Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge on T-Mobile will come with 1 year of free Netflix


If you thought getting unlimited music streaming on your Simple Choice plan was awesome, you’re going to love T-Mobile’s promotion for the launch of the Galaxy S6. Announced on Twitter this morning by John Legere and T-Mobile, the company is going to be offering 12 months of Netflix, for free, to anyone who buys the Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge.

This offer comes alongside the pre-registration sweepstakes offering the chance to win some cool Sammy-branded gadgets.

You’ll be able to use this – as suggested by Legere – to binge watch House of Cards if you like, or catching up on some awesome movies. As someone who uses Netflix every day, this offer seems like a sure-fire way of getting people to buy the new device on T-Mobile’s network. Alongside Simple Choice, Carrier Freedom and Music Freedom, this makes for a very compelling promotion.

According to the fine print, the Netflix offer will be available from March 27th until April 9th, 2015. While codes last.

“Credit equal to the value of 12 months of standard Netflix on the “2 Stream” subscription plan (valued at $8.99/month) provided. To receive Netflix code, submission must be made at by 11:59 PM ET on 5/21/15. Credit must be redeemed by 11:59 PM ET on 6/20/15.”

As of right now, you can’t pre-order the S6 or S6 Edge yet. However, we’re expecting more details on exact time frames for pre-order and launch to come fairly shortly.

Will you be upgrading to the S6 or S6 Edge? Or will you be waiting for the range of new devices that normally come out in the fall?

    so wait launch date is not till april 10th yet offer is from march 27th -april 9th ??

    • Frankwhitess

      Lol… I didnt noticed that… Good catch!

    • Robert

      Sounds like a pre-order promotion that won’t be available once the device goes live.

  • Frankwhitess

    Question : are they going to send me a prepay credit card with the value of 12 month of Netflix or am I going to get 12 month of service added to my current account ??

    • dtam

      it looks like you get a code, I’m assuming that you will just get 12 months added to your account

  • Robert

    With the huge influx of very good high quality phones at much lower prices then the “big guys” I won’t be buying a Galaxy phone again. They are great phones to be sure, but they are the Apple of the Android world imo. You can get just as good for half the price. A free year of Netflix won’t change that. I’d rather have the $108 off the purchase price.

    • IamDefiler

      Not with Samsung pay…

    • HeatFan786

      Depends on what you need with a phone. Samsung has taken major steps that most other OEMS don’t. Fingerprint scanner? HTC and Samsung major OEMs to successfully market devices with them. Payment service? Yet to be seen, but Samsung Pay has leverage. Samsung has the best looking screens out of Android devices. Paying for a phone is relative. If you buy a 128 gb iPhone 6+, then if you use it for all the functionality and space, it’s worth it, if not, then don’t buy it. It’s all about marketing choice.

  • IamDefiler

    IamDefiler huh? IMPOSTER!

    • gmo8492

      U Wot M8?

  • bisayan

    So I assume pre order starts @ march 27? yah? Will I be able to pre order through tmobile website using JUMP!? Can someone pls gives me a heads up how the process go? Im going to JUMP! my lg g3 to either s6 edge or regular s6 (hopefully blue will be available).

    • jesse

      i hope so i have jump and usually they make u wait till launch date to jump due to them not being able to see phone and check for physical damage

      • CalicoKJ

        I was able to use JUMP and preorder a Note 4 last fall. Once it was received I sent back the Note 3 and they credited my account.

    • Epic_Ninja420

      I asked already and was told that they are launching the Black and White first, then gold later on. No plans to bring the blue version……

      • gmo8492

        At least they’re offering the black version, I’m tired of getting the white version all the damn time. Besides that all the other colors are just meh.

        • Jay Holm

          There is NOTHING. “meh” about Topaz Blue!!!

      • Jay Holm

        Gold later on? Hmm….what shall I do? Traditional white now, or wait. I’m not a very patient person, I do plenty enough waiting in life as it is!!!

    • Greg Victor

      T mobile corporate stores will start accepting pre orders on the 27th. Don’t know about the website. Can’t imagine the stores taking pre orders and not the website. But I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

      • Jay Holm

        March 27?!?!?!?!?!? That’s like 2 days away!!!

  • Ray

    Nahh, I would rather buy the Z3 and smooch off my cousin.

    • thepanttherlady

      I seriously hope you meant mooch. LOL

      • jonathan3579

        I wasn’t gonna go there but me too. Lol

      • Ray

        Haha thanks for catching my error. Not gonna edit so it can brighten someone’s day.

      • MC Mickey Lee

        Panttherlady are you married?

        • thepanttherlady


        • MC Mickey Lee

          Oh really, well I was wondering if you would like to see a movie with me and perhaps have dinner afterwards.

        • Medion

          Ah, the traditional dinner and a movie… Just make sure you take her some place classy, like Taco Bell.

          Oh, and does she get to ride on the handle bars?

        • thepanttherlady

          Taco Bell?!!? I’m not good enough for McDonald’s? =P

        • Medion

          I consider Taco Bell a step over McDonald’s. I’m not lovin’ it.

        • MC Mickey Lee

          Hey! What you doing? Can’t you see I’m trying to get laid tonight. Butt out!

        • Medion

          Might me a bit tough with the helmet and arm floaties.

        • MC Mickey Lee

          You have my don’t you panttherlady?

        • Cam Bunton

          Got to be at least worth a KFC, surely? lol

        • Mike

          You wanna eat real chicken right?

        • thepanttherlady

          You’re right! They do have $5 meals……. =D

        • thepanttherlady

          Awww, I appreciate the request but this isn’t a dating site. Thank you for the smile though. :)

        • MC Mickey Lee

          You’re right, and much too direct. Perhaps you could email me to say hello.

        • bisayan

          ahhhhh the struggle is REAL!!!!!!! lolz

        • You’re right this isn’t a dating site, but you are Cute and you do have an Attractive Personality and Mind so I can’t really blame him @thepanttherlady:disqus

        • thepanttherlady

          Thank you for the kind words! :)

      • JaswinderSinghJammu

        They are really close cousins.

      • Cam Bunton

        I don’t know why, but now I have a scene from Home Alone 2 playing in my head… “You were here last night.. smooching with my brother.”

    • patt


    • Android_God

      That is SO HOT!!

    • nice one Ray

  • Bradley Karas

    Sticking with the Note

  • jonathan3579

    I hope this isn’t the replacement for other carriers offering the wireless charger. I already have Netflix and want the charger for free.

    • Roger Sales

      so you’d rather not have to pay for your Netflix account for the next year instead(108$ value)? o.O

      • jonathan3579

        Again, until I know whether this will stack onto my current account… It’s worthless to me.

        • TMobileRules

          It will stack onto your current account. I do remember when I got my LG Flex i was able to do it with the 6 month free of netflix on my current account. So i had paid a month and got 6 months. I didnt have to worry about netflix getting interrupted for the next 7 months.

    • Medion

      Take the money saved with the Netflix code, and buy two wireless chargers?

      • jonathan3579

        Not if it means creating a new account.

        • Medion

          It doesn’t. Day one Chromecast owners got a 3-month version of this (I was one of them). It extends out your next auto pay date.

          So yes, an existing Netflix user can use this.

        • jonathan3579

          Netflix and chromecast are totally separate things though. I have no idea whether Netflix will allow this to stack. I’ve tried other promotions before and that wasn’t the case.

        • Medion

          Reread my post. That went over your head.

        • jonathan3579

          It did but you don’t have to be a dick about it…

    • MadJoe

      You clearly didn’t think this one through…

      • jonathan3579

        Nobody said it was stackable with current subscriptions and I’m not about to start all over with a new account… So yes, I did think this through. Thanks anyway.

    • sosarozay300

      only best buy seems to be doing that, but yeah i hope its not because id rather have the wireless charger than netflix

      • jonathan3579

        I was afraid that might be the case. I hope since this is through Samsung, that tmobile will be inclined to throw a little something in like they did for me with the G2 and M7. We’ll see.

  • ewilts

    I want my S6 Edge NOW!

  • Mark

    It would be nice if the Netflix trial were offered with the HTC M9 as well, but it appears it’s actually Samsung’s promotion, not TMo’s. I’m not overly interested in the Samsung with the HTC coming out at roughly the same time, but the free Netflix might be something to try (I don’t currently have NF myself and don’t have any great compulsion to buy it).

  • Steve

    who pays for Netflix…..each email address is used by 50 million people :)

    • skywalkr2

      Since you are stuck with only 2 streams per login… quite a few.

  • Stocklone

    Please please please sell the green model.

    • they won’t. nor will they sell the blue S6. just the typical white, gold and black unfortunately.

      • Stocklone

        I guess i’ll have to grab the international model then. Hopefully it plays nice with T-Mobile’s bands.

        • nat x

          International models don’t always works well..I would highly recommend getting the one sold by T-Mobile, it will work the best or you’ll miss out on Wi-Fi Calling and a lot of other services exclusive to T-Mobile.

        • Mike Palomba

          Provided the international model has all the bands that t-mobile uses, you shouldn’t have issues. True, you won’t have wifi calling but i haven’t used wifi calling ever and I’m just fine

        • Jay Holm

          Yeah but what are the chances the international version has Band 12?

        • Mike Palomba

          I’m not really sure but unless you live in an area where T-Mobile has purchased or plans to purchase band 12, it shouldnt be too big of a deal.

        • Jay Holm

          I live in Bridgeport Ct and work in Stratford, yes Band 12 is already deployed here, I just need a compatible handset.

        • Mike Palomba

          If you wait a couple months or so there will probably be a much wider selection of band 12 devices, or this one will decrease in price as new ones come out. I wouldn’t buy it as soon as it comes out because I have a feeling the value is going to rapidly depreciate

        • that’s what i’m hoping too.

  • Joe

    Well I cant really w8 to upgrade anymore cuz I still am using an s2 and my dad is using an s3 so ya…Now I still need to find a way to pay for it.

  • vinnyjr

    Free year of Netflix is a good deal, worth almost $100.00. Im hoping T-Mobile offers the 128gb option. The green and red models are beautiful. Come on T-Mobile, don’t let the other Carriers push you away from those colors. Many, many customers are going to be looking for those colors, not having them will effect sales.

    • g2a5b0e

      What red are you referring to? There were only four colors announced for each variant.The S6 & Edge were both announced in black, white, & gold. The S6 has the blue & the Edge has the green. Was there another announcement?

  • Bob

    Is this a foreshadowing of the next uncarrier?

  • Dean Smith

    Don’t care for netflix . Would be nice if they offer some deals on S6 for long time customers and if Tmobile adds TuneinRadio as free music stremaing.

    • Ozgur Sen

      Tunein radio was on music freedom for some reason they took it out.

    • BillSmitty

      Yeah, I’d rather have a $100 credit on the phone than Netflix. I may call retention and see if they will swing that deal, but I doubt it. Worth a shot.

  • SirMakoto

    so this promotion should be available for all that buys the s6 or s6 edge, US customers that is, and most likely prizelogic will be the one to deal with, codes are stackable to current netflix users as well.

  • erikdrakon

    For people still wondering it is for new and existing customers, I also saw a comment that it might only be for pre-orders based on the dates here’s the official info off the promotion site so you’ll have to purchase within the first 2 days of release if you don’t pre-order to qualify

  • dronc

    Cam, whats the word on the s6 from t-mobile supporting band 12? It seems from the specs that it does not! huge problem in my eyes. Somehow the att version supports band 12, ridiculous!

    • ngterry1

      What! omg they better have band 12 on tmobile s6

      • BillSmitty


  • Josh

    do the new samsung handsets support band 12 on Tmo?

    • ngterry1

      i want to know this too

    • Fabian Cortez

      These new ones, yes.
