Best Buy has been known to run a fabulous deal on T-Mobile smartphones now and then, which is why you should take advantage of this new promotion. Through February 9th, signing up via Best Buy’s website will award you a $50 Best Buy gift card with the purchase and activation of a new mobile phone on a two-year agreement. Unfortunately, Best Buy retail locations don’t sell T-Mobile so the company will allow you to purchase online through It’s really very simple, just add your mobile phone number and email address and voila, you are registered.

The offer doesn’t specify brand new activations only, so we’re betting that qualifying upgrades will work just fine with this offer as well. There’s no commitment, and if you don’t take advantage of the offer before the end of the year, it simply goes away. Sound good? Register at the Best Buy link below:

    I’m a value plan customer with an over 2 year old Samsung Vibrant.
    Sometime this year I’ll probably want to upgrade it (I’m waiting for LTE).

    Now Classic Plans are bye-bye no? So this 2 year contract stipulation is for a Value plan?

    What’s the best way for a value plan customer to get a new phone?
    I guess T-Mobile will let you pay in installments after a down payment but they probably won’t have the best price.

    Interested in knowing what you all recommend.

      I’ve always known T-Mobile to have the lowest retail price on the phones, when compared to other authorized sellers. Ebay or craigslist may have phones cheaper, especially when they are no longer new releases.

      Being that this offer is from Best Buy, I would think that it’s for the Classic plan as of now. I don’t know what will happen after the Classic plans are no longer offered.

      If you want to use the EIP on a Value plan, T-Mobile is your only option as far as I know.

    and you can use that $50 toward the purchase of a new phone in a year when T-Mobile stops supporting the one you bought.

    yea this perfect for new custos n 2year ppl but if u arent qualified it dont make sense to pay 600 or 450 for a bb giftcard

  • I just bought the Galaxy SIII – $149 at and yea I know the Galaxy S4 comes out soon.

  • c-fu

    T-mo customers kind of get hosed. Reading the details on the promotion, if you do the upgrade/purchase in store, you can use the gift card TOWARD your new phone. As we all know, BB doesn’t carry T-mo phones in store anymore :(

  • Don’t waste your money, don’t waste your time, it’s a trap
