With us so far? That’s great, because it’s now time to enjoy your (essentially) free Galaxy S9 or S8. Or get a whopping $750 off the full retail price of the Galaxy S9+ or Note 9. The “fair market value” of your trade-in will be offered as a bill credit first, with the rest of the dough headed your way as a rebate card within 6 to 8 weeks of submitting a claim at the T-Mobile Rebates page using the “COSTCOSAMSUNG” promo code.

This is the worse deal you can get. You have to give your current phone and add a line that you dont need plus you forgot to mention this comes in bill credits witch basically locks you down to a 2 year contract or possibly a 3 year contract

So you need to add a new line (one you didn't already have) and give in an older device (many of which on the list could resell for a few hundred) and this is free?

Or you could buy the S6 on amazon for $150 trade that in for $750 and then sell your device for the balance. Come on think outside the box

If you pay yhe device off early, the bill credits will continue. My tablet was to be a free one, however I paid it off (80bucks left). I've had credita on my account since I paid it. I see no difference here. I could be wrong tho.
