T-Mobile may launch LG V30 deal that includes $500 off second V30 or free G6, V20


Tomorrow’s the day that the LG V30 officially launches at T-Mobile, and there may be a special deal for customers that purchase one.

Sources have told TmoNews that starting tomorrow, October 13th, T-Mobile will offer $500 off a second LG V30 or a free LG G6 or V20 with the purchase of a V30. LG has prematurely confirmed these deals on its T-Mobile LG V30 page.


Meanwhile, Reddit user Witzelsucht_Guy appears to have gotten more details on this deal from @TMobileHelp on Twitter. The rep says that you’ll need to be on T-Mobile One or Simple Choice unlimited to get this deal and that you’ll need to add a line, too. Also of note is that the $500 discount would apparently come in the form of a prepaid MasterCard card.

We’ll have to wait for T-Mobile to announce this deal before we get all of the official deals, but much of what we’ve heard so far lines up with other recent T-Mobile promos.

Thanks, sources!

    Of course people with grandfathered plans get the shaft. Take this L, Tmobile

    • DirgeExtinction

      Don’t deals like these on most carriers do things similarly?

      • Krystalmyth

        No. Verizon doesn’t have contracts anymore for consumer lines, so if you’re grandfathered you can still get on these deals, that said having to change your plan is what fucks you. But TBH I’d never change my plan or add lines to make a deal on temporary hardware. I’ve had my unlimited since 2009. Guess how many phones Ive gone through. Not worth it.

        • SirStephenH

          They don’t have contracts for the plans but they have EIP, exactly like T-Mobile.

        • Mike

          Also if you make one false move Verizon and AT&T will move you from your grandfathered plan to a new plan automatically. I had a buddy using hotspot hacks and tricks and Verizon sent him a text that they were changing his plan. AT&T did the same to my brother.

    • Ty Christensen

      Yep, every time.

    • SirStephenH

      This supposedly includes Simple Choice unlimited. So no, all the grandfathered plans don’t get the shaft.

  • Jorge Trigueros

    My wife is so cheap she doesn’t want to change our plan for a phone deal. $30 more a month with 4 lines but we get unlimited high speed data.

    • Krystalmyth

      Um, she’s the boss I guess? If you can legitimately add to that from your own money what say does she have in it? Is she the only breadwinner? In that case suck it up. But if you both work then you’re entitled to getting what you want with your money.

    • stasek

      Do it!!!!! It’s well worth it! I had no idea how crippled my experience was until I switched. Used to have to do with 6GB of high speed data and I’ll easily do 15GB just doing normal day to day stuff.

      • dcmanryan

        You and me must do different everyday stuff. I’m on unlimited and can’t use more than 3gb unless I try really hard. It ticks me off that me and my wife are always barely over the 2gb kickback limit per month. My two kids some how manage 15-20gb per month though.

  • Mr.Bean ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    It annoys me that it requires to add a line to get the deal.

  • Francisco Peña

    If you wait a few months, the price of the V30 will come down so much, that the full price to get $500 off will be moot. you would be able to get both for bout the same price and still use JOD

    • SirStephenH

      I’m thinking February personally.

      • John Doe

        The LG G6 dropped in price just a month after release give it til december right before the holidays and you will see the price drop all those units they couldn’t sell during black friday and they have to sell them before their quarterly earnings report.

      • Bklynman

        Mmmm,hoping by then some phone maker will bring out mid-range phone with 3 gigs of rams. ZTE?

    • Bay_Ranger

      Black Friday week? Maybe…

  • noksucow

    it’s not that great a deal if you consider they’re doing BOGO on the Note 8.

  • SirStephenH

    What’s the point if you have to add a new line?

    • John Doe

      They make money for a couple of months off of a useless line and they get to inflate their numbers…what’s not to like? It is perfect for the “uncarrier” /s

  • tranceformer978

    I was excited until I saw the requirement of adding a line. Wished it was like the G6 BOGO offer.

  • Mike

    This is a T-Mobile promo so why wouldn’t they require a line to be added. If this was a LG promo then it would be different.

    • John Doe

      Of course, How will T-Mobile inflate their subscriber growth then? forget the current customers they get no promos, they get nothing.

      Also, Samsung had a buy one get one offer on the S8 (T-Mobile had their own at the time as well) and that also required you to add a line at T-Mobile so it seems like any deal even from OEMs that involves T-Mobile has that requirement.

      • Mike

        So u expect a free phone . I don’t see no stores giving me a buy one get one free deal on a TV, Game system, or computer. Your savings are in your cell phone plan. I don’t see Apple or any carrier offering the buy one get one free on the iPhone 8.

        • John Doe

          I expect a promo without ridiculous fine prints like get a new line WTF kind of promo is that? It is okay if you do it once but every single time. And yes LG had its own bogo on the G6 that did not require a add a line and Samsung had the same as well. Also T-mobile had bogo promos without add a line before…with the iPhone so if you set a precedent you deserve to get complaints T-mobile is becoming more and more like Verizon and AT&T with their fine print and prices.

          T-Mobile gets a cut from the phones they sell like any other retailer like best buy offers their own deals on phones the only deals I see with T-Mobile is add a line get a free phone that is not a deal for you that is a deal for another person.

        • Mike

          I don’t see other carriers offering the phone free without a new line. If Tmobile, Verizon, ATT, and Sprint is running the promo they will require a new line. The carriers have to get something out the deal. If LG and Samsung is running a promo then of course a line might not be required since the promo is being ran by the manufacturer. So stop whining like a baby.

        • John Doe

          I thought T-Mobile is the Uncarrier.

          Stop bending over and taking it from carriers. I haven’t bought a phone from T-Mobile in the past 4 years and the more they do this the less likely I will buy a phone from especially when other retailers offer better promos than they do.

  • Bay_Ranger

    New line? If I needed a new line I would have already added it. This is no deal at all.

  • CJNewYork

    Why not just offer 200 off the phone like they did with the V20? With the free tablet and headset this would have really been a killer deal.
