T-Mobile will give you $100 for buying a Samsung phone and tablet together

Note 4

A couple of days ago we got wind of an offer coming our way from T-Mobile. The deal, in essence, was incentivizing the purchase of both a Samsung Galaxy tablet and phone. From today, customers buying Galaxy tablets with smartphones will be able to claim $100 back.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Buy, add a new line to your account or upgrade to a Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Note 4 or Galaxy Note Edge
  • Within 30 days of that purchase, buy a Galaxy Tab S or Galaxy Tab 4
  • Both devices must be bought on T-Mobile’s EIP (Equipment Installment Plan)
  • Both devices need to have a qualifying postpaid service plan
  • The tablet plan needs to be 1GB or higher (includes Match Your Data plan)
  • Within 8 weeks of the second purchase, you’ll get a $100 T-Mobile Prepaid MasterCard

Needless to say, this offer is only available for a limited time, and T-Mobile doesn’t state when it’s going to be pulled.

As far as offers go, it’s not the worst. Especially not if you were already planning on buying a new Samsung phone and tablet soon. But if you weren’t, it’s hard to see the real benefit. Sure, you get $100 back on a card, but you have to buy two devices which – together – will cost you a minimum of $980 full retail and a maximum of $1,610 (spread over two years). What’s more, you’ll also need to sign up to a plan for each one.

Just in case you’re interested, here are the product pages for each device available on the offer.

Let us know if you’re planning on taking advantage of the offer, or, if you just see it as an attempt from T-Mobile to get you to buy a tablet you were never interested in.

    AT&T is offering a free Galaxy Tab 4 with the purchase of a Galaxy s6/s6 Edge…give me that deal, Tmo.

    • JLV90

      The Tab 4 from AT&T is free with contract if you buy an S6. it’s a shady deal you buy the S6 off contract but they lock you in with the tablets contract.

    Thanks, I appreciate the article, that is, the numbers and reality as written by CAM…” Sure, you get $100 back on a card, but you have to buy two devices which – together – will cost you a minimum of $980 full retail and a maximum of $1,610 (spread over two years). What’s more, you’ll also need to sign up to a plan (EIP) for each one.”
    Simply said, Great Article…!!

    Guess this explains why TMobile is not looking to update SG4 to Lollipop.

    I see it’s all about bringing in the subscriber numbers.

    The only thing a Samsung tablet will be good for is streaming. That’s it!
    For an excellent app experience, themagnificent Apple iPad Air 2 is hands down the bigger, better investment.

    Haha!

      I love iPads. Mini Retina 2 for me.
