T-Mobile Galaxy S7 and S7 edge Buy One, Get One Free deal official, launching March 10

galaxys7s7edgepair

UPDATE: Here’s an official FAQ for this new BOGO offer that includes a bit more info, including how you’ll complete the rebate submission.

 

As expected, T-Mobile has announced a Buy One, Get One Free deal on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.

The BOGO offer will launch online tomorrow, March 10. With it, you can buy a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge and receive the full retail value of the second, lower-priced device in the form of a prepaid MasterCard debit card. To qualify, you’ll need to add a line for the second device, and both phones will need to be purchased on an Equipment Installment Plan. The Galaxy S7 will cost $0 down and 24 payments of $27.92 (total of $669.99), while the Galaxy S7 edge will cost $59.99 down and 24 payments of $30 each (total of $779.99).

T-Mobile notes that anyone who purchases a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge during pre-order and adds a line can also get a second device for free.

This BOGO deal will be available for a limited time. Some of the other tidbits worth noting include the fact that you can mix and match devices, so you can get one GS7 and one GS7 edge if you’d like; families can get up to two free devices; and buyers can get a free Gear VR, pack of games, and year of Netflix through March 18. Additionally, the fine print notes that the BOGO offer is not available in Connecticut, Rhode Island, or Miami-Dade County.

T-Mo is also running a couple of other promos, like a fourth line free unlimited family plan that includes four lines of unlimited talk, text, and high-speed data for $150 per month. There’s the Switching Costs Covered deal, too, which will cover your ETF or device payments when you switch to T-Mo from another carrier.

  • Wonder how long we have to wait to get the card. 2 billing cycles or 3? It doesn’t mention this part, which important to me.

    • TaekwonBo

      I’m on 3.5 months(Thanksgiving 2015) and still waiting for Costco’s 250 promotion and still waiting for Samsung pay 25 promotion. Patience is the key.

      • Oh that’s from Costco lol. I’ve always gotten my cards within 2 months from T-Mobile, and I’m hoping this will be the same.

    • CalicoKJ

      For the iPhone promotion on Cyber Monday, I had the prepaid card in about 3 weeks. Not sure if they’ll push these out that fast, but I was amazed on these.

    • Alex Wagner

      The fine print at the bottom of the announcement says “allow 6-8 weeks” for the prepaid MasterCard card. This FAQ explains how you’ll submit your rebate redemption:

  • Jasefacekhs

    does this come with the vr set and that whole promo for both phones as well?

    • Read the article

      • Jasefacekhs

        it says buyers can get a “Gear VR, pack of games, and year of Netflix through March 18” but does that mean for both. because technically you’re only buying one of the devices.

        • StephenLivshits

          You’re buying both devices and getting a prepaid card with the value of the second device on it. You will have a receipt for both, so you’ll most likely be able to redeem the Netflix+Gear VR offer twice.

        • keepitreal25

          yes thank you, the mir card can and will probably be used on anything but these installment payments.

        • Epic_Ninja420

          Its a mastercard, you can use it however you want, including paying off the device. If this phone is as popular as it seems you will be able to flip it on Swappa with the Gear VR in 2 months for close to retail, possibly more if you get it unlocked.

  • Johnnola504

    Wish they would have that offer for the IPhone 7.

    • Apple

      They will my friend as most intelligent people know

      #iPhone4EveryKing

    If you purchased on Jump on Demand and already got your device you have to return the device and then purchase it on EIP:
    I already bought the Galaxy S7 / Galaxy S7 edge with JUMP! On Demand. Can I get one free?

    EIP is required for this buy one get one free offer because it is designed for customers who are purchasing their phone. If the BOGO offer is still available, customers who got the GS7/edge with JUMP! On Demand can return the device, and purchase on EIP for the Buy One Get One Free offer.

    • ConceptVBS

      You still have to pay off the remaining Jump on Demand lease payment. Thats a double wammy.

      • Nancy

        You don’t have the pay off the Jump on Demand if you are using Buyers Remorse for the phone

  • skywalkr2

    They really do want to kill of Jump on Demand. It was just way too good for consumers.

    • Nancy

      Another question from their Question and answer page:

      Why can’t I get one free with JUMP! On Demand?

      JUMP! On Demand is a program designed for customers who value flexibility over ownership. Unlike with Equipment Installment Plans, customers who choose JUMP! On Demand get tremendous value in that they are able to upgrade to a new phone whenever they choose. Having both programs allows customers to choose the benefits that best meet their particular needs.

    • Mike

      Your leasing the phone not buying or financing

      • skywalkr2

        Leasing is literally the same thing as EIP, but with more advantages.

        • Pak T

          Almost. With the leasing you are making payments for something like 18 months then if you want to keep the phone you have to come up with the the equivalent to six monthly payments in one lump sum. With EIP, you get to pay it off over the entire 24 month period.

        • You don’t have to come up with the entire amount at the end of your lease, they give you the option to add it to a monthly payment amount. OR you can pay it in full, but you don’t have to.

        • Mike

          Leasing and financing is not the same thing. With leasing you’re not obligated to keep the phone and pay off the remaining balance . I use EIP once and paid the phone off in three months if I got it thru JOD I would of had to keep service with T-Mobile for 18 months and turned the phone in or paid to keep it .

  • eibook

    I wonder how long you have to keep the added line active?

    • Yubraj

      Do not cancel the added line until you get your MIR for the second device.

  • Rafael Alexis Illan

    what if you already have 2 lines?

    • iAMtimmah

      You would need to add on at least one line.

    • AJ2

      Tmobile doesn’t care about you cuz they already got you to sign up

  • Mike

    I wish people stop complaining about Jump On Demand not getting the s7 promo . Remember with jump on demand you’re leasing not buying or financing the phone.

    • skywalkr2

      It’s literally the same thing in the end. With JOD you keep the phone if you pay off the lease.

      • kev2684

        If you’re on EIP, you’re committed to owning the phone in 2 years whether you still like it or not, like a contract. JoD however, is more flexible. You don’t really own it until you commit to buying it or decide to move on and start another lease on a flagship. That’s why taxes are up front with EIP unlike JoD which is folded into your lease term.

        • skywalkr2

          So will they not allow Jump 2.0 to be on this EIP? Because that would mean you wouldn’t have to keep it full term either.

      • Mike

        You’re not obligated to keep the phone and pay off the remaining balance unlike EIP

    • Panzer

      What about regular Jump customers?

      • Pak T

        That’s a good question because technically the regular Jump program is an EIP program (you own the phone, not leased) and you pay that extra $10 a month for among other things, to be able to pay off the remaining balance on the phone by simply trading in the phone itself (assuming you owe 50% or less of what you bought it for). You effectively have paid for the phone and are now free to buy the new model.

      • Nancy

        I am a Jump 1 person and was actually encouraged to do this. The requirement was that you use EIP and not JOD…

  • steveb944

    “Additionally, the fine print notes that the BOGO offer is not available in Connecticut, Rhode Island, or Miami-Dade County.”

    Miami-Dade County got singled out.

    • AJ2

      Wonder what law prevents it

      • Marcus

        In Connecticut and Rhode Island a retailer cannot advertise the net price of an item after mail-in rebate in unless the retailer is willing to sell the item to the consumer at the net price (the store price less the mail-in rebate) at the point of sale.

  • steveb944

    Starting online this Thursday!

    YES! I don’t need to bother going into a store.

    • Pete

      I wonder what time it start

      • Nancy

        I was able to order the new line i have to take my S7 that I already received to the store and return it for Buyers remorse so I can order the new one on EIP. instead of Jump on Demand

        • Pete

          U able to get the bogo already?

        • Nancy

          i was able to do the add a new line earlier today and order the second phone. Because I pre ordered and received my 7 on JOD I have to return it using Buyers Remorse in the store and purchase a new phone using EIP. I have to wait until Friday for the store because they will not have the phone until then

        • satish s

          Were you charged a restocking fee?

      • Nancy

        I am thinking you can call Care at anytime and order two phones adding one new line using EIP for both and you are good to go. They are taking pre orders with the requirements met.

        From the FAQ: I already got two of Samsung’s new devices on EIP (Galaxy S7 / Galaxy S7 edge). How do I get my rebate for one?

        Please also make sure that you added a line, and meet the requirements. If you do, submit your rebate redemption at http://www.t-mobile.com/promotions no later than 30 days after the purchase of the second device.

      • kev2684

        6 AM (I’m assuming PST but try EST just in case) according to John Legere when he was on Periscope earlier this evening

  • Pak T

    OK here is a scenario that I am sure I am missing something and won’t work. So someone point out where the flaw is in this plan…

    Add a line and get 2 S7s, apply for the rebate, get rebate credit card, use card to pay off balance of S7 on the added line, drop the added line. now sell the new-in-box S7 for say $400 (~ 60% of the retail price) which should be an easy sell, take the $400 and apply it to the EIP of the other S7. All said and done after factoring in the few month with the added line end up with a S7 for about $300-ish. ???

    • jay

      i want to try it but can it be really be that simple. ok so you get both phones then wait 4-6 weeks to get your rebate card to pay off the free phone. then you sell it. sounds like a good plan but im sure it will back fire

      • Yubraj

        No, it wont fire back, i had a chat with t-mobile rep, and they only suggested me to do so given that I have 9 years of relationship with t-mobile as a loyal customer.

    • Pete

      I’m afraid u won’t get the mir card till after 24 months.

      • Pak T

        No, this shouldn’t be an issue. Read the official FAQ.

        “Then, within 30 days of the purchase of your second phone, submit your rebate redemption at http://www.t-mobile.com/promotions. You will receive your rebate as a Prepaid MasterCard® card in the mail within 8 weeks of this submission.”

      • Yubraj

        It clearly says within 8 weeks of fully paying the phone you will get the MIR card which can be used anywhere that accepts the card.

        • Pete

          That’s pretty cool.

        • Robert

          No, it clearly states:

          “Then, within 30 days of the purchase of your second phone, submit your rebate redemption at http://www.t-mobile.com/promotions. You will receive your rebate as a Prepaid MasterCard® card in the mail within 8 weeks of this submission.”

          It doesn’t say anything about requiring the device to be “Fully Payed” before you get the rebate card.

        • Yubraj

          yes that is correct, but don’t cancel the newly added line until you get the MIR.

  • Joe

    The only catch is that according to the FAQ, one of the S7’s must be on the new line. Meaning, I think, that you can’t transfer an old number to that S7. It must remain on the new line.

    I have three lines now. This extra line I won’t need. My plan is to get another S7 tomorrow at a Tmobile store. Get the extra line of course. Send in my info and wait 6-8 weeks. Get the card in the mail and use it to pay off this phone. Then transfer a current number to the S7 and dump the new phone number and line. Basically my bill will be extra large for a month or two during this process but I’ll have the EIP of the new phone and the extra line charge which is going to be $8.50 with my work discount.

    This is good. Had a phone on my account that we wanted to upgrade for awhile now and now we can do it for free with a top of a line phone.

    • Joe

      Straght from Tmobile on Facebook:

      T-Mobile

      Hey Joe! Yes you will need to keep the line long enough to get the prepaid card and then you can cancel if you like. Thanks for reaching out to T-Force and have a great day!

      *ReginaldW

      So yes you can get the phone.. wait for the prepaid card to come in the mail.. use the prepaid card to pay off the phone and then cancel the extra phone line and you just got a free phone. What’s even better is you can then sell the free phone on ebay or craigslist for 75% of the retail price and almost pay off your first phone. LoL.

      • Joe

        Forgot to add you also get the VR headset and year of netflix with this new phone. That’s an extra $220 right there. Sell the headset for $80. You have two years of Netflix free now. You could almost be making money off Tmobile depending on how much you can sell the free phone and VR headset for lol.

        • Nancy

          Does anyone know if you have 2 years of Netflix can you put it on one account so you have 2 years of Netflix. Or do you have to put them on two different accounts

        • Enrique Escobar

          you can use them on the same account.

        • Nancy

          Thank you that is great to know.

        • Michael Ramos

          I’ve used 2 codes on one account before & it works I have 2 years free

    • Candy rain

      If you have 3 lines and you got the 4th line , the 4th line would be free so why would you cancel a free line?

      • Joe

        I’m not on your plan. 4th line costs me an extra $10 a month.

    • Pak T

      “The only catch is that according to the FAQ, one of the S7’s must be on the new line. Meaning, I think, that you can’t transfer an old number to that S7. It must remain on the new line.”

      I think this only means that the EIP for the S7 has to be tied to that line, but T-Mobile doesn’t care which SIM you stick in which phone so you can use the S7 on whatever lines you want.

  • satish s

    This is my scenario. I pre-ordered a GS7 in JOD and received the phone on March 4th. But the BOGO offer seem better than that. This is what i am considering. Can you all confirm whether i am missing something?
    1. Return my GS7 on March 10 since I am within 14 days time. Do I need to pay restocking fees?
    2. Order two GS7 with EIP on March 10th. After reading the fine print for the Gear VR and Netflix offer, I think I am eligible for that one too. So redeem the Gear VR and Netflix offer after getting the phone. Can I redeem two for the two phones I get?
    3. Cancel the extra line that I open after getting the MIR card and close the EIP balance.
    Anything missing or not correct?

    • Joe

      If you read the FAQ they are letting people who preorder do this deal. You just need to order a new phone line with the phone and then wait 6-8 weeks for your prepaid credit card to come in the mail.

    • Jason Choi

      From what I understand from reading the FAQ, you dont have to return your GS7. Just add a new line, order another GS7 and once you receive it just go to the promotions page and insert all the required info. Since the rebate is in the form of a prepaid debit mastercard, what you do with that is on you. From what I can tell, you can use that prepaid card to pay off the phone and now its yours. Since that extra line no longer has an EIP you can just cancel that line.

      • Seth

        He has to return and order again because his current one is on JOD, not EIP.

    • Nancy

      I am thinking that if you ordered your phone on EIP you can keep the phone you have. Then just order a new phone on a new line using EIP.

    • Seth

      Yes, don’t listen to others. Others are thinking you’re on EIP currently but you’re JOD. You need to return and order again.

      • satish s

        Thanks and thats exactly what I did. It was a hassle returning the JOD phone to the store. Finally customer service came through and sent me a shipping label.

  • Marcus

    Bogo deal has some unusual wording, specifically if you cancel service does not say the usual remaining balance…
    Buy One, Get One Free: Limited time offer. O.A.C. EIP & new line req’d. Port in may be req’d. +taxes/fees If you cancel service, remaining balance @ full price due. Void in CT, RI and Miami/Dade. Unlimited offer: 4 Lines min. Includes 14GB of SMHS. Coverage not available in some areas. Plus taxes and fees.

  • Sam

    Why can’t I get the deal in Connecticut? And would it work if I ship it to somewhere else, even though the address on the account is Connecticut?

  • Marcus

    If this is structured the same as ATT Bogo, if the new line of service is cancelled within 24 months you would be billed for the rebate as well as the balance on the device. Anyone have the terms and conditions for the rebate?

    • Joe

      If that’s the case, what you can do is cancel an old line of service and keep the new line of service. Worst case is that the person with the phone gets a new phone number.

      • Pete

        I’m thinking about doing that. I wouldn’t mind getting a new #. Tmobile shouldn’t penalize me for that right?

        • BillSmitty

          This is probably what you would have to do to get around this. I was just in a TMO store and the manager said there will probably be a “line charge” if you cancel the line in a certain period of time because of what we all want to do right here. In this case, you’d have to cancel an old line and keep the new one activated with the new S7.

          That won’t work for me as I need to keep my existing line and would want to transfer the S7 to my existing line after the 6-8 weeks and cancel that new one.

          Let us know if anyone hears differently or it is stated in the agreement about a “line charge” if line not kept open for “x” months.

        • Joe

          Tmobile facebook already told me I can cancel the new line after the phone is paid off. So basically when the debit card comes just pay it off and then cancel the line and you got a free phone.

      • Dave

        Will this actually work? This seems like the best option since my main number is Google voice anyway

    • Pete

      If that the case, can we cancel 1 of the existing line without get billed?

    • Loco Mole

      Can anyone point me to anything that says cancelling within 24 months will require us to pay back the rebate amount? I only see that cancelling the service will make you owe the remaining balance on the phone, but it doesn’t say that you would owe the rebate amount:

      “Limited time offer; subject to change. Taxes and fees add’l. Buy One, Get One Free: At participating locations. Not available in CT, RI or Miami/Dade Cty. Qual’g new line of service req’d. Port in from eligible carriers may be req’d. Free device is of equal or lesser value. Limit 2 free phones. Phones must be on same BAN. Credit check and EIP agreement on both devices required. If you cancel wireless service, remaining balance on phone becomes due. You must submit receipts within 30 days of purchase and be active and in good standing with T-Mobile when payment is processed. Rebate provided as a Prepaid MasterCard® Card. Cards issued by Citibank, N.A. pursuant to a license from MasterCard International and managed by Citi Prepaid Services. Card terms and conditions apply. Allow up to 8 weeks for processing.”

  • Marcus

    If anyone contacts customer service, please ask for the terms and conditions for the rebate (don’t forget to share with everyone else). Strange that you cannot read them before qualifying for the offer by ordering two phones and adding a new line first. Customer service can say what they want, the agreement you have to sign is all that counts.

  • Loco Mole

    What is the value of the MIR gift card, $669.99 for the S7? And is the second device eligible for another set of VRGear+Netflix?

    Oh, keep in mind the sales tax. At 6% Virginia rate, it was $40.xx when I ordered mine on EIP. I might order a second one with this offer.

  • Pete

    I wonder how long this promo last

  • Gs7bogo

    I ordered in Virginia as well and the sales tax was about $48 or so for my pre order. Take note, when your order the second device, this time it will be the tax+$20 starter sim + the monthly charge on the new line. My plan is to get two Samsung VR’ 2 one year Netflix and if possible 2 wireless chargers. Suspend the second line for 90 days for a fee of $10 and then pay off the phone with the MasterCard then cancel the second line after within the 90 days. Fingers crossed.

    • Pete

      Sounds like a good idea

    • Joe

      They never charged me first months payment. Just tax and SIM card. Did EIP.

    • Rene Shabastari

      Interesting, I didn’t have to pay for SIM, only Tax when it ships. Another user above had the same experience as you. Mine was over the phone. I was also super surprised that I didn’t have to pay the $60 down for S7E in order to make it 30/month. Also the new line won’t get charged until next bill, maybe because I just started a new billing cycle.

    • Neoprimal

      I’d be super surprised if there was no fine print preventing this.

  • ConceptVBS

    If you are on Jump on Demand and want to cancel the lease early, you’ll have to pay for the remaining balance left on the phone. Then you sign up for the EIP on the S7. Thats a double wammy. NOT GOOD.

    • bones

      Well, I purchased the S7 Edge and received it a week ago so I can return it using the buyers remorse but what about the promos I put in for already?

    • Seth

      You can JOD to another device and return within 20 days without paying restocking fee and get out of JOD entirely.

      • bones

        That’s what I’m doing, wonder if I still get my VR headset and Netflix after I turn in my JOD S7 Edge..

    • kev2684

      Wait, is this common knowledge? I thought with JOD, as long as you return the phone, you owe nothing. What’s stopping anyone from getting a new device with JOD and returning it within 14 days to get out of the previous lease term? They just got hit with a brand new Open Box device for the off chance the customer pays off the previous device full balance.

  • Loco Mole

    For those comparing this offer to AT&T Bogo, it’s not the same in that Tmo pays the rebate amount with a Citi Prepaid MasterCard in one whole lump sum within 6-8 weeks, whereas per CNET, “AT&T will credit up to $695 over the span of 30 months. Subscribers who leave AT&T before the full amount is credited will be responsible for the remaining balance.”

    In other words, AT&T’s offer requires the customer to keep the line active for 30 months – ouch!

    • eanfoso

      Soooo Soooo planning on scamming t mobile and canceling once you had your money? Classic.

      • Rene Shabastari

        Not a scam, I literally told the rep I was doing this and she said that is perfectly fine

      • Loco Mole

        Huh?

      • Loco Mole

        Huh???

  • Brian Richards

    Who else is going to pissed that they STILL don’t have their pre-order even though the phones will be in stores tomorrow?

    • Brian Richards

      I have just confirmed my local store HAS the specific model I ordered in stock. I also have confirmed tht T-Mobile is not planning to ship my pre-order until next week. At this point I am so livid with T-Mobile. They continue to claim they are shipping pre-orders in the order thye were received, but instead of doing that they are holding back stock at the stores in order to DOUBLE DIP.

      I mean why send me the phone as promised when they have my money and can sell the phone to someone else instead and get their money too? Totally BS.

      • Neoprimal

        I got my phone 2 days after I per-ordered from the store. Luckily the really cool rep. advised me on getting the gold because the silver was crazy popular.

        Now however I’m worried I won’t get the VR headset because the account is under my wife’s name – even though I’m fully authorized and the payment and addresses are under mine, I’m worried about the receipt. They haven’t contacted me yet to say yea or nay on whether my submitted receipt is acceptable. I could have just done it all under my wife’s name. Called T-Mobile and they said it will be fine since both names appear on the receipt but we’ll see.

        One of biggest reasons I got the phone is the VR Headset + Netflix deal which in my mind brings the phone down to a very justifiable $540 – if I don’t get the Gear then I’m probably going to just return the phone and complain so they don’t charge me restocking – then get myself a 6P since it feels just as fast even though I know the benchmarks say it isn’t.

        • Brian Richards

          I ended up going to the store Friday – cancelled the pre-order and bought it on the spot. They had STACKS of silver. They probably still do. They haven’t gotten back to me on yea or nay. T-Mo says 4-6 weeks for DELIVERY, but the samsung email clearly says 4-6 weeks for REVIEW. HAve you gotten back the NEtflix email? I’m worried about that too. I only got htis phone because the deals offset the high price. If I end up with nothing in hand I may go look for a new carrier. Have not been happy with T-Mobile ANY STEP OF THE WAY thorugh this process.

        • Neoprimal

          Yeah, Samsung says 4-6 weeks for review and I haven’t heard a peep from them since. Indeed, I got the GS7 Edge for the same reason, the Gear and Netflix offset the high price. I believe the Netflix thing is a part of the deal through Samsung, so no I haven’t heard from Samsung and haven’t gotten the redemption code for Netflix. If they do end up declining for whatever reason, as I said I will just return the phone and get myself a 6P or something instead. At almost 1/2 the price and stock Android, it’s very fast, has a great camera and is a good option as wel – almost jealous of the one I got my wife, but I’m falling for the Edge daily.

          I’m super happy with T-Mobile so I’m not interested in switching carriers. Just be careful. The grass always looks greener on the other side.

        • Brian Richards

          Is it me or does it sort of feel like we all bought very expensive tickets in an illegal lottery? Buy this phone and hope you are one of the lucky winners of limited supplies of giveaways…

    • Rene Shabastari

      Is it for the silver one? I hear that one is crazy backordered. But I agree with you that it is annoying

      • Brian Richards

        Yes the silver one. The stores I have called comfirm having it. A T-Mobile rep on their FB page PM’d and said that they consider the stores to be a pre-order customer. What utter nonsense.

  • I tried to add the promotion. but since I am on a grandfathered plan they won’t allow me to get the promotion.They stated you had to be on a new plan! bummer!

    • anyone have any suggestions?

    • francob911 .

      Witch plan do you have?? And who told you that … The store or over the phone??? Because I have the 2 for $50 grandfathered select plan and I was able to do it

      • I have select choice fam unlimited tt+d 60. Plus the 5 dollar add a lines. I have 5 lines total. I was told I had to put a deposit to add any other lines.. then when I called yesterday I was told I couldn’t add at all..

      • Lol

        I have the vampire/Dracula breed plan!

  • Pete

    Does it have to be on the same receipt?

    • Andrew Singleton

      No. the two purchase events must simply both lie inside of the promotional period which started February 23. One of the purchases must occur under the new line of service to be eligible for a rebate.

  • Joe

    I completed this offer today. First of all I went into a Tmobile store to do it. They said I was the first one who wanted to do it so they were a little sketchy on how to do it. They had to call corporate for directions because they didn’t know if they had to put the new phone on the same order as my preorder which I already had in my hand or make a new order. After figuring it out, they rang me up for the new line and phone. Had to buy a SIM card which was $20. Plus I had to pay tax up front. I did EIP. So keep that in mind if you do EIP that you’ll have a good $70 bill you have to pay before leaving the store.

    Going into the store they bombarded me with high pressure up charges which I refused each one. They tried to get me to raise my data limit, they tried to sell me a case, they tried to get me to do insurance saying if I don’t, the world would end. I refused everything.

    Got home from work and went to the t-mobile.com/promotions website to start the refund process. Had no issues as it saw me and let me complete the simple form. Hit submit and it processed saying it takes 6-8 weeks for the card to be mailed.

    What the store didn’t do was give me a phone right then even though they had phones in stock. Two people helped me. One of them asked the other if she should get a phone from the back. The other said to treat this as a preorder and it will be mailed. So I didn’t leave the store with a phone which means hopefully it gets here soon so I can enter my data in for the Samsung promotion to get the VR goggles and Netflix. Hopefully they don’t run out since they only have 300,000 goggles.

    • Rene Shabastari

      That’s worrisome about the low stock of goggles. I ordered my second S7E over the phone and had to pay nothing on the spot. Only tax once the phone ships. New line gets added to next months bill. No SIM charge either, I would be mad if they wanted to charge me for a SIM if I didn’t get the phone right there. It comes with a SIM in the box

      • Joe

        I asked them why am I getting charged for a SIM when my S7 upgrade I did in my preorder the SIM was free. They said because it’s a new line and they always charge for the SIM on new lines. They said upgrades the SIM is always free.

        • Nancy

          I was told today that the sim charge was not only for the sim but activation as well and starting a new line. They said that Care has the ability to wave the sim card fee but for some reason the stores do not. I was told if the store does not charge the sim fee they don’t get credit for the sale.

        • Rene Shabastari

          Good info, this right here makes a lot of sense, although it is annoying. I was not charged over the phone for the add a line 2nd S7E order. I’m sorry for anyone that was

    • Nancy

      The stores had them today but the store I deal with absolutely could not sell them until tomorrow. They had nothing in the system that could sell them other then having them sent. Purchase in store and have them sent. Don’t you need the codes to to register for the free phone?

    • Tony T Lee

      Thanks for the info. So the “free” phone will probably cost you 35 (tax for 1 phone)+20 (activation fee)+20×2 (2 months service on the current 10gb family plan) = $95. Any ways to minimize that cost?

      • GS7BOGO

        I think your best shot of minimizing cost would be to suspend the new line after recovering the phone. You can do that for 90days at a few of $10 and then cancel later. That’s what i intend to do.

        • GS7BOGO

          Sorry for the typos. I meant after “receiving” the phone and also a “fee”of $10

    • Tony T Lee

      Hi, was the $70 tax for 1 phone or both phones?

      • Joe

        It was $50 tax and $20 SIM card fee. Total of $70

    • BillSmitty

      So there was nothing about a line charge if you cancel service on the new line after you pay off the new S7?

    • Marcus

      Did you read the terms and conditions of the rebate? Looking for anything related to cancelling the new line.

    • BillSmitty

      Did you have to setup EIP for both phones? I just ordered (an existing customer), added a new line (EIP) and they said the other phone had to be associated with an existing line for EIP, as well. I guess that makes sense, but was a little confused. Added a new line for $10/mo and will cancel that after rebate comes. Thx Joe…off to order the freebies.

  • rakowskidp

    It looks like I’ll have to switch plans to take advantage of this offer. I’m on the $120/4 line/10GB per line plan, and it’s forcing me to choose either the $80/2 line/2GB plan or $150/4 line/unl. plan. I wonder if they’ll make exceptions in store or on the phone.

    • GS7BOGO

      Its a glitch in the system. I have the same plan and experienced that same problem of forcing to switch plans. I called T-Mobile and the rep ordered on the phone with a new line yesterday. My S7 Edge is out for delivery today. Note: you will be charged for $20 starter sim and taxes for the free phone.

      • Rene Shabastari

        Congrats, that’s a fast turn around. Which color did you get? I ordered Silver S7E on the phone too yesterday morning, but I know silver is the most backordered color
        XD

        • GS7BOGO

          My pre-order on the 5th was silver and it’s still processing. I’m actually typing this message on the gold which was ordered yesterday at 2am. I think the silver and black is in serious backorder. I got a message told saying my silver be here between the 14th-17th. Unfortunately I missed the free wireless charger but I already put in for the Gear VR and the rebate

  • Nancy

    In store today I was charges a 59.95 Downpayment on the Edge. They said there was not a down payment on the S7 only the Edge. Did anyone else see this charge when buying in store.

    • GAMERSPLAY

      Picked up an S7 Edge in-store this AM too. Was told the $60 charge was mandatory. I ended up paying about $65 and some change (w/tax) — this however brought my monthly payment down on JOD to $30/month.

    • j

      it did says in the retail store where the 7 no down but edge 59.99.

  • Win

    Am I being punished by paying 2 S7 Edge in full? Not happy at all.

    • Joe

      Actually you can get up two free phones with this deal. Get the two extra phones, wait until the debit card comes in the mail. Pay off both phones with the debit card. Request the unlock code for each phone. Sell on Ebay. Use that money to pay off the first two phones you got.

      You just got two free phones dude!

      • Win

        Joe, in order to request unlock code from t-mobile, do I need to use the phone before selling on ebay? Then I can only sell it as used phone?

        • Joe

          You just need to pay it off and completely own the phone. They will send you the code through email. Print that up and give it to the person who buys it.

        • Andrew Singleton

          Be careful, only 2 unlocks per year per account.

  • Tony T Lee

    Will I be able to get 2 VR’s and 2 years of netflix with this promo?

    • Joe

      Yes. If Samsung doesn’t run out of VR’s and you enter the promo in time.

    • Andrew Singleton

      Netflix offer is no longer available. The Gear VR is still being offered, at least for today, March 17.

  • Duce Todd

    Not a good deal if your on Jump on demand 2.0 they make you cancel your lease and go back to jump 1.0 so no more 3 phones a year back to putting half down to get this deal no thank you I upgrade everything a new phones comes out 0 down and dont have to w8 every 6months can’t give it up now

    • bones

      They make you cancel your JOD? They didnt tell me that, I already have a EIP with a few months worth of payments left, I have a S7 Edge on JOD and could have added an S7 edge on the same EIP I’m already paying on.

    • Andrew Singleton

      There is only 1 Jump on demand program, and if you chose to, you would be placed on what reps refer to as Jump 2, which is 1 upgrade per year, once half of the phone’s balance has been paid. For less well-qualified customers with down-payments, this will happen sooner than a year later. It sounds like you have $0-down leasing available, which means you would also have 0-down financing, so no putting half down. You could also sell both phones and hop right back onto a JOD lease. Problem solved :)

  • Ricky Rosenberg

    Has anyone that has a grandfathered Bridge to Value plan been able to get in on this deal? I have called twice and went in store, and was told my rate plan ($39.99 for 600 Minutes, My Faves, $9.99 Unlimited Texts, and $5 Unlimited Internet on each line) that I would have to switch to a Simply Choice plan. I really don’t know what to do, as I have been a customer of them for 12 years and seriously considering switching providers if they can’t honor this deal for me. I should be able to add another line for $9.99 to do this.

    • Pak T

      Your threat to switch isn’t very threatening considering you would give up your current plan either way to get the new phones. It isn’t like Verizon, AT&T, etc. are going to hand you new S7s along with the same plan you have now.

    • francob911 .

      Dude just stick to your plan… And buy the s7 out right

  • Ani S

    Has anyone with Select Choice grandfathered plan gotten the deal?

    • francob911 .

      I have! and I been told after we get the rebate you can cancel the line

  • Giro

    OK so I want to get this deal but line I’m getting I’m not keeping the s7 on the line for long just maybe for two days and get dummy phone for that line can this cuz any issues with my rebate

    • Andrew Singleton

      usage of either phone is not an issue. only that the new line remains active, and at least one of the devices was financed under that new phone #.

  • GS7BOGO

    Not using the phone on that line doesn’t make a difference as long as you have the line activate until you get your rebate.

  • Muhammad Ali

    Just get off the line with loyalty dept. According to loyalty dept, I have to keep the new line active for atleast 30 days to get a credit.

    • Andrew Singleton

      Don’t cancel anything before the rebate is physically received.

  • Pete

    What is “BAN” stands for?

    • Yubraj

      Billing Account Number??

      • Pete

        I’m guessing it something to do with account #

    • Andrew Singleton

      It’s an account or account number. Some customers have multiple BANS under their social security number (limit 2). with 2 bans, you can get 4 free galaxies.

  • TaekwonBo

    Just added 2 lines and got 4 galaxy edges. Submitted my rebate for 4 VR’s and my 2 Mastercard rebates. Waiting for confirmation so that I can get my 4 Netflix codes. (T-Mobile rep says I can stack but we’ll see). I plan to payoff the 2 new lines with the Mastercard GC’s then sell those phones and use the money from those to apply towards the remaining phones. then I might sell one of those and keep the last one for next to nothing for a flagship device.

    ***Can anyone foresee an issue with this idea*** Set up 4 Samsung pay accounts. make a transaction using Samsung pay(MST) on square reader for 1.00. Then earn and select the $30 eBay card and use it online?

    • Neoprimal

      I don’t really see how they would allow this. If they do, they’re really stupid.

      • TaekwonBo

        I would just create a new Samsung pay user.

    • Faruk Yildiz

      What if you add only 1 line can you still get 4 (2 of them free)phones?

      • TaekwonBo

        If you add 1 line you get 1 free phone

    • Andrew Singleton

      unless it specifcally bans this behavior in the t&c, i don’t think you’re even doing anything wrong. i would ask 3 friends or relatives to help you out just so the cc info isnt identical

      • TaekwonBo

        Right, that was my thinking just have my wife and older kids create accounts then I keep the reward. Bwahahaha

  • satish s

    I submitted my submission for BOGO and got a confirmation email. When I check the status of my submission it says received and being verified. Allow 4-6 weeks for processing. Did anyone got any further updates? The same status for the VR offer too – under verification. Anyone got a different update?

    • TaekwonBo

      Same here, submitted my info today, I show under review.

    • Yubraj

      damn thats so fast, i submitted on 12th and still says not found and may take up to 14 days for it to show in tmobile promotions site.

    • Andrew Singleton

      The preloaded card will arrive no sooner than 6 weeks from the submission, so don’t count the days…

  • beepborp

    Hey guys I need some help answering a question.. If I already have 4 lines can I cancel one of them and then re-open it to get this deal? Or is that not valid?

    • TaekwonBo

      I don’t think that would work. I would say you need to have a new line with a new phone number issued or ported.

    • Andrew Singleton

      No, that would be a re-activated line, which is not new.

  • TEKHD

    Warning! The Galaxy S7/S7 Edge has a LOCKED BOOTLOADER! T-Mobile Uncarrier??? Bad, bad move…

    • Joe

      Most phones have one nowadays. You need to go the nexus line to not have one.

    • Jay Bruce

      If you take the 2 for 1deal, you get a credit for the second phone. If you take that credit and actually pay off one of the phones, you can have it unlocked after 40 days of activation. Basically as soon as phone is paid off, and it has had 40 days of activation, you can have it unlocked.

      • TEKHD

        I am talking about the bootloader my friend… Not the sim lock.

        • Jay Bruce

          Ah okay. But that breaks Pay so… I don’t care about using a custom firmware.

  • AJ2

    Just saw an att commercial for iPhone BOGO promotion

  • Muhammad Ali

    Can someone help me. What do they mean by the receipt for free VR & Netflix?T-mobile never give a receipt. I ordered over the phone with a customer service rep & the only thing I receive in my e-mail is a signed copy of my eip agreement. Should I upload my eip agreement as a receipt? Any suggestion would be welcome.

    • Luis

      Yes use that one

    • MrCrusha

      Log into your T-Mobile account on a computer and find the bill where it shows the imei. They will want to see that.

  • Andrew Singleton

    THIS ENDS TODAY, MARCH 17. LAST DAY TO PICK ONE UP OR PLACE AN ORDER. FREE GEAR VR STILL AVAILABLE.

    • jeffy

      how do you know?

      • Andrew Singleton

        employee

        • jeffy

          When are we getting our VR’s, Netflix codes and the prepaid card?

        • Andrew Singleton

          Prepaid card no sooner than 6 weeks, and the other items are from Samsung so I don’t know.

        • jeffy

          Okay thanks, one last questions, so i got two galaxys using bogo free. I am only using one of them on my personal line (not the line that i added), and the other ones being used by my sister on her metro account. The line that i added is LITERALLY sitting on my table, everynight i put that sim in, in my phone and make a call to my other phone. Do you think ill still be eligible for the prepaid card?

  • Gardo

    Apparently you can’t find the silver S7 Edge anywhere here in central Florida, I went to the store on March 14 and bought two with the BOGO offer but they didn’t have it so they ordered them and now they are shipping on 3/24-3/28 and the final day to enter for the VR and free year of Netflix is on March 31. Thanks Samsung for not sending enough phones so that people will fall for the promos and then screw them over.

  • Lori

    I pre-ordered two S7 Edge phones and got the VR and Netflix promo. I received the confirmation email that my submission claim has been approved and received my Netflix code. Shouldn’t I get two Netflix codes for purchasing two phones? One is mine and one is my brother’s so we would like two Netflix codes for 1 year free each. Does anyone know how that works?

    • Rey

      If you submitted the form twice you should get two codes. I bought one for me and one for my wife, submitted the form twice with each phone information. Got my two codes, now I have a $238.00 credit on my netflix account, I currently pay $7.99 a month so that will be good for 30 Months unless Netflix raises their prices.

    • lalo

      I submitted the form once for two phones. I received two separate emails about 10 days apart. I already added both Netflix codes to my account. I forgot to mention I did email Samsung customer service regarding the issue before I received the second email.

  • Nancy

    For those that are waiting my promotion for Buy one get one has moved from received to approve on April 26th. It says the card will be shipped in 2 to 3 weeks.. I applied on March 11th.

    • Marek

      Approved 5/2/2016

    • Kathleen A. Gudger

      Where do you go to check? I only see for the VR & Netflix promo not the BOGO

      • Nancy

        Please go to https://promotions.t-mobile.com in the top left corner is says Promotion status. click on that.
        there are three options to check I usually use phone number zip code.

  • ImTheNana

    We switched to get this promotion, and the store told us that they submitted the rebate, but they never did. We are in the midst of hours and hours of fighting between customer service who sends us to the store, and the store sends us to customer service. So f’g frustrated with all this. We were going to use the cards to pay off the balance with Sprint, now it’s gone to collections and it’s a huge mess.

    • Megan

      What did they end up doing? I am having the same issue right now.

      • ImTheNana

        My son argued with then enough at higher and higher levels until they gave us a credit for the amount.
