T-Mobile LG G6 gets a BOGO deal of its own

lgg6tmobilesilver

UPDATE: There seems to be some confusion with T-Mobile, LG, and this deal. T-Mo is apparently telling its employees that the deal has been pulled, but it’s still live on the web as of Sunday evening and LG may be telling customers that that the offer is still on. Hopefully we’ll hear more about this whole situation on Monday.

 

ORIGINAL: The Samsung Galaxy S8 isn’t the only T-Mobile smartphone that’s part of a Buy One, Get One offer right now.

A new BOGO deal for the T-Mobile LG G6 launched this week. This one appears to be hosted by LG, and it offers a $500 electronic rebate check to cover the cost of an LG G6 from T-Mobile. As a reminder, T-Mo is currently discounting the G6, pricing it at $20 down and $20 per month for 24 months, which is $500 total.

To qualify for this LG G6 BOGO deal, you’ll need to purchase two LG G6 phones before June 8, 2017. You’ll then need to register for the promo, which will include sharing your contact info, the purchase date, and photos of your purchase receipt and your devices IMEI.

Also of note is that as of publication, T-Mobile is still running its deal that offers a free LG G Pad X 8.0 with the purchase of the LG G6. To get the free tablet, you’ll need to buy both the LG G6 and LG G Pad X 8.0 on EIP and add a mobile internet data plan of at least 2GB to the tablet. You’ll then get a prepaid MasterCard card to cover the balance of the G Pad X 8.0.

    People seem skeptical of this deal as no one at T-mobile or LG know if it, unless corporate didn’t relay the info to the customer service minions.

    EDIT: after getting to my local T-mobile store they told me they had recently gotten a call from corporate about this promo that they weren’t aware when I called earlier in the morning

      If you follow the source link it does take you to an LG redemption page for the deal. Looks like it is an actual deal. It is possible reps aren’t aware of it, but it seems to be real.

    • steveb944

      Definitely legit and reputable as it’s LG’s site on the source link.

      I got the free projector previously offered and they delivered.

  • They_Call_Me_Bruce

    I know it’s an LG promo, but is this deal tied to adding a new line or having an unlimited plan?

    • enoch861

      No, doesn’t seem like it.

    • steveb944

      It’s LG, so you don’t have to jump through T-Mobile’s hoops.

  • steveb944

    Much better than the Samsung deal hosted by T-Mobile due to limited plan offerings.

  • riverhorse

    Hope the V20 is next…

    • They_Call_Me_Bruce

      The V20 was practically BOGO when they ran that 1 day (couple hours) sale for $360 a couple months ago.

  • njikokanoel

    I called both Tmobile and LG and no one knew what I was talking about. Im Skeptical

    • Kevhook

      I called as well. No one from Tmo or LG knew anything about it. I would hate to buy two from a “non participating” store and end up having the rebate bounced. Great deal 500 for two, not so great at 1000 for two – IMO.

      • njikokanoel

        Truth. The terms and conditions say you can buy online or from customer care. As well. I also called a another Tmobile store and they knew about it, claimed it legit. I don’t know…

  • Adrian Nagle

    Can you have two separate purchases? The online submission only has one image upload for receipt. I just purchased one several days ago

    • Adrian Nagle

      Terms and conditions lists “The Offer requires the purchase or lease on an equipment installment plan, in a single transaction, of TWO (2) Qualifying Devices at an authorized, participating T-Mobile retail location during the Purchase Period only.”

  • Mark Bryson

    I just called my local T-Mobile store, they were fully aware of this offer. They set up an appointment for next week to help me get setup.

  • Francisco Peña

    I just got 2 G6s last week. blah.

    HOWEVER… I have a 3rd line with no phone on it. So, since the wife doesn’t care to switch again, I’m doing another Jump (different color) to take advantage of it. Then sell off the 3rd line one when the card comes in.

  • Jason L

    Bad link to the LG promo. No one who works at T-Mobile, myself included, that I have talked t knows anything about this promo. Nor does our LG rep.

    • Icehole

      I am also an employee & it was on the front page of the internal system everything gets posted in yesterday as being confirmed by LG

  • George Salcedo

    The link is no longer active so something was either wrong with the fine print or we have all just been duped.

  • mustang8918

    The link still works but the underscores in the address should be dashes. It also works if you just click the blue continue button off to the right side of the page.

  • Aaron Moore

    Purchased 2 today total was 1145 then submitted to lg overall it went smoothly. Also picked up the 2 free tablets through tmobile.

    • PiCASSiMO

      Did you sign up for a monthly tablet plan for each?

      • Andrew Singleton

        existing lines also qualify.

        • PiCASSiMO

          So there is no additional monthly cost to you? I was under the impression that I would need to have a qualifying data only plan for the tablet.

      • Aaron Moore

        Yes you have to do 2b mo plan but can cancel after you receive your rebate card

  • Johny M

    Obviously it is a good deal, but is it worth it. The GS8 is a much better phone, HTC will release a new one in a couple of days while the Pixel phones, Note8, OP5 and V30, are only a couple months away. Is it worth spending~ $200 for a phone that is is only going to be flagship for only a couple more months at most?
    IDK too many options

    • Andrew Singleton

      is it worth it? 2 x G6 for $500? The answer is a resounding yes.

    • Eshwar Vanaparthi

      i agree.. am thinking between g6 vs op5 and v30. but not sure if there would be deal when new phone comes in.
      OP5 is not going to come for 250 for sure.. same goes with v30.

    • DM725

      I’m not sure it’s a much better phone. I have a Galaxy S8 and in some ways I miss my LG V20. I can tell you if I was buying one of them outright, I don’t think the S8 is 33% better. It’s 2/3rds of the price right now for the G6. It’s a no brainer if I was cross shopping these 2.

  • George Salcedo

    T-Mobile sales told me LG halted this promo and may honor purchases on a case by case basis.

    • Icehole

      T-Mobile Sales huh… Consider the source when your comparing one promo that doesn’t lead to new revenue directly competing with another promo that does..

      • George Salcedo

        I called LG customer care and God what a horrible experience. They said the promo was still on but it was some dude from India so idk man.

    • Corey Jalette

      The promo page is still live so I think that’s false, they would have taken it down ASAP.

  • Tom Norman

    Anybody know if jump on demand is part of this? I’ve read conflicting reports.

    • John

      The Offer requires the purchase or lease on an equipment installment plan, in a single transaction, of TWO (2) Qualifying Devices at an authorized, participating T-Mobile retail location during the Purchase Period only.

      • Tom Norman

        That doesn’t really clear thing up. The G4 rebate from October 2015 had similar language in its terms and conditions, and jod was applicable.

        • Corey Jalette

          It doesn’t say eip, it says purchase or lease. And JOD is a lease so it would apply for JOD, but don’t do it till Monday because I guess tmobile didn’t like lgs promo and it’s up in the air right now.

        • JohnnySocko

          The terms of the offer state that it must be on a single transaction, with both devices showing up on ONE receipt. However, JOD is always a separate transaction in the T-Mobile system, so it would be on two separate receipts no matter what (even if both phones were leased at the same time). Source: The guy at my T-Mobile store showed me the screen while he looked this up.

          Of course, this is all moot until T-Mobile and LG clarify this offer, hopefully today.

  • mattptodd

    I’m being told by TMo Force on twitter that they are working hard to confirm the rebate offer with LG, but do not recommend it because you won’t find out if it won’t work until after the Buyers Remorse period. I’m trigger shy, but world love to do this. Does anyone know for a fact this is fine? I called LG and got one person saying no and another saying yes.

  • George Salcedo

    LG has informed me not to buy the phones until Monday. That’s the day they will get all this straightened out with T-Mobile. T-Mobile apparently didn’t like the fact that LG didn’t require adding a new line to the promo like the crooks at Samsung.

  • DM725

    Well yes and no. I wasn’t in the JOD ecosystem and I wanted to get in to it before they stopped taking new enrollments. So I sold the V20 to a coworker for what I owed on it and signed up for JOD.

  • Tom Norman

    FWIW, T-Mobile told me at about 1 today that the deal was still on, and that they heard that from “on high.” Make of that what you will.

  • francob911 .

    Its monday and the website LG G6 BOGO is still up! Im going to call LG after work just to reconform

  • Tom Norman

    All,

    The LG rebates site has been edited. It now reads:

    “This Offer is sponsored solely by LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A., Inc.
    Please contact LG’s customer support with any questions you may have.”

    I think everyone’s suspicions of T-Mobile being pissed that there was a BOGO without any line stipulations attached to it are correct. Notice how the language above says “is sponsored,” not “was sponsored.”

  • tranceformer978

    The page now reads: “Get a $500 electronic rebate check by email when you purchase two (2) LG G6 devices between May 10, 2017 and May 15, 2017”. Today is the last day to purchase in order to qualify for the rebate.

    • JohnnySocko

      Thanks for the tip. The Terms & Conditions document has not been updated — it still shows the original promotion period of May 10 – June 8.

      Man, I was so excited about this at first. But the whole thing has turned out to be kind of sketchy. Anyway, it looks like I’m excluded no matter what, because the terms call for both phones to be on one receipt, but Jump On Demand will generate two receipts.

      • Tom Norman

        I had Jump on Demand do one receipt. Just have to find a worker willing to deal with you.

        • JohnnySocko

          Hmm… When I was there, the guy showed me his screen so I could see it. When JOD was selected for the first line, the second line was greyed-out. Or, he could do two phones in one transaction, but then JOD was greyed-out. He was totally willing to help me, but the system would only let him do it as described above.

      • Quinn

        Why not buying them without the program?

        • JohnnySocko

          if you mean the promotion: Because I don’t want to spend the extra money on a second phone if I can get it for free.

          If you mean Jump On Demand: Because I would have to pay the balance of my current phone in order to turn it in for a non-JOD G6.

        • Quinn

          no man! I mean as in why buying it through the Jump on Demand program? why not buying it out right and apply for the rebate?

  • Quinn

    It’s been fixed to only from May 10 and May 15, which means today is the last day to purchase the device…
