T-Mobile launches Galaxy Note 8 Buy One, Get One deal

galaxynote8orchidgreytmo

As expected, T-Mobile today launched a Buy One, Get One deal for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

T-Mobile customers can now get a second Galaxy Note 8 (or a Galaxy S8 or S8+) with the purchase of a Galaxy Note 8. Both phones must be purchased on EIP, and you’ll need to add a line for the second device. T-Mobile also notes that you must “maintain an active, eligible rate plan for each eligible Galaxy phone”.

EIP pricing for the Galaxy Note 8 is set at $210 down and $30 per month for 24 months.

Once you buy both of your phones, you’ll need to point your browser to T-Mobile’s Promotions Center and enter the promo code 17CSAMN8BOGO. T-Mo will then send you a prepaid MasterCard card to cover the cost of your second device.

One other detail that’s worth noting is that this deal is available for customers that’ve already pre-ordered a Note 8, so long as they meet the requirements of the deal.

The Galaxy Note 8 is one of the most high-end smartphones on the market, so this BOGO is a pretty nice deal so long as you don’t mind adding a new line to your account.

This offer will be available for a limited time. Are you going to take advantage of it?

    This is not available for jump on demand pre-orders which is BS!

    • Victor

      Oh man and I was just Bout to call and open up another line smh

      • Brandon

        Ya, I was on the phone for an hour and 6 different people. 4 of them was a surprise transfer, they didn’t tell me they was transferring me to someone else.

        Yesterday I requested a line cancel then found out afterwards about the bogo. So halfway through “you won’t qualify for bogo if you cancel your extra line”. Then let’s get cancel the request to cancel the line. Finally at the last person “you can’t qualify because the first pre-order is jod, we’re gonna have to cancel the pre-order and set it up as a regular jump”. I just hung up on them!

        • Victor

          Wow that’s crazy

    • Bklynman

      What? That sucks,I don’t have JUMP,but for the people that do it sucks. I am going wait until the 9/6,to order mine.

    • noh1bvisas

      because you are only leasing, not buying

      • Brandon

        Still stupid for the people who didn’t want to make a down payment, surprise a week later can’t qualify for bogo. I make a bigger monthly payment just to get screwed out of promotions. Bogo should be offered when the pre-orders starts. When you wait too long to pre-order you get caught up in back orders and long delays for when you get you phone in the mail. Then you wait even longer for the samsung promotions free gifts cause you at end of the line and better chance of running out of stock!

        • noh1bvisas

          not really. you already get a deal by being able to upgrade. don’t be greedy :P

    • GersonT1000

      I’m planning on finishing paying off my current lease and just go with EIPs in the future. I already started to set up by “jumping” from the G5 to an LG Stylo 2 Plus (and put a V20 on another line during the $360 deal to use on my line). All the good deals are not offered with JOD. The good thing was being able to switch phones and get freebies, but I’ve stopped doing even this because flagship phones are too expensive. I’d rather wait 6 months or so and end up paying $200-300 less. That money can go into buying the “freebies” myself for a price wayyy less than their supposed MSRP value.

      • Bonedatt

        Smart

  • Bonedatt

    Unless you really use the S-Pen, the LG V30 may be a better buy when pricing is announced, as the Note8 isn’t network future proof since it doesn’t support the new Band 71 from T-Mobile.

    • noh1bvisas

      seriously, tired of hearing about band 71 – especially since it’s not really being rolled out nationwide. very limited rural areas only for the next 2 years ;)

      • Andrew Singleton

        where did you get that information?

        • noh1bvisas

          there’s an article on the front page of this site about it.

        • Andrew Singleton

          Alex explained in the most recent article that “T-Mobile previously announced that it plans to use some of its 600MHz spectrum to build a nationwide 5G network. T-Mo aims to begin deploying 5G coverage in 2019.” 600mhz block can be deployed as LTE before it’s deployed as a 5G technology, and that has already started. He’s also noted in a previous article “In addition to lighting up its first 600MHz cell sites, T-Mobile today revealed other parts of the U.S. where it plans to go live with 600MHz coverage in 2017. They are:

          Wyoming
          Northwest Oregon
          West Texas
          Southwest Kansas
          The Oklahoma panhandle
          Western North Dakota
          Maine
          Coastal North Carolina
          Central Pennsylvania
          Central Virginia
          Eastern Washington”

          It’s fairly obvious that these have been identified as areas with weak signal currently, so getting a V30 would unarguably provide better service.

        • noh1bvisas

          if you happen to be in those areas, yes. if not, then there is no value and no reason to set one’s hair on fire about it.

    • kev2684

      Once you Samsung Pay, It’s hard going back to Android Pay lol

      • noh1bvisas

        good point. i can hardy ever get the android pay to work. maybe 20% of the time. seems to be more of a problem with the stores than the phone or google, though. samsung pay is one of the reasons i’m switching.

  • pda96

    For those who are thinking of opening a new line just to get a free phone and then dropping it after getting the rebate, it would appear TMO has just cut off that escape route.

    • GersonT1000

      How so? When they say you must maintain an eligible line, that doesn’t keep you from paying off the phone first and then canceling the line (after you get the prepaid card).

      • Bklynman

        Yeah,that what I want to know too.

      • pda96

        Perhaps I misunderstood. But this is what the author wrote: “T-Mobile also notes that you must “maintain an active, eligible rate plan for each eligible Galaxy phone”.

        I don’t know. The word “active”, to me, implies that u have to keep that line for some time, more than just a couple of months.

        What’s your interpretation?

        • Bonedatt

          Another interpretation could be that an active rate plan is the one you used to get the BOGO offer. You must maintain that one even if you cancel the new additional line 8 weeks down the road.

        • noh1bvisas

          that’s the way i read the fine print, too. i’m really wondering if it is worth the hassle.

          you do have to pay the $210 down + taxes and delivery for both phones immediatly.

          taxes, delivery, a couple months extra-line charges, activation fees. then waiting for the visa. cancelling the line, then paying it off. on and on.

          then you have to try and sell the phone. who knows what the phone will be worth a couple months down the line. we’ll be into xmas then, and prices always drop around the holiday.

        • GersonT1000

          If you and someone else on your plan are planning to keep the phone, it’s an amazing offer. But if you’re planning on selling one or both like me, then you have to think about it. i still think I can sell both and make around $200 profit minimum.

        • noh1bvisas

          oh, yeah. if both are keeping it, it’s a very sweet deal. i’m getting $300 for trading in an old g4, so i think it’s a wash for me – and less hassle.

        • DILAW IDDAHLA

          It’s funny how Samsung is giving$300 trade in if you turn in the G4 and only$150 if you are trading in the g4 and buying a galaxy S8.
          The note 8 is not worth$1000 and Samsung knows it. The phone should be sold for $600 if you ask me and i think Samsung is still making a profit when they give or sell 2 of them for $1000. I can’t believe people are paying these high prices for phones that drop few hundreds 3 months after they come out. I bought a Tmobile Samsung Galaxy S8 directly from Samsung for $419 and traded in my g4. The G4 wasnt going to give me $200 because i have had it for over 2 years almost and the phone is known to have issues with the bootloader. The Note 8 is a great phone, but not worth $1000. I mean you can get a nice camera, laptop and a mid-grade phone for $1,000

        • noh1bvisas

          it’s capitalism, for better or worse. i wouldn’t pay full price for the note, but i will pay $630.

        • pda96

          It’s a possibility. But I’m sticking to my gun mainly because of this wording “..active, eligible rate plan for EACH eligible Galaxy phone”. If you cancel the free phone line after 8 wks, it’s no longer consider active, is it?

          Come on, think about it. I’m sure many people tried this method just to get a new phone. TMO can’t be THAT gullible. They must have spotted this tactic and are now putting a stop to it.

        • GersonT1000

          I think the way they were trying to combat this before was when they gave you bill credits for 24 months. That way if you cancel your service you will not get the rest of the 24 credits, basically locking you into a sort of contract if you wanted the entire discount. Thankfully they seem to still be doing these offers where they give a prepaid Mastercard.

        • keepitreal25

          You are correct in your thoughts , when these customers cancel their second line, they get billed out for the remainder of the balance on the phone and if they did something else with the debit card other then pay the eip, it then can be looked at as not necessarily free!

  • mikedg

    Am I missing something, the links posted just goto the faq about the free camera or charger. I dont see BOGO

  • noh1bvisas

    indeed. nothing against the v30, i have a v20, now. very good phone.

    • Bonedatt

      Yep! The V20 is an awesome device. I own one also, but I’m more of a Note user (been using the Note series since 2011 because of the S-Pen). Samsung just lost their mind with pricing of the Note8 so I’m stuck with my Note 4. I just wish LG will consider seriously competing against Samsung by releasing comparable stylus software, and adding it to their already solid V series offering.

      • noh1bvisas

        i have a note 8 on pre-order. pre-ordered directly from samsung because they are giving me $300 trade-in on a g4. keeping the v20 as a backup for now.

        • francob911 .

          Having better coverage with the V30 is better in the long run vs Note 8

        • noh1bvisas

          how will i be getting better coverage with a v30? maybe you should read the 600mhz article on the front page before answering that ;)

        • francob911 .

          In a year or 2 The V30 is will have better coverage according to T-Mobile . Its a no brainer in getting the V30 vs the Note IMO

        • noh1bvisas

          “according to TMO”. lol. ok. obviously, you didn’t read WHERE the 600mhz is being implemented. pretty much nowhere.

  • PandaTurtle

    Great deal for new customers, but it just sucks that existing ones are left in the cold. I would have loved for them to have some sort of trade-in bonus like Sprint… But meh, they’re trying to expand their customer base, so it’s fair.

    • noh1bvisas

      order directly from sammy. they have some GREAT trade-in specials. they offer financing, too.

      • PandaTurtle

        I would, but I got stuck with an S7 Edge after the Note 7 fiasco last year. I got Jump, so I can switch easier to the Note 8, and they’ll at least cover the half of the S7 I didn’t use. I wish I could take advantage of Samsung’s offer, but after having to pay off this phone, it wouldn’t do me much good.

        • noh1bvisas

          jump seems to complicate things a lot. i read they are ending it next year. it was on this site.

        • steadymobb

          That’s not accurate. Tmobile put out a memo saying that starting in August of 2018 that they may start to require a downpayment for base models on jump.. If you currently have it, you will still have it. Now whether or not they get rid of it for new customers is separate.

        • THXULTRA

          I can see them ending the old Jump plan since they have Jump on Demand that allows for equipment upgrades. They do charge a support upgrade charge now with Jump on Demand though and are going to require a down payment in August of 2018 even on base phones. I question if Jump On Demand is worth it starting in August 2018… Seems like you would be better off buying the phone and selling it at that point. Think you would be out less money.

      • samsung freud

        I pre-ordered an unlocked version from samung. I understand it may take longer, but I really value an unlocked phone without the tmo bloat.

      • Petey07

        I ordered my thru Samsung with the note 7 discount, since less hassle and offer 0.00% interest for 24 months.

        This deals looks good too, but have to pay $420 (two downpayment) plus tax on the EIP.

    • Bemi

      I’m an existing customer and I took advantage of the BOGO offer. Just added an new line. That I can cancel once the debit card comes in and I pay off thr phone first.

  • rebirthofcool

    with the launch of LG V30 and imminent arrival of the new iphone Samsung is getting desperate

    • noh1bvisas

      this isn’t a deal offered by Samsung. all the major carriers are fighting for market share – this is an attempt to lure customers to TMO.

      • Alize Jen Alfonso Martinez

        Exactly! The only desperate one seems to be the one looking for something to bash on Samsung but failed.

  • DrScope

    i just did this deal, the tmo rep i spoke to confirmed that once i get the rebate i can drop the new line… no questions asked. worst case 2 month of a new line so 100 bucks. if you sell the second unit on ebay, you basically got a free note 8. Another happy customer ;)

    • Limeybastard

      Fingers crossed for you that it will be two months of paying for that line. I very much doubt it. More like 6 months.

      • flnycus

        at least

    • flnycus

      Beware, reps tell you whatever you want to hear, unless anyone has actually done this, the small print indicates you are liable for the costs.

  • Bemi

    I did my BOGO yesterday… Like everyone said rep confirmed that I have to have active usage on new line. Once card comes it pay it off and I can cancel the line.

    • flnycus

      Arent you liable for the cost of the line too??? I dont think its that easy

  • kisun oh

    ok, called rep asking about the BOGO deal, says that I have to switch to the Tmobile One unlimited plan to get this offer for the Note 8. total b.s. I knew about the adding a new line for the second phone, but really, they just trying to make everyone change to the Tmobile one plan. Deceiving Tmobile. Not sure if the rest of you folks, if this is true or not.

    • Android_God

      I’m in the same boat. I’m not going to pay $50 more per month just to get a free phone. This makes ZERO sense. These fuckers call themselves, “uncarrier” and then turn around and eliminate the lower cost, lower data plans.

      • keepitreal25

        Why does every deal have to be for you, your 50 a month a claim is bogus , you can Def get a rep to add unlimited data to your line for 30 a month

        • SirStephenH

          So then he’d be paying $30 more per month… How does that make things any better?

    • keepitreal25

      You just have to have an truly unlimited data , it has to be worthwhile for them to give you a free phone , especially when you can jump ship soon as that rebate card hits . Come on !

    • noh1bvisas

      nothing is free :)

    • Julien Pierre

      Yeah. Also, the promo is ONLY if you put the device on EIP. If you want to pay the full amount upfront – say, to get credit extended extended warranty on the device – the BOGO promotion doesn’t apply. So stupid , they don’t want your money !

  • Rosa Rodriguez

    My note 8s are showing delivery by UPS for TODAY! I just got the text and checked the tracking and yup, UPS confirms it. Anyone else?

    • Brandon

      HA me too!!!!

  • SirStephenH

    Has anyone ever wondered how much these devices would cost if they didn’t pad the price for all of these “discounts”.

  • SirStephenH

    The N8 is just a bloated, sh***y V30 with a stylus and no band 71 support. Pass.

    I’m just hoping that my replacement V20’s camera glass holds out till I can “cheaply” Jump it to a V30.

  • Billy_Boy2019

    Awesome job to John Legere and the entire T-Mobile team including tmonews for coming up with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 BOGO deal and executing it flawlessly! My wife and I are currently enjoying both of our brand new devices, thanks again!

    ONE SUGGESTION: With the new iPhone just around the corner please give those of us who did take advantage of the Note 8 BOGO the option of either calling in to pay one off one of the Note 8s or send us our MasterCard way before the debut of the iPhone!

  • flnycus

    when is the s8 gonna drop in price?? its been out for ages at 750…
