Samsung launches T-Mobile Galaxy S8 BOGO deal of its own

galaxys8arcticsilvertmo

If you’re interested in T-Mobile’s Buy One, Get One deal on the Galaxy S8 but don’t want to add a new line, Samsung’s got a new deal that you may want to check out.

Samsung is now offering a Buy One, Get One deal on the T-Mobile Galaxy S8 and S8+. To qualify, you need to buy two T-Mobile Galaxy S8 or S8+ phones from Samsung.com and then activate at least one of the devices on a postpaid voice and data plan.

Once you’ve activated at least one GS8 or GS8+, Samsung will send you a refund of up to $750 to cover the cost of the lower priced device. The refund will only be sent once you’ve activated at least one device. You can activate a phone on Samsung.com at the time that you purchase your phone or within 14 days of receiving the device.

Samsung is currently selling the Galaxy S8 for $750, or $31.25 per month for 24 months. The Galaxy S8+ is $850 or $35.42 per month for 24 months.

While Samsung’s BOGO deal on the Galaxy S8 is similar to T-Mobile’s in that you can get two GS8s for the price of one, the Samsung deal doesn’t say anything about adding a new line of service, which makes the offer appealing to folks that don’t need another line. Samsung says that this offer is available for a limited time, so if you want to take advantage of this offer, you may want to do it sooner rather than later.

One final detail worth mentioning is that Samsung is offering a free Entertainment Kit with the purchase of a Galaxy S8. That kit includes a Clear View Standing Cover, a 64GB microSD card, and six months of Netflix.

    According to the slickdeals thread, a new line might be required: https://slickdeals.net/f/10166180-t-mobile-samsung-galaxy-s8-s8-bogo-via-rebate-refund-750-maximum-samsung-com?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

    There also seems to be issues unlocking the device as Samsung locks it, but T-Mobile doesn’t have the phone in their system to unlock.

    Buyer beware on both counts.

        Good afternoon.

        Kalyan V at 16:07, May 18:

        Please give me a few minutes to review the information that you have shared.

        Kalyan V at 16:09, May 18:

        Thank you for your time.

        Kalyan V at 16:11, May 18:

        I see that you want information about T-mobile promotion.

        Kalyan V at 16:11, May 18:

        I will be glad to help you.

        *** at 16:11, May 18:

        Thanks!

        Kalyan V at 16:12, May 18:

        You need to purchase Samsung T-mobile S8 phone on Samsung.

        Kalyan V at 16:13, May 18:

        Once the phone is purchased you will refund the amount of the phone with up to $750 within 7-10 days after activation.

        Kalyan V at 16:13, May 18:

        You need to active the phone with your carrier(T-mobile).

        *** at 16:14, May 18:

        I don’t have to activate a completely new line with T-Mobile? I can just activate it on one of my existing 4 lines?

        *** at 16:15, May 18:

        Then Samsung will refund me up to $750?

        Kalyan V at 16:15, May 18:

        Yes, you are correct.

          Hope you had them notate that on your account like I did. There’s too much conflicting info here… But I was told the exact same over the phone. No new line necessary.

        • MurF-A-Zoid

          You know i did!

        • Jay

          *high five*

          Hopefully they honor this. I still don’t think we have anything concrete but at least we have some backing. I hope others follow suit for themselves.

        • MurF-A-Zoid

          I know i will if shizz goes bad

      Durga N at 11:42, May 22:
      Luca, for one phone you need to activate a new line on Samsung.com and for another phone you can use the existing line. You can activate a new line from Samsung.com with the link. The link will be provided to you while making payments or you will get the link in email confirmation.
      Luca at 11:52, May 22:
      got it, so i need to get a new line, correct?
      Luca at 11:53, May 22:
      and the new line needs to be used on one of the new phone?
      Durga N at 11:44, May 22:
      Yes, you are absolutely correct.
      Luca at 11:54, May 22:
      and can i cancel the new line once i get the refund?
      Durga N at 11:45, May 22:
      Unfortunately, there is no such option to cancel the new line.

      • Jay

        No option to cancel a new line? Ahahaha, they were already spreading misinformation there…

  • Jorge Trigueros

    I’m already part of TMobile. How does Samsung know if I’ve activated one?

    • DM725

      I’m guessing they will look up the IMEI or something.

      • Jorge Trigueros

        I put two phones in my cart and proceeded to the credit card information section. No option to register the phone there. I don’t want to purchase two phones and find out later I do have to activate a new line.

        • Moby

          I did the same thing and came to the same conclusion. There’s no direction on how to “activate” a device and what that consists of.

          The terms state:

          “activate at least one of those eligible devices on the T-Mobile network via Samsung dot com, either at the time of purchase or within 14 days of your receipt of the eligible device, and receive a refund of up to $750 of the out-of-pocket purchase price of the lower priced eligible device”

          Except I can’t find where the device is activated at the time of purchase. I went through every step of the buying process carefully and didn’t see that. Nor could I find where on their site you activate after the receipt of the device as the above indicates.

          If someone can get a definitive word of what activating consists of and whether it can be on a new line or existing line, please post.

        • Jay

          You can pre-activate if you place your order through the Samsung Shop app or you can activate it through the phone on the app. However, I cannot find anything on samsung.com that’ll let me pre-activate.

        • Glitchhawk

          I too am unsure about this. But ill just activate through the app if the website doesn’t update or something by the time i get my phones.

    • Gregg

      I just got off the phone with Samsung. They are getting a lot of these calls today. The rep told me that they were instructed to say that you may either activate a new line or use an existing line. I have 2 existing line on T-Mobile One and made her clarify that I qualified for the $750 rebate. She confirmed that I did. She said that when the phones arrive that there was a number to call to help me activate them. The number she gave me was 866-265-4504.

  • luca

    i chatted with samsung. They say need to add a new line….

    • Jay

      I just got off the phone​ Samsung e-commerce and they said you do NOT have to add a line. I asked for a supervisor and they also said that adding a line was not necessary but notated my order accordingly.

      • Elfred Elmon Villava Rayen

        U called them in which number???

        • Jay

          855-726-8721

        • MurF-A-Zoid

          No need to add a new line

        • Jason

          I tried calling a couple of times but no one would answer. Did you questioned them about the process of getting it activate and what we’re supposed to do?

        • Jay

          They said after you get the phone, just activate one (or both) of the SIM cards on your account. It can be a pre-existing line. This was said by both the e-commerce rep and her supervisor. I’m going to stand by it since she wrote this on my account.

        • Jason

          Are you choosing to finance it or are you paying it in full?

        • Jay

          I chose to pay it in full since I’ll have my bank backing me up. I got the rep to send me an email confirming the promotion.

        • Jason

          I tried calling them myself but I guess I’m not selecting the correct options because it sending me to their promotion team instead of the e-commerce. Could you provide me with the options you chose?

        • Jason

          Also their promotion team said you have to activate a new since t-mobile is providing the promotion and not Samsung itself.

        • Jay

          So that’s what they originally told me and I said that I’m talking about the promotion on Samsung.com and not what’s being offered in store so they put me on hold and came back and said that I don’t need to add a line. This is a big steaming pile, man.

    So if we already have two lines with an S8 from Tmobile, could we JOD to a couple cheap phones and then get the S8s from Samsung instead? I’d love to pay one of them off with the refund and then we would have only one monthly payment instead of two. Sounds too good to be true

    • Francisco Peña

      Not a bad idea. TEchnically you could, as the phone offer is via Samsung. And as long as you are paying your JoD phone…

        You can read that as you see fit.

    It says activate in a line. So pretty much use the phone in a one of tmobile phone line is all they ask.

    • MurF-A-Zoid

      That’s how I’m taking this deal. No need for a new line.

    Not if you go straight through Samsung and activate your one line
    through their activation process. I activated my 2 phones on existing
    lines. No new line needed.

    That’s what I thought as well. Activate phones on existing lines… not adding a new line.

    • Jay

      Perfect! Did that person just activate the phones in hand?

      • MurF-A-Zoid

        yes

  • Jorge Trigueros

    I’m keeping close watch on the Slickdeals comment section. I’m on vacation in Iceland so if this is a legit BOGO I hope to have a S8+ in orchid grey waiting for me when I get home in a week and an arctic silver S8 will be going on eBay.

    • RLB63

      Since they give a full rebate for the cheaper phone, why not have both S8+ ? Since that would bring more on eBay…

  • Corey Jalette

    Just a heads up, rumor going around that a 3rd and 4th line free promo is going to happen tomorrow possiblly. https://slickdeals.net/f/10178080-tmobile-rumor-3-4-line-free?src=SiteSearchV2Algo1

    • Corey Jalette

      Update: looks like the 25th it’ll happen. Reports saying people are calling in and reps are stating the 25th. Also John is on twitter teasing people to stay tuned. Hopefully it’s announced today.

  • Danny Rodriguez

    So why’s the deal ? Does this in fact require a new activated line or can I just use it on my existing line ?

    • Gust

      Read this article again!

  • Mike

    I’m confused,
    This deal says on new activation of T-Mobile line.
    The T-Mobile promo says activate new line of service for their BOGO.

    What’s the difference?
    These deals seem the exact same except you’re paying Samsung for the phone

    • The Samsung.com deal doesn’t require activation of a new line. You just have to activate one of the phones through Samsung.com (can be activated on an existing line). The other phone doesn’t even need to be activated to get the rebate.

      T-Mobile has its own promotion which requires a new line to be activated.

      • Mike

        That’s what I was hearing but Samsung’s site didn’t word it like that. Thanks, I’ll try that out!

  • George Salcedo

    The deal is sold out btw, I’m glad I did the LG G6 BOGO, less out of pocket costs.

  • Nobody Special

    Umm, does she have the T-Mobile ONE Plan or the Simple Choice Plan?

  • Bob Childress

    Not that it matters now but I took the deal and had 4 t-mobile lines already – I just picked 2 of the numbers – got phones yesterday, activated them today. So one will be paid off in 10 days, can then sell my S7 edge for about $300 and will have paid $450 out of pocket net, not counting the year of Netflix – $120, from the combine deal of each phone. Now if I decide I don’t need the second S8 , I can wait 40 days and unlock the phone and sell it and actually make money on the deal.

    • MurF-A-Zoid

      Nice

  • RLB63

    There’s one major issue with getting the phone directly from Samsung. I doubt you can add insurance or extended warranty through T-Mobile. So if there phone goes bad in a year you are out of luck….
