Next Tuesday is Halloween, and T-Mobile has some treats planned for its customers on the final T-Mobile Tuesday of October.

For the October 31st edition of T-Mobile Tuesdays, T-Mo customers can get a $2 Baskin-Robbins promo card. T-Mobile subscribers can also score a buy one, get one $0.99 sundae deal at Baskin-Robbins.

Also coming next week is a free Halloween movie rental from Vudu, 10 free 4×6 photo prints from Walgreens and 20 percent off hotels with HotelStorm.

When it comes to prizes, it looks like T-Mobile is doing things a little differently next week. Rather than spinning a wheel for a chance at winning a prize, T-Mobile wants you to tweet your Halloween costume pictures to @TMobile with the hashtags #Thankenstein and #Contest. T-Mobile will select a winner on October 31st and gift them with a Spooky London Trip.

The Spooky London Trip includes a seven-day, six-night trip for two to London and two admissions to the London Bridge Experience, London Tombs, and Jack the Ripper Tour. Also included is roundtrip airfare for two, seven nights in a hotel, $700 for meals, and a check for $2,755 to cover taxes or other expenses.

    Oh how I long for the day when T-Mobile Tuesday’s is not a headline here. Don’t get me wrong, I have benefited from TMT, but do we really need to get news stories about it?

    • SurvivingSunnyvale

      Even today, many people still don’t know about it.

      Back when they had the free Slurpee at 7-Eleven, the manager of the store I went into said many people were coming in for it but didn’t know how to make the app work. The manager himself was a T-Mobile customer and had no idea that the app was different from the regular T-Mobile app.

      It turns out, the people coming in the store who had the app, had no idea how to activate it.

      What may be old news to you, isn’t for others.

      • Dummy Up Meathead

        Fair enough. I guess I’m questioning the target audience this site caters to. Good point though.

        • millenialkid

          I’ve come to the conclusion that this website serves a few goals. First, it sells phones which T-Mobile likely pays a commission on. But the comments also provide a way for T-Mobile employees to solicit and obtain feedback without having to pay a third-party survey company.

          The challenge of course, is that the feedback can be slanted from a pro-tmobile viewpoint and perspective. However, and because it’s a free and public website, T-Mobile could conceivably (and legally) be allowed to re-publish comments; use the comments as business justification for changes to services/products; refinement of how an “unlimited” plan/program should “work”, all this usually results in marketing budgets for new press releases, marketing campaigns, changes to sales compensation programs, or even inclusion in on-stage presentation events, without T-Mobile needing to reimburse.

      • millenialkid

        Yeah, because I often look for deals, the 7-11 app is great; and it’s similar to Starbucks Stars loyalty program.

        When it comes to coffee and fountain drinks, icee, the product itself costs between 1 or 2¢ per ounce of finished drink. There are situations, where the cost of the cup actually costs more than the finished product. With 7 purchases-then-one-free, it’s overall, a better overall deal than Starbucks if 7-11 has the right blend of coffee hot.

        But just as you noted- I also saw they had trouble with the app, so I emailed 7-11 about 3 or 4 months ago asking to enter in a phone number on the credit card terminal. That request was also thoughtfully considered. The store and location in my area just rolled it out; it’s likely being tested and may go nationwide soon…

      I like to know what’s coming up so that I can not even bother looking at the app if I don’t care about that week’s offerings. However, if there’s a VUDU code, I’m all over it.

    • millenialkid

      Because T-Mobile never “thanked” me for the idea (a month’s worth of service would have been nice), I instead sent the exact letter to Comcast, and they launched XFinity Mobile service. It’s great to have excellent ideas and more importantly, to share them with other companies; sometimes in different industries.

      Tthe best way to be “thanked” is with a lot of extra cash at the end of the month; not some cheap “Groupon” or “Retail Me Not” app knock-off; and it’s unfortunate that DJ Khaled sold out.

      When I wrote John Legere about creating T-Mobile “Thursdays”, I imagine marketing thought free products it wouldn’t have gotten enough attention in the news cycle at the end of the week. These things are generally called a “Cooperative Marketing” campaign. In the past, T-Mobile had trouble being seen as a “nationwide” company so by associating with national brands like Vudu, Lyft, Shell Oil, customers may begin to believe T-Mobile to be a quality nationwide company.

      For the marketing to work, Tuesday was likely chosen so it can be advertised on twitter over the course of a week. I also suggested T-Mobile give free stock in the company when it was started. So when it comes to Freebie Friday… Err.. T-Mobile Tuesday, look at it as a “loss-leader” advertising campaign designed to curb churn. In order for it to also succeed also in “winning back” customers that T-mobile looses, it also needs to be *marketed* with a PR release.

      Because T-Mobile never “thanked” me for the idea (a month’s worth of service would have been nice), I instead sent the exact letter to Comcast, and they launched XFinity Mobile service. It’s great to have excellent ideas and more importantly, to share them with other companies; sometimes in different industries.

      We were paying $220/month with T-Mobile, now with XFinity we get better Verizon coverage, WiFi access that doesn’t slow down the home internet, (like T-Mobile Microcell did with DSL service… I can’t believe T-Mobile wanted to send the account account to collections over a microcell return fee… And also they invoiced for an entire additional month too..!) XFinity’s rate rate can’t be beat- $40/month unlimited. We saving money every day, and the best way to be “thanked” is with a lot of extra cash at the end of the month; not some cheap “Groupon” or “Retail Me Not” app knock-off; and it’s unfortunate that DJ Khaled sold out.

      • Dummy Up Meathead

        Yawn.

        Oh, it’s loses. Nobody “looses” things.

        • millenialkid

          Well, I’m just saying– enjoy your pre-selected “trinkets and trash.” (That’s actually a marketing term).

          Still, and most people I know would prefer to save money and buy something they’d like or enjoy, rather than an award from whatever-company-is-desparate-to-promote-a-freebie.

          When I wrote that letter, I also included Domino’s pizza as a company. The problem of course, was Domino’s was over-booked, and very very few T-Mobile customers left the employees a tip. Must be the demographics. In any situation, that’s why Dominos franchisees and owners voted to drop the TMobile promotion.

    why ice cream ? it is getting cold, we need more coffee

    • cehiatt87

      I wonder if we can use our Baskin gift card at Dunkin. I know with regular giftcards they can be accepted at both businesses.

  • Phil

    Free pizza would be nice

  • SirStephenH

    I just want to know whether the VUDU rental is the pick a rental from a list of crappy movies or the normal $5.50 credit. I’m thinking the former.

    • Deadeye37

      In the past it has been the $5.50 credit even though they say a themed rental (Valentines Day, I believe).

  • skywalkr2

    I haven’t installed TMO Tuesdays since I factory reset… and I don’t miss it.

  • SurvivingSunnyvale

    Well, the Baskin Robbins $2 codes turned out to be unscannable and the store staff just shrugged.
    Good scam to draw people in.
