T-Mobile Galaxy Note 8 BOGO deal is ending October 17th

galaxynote8greytmo2

When T-Mobile launched its Galaxy Note 8 BOGO deal at the start of September, it said that the offer would be available for a limited time. Now we know exactly when it’ll come to an end.

T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy BOGO deal will end tomorrow, October 17th. T-Mo has revealed this info in a support page on its website that details on customers can take advantage of its current rebate offers.

With this deal, you can buy a new Galaxy S8, S8+, or Note 8 and get a second S8, S8+, or Note 8 free after rebate. To qualify, you’ll need to purchase both phones on EIP, be on a T-Mobile One or Simple Choice Unlimited plan, and activate at least one new line of service.

There’s not a lot of time left to take advantage of this deal, so if you’ve been on the fence about it, you’ll need to act soon.

Thanks, Christian!

    Oh, that bad John Legere, Tmo becoming so uncarrierish…and it’s getting worse with the upcoming Sprint deal and Trump as president.
    There, that should cover everything the soon to arrive Trolls will scream about.

      Most aren’t trolls and make a lot of sense. Unless you absolutely use and need the stylus it’s not worth the cost of entry over an S8+. My opinion, I know, but many agree. Not to mention the down payment for both phones alone will buy you a nice phone outright. I never buy a phone on device payment but I know many do.

    I just wish there was a way to take advantage of this offer without having to add more lines. Does anyone know of any loopholes?

      I just did it tonight so I don’t know how it’s all going to work out but here’s the “loophole”.

      On an old (grandfathered) family plan, customer service can do a “workaround” (their words; dunno if they can do it successfully in-store) to not force you to convert ALL your lines to the “One” plan or “Simple Choice Unlimited”. They WILL have to convert (or add-on unlimited data) one of your lines which will likely cost you $45 more per month for one of your existing lines. The new line can be canceled after you pay off the Note8 associated with that new line (presumably using the $930 rebate card). You can then cancel the $45/month unlimited “add on” attached to your existing line as well. To be safe, it’s probably best to not cancel the new line until you get the rebate card in hand.

      Assuming you get the rebate card in 2 months, you’ll have to pay around $220 ($45 + $45 for unlimited data for 2 lines plus $20 service for the new line times 2 months) in wireless service fees (voice, text & data) to get that $930 phone free and clear.

      I had nearly $600 ($210 for each phone plus some other stuff) in down payments (bringing the balance of both phones down to $720 each) for both new phones and that new line of service.

        Thank you for the explanation! I’m going to try calling them right now!

        I’m looking to get the LG V20 BOGO. I’m ok with the temporary new line that I cancel after I get the rebate but they say the new line must be on the new V20. How can they enforce that if I can just swap the Sim cards around?

    Phone is too big and feels awkward in hand.
    When watching videos you’ll have black bars on each side, unless you zoom in which degrades the picture.
    Defeats the purpose of having a super big screen phone. The 18:9 ratio on this phone is not good.

    • Running two apps, side by side in landscape mode is one way this long tall screen pays off in ways others can’t.

      Then clearly it’s isn’t phone for you, however, it feels great in my hand. Most movies nowadays are shot in a ratio similar to 18:9, so with 16:9 phones you still have the black bars. They’re just on the top & bottom instead.

      Look at all the latest flagships by Samsung, LG, Apple, & Huawei. The industry is clearly moving in this direction, so if you don’t like it, tough, man.

        While i agree about it being personal preference so far as feel goes… most movies are NOT shot in similar ratio to 18:9 and finding converted movies is not the easiest task either. Not sure where you got that from. 90% of retail movies/shows are converted to 16:9

        • g2a5b0e

          The two most common aspect ratio for movies are 1.85:1 and 2.39:1, both of which are wider than 16:9, but don’t match up to 18:9 either. Like I said, there are going to be bars either way.

        • chunk

          Those are the common ratios movies are filmed in. You dont see movies at home as theyre showned in theaters unless youre buying special edition BR discs which include those formats. Which your mobiles cant play unless youre claiming you hook up your ps4 to your cell phone. Most films are converted for streaming, and digital downloads to 16:9. Not sure what part of that is giving you trouble, chief. 99% of the content on netflix, hulu, and prime is converted to 16:9 for streaming. Just about all dvds ever made were converted to 16:9. Point is, it is A LOT easier to find 16:9 content right now than it is 2:1. And unless tv’s change any time soon, that wont change.

        • Haze1nut

          Thats what theyre filmed in. But all retail is converted to 16:9. Some discs include original formats because home theater projectors have started gaining traction, but you still get the standard 16:9 conversion when buying a movie. All streaming services do 16:9 format. There are no bars on phones with 16:9 screens when streaming movies from netflix, etc.

    • Philip

      Any ratio where you dont see any bars is get a projector. Of course anything that is off shoot will be in the ceiling or on the ground. I have a 120″ painted wall. Combo with my 7.1 Atmos and 12″ sub, my home theater rocks. :-)

    They actually raised the prices on the Note 8 after ending the Bogo deal. The phone used to be $200 down and not it’s $230. That’s crazy.

    • Andrew Singleton

      It was always $230.

      • Gina Selim

        The phone did go up by 20 bucks though… everywhere. It was 930 during bogo and now its 950

        • Andrew Singleton

          true.

    • chunk

      It was always $230. With the BOGO you had to pay $460 plus the taxes on both phones.
