T-Mobile offering $48 device discount to students and teachers

tmobilestudentsteachersdiscount

Several companies offer education discounts to give students and teachers savings on new devices or services, and that includes T-Mobile.

T-Mobile is giving out coupon codes good for $48 off of a new smartphone or tablet. To qualify, you’ll need to verify that you actually are a student or teacher by submitting your name, email address, school name and ZIP, and possibly some “additional documentation” as well. Once T-Mo has confirmed that you’re a student or teacher, they’ll give you an instant coupon code good for a one-time $48 discount.

This web-only deal is available to US college students as well as K-12 and college staff.

Now before you go to get your discount code, there are a few more details that you should be aware of. The offer excludes devices that cost less than $100, so you won’t be able to get one of T-Mobile’s affordable devices on the cheap. Additionally, the fine print says “new services required” and that the coupon “doesn’t apply to device upgrades,” so you’ll need a new line to use your code.

Some may not consider $48 to be a huge discount, but every little bit helps when you’re buying a new phone that can cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars. So if you’re a college student or a school staff member and you’re going to be getting new T-Mo service — or you know someone that is — this is an offer to keep in mind.

    $48 is something… better than nothing. It’s too bad this wasn’t offered back in late November 2015 when we purchased the LG G4.

  • Mike Palomba

    It would be nice if they didn’t throw the $100 or more requirement in there and if you didn’t need to purchase service with it.

    #TMOBILE SUX! Give your money to Verizon or AT&T!

    • mingkee

      The overcharge will kill your @$$!

      • 9to5Slavery

        and throttle you / throttle you early with their broken towers that can’t handle congestion.

    ALEX This is a disappointing promo no matter how you look at it.. its hype & noise with no substance….

    • Edgar Gonzalez

      Yet it’s still a promo that the other carriers don’t have.

      • 9to5Slavery

        Verizon does.

  • | VADOCOM™

    I’m sure it’s OAC only! Right #TMobile?

  • Jay J. Blanco

    So this discount is basically to cover taxes on the device? Lmao

    • 9to5Slavery

      Oregon and another state with no sales tax, or if you’re on base this could be a winner.

      • Jay J. Blanco

        makes sense..

  • mingkee

    How about make up 10% off?

  • patt

    The only good thing about Verizon it’s easy to get discount. With a school email for example 19% off. However I have 0 regrets of leaving them:) I used to average 4 gigs on verizon/shared 30 gb of data. This month myself I used 26gb. Cycle ends in 6 hours lol.

    • 9to5Slavery

      Congrats on tmobile? I’m wanting to test Sprint with their unthrottle in Carrier Aggregation x2 soon. I’m in market to get speeds 100mbps+

      • patt

        i got few times speedtests above 100. Fastest was 144mbps.

        • 9to5Slavery

          What market?

        • patt

          NYC. Brooklyn and Queens

  • Stefan Naumowicz

    $48 off devices that are overpriced by way more than $48. Big whoop

    • Edgar Gonzalez

      A discount is a discount and some people will appreciate it. If you don’t like it go pay full price or go somewhere else. Simple as that.

    • 9to5Slavery

      “$48 off devices that are overpriced by way more than $48. Big whoop”

      Overpriced is because you are in the lower end market, or you’re not making enough money and thus you complain as you’re waiting for your paycheck every now and then. Big whoop, another complainer sharing their broke azz.

      • Stefan Naumowicz

        The point i was getting at is that the exact same phones are sold for way less elsewhere, not that I can’t afford them. Good job showing how classy you are

        • 9to5Slavery

          That’s not what you said reading the comment originally posted. Shows you are making up bs to cover whatever it is you’re saying again. Coward.

        • Stefan Naumowicz

          Lol. All my original post said was that their phones are way overpriced. If you can’t deduce that to mean the same equipment is available for less at other places, your language skills are severely lacking

        • 9to5Slavery

          Which is personal opinion, I still stand by what I stated. You’re poor.

        • 9to5Slavery

          And complaining

        • Stefan Naumowicz

          Lol. I should have known to not feed the troll…

        • 9to5Slavery

          I guess that’s it for my conversation after an incompetent comment coming from the guy who gives up.

      • Adam

        You’re not very good at insults, are you? I suggest watching “Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog” for some how to education.

        • 9to5Slavery

          You made my morning if you thought that was suppose to be insulting. Stop being so sensitive Adam, there’s no need for that.

    • David Nguyen

      can you tell me what phone you’re interested in buying and comparing them to credible businesses that have them lower? Swappa, ebay, and craigslist are not to name a few.

  • Devin Klinger

    Does anyone know how to email John Legere?

  • Quick Question

    What if you are taking one class online with the University of Phoenix. Does this discount still applied? I’m asking for friend. Thanks –
