: The big game is over (congrats, Buccs fans), but T-Mobile's huge 5G giveaway is scheduled to go on until 11:59 pm PT on Monday, February 8. That means you still have plenty of time to retweet one of Magenta's Sweepstakes announcement tweets here
for a chance to win one of 300 (three hundred!) Samsung Galaxy S21+
Obviously, you can retweet them both for two giveaway entries, but that's it, that's the limit per participant
. No automated devices allowed, no hateful or otherwise problematic content, and if you choose to quote-retweet any one of the two giveaway announcement tweets, don't forget to include the hashtags #Sweepstakes and #LeaderIn5G.
The 300 grand prize winners will be randomly selected on Tuesday, February 9, "on or about" 9 am PT, from all eligible entries received during the promotion period. Fingers crossed, everybody!
We're only a few hours away from Super Bowl kickoff at the time of this writing, and just because T-Mobile seemingly spent many millions of dollars on not one and not two but three "big game"-themed commercials, that doesn't mean customers will be excluded from the "Un-carrier's" undoubtedly elaborate and multi-layered publicity stunts today.
After brilliantly generating a great deal of Twitter buzz on Friday for the two costly TV ads set to air during tonight's clash between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers by showing off a third commercial banned from Super Bowl LV
, Magenta is now teasing something that might be of even greater interest for many of its subscribers.
We're talking about some sort of "5G giveaway" (yup, another one
), but unfortunately, that's all we can say for certain until the big game actually kicks off. Of course, because Samsung's 5G-enabled Galaxy S21+
is featured (along with a magenta-tinted football) in the 13-second teaser video posted on Twitter earlier today, it's safe to assume a number of T-Mo customers will score the hot new 6.7-inch powerhouse for free... somehow.
The official rules of the giveaway are unavailable at the moment, so we obviously can't tell you how many people will be thanked by the "Un-carrier"... yet again
for helping it surpass AT&T in terms of subscriber numbers and end 2020 on a high
, inching closer and closer to Verizon.
As always, T-Mobile
is going above and beyond trying to hype up the contest, promising to go "even BIGGER" than last year, when a grand total of 60 Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G units were given away for free
during Kansas City Chiefs' historic comeback to defeat the San Francisco 49ers in a packed Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
Naturally, this year's Super Bowl will be radically different from any such game played in the past, but apparently, some things are set to change for the better. If you like free 5G-capable high-end phones, you'll want to keep an eye on T-Mobile's Twitter feed and its official #LeaderIn5G hashtag over the next few hours for the full details and instructions.
