T-Mobile BOGO Going On Right Now For Black Friday!

Well, I hope everyone had an excellent Thanksgiving Day with lots of turkey, stuffing and dessert!  This is your Black Friday reminder that T-Mobile has a BOGO going on starting today and running through January 18th!  If you’ve been eyeing that HD7 or that myTouch4G, this would be a great time to try and convince a family member to do an upgrade along with you!

Reminder: The promotion is available on all T-Mobile family plans, including legacy and Even More, for new customers who activate two or more lines.  Existing T-Mobile customers can take advantage of the BOGO but they will need to add two lines or upgrade an existing eligible line and add a line or upgrade two lines to be eligible.  Flex pay family plan customers do not qualify.  When using the BOGO for the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the customer does not have to be on or activate a family plan, however the “get one” will have to be on a family plan

Double Reminder: The above image is just a pic I used for this post, it is NOT the only combination of phones you can make, mmmkay?

Triple Reminder: Want even better deals?  Remember to check out Wirefly, Amazon, Letstalk, Best Buy or Walmart for some great offers!

    Sweet. I just spoke with a tmobile rep. They told me(and I have it in writing) that I am currently eligible for this promo. I have a family plan. 1 line is eligible for full upgrade. 1 line is only 12months in. They also said I can take part in the promo over the phone or in-store. Just thought I would share.

    • Dubluv4life

      The only way you will be able to do this instore is if your upgrade tenure is at 22months or higher. The customer service reps don’t know how the store operates. You might get lucky if a manager is feeling happy, since they’ll have to do a 300 or so dollar price adjust which goes against the store

      • AJJ

        If there has been full data ($30/whatever flavor) on the line for 12 months and it’s an eligible rate plan (750 minutes or more), it is eligible for the full upgrade discount…at least, that’s how it worked for both my upgrade and my wife’s upgrade in June and July this year…

      • Htein

        It is really up to the store manager.
        My TM store price adjusted my 3 MT4G’s down to 50ea :).

    • not4sakn

      That is wrong information. Both lines must be eligible for full discounts or adding a new line of service to qualify for this deal.

  • MIKEEEEE

    over the last 3 weeks i bought 2 brand new DEFYs. i’m going to see if i can squeeze a BOGO deal out of them. regardless, the DEFY is the best thing for my wife and i since we’ve been here.

  • Bummed

    I went in with only 1 eligible line and no luck on getting 2 phones. They said I had to have 2 lines ready for upgrade. Bummer….

    I called this morning, and the rep I talked to said that the MyTouch 4G wasn’t part of the BOGO promo. But the flyer shows it plain as day! What’s up with that?

    If anyone has read the official announcement on this offer, you’ll see the following:
    “…new and existing customers who sign up for a T-Mobile family plan with a two-year agreement and…”

    Please read the official release here:
    http://press.t-mobile.com/articles/t-mobile-announces-black-friday-bogo

    No where does it mention that existing customers “must be eligable for a new contract/upgrade.” If this promo had been more clear in its target I would not have driven all the way to the store on the worst shopping day of the year to find out that I’m not eligable for it. If you read it as it states, “Existing Customers” period, Then I or anyone should be eligable for this deal. In my opinion this is a classical example of a bait & switch, illegal.

    Not a happy customer of t-mobile after this incident.

      Come on use some common sense here.

      Yes existing customers. But if you have a contract you must honor it. Hell they should have just cancelled your lines for you, charged you EFT and then let you in on this promo for your lack of common sense.

      Bait and switch is offering a product at a certain price point, then actually selling you an inferior product or a higher priced product because they never intended to sell an advertised product.

      In your case there is no bait and switch because well you didn’t even qualify for it.

    Im From Puerto Rico. Today I went to a TMO Store to make a handset upgrade. two weeks ago, they told me that I could make an upgrade because i had more than 12 months. I went today to get my vibrant and TMO told me that they changed their policy and i did not qualify for the max discount.

    I finally called TMO US and they finally honored the offer.

    A little disappointed that Tmobile did have a better Black Friday deal for the G2.

    i love my new my touch 4g and the hspa+ is fast!!!

  • alt-mobile

    On a completely off topic, just want to wish everyone here a Happy Thanksgiving and remind all of us to be thankful and grateful every day for all that we have.

    I’m pretty pissed with this deal. I have a family loyalty plan that has unlimited minutes on 2 lines for 90 bucks (tmobile offered this plan to us without any extension about 1.5 yrs ago). And we have 2 $25 data plans for our G1s and we typically pay about $160 total for the 2 lines.

    We are eligible for this BOGO deal. Walk into the store and it turns out that we have to change to one of their new shittier plans. Ridiculous. So to ”upgrade” I have to either downgrade my plan and get less minutes just to pay the same. Or i can pay $40 more a month to get the unlimited plan that I already have. Same story when we called Tmobile. Havent tried speaking to the retentions department yet but it looks like I”m gonna have to do that.

    • moneyman

      That shouldn’t even be the case. At the worse case scenario, you may have to switch your data plan to $30 instead of $25, but your plan changes shouldn’t be required as the system allows you to overlook that and get through to the actual transaction without having to change your rate plan. If for some reason, they say you have to get a new plan, look at the promotional offer of $149.99, which includes 3K mins/Unlimited text and web (I know its not unlimited mins).

      • http://twitter.com/victors Victor

        I tried arguing for them to just give me the $30 plan and it didnt quite work. The particular rep I was dealing with at the store had a lot of trouble figuring out what to do and she even called up the CSRs and it didnt work. I guess it just didnt work in the system. I’ll probably try again at a different store.

        • NEVER_PRESSED_4_IT

          HI VICTOR,

          Call 611 express your nature of the call then ask to speak to the costumer loyalties department and see what they can do for you. Also t-mobile service plans have changed I have 5 lines on one account and 3 on another account on the 5 line account I’m on the even more plus plan and I belong to a organization that t-mobile gives a 10% discount for that. With the 5 lines I have 3 on unlimited & web the other 2 lines I have on just 200 minutes per month with free night and weekends unlimited text mobile to mobile. My total bill for the month for 5 lines is 250- 255 so that’s not bad for me at all, yet good reps will find a plan that works for you and remember your the costumer ask question until you get a satisfying answer. Wish you luck :)

        • Sarah

          you cant get a mcsa discount on an even more plus plan. fact.

    • Blablabla

      oh god please do not be one of those troubling customers that call tmobile and give us your bullshit and how pissed you are that you can’t get the BOGO deal without a rate plan change. The policies are the policies. Stop trying you get a fuckin deal without giving a little on your end. Tmobile already hooked you up by giving you unlimited loyalty in the first place. It’s people like you that piss us CSRs off.

      • http://twitter.com/victors Victor

        Actually whether I get the BOGO or not doesnt even matter. If you are on a grandfathered plan you are SOL. If I even want to upgrade PERIOD, I have to get the more expensive rate plan which is just ridiculous. Any savings from the BOGO are wiped out because I would have to pay over 40 bucks more a month.

        • Bleh

          Well you are not SOL majority of customers that have unlimited minutes dont ever need unlimited, and I had never had that problem before. And Blablabla if your a T-mobile Rep that is horrible customer service

      • NEVER_PRESSED_4_IT

        Are you a customer service rep.? if T-mobile doesn’t have customers then that means you don’t have a job no job mean no money to pay your bills etc. Most of the policies t-mobile have depend on the rep you may speak with I’ve found that most of the time when calling some of the reps don’t even know the policies of the company they work for. This is why when I call and the answer that is given to me and I’m not satisfied with the answer I asked to speak with the team leader or the supervisor. Oh one more thing always get the reps name and the id # along with after the 2-5 minutes in conversation with the rep it will automatically start to record the call. Oh yeah blablabla for costumers who are offered the costumer loyalty is because we pay our bills on time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! to have that privilege

    Is there anyone who didnt go shopping today?

  • Donkey

    Walmart in ZIP19401 is selling G2 for $150 and Vibrant for $79. And of course, they are all out of stock from $100 gift card offer for purchasing smart phones. But the prices are better than T-Mobile store.

    • Bleh

      You should try to get your tmobile store to try to price match the phone from walmart for the first handset and give you the other one for 50 =) (Free after the rebate)

  • Brontegirl

    Unfortunately, those activating a new phone or swapping sim cards will have no service for the foreseeable future. They said the delay would be two hours last night and now they won’t give a time. I asked, a week, two weeks, a month, a year? The rep would even commit to within a year. This is complete nonsense. I’ve been a tmo customer since the beginning and even when they were voicestream. I’ve never experienced any issues until they launched their 4g network. I’m researching other providers.

    • Chatter

      Sorry for all your troubles and hope it gets fixed soon. I just swapped a sim into the MT4G as part of my upgrade and it works fine. I also used that same sim into an older Samsung (not data) phone. Can you please provide more details on what exactly the issue is?

  • face

    can you only get these deals in the store?

  • Rsimmons37

    I am in your same boat. The 3000 plan is though and despite using my phone for business we have never gone over 3k. We are thinking of adding our son as a 3rd line and under the old loyalty plan it would have cost MORE. The 3k plan is a very nice addition.

    We tried to take advantage of this on Friday but our experience was pretty bad.

    Went to one T-Mobile store and the sales girl was very helpful but they did not have any G2′s in stock. She directed us to another store a few miles up the road.

    In the second store they had a G2 as well as a MT4G for my wife but the sales guy was a total dick:

    1. Went on and on talking about T-Mobiles “4G” network even after I informed about the ITU specifications for 4G and how none of the carriers had real 4G and that I was aware that the “4G” label was just a marketing device.
    2. Informed me in a flippant manner that we would not be able to get my wife on the $15/mo 200MB data plan and that she would have to get the $30 data plan.
    3. Tried to tell me I would actually be saving money by getting the $30 data plan even after I did the math for him (would have cost $160 more over 2 years than paying $200 and getting the $15/mo plan)

    We did end up getting our phones, we got them at Costco which presented it’s own challenge in that they screwed up my data plan, first they replaced my G1 data plan with the $30/mo plan and then they added the G1 data plan back but did not remove the $30/mo plan. And of course to top it off on Friday there was apparently a data outage which meant I couldn’t even set up the phone until I got home where there was a WiFi connection.

  • wyip

    I just took advantage of this deal for my wife and I. My wife was mid-contract with a Touch Pro2 but I was up for renewal with my G1. I spoke to the assistant store manager and he hooked me up by overriding my wife’s renewal date so we both walked out with G2s. He swapped our SIM cards and we were both up and running with no issues at all.

    • wyip

      Also, we got to keep our grandfathered MyFaves plan. The only thing that changed was my $24.99 G1 plan became the $30 4G data plan. No biggie.

  • asdf

    will someone clarify this sentence for me?
    “…or upgrade an existing eligible line and add a line or upgrade two lines to be eligible.”

    Does that mean if I upgrade 1 line, I have to upgrade 2 more on the same plan?
    or
    Upgrade 1 line and then upgrade the second?

  • asdf

    ALSO,

    1 of the lines are already eligible for an upgrade but the second one isn’t.
    If I just pay the upgrade fee for the second line can I still get the BOGO deal?
