T-Mobile says thank you to those who defend the country with huge military discounts of up to 50%

As a way to say thank you to the men and women defending the U.S., T-Mobile today introduced T-Mobile ONE Military. This plan includes everything offered with T-Mobile ONE, with a price that is 20% to 50% off the regular cost of the service. The nation's third largest carrier says that this is the biggest military discount offered in the industry today. In addition, those serving in the military can pick up the Samsung Galaxy S9, Samsung Galaxy S9+ or Samsung Galaxy S8 Active for half price. 

With the military discount, the first line receives a 20% discount that takes the price down to $55/month with AutoPay, compared to the usual $70 monthly rate. The second line is $25/month (50% off), with lines three through six priced at $10/month (50% off). Again, AutoPay is required to receive these savings. By the carrier's calculations, a family of four can save $665 a year compared to AT&T's military promotion, and $764 annually compared to Verizon's discounted plan for the military.

As far as the phones are concerned, the military discount on the handsets works like this. Purchase either model at the current price using the carrier's Equipment Installment Plan, and each month (for 24 months) a credit will appear on the invoice to cover half of the phone's price. There is a limit of three discounted phones per account.

T-Mobile also pledged to recruit 10,000 veterans and military spouses over the next five years. For 11 years, T-Mobile has been listed as a Top 100 Military Friendly Employer by Military Friendly, and has received 20 military honors for the benefits it offers its employees who serve the country.

T-Mobile ONE Military will be available at T-Mobile stores and selected military bases starting on April 22nd. Included in the offer are active duty military, Reserve, National Guard, veterans, and Gold Star families, plus the small businesses they own (up to 12 voice lines).

Defending the US from who? Canada?

Defend their country from what? More like doing the dirty work for their country in waging wars in other people's countries. To hell with them and their discounts.

I welcome this change with open arms and I tip my hat to them for such a great initiative. At the end of the day, though, they're a business and the objective is to maximize profits so I can't help but wonder what is the underlying rationale behind it all.

Underlying rationale is for consumers to look highly upon TMobile. Right now it's mostly coverage and price that factor the decision.

They need something to deflect the story of them sumbitting fake dial tones to callers in rural areas so that the callers think their calls are going through but really nothing is happening... Well played T-Mobile.
