T-Mobile has by far the best perks and benefits among the big four carriers
CEO John Legere can sometimes go overboard with his contempt for Verizon and AT&T, often dubbed “dumb and dumber” as T-Mo’s skipper attempts to highlight the weaknesses and greed of the industry’s duopoly.
Then again, it’s hard to argue with the incredible value offered by the impressively affordable T-Mobile One plan. We’re not just talking unlimited talk, text, and data for $70 a month on a single line, as Strategy Analytics, a market research firm in no way affiliated with T-Mobile, has found an additional $1,550.71 is available in annual perks and benefits. Yup, one thousand, five hundred and fifty dollars. US.
Of course, all carriers include certain little extras and freebies in their standard subscription prices. For instance, AT&T’s Unlimited & More Premium plan comes with a choice of HBO, Starz, Showtime, Cinemax, Amazon Music Unlimited, or Pandora Premium access on the house. Meanwhile, Verizon throws in complimentary cloud storage and a few international TravelPasses for “Above Unlimited” customers.
But that doesn’t come close to what T-Mobile is offering without actually charging a dime. Not only do you get free Netflix (chill not included) with two or more lines of wireless service, but also a whole other range of cool (and practical) deal sweeteners, like MLB.TV subscriptions, Scam ID functionality, or Gogo In-flight Internet access.
All this stuff obviously adds up without you even realizing, although arguably the greatest perk you get just for being a T-Mobile user is the Tuesdays freebie program. Each and every week, popular brands like Dunkin’ Donuts, Shell, Live Nation, Pandora, and 20th Century Fox join forces with T-Mo to extend the carrier’s thanks for subscribing, and at least in theory, that can amount to a whopping $966 this year alone.
It goes without saying how unrealistic it is to expect anyone to claim all the T-Mobile Tuesdays gifts, so realistically speaking, the extra value actual T-Mobile One subscribers get is significantly lower. But the included taxes and fees are cool, saving you an estimated $66.96 a year on average, while the unlimited data and texting offered in over 210 countries around the world under the Simple Global banner is worth about $85.
