Some good news for customers looking to grab a deal on some brand new (and some older) T-Mobile smartphones at Walmart. The mega-giant-super retail company is kicking off a new promotion today offering a $50 Walmart gift-card with any two-year contract. The promotion will run from today up until Sunday, June 16th. The full list of devices that will qualify on T-Mobile for this promotion:

  • Samsung Galaxy S 4
  • Samsung Galaxy S 4G
  • Samsung Galaxy S III
  • Samsung Galaxy Note II
  • Samsung Galaxy S Blaze
  • HTC One
  • BlackBerry Z10
  • BlackBerry Q10
  • Nokia Lumia 521
  • Google Nexus 4
  • LG Optimus L9
  • Huawei Summit

All in all not a bad deal, especially when you consider pricing on these devices is generally lower than the competition. A quick reminder that Walmart, along with other nationwide retailers do not offer T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Value Plans but instead offer the one-size-fits-all Classic Plan.

    If only I were due for an upgrade… If I were, I’d go after the One. Don’t really like the fact that it doesn’t have a removable battery or memory card, but I could still deal with it. Oh well. Who knows what will be around by the time I’m due again.

    • Roger Sales

      I can kind of forgive the no SD card since its a 32GB phone. With 16GB phones it really sucks.

      • sapphiraa

        Which is why I went for the 32GB iPhone 5 :)

      • TmoNews_Inuyasha

        Yeah, that’s about the only reason. My work phone is a 16GB, but it’s a GSIII, so I can add a memory card if I want to(don’t see that happening, though, as I only keep some pictures on it of some of the work that we have to keep until the end of the year). I currently have a 32GB card in my personal phone(Amaze), and it’s enough for me.

    Bummer. TMO HTC One shows at 399.

    • Bangincrazy

      Go to the store for proper prices, HTC one is around $149.99

  • hal j.

    Still bummed out that tmo still has no HTC ONE black edition.

  • Vinney

    Grabbed the one today as an exchange from an s4 through an upgrade and didn’t receive the $50 promotion.

  • g2a5b0e

    They STILL have the original Galaxy S, but no S2? That’s weird. Or perhaps they do, but it’s not part of the promotion? Either way, weird.


    This is hardly a deal.A TOTAL RIP-OFF is more like it,whether on or off contract,it’s still more expensive vs a direct sale/upgrade with T-MOBILE.

    Compare all the buying options[:NEW CONTRACT/UPGRADE/ADD-A-LINE/OFF-CONTRACT]:

    • Bangincrazy

      It’s $298.99 at the store, don’t look at the online prices

      • KOLIO

        Fair enough.It’s everyones personal responsibility to do their own price comparison.

  • Brian T.

    It’s too bad Simple Choice isn’t available at non-T-mo retailers yet…. I’m sure it’s caused a bunch of confusion for people given the ads they’re running all over on TV and the web.

  • Brian T.

    Also — anybody heard if T-Mo is going to do a Father’s Day weekend promotion again this year? It was a pretty awesome special last year.

  • Bangincrazy

    People, stop looking at the bad online prices, go to the store for proper prices. The price Tmonews post a while back about the S4 being $198.99 is true in stores, I have checked all 3 in my area. Also the HTC one is around $149.99 as well.

  • Dakota

    What are the prices on these plans if they are not the Simple Mobile plans…I dont see that on the Tmo website

  • Alan713

    i thought TMo cancelled all contracts, no?

  • Ordeith

    Nice to see the Lumia 521 on the list. Getting that phone for the equivalent of $80 would be practically sinful.

  • Loserkilla

    Let’s see how many idiots fall for this, And then come to my store and complain how come they can have a value plan.

    Just an update, the classic plan is only given to new customers. For customer’s upgrade phones, you keep your old plan and you are forced into the 4.5 gb $30 data plan. They tell you at the store you can change it online but you really cannot. Not worth it!!
