Have you talked to your mothers lately?

Looks like one of our favorite T-mobile gimmicks is coming back for a 2 day only special. Waived activation fees!! Here is the catch, the promotion will ONLY be offered via an advertisement on the MSN.com home page. From that point it will take you down a special purchase path which will waive the activation fee upon successful ordering.

Here are the bullet points for this mothers day two day special:

  • Advertised on the MSN home page only.
  • This offer will be honored via the Web and Telesales channels only.
  • Offer not available in T-Mobile Retail stores.
  • Price matching is not approved for Web and Telesales offers.
  • This offer is only for customers who activate a new line of service through T-Mobile.com.
    • Each new line of service will receive a waived activation fee.
  • FlexPay monthly contract customers are not eligible.

I guess I can’t complain, a waived activation fee is a waived activation fee, but come on, through msn.com only? I really want to know who still uses msn.com as a home page? Let us know in the comments, when is the last time you visited that site?

Thrown in with this is a change in the Nokia 6263 pricing, looks like it will drop free with a new 2 year activation. As of right now, the promotional pricing includes a mail in rebate, but no more for Mothers Day weekend this bad boy 3G phone (in NYC) is all free. This way when 3G launches in your city, your Mothers will let you know!

  • It will be matched in retail stores. Just mention where you saw it, and if possible bring a copy of the page printed off of the Internet.

    No RSM will let a sale walk that his/her own company is offering someplace else.

    I can imagine the deal will be matched in store as well. Though the “official” policy is an online/telesales offer only.

  • TmoBin

    Why worry about a $35 activation fee when dealers sell their phones $50-200 less than the website

    Can’t do anything until the 1-800-flowers.com homepage roadblock comes down. From my experience with online advertising, this week, each day is usually a homepage roadblock for a publisher. Meaning, T-Mobile has purchased two full days of ad space on the homepage of MSN.com. I would check the site like once per day re-freshing the page and see if there is only one ad appearing. If so, it’s a roadblock and wait till the next day to see what the new ad will be.

  • superb(special) locality. So to authority!

  • I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you down the road!
