T-Mobile Galaxy Note 8 BOGO deal launching September 1, leak shows

galaxynote8greytmo2

T-Mobile has offered a few Buy One, Get One deals on the Samsung Galaxy S8, and now it looks like T-Mo is gearing up to offer a BOGO deal on the Galaxy Note 8, too.

Documents shared with TmoNews show that T-Mobile is planning to launch a Buy One, Get One deal on the Galaxy Note 8 on September 1st. According to the leaked docs, the limited time deal will be available to customers on T-Mobile One and Simple Choice Unlimited plans.

With this deal, you’ll need to buy a Galaxy Note 8 on EIP and then add a line with a second Galaxy Note 8, a Galaxy S8, or a Galaxy S8+ on EIP. After you buy your two phones, you’ll need to go to T-Mobile’s Promotions Center and enter the promo code 17SAMN8BOGO, and then you’ll receive a prepaid MasterCard card to cover the cost of your second device.

One other detail worth noting is that, according to the leaked documents, this deal is retroactive for pre-orders. This means that customers that’ve already pre-ordered a Galaxy Note 8 on EIP can take advantage of this deal.

With all of the Galaxy S8 BOGO deals that we’ve seen, many folks have been expecting that T-Mobile would launch a similar offer for the Note 8. Some will probably be disappointed that the deal requires you to add a line, but considering that T-Mo’s Galaxy S8 BOGO deals had the same requirement, it’s not a surprise to see it in the Note 8 deal as well.

If T-Mobile does end up launching a Galaxy Note 8 BOGO deal, will you take advantage of it?

Thanks, tipsters!

    Dang! I dont need another line.

  • Petey07

    I was wondering what If I jump on this deal (have to cancel the samsung pre-order) & I open a second line, but Once I get the prepaid card & used it to pay off the EIP balance on the second phone; Will I be able to cancel the new line and will that affect the second phone deal?

    • Philip

      Someone that had the S8 BOGO before should be able to chime in.

      • Steven

        I have the s8 bogo just got my rebate card and can cancel but the new line somehow has a 10.00 discount applied to it so with the 10 dollar kickback and the 10 dollar discount the line is free. But getting back to the question, yes wait for the rebate card to come and then cancel. At most it will cost you 10 dollars a month for 3 months tops if you don’t use the line and get kickback while waiting for the rebate to come

        • ggfb20

          How is it $10 per month? I want to get my son a phone and need to add a line, if I could get that line for cheap that would be great…

        • Steven

          For me wiith tmobile one it’s 20 dollars for the extra line than I think they put a promotion on it that brought it down to 10 dollars then since I don’t use it it gets the kickback discount of 10 dollars which makes it free

        • Petey07

          Sounds like a deal, since its back-up line and not using any data, that kickback should help waive out the extra line fee.

        • Petey07

          I wonder since I have Jump, will I be able to Jump from my iPhone 7+ to the Note 8 and be able to get this promo?

        • Brian

          Do you still have to put the money down and pay sales tax on the 2nd phone?

        • Steven

          Yes, I believe that is what It was with the s8 at tmobile corporate store. I ended up getting a crazy deal at costco. No money down buy one get one and I ended up with 2 free televisions with them. I just came back from costco to see if they were doing anything but they said right now they wont be doing anything with the pre order but maybe when the phone actually comes out

    • jose rodriguez

      Should be no problem as long as wait to get the card

    • Muhammad Ali

      Yes you can cancel the new line.I did this with S8 bogo deal with no problem.

      • Petey07

        Great, I think this deal is probably much better than the Note 7 owner discount via Samsung, since S8/S8+ is probably worth more than $425.

        I think I might just do this deal instead, and keep the note 8 and once I get the pre-paid card for the S8+, just sell it or keep as back-up and cancel that new line. Probably going cancel the Samsung order.

        • Stephen

          If you have any free line promos from last year, just know that removing lines may cause you to lose that promo. If you don’t have any free lines, go for it.

        • MadJoe

          I keep seeing this, but no one explains why. If I cancel the new number, not the number associated with the free line, what reason would T-Mo have to cancel the free line promo? Is it in the terms or something?

  • DSORBgoggles

    Don’t need another line…is the issue…my wife has an older phone and would probably like a new phone, but i don’t know how I could swing it without getting a new line

    • RobertH

      Get the new line, swap sims & keep the new line as a backup phone line for $10 a month.

      • DSORBgoggles

        that is what I did

    • arandomperson7

      You do realize TMobile has no contracts and you can do as you wish with that line after you get your rebate.

      • Clifton K. Morris

        I thought there’d be something that made it seem like a way for authorized retailer channel lift sale using a business techique called “false churn”…

  • brybry

    I’ll wait for the one directly from Samsung

    • Philip

      You sure Samsung going to do it for the Note 8?

      • Stephen

        If I had to put money on it, they will in due time. May have to wait a bit.

  • Iphart

    Ok TMO, I hope you do the same when new iPhones come out!

    • steveb944

      100% doubtful.

    • MadJoe

      Apple strictly forbids those kinds of promotions so you’re SOL.

      • HeatFan786

        No they do not. AT&T ran BOGOs with the iPhone 7 before.

  • Nate

    Same boat for me. I really don’t need the extra line or I would consider it.

    • Jose

      Yo can cancel the line when you get the prepaid card. That’s what I did when I got the BOGO s8no issues

      • Stephen

        Be warned if you have free lines from last year and you do this, you will likely lose your free line.

        • Jose

          Yeah I don’t have free lines. I did the promo for the s8 and everything went smooth

        • MadJoe

          Why would you lose your free line?

        • Stephen

          You would have to go back and look at the terms and conditions associated with the free lines. I know the 2 free lines last Thanksgiving had verbiage that basically said more lines could be added, but removing lines (new or existing) would cause you to lose the promo.

        • chunk

          The free lines had a year of no removals clause along with it. Remove any line before that year is up and you’ll lose them. Although if i remember correctly those were offered in November. Which is 3 months away. So some may be able to pull off still keepin them after cancelling any added lines for this bogo.

      • Robert Prescott

        How long did you wait to cancel the extra line?

        • Jose

          It was about 2 to 3 months, but it’s usually 25 per line and 5 discount if auto pay, then I had kickback turned on didn’t go over 2gb and got another 10 credit so I payed 10 for that new line for three months do total of 30 bucks. No we for the free device I payed 3 months of it so 30×30 = 90 but in the end you get those 90 back

        • Tony Castro

          At the moment you order the phone is whatever down + taxes per phone then if the order is over the phone or in the store you get charged a $25 upgrading convenience fee for one of the phone, and also because of the 3rd line you also have to pay another 25 dollars for the activation kit (i remember it used to be for free) add that the 2-3 months of paying the extra line (if they have it back on promo is like $35 or $45 can’t remember) the debit card just have the amount of a phone not for the rest, to my understanding. I tried to get the s8 promo over the phone but every person in India was giving me a different information and prices that after I placed my order I cancelled it the next morning and what a nightmare it has become. Any transaction or changes you do, ask for any transcript in an email so you do not get overcharged and try to get your hard earn money like they tried with me, that’s why I do not trust any auto pay because you will be paying for extra that you don’t have. Also when you cancel it takes a month to get your money back, so if you have an Amex pay with it so you can do a charge back if TMO try to be slick with your money

        • KelaRavenwood

          The taxes are something T-mobile does not have a choice on the government forces them to collect those even on free phones. It is also why there is always some waiting period to get your money back. If they just hand you a (retail) nearly 1k phone they would have to 1099 you and you would have to pay income tax on it. Just ask anyone who has gotten a free car on a game show

        • Tony Castro

          I am not complaining about taxes, sales taxes are sales taxes. Now when you are told over the phone that “as soon as we get the phones back, you get your money back in your account” nobody back then told me that as soon as they get the phones returned and not opened, you have to wait an additional 14 business days to get the money back, hence 1 month to get the money back.

          And after that tmobile was still trying to collect the money (eip) for the phones that i returned for the next 2 billing cycles. Thank god i had on written that i would not pay more than $110 a month, otherwise i would be paying more than the $110 and taking them to a small claim court.

          My post is to show that is not only the down payment + taxes per phone, but also all the hidden fees that the people over in india won’t tell you in addition of when you call 3 times to get a qoute you will get 3 different prices for that 3rd line

  • kb

    Definitely, I will be taking T-Mobile up on this offer. I’ve had Tmo service for 15+ years, love it and the company. And, I greatly appreciate these offers!

  • Brian Wolfe

    Do we still get the other promotion as well… wireless charger or 360 camera?

    • Andrew Singleton

      Yes, that’s a Samsung promo so double dipping is totally legit.

    • chunk

      Yep. And you’d get two of those. Or one of each. Your call.

  • Ascertion

    Damn it. Not again.

    With this deal, you’ll need to buy a Galaxy Note 8 on EIP and then add a line with a second Galaxy Note 8, a Galaxy S8, or a Galaxy S8+ on EIP.

    • Clifton K. Morris

      Sometimes I wonder if executives at T-Mobile get to split amongst themselves the activation fees collected.

      • Android_God

        ABSOLUTELY! How else will they get their gigantic bonuses?

    • Tony Chen

      but note 8 is worth 930 dollars tho? worth it

    • Sayahh

      Can I add a free line? ;p

  • jm33561

    Would the BOGO work for Jump on Demand if still adding the additional line?

  • ac

    I’m hoping Samsung offers the BOGO deal, similar to what they did with the S8. It was for the T-Mobile variant also, but they didn’t require additional line, devices could be paid in full, and the credit was within a few days, not a few weeks.

    • HeatFan786

      Not any time soon right?

      • Ashlie Grotegut

        IIRC, the b1g1 promo offered by Samsung wasn’t that long after launch, but I could be mistaken. I agree though, I’ll hold out for a b1g1 from Samsung directly.

        • Haze1nut

          It was after the promos, though. So you swapped those out for whatever 2 months of an added line wouldve cost you. You may lose out more than you think you gained.

      • ac

        No clue. I’m just saying that I hope they have the same deal for the Note8, like they did with the S8.

        • HeatFan786

          But that also required a trade in right through Samsung?

  • Android_God

    So they eliminate the affordable plans and don’t offer any deals to those of us still on those plans. Thanks T-Mobile!

  • iancc

    add a line ;(

  • pda96

    Pass. I’ll wait for a similar deal from Samsung instead.

  • Dark Ages

    Doesn’t sound like sales are going crazy. If Apple releases new phone to luke warm response then all Smart phone prices will probably start falling.

  • Bklynman

    Mmmmm,was going to do this with Lg,with there BoGo,and free tablet,move on All in one 55 plan,what Alex doesn’t mention you also get a free Tab E,.really wanted the Lg G pad x2.,wonder if Tmo will let me swap it G pad since they both are the same price.

    • noh1bvisas

      according to the article the 55+ plan does not qualify for the BOGO offer. that tablet isn’t free, either. you have to sign up for a data plan.

      • Bklynman

        Mmmm,I will see what they tell me,when I call. I have data plan with them already from few yrs back with different free tablet offer,if they tell me no,I will take it from there. I might do it anyway with 55 plan,get $10. off what I am paying,plus get kickback on the line for not going over 2 gigs data too,reduce my bill to $20.

  • Rosa Rodriguez

    Ugh. We just ordered two but they were upgrades. They need to appreciate existing customers.

    • MadJoe

      Cancel one, open a new line with the Note 8 as the device and go to the website and claim your prepaid gift card. Then cancel the extra line once you receive it.

      • Philip

        My 4th line is free. Can I cancel it now? Then few days later order this BOGO deal and activate on the 4th line?

        • MadJoe

          I believe you can order it now without having to cancel your free line, however I am hearing the free line will end up being the line you have to cancel in order to cancel any. So I guess you need to make sure that it’s still worth it for you in that instance.

        • Dysown

          I got the Magenta 2 lines free promo a while back. If I add a new line and then cancel it will I lose the promo?

        • Kirblar

          If you’re on the March “This One’s On Us” promo, you’ll lose the free line if you cancel any lines before your one year anniversary.

        • chunk

          The first free line promo was in November. So some lucky folks may still be able to keep them since it takes around 3 months to get the prepaid cards.

    • Limeybastard

      Im sure they do appreciate customers , but not that much LOL

  • Petey07

    Since these are for EIP, I wonder what the upfront cost for the s8+, since the note 8 is $210

    • Tony Castro

      i think it was $70+ dollars when they had the BOGO promotion

  • Good

    What’s the point, add a line for who

    • Geronemo3

      U can cancel 2nd line after 2-3 months once u get the prepaid card and have paid off 2nd line. That’s what rep told me when I did S8+ BOGO with add a line. So ur paying like $20/month for 3 months for 2nd line not bad at all.

      • Jordan Guru

        Thank you for this information about the second line…I really didn’t need to keep a second line

      • noh1bvisas

        i’d wait for the fine print. i just checked – it’s $30/month/line for me. i highly doubt you can add a line for only 2 months and get the phone for free.

        • Haze1nut

          Ive been doing that for years now. Ive gotten an iphone se, gs7 and gs8 for free and cancelled the line as soon as ive gotten my prepaid mastercard… but you go ahead and keep doubting it

        • noh1bvisas

          oh, that’s different. someone with “nut” in their name posts something, so it’s true.

        • chunk

          Lmfao did someone with a retrded political statement as a username, actually just call out someone else’s innocent nut username? That’s hilarious. Btw, i moved to the US on an H1B visa. Biomechanical Engineer. Suck it, sport.

        • noh1bvisas

          flagged and blocked, sport.

  • Moltenfyre

    just talked to a rep this isn’t a rumor, sadly it is a add a line promo

    • noh1bvisas

      yep. 30 bucks a line to add.

    • Haze1nut

      Yeah, so sad that you have to pay for 2 months, at 20/month, plus taxes for a note8, before you get reimbursed and can cancel the line… That’s outrageous. They should give them away just for nothing… /sarcasm

      • noh1bvisas

        how did the math break down?
        +taxes
        +delivery
        +fees
        +cost of extra line for a couple months
        what did you end up selling the phone for?

        • chunk

          Delivery? Fees? Are you buying a car? It’s $20 even. Taxes included. Each month. That’s $40. Easy to figure out. And I’m not even a mathematician…

          Plus taxes on the value of the device. Easily much less than what you should be able to sell it for

        • noh1bvisas

          tmo charges for delivery. new, sealed, s8s are selling for 550 on swappa. is it worth the hassle?

        • Limeybastard

          I cant be bothered to earn my $$$ like this, especially since most of T Mobile promos Ive had the misfortune of using , fail.

        • noh1bvisas

          yep. i had a hell of a time getting the $200 promo on my v20. even then, it was a bill credit, not a pre-paid visa.

        • Tony Castro

          free delivery (5 days standard delivery) Downpayment + taxes + $25 bucks for sim card kit for one phone, second “free” phone is downpayment +taxes +$25 bucks for convenience activation fee (ordering the phones over the phone or at a store) so when they had the s8 on a bogo i paid $200 dollars between taxes and activation fees and the additional line is like $45 bucks

        • chunk

          When i bought the bogo i paid the taxes and sim kit and line at $10/month (20with autopay minus 10 for kickback) and that was it. This is the first time hearing about any other fees. You cant count down payment on the regular s8 because they gave you the full value of the s8 on the card. Hence, you got that back. So for me it was $20 plus $25 for the sim plus the taxes. A bit over $100 total for a new flagship. And that included a gear vr and entertainment package. I sold the gear vr and free phone case on ebay for $60. Not exactly something to cry about.

        • Tony Castro

          Exactly why i cancelled the order, they were giving me different prices altogether, the normal s8 was 0 down + taxes, where i live is 6% so it was around $75 dollars in taxes, plus $25 for activation fee on phone 1, phone 2 was 0 down + $75 taxes + $25 convenience upgrade fee because i ordered it through a human being.(call tmo and ask) for a total of $205 dollars. I didn’t get any extra line for $10 but for $35 after noticing they were going to charge me $45 and I corrected them on the promotion by looking online. Also by enrolling in autopay i would get a $5 discount, which i never trust becasuse they can debit whatever they feel like it and if you are not on top of the game, you are giving tmo free money.

          So the bogo for me was bogus, any person who wants to get it, ask for any hidding fee because they will not tell you and when you hear the total and the monthly bill get ready.

          And is something that i cry about because i work hard for my money to give it away for free when they are not up front with the prices, fees and any other hidden goodies

        • Limeybastard

          Im currently on Simple Choice unlimited with 4 lines, 2 of those lines are free , meaning I only pay taxes on the two additional lines.
          So if I were to get the BOGO note 8 deal, I would have to add a line and pay all these fees, then in a few months cancel the line, Pretty cumbersome?

        • Tony Castro

          I am not sure, you need to ask a tmobile rep.

  • HeatFan786

    Anyone know when T-Mobile’s BOGO expires? I am on the fence between the iPhone 8 and Note 8 to use for a couple of years. I prefer the iPhone 8 on BOGO right now.

    • noh1bvisas

      it’s not even announced, officially, yet.

      • HeatFan786

        I already spoke to 611 and T-Force, but nothing regarding end date. It is official, but goes live tomorrow.

  • niididdy

    Good deal…But what will the upfront cost be? $210 plus taxes or $420 plus taxes?

    • noh1bvisas

      420 +taxes

      • niididdy

        That’s why I think the Samsung Note 7 promotion works for me. I don’t want to pay all that money initially to T-Mobile, though I know I’ll get my money back eventually.

    • superg05

      i payed alot but it might be because i have an s7 thats being financed

      • niididdy

        Probably… If you have an eip on the S7 and trying to trade it in, I can see how you’d end up paying a lot more.

  • Limeybastard

    Quick question, Im on T mobile USA. Should I get a Note 8 t mobile or unlocked version from Samsung website?

    • noh1bvisas

      i initially ordered an unlocked from samsung. i changed that to the tmobile version because of the seamless Digits support (built right into the stock dialer and messaging app). i paid-in-full, so i can get it unlocked for free.

      • Limeybastard

        How about the bloat? I guess my question is, any benefits of choosing the unlocked version compared to T Mobile version from Sammy website?

        • noh1bvisas

          there was very little bloat on my v20. i expect the same on the note 8. i use the visual voicemail, too. i saw there was a separate app on the playstore, but again, i wondered about it being seamless.

        • KelaRavenwood

          Personality I would not be buying a phone on T-mobile right now. If I were a T-mobile customer. The reason for that is in about 3 months phone with 600mhz modems will start being released and you need one of those to take advantage of T-mobile’s newest network.

        • noh1bvisas

          newest network, available only in Wyoming right now. the v30 just came out. it supports the new band.

    • My recommendation, go with the Tmobile version. Digits and video calling built into the stock dialer. My past experience with unlocked phones on Tmobile is they were not as fast on the network as a Tmobile branded one.

      • Limeybastard

        Right, I just placed an order for 2 Note 8s. The unlocked version isnt going to ship until October. I will cancel and order the T MO version. Thanks,.

        • noh1bvisas

          they must be backordered. when i first ordered an unlocked it said it would ship by 9/11.

        • Limeybastard

          I just cancelled and re-ordered the T Mobile version, it doesnt bother me being locked or not.

    • sammy

      You can get the same promo with free camera or memory card etc via TMO as well starting Sept 1st

    • Salih Sedat Şen

      How did you find the BOGO deal for unlocked version. I can`t see anything on Samsung` s website

  • GersonT1000

    I’ve never really noticed about this so I’ll ask here: when you get a new device at a store, do they have to turn it on to do some kind of activation or can you get the phone without unsealing the box?

    • sammy

      You can purchase a phone without opening the box. They will attempt to stick in the new sim. Just kindly ask that they don’t as you will do this at a later point. No issue with that. Being T-Mobile is GSM, there is no “activation” process on the phone, rather simply sticking in the SIM

      • Billy_Boy2019

        You are so correct! I always let those reps know I know how to put the SIM and there’s never a problem!

    • Prode

      Almost every store I have been in wants to take the phone out of the box a min to make sure it is not broken. This is also to lower reselling of the device do to fraud as well.

  • sammy

    **JUST IN** T-Mobile will be bundling in PLUS with all of its TmobileOne plans for free. Once its applied (like the promo from a few months back) you will be able to keep it grandfathered in. This promo start 9/1 and only new lines qualify (not existing)

    • Rafy286

      Where did you see this?

      • sammy

        Its avail. Call in.

        • Rafy286

          Called in and apparently its only available with the #GetoutofRed promo according to the rep i spoke to

    • Limeybastard

      T Mobile couldnt run a promo to saves its life. From the mess of the two line promo billing issues I encountered to the massive delay of their prepaid mastercard when I left ATT 3 or 4 years ago. Never again, thanks.

  • RLB63

    Was considering the note 8.
    Deal killers
    Only curved glass. Seen way too many of that style broken. Cases can’t protect that style screen as well.

    No 600 support. Since the V30 has it.

    • Lorraine Chen

      I’ve actually had the s7 edge for over a year and dropped it many times and I have a Spigen case (has lips at the top and bottom of the phone). Just decided to finally take off the case and inspect it myself since I’ll be trading it in for the $425 credit since I was a note 7 owner, so wanted to make sure it looked good to send in. The screen never cracked and I was pretty sure I’d find many scratches even though I had a case, but to my surprise, it actually looks brand new.

      • flnycus

        s7 still is one of the best phones out there.

    • flnycus

      thought similar. Now back to the s8 just because of the size in a good case with side lips. Stil no details on the v30, note8 too big, apple is a rip off, the x has that annoying notch and only ip67, i came full circle back to the s8. Just have to baby it & enjoy it, because everything is that dreaded glass now.

  • Brandon

    Bogo not available for jump on demand pre-orders

    I took advantage of the BOGO offer this morning at 0445hrs. It was a really smooth process. At 0830hrs I called T-Mobile just to verify that all went thru, while talking to the rep I learned some new things, shout out to ALL who stated that you can cancel the line you have to open to take advantage of the BOGO deal, it’s 100% true. Before I asked, the rep said it he said, “Once you get the MasterCard you can call in to cancel the line” this was at the beginning of our conversation. He proceeded with opening a new line (As of right now I have 7 active lines) and in the reps recap of all the transactions we did I asked, “I can definitely cancel the line once I receive the MasterCard”, his response was, “Absolutely”.

    Also, the 6 to 8 weeks to when you receive the MasterCard starts the day you receive the first phone.

    Lastly, the rep stated to definitely have the funds available in your account on the 13th! I hope this helps someone out ✌

    From samsung`s web site we will be claiming the promotions just for one phone or both phones?
    Any idea?

    T-Mobile shares love with current customers ….. Sometimes only when you ask nicely :-) Many reps want to help. “Ask and you shall receive”

    If I was in the market for a phone, I’d get the damned things unlocked and over to XfinityMobile as soon as I could!

    Oh wait, it’s $200 off at XFinityMobile anyway.

    Anyone know if Costco will be doing anything for T-Mobile?

    Do you need to use a SIM card from the new line up until the BOGO rebate card comes in?
