New MetroPCS deal offers two months of service for free


T-Mobile’s newest deal is for its prepaid MetroPCS brand.

Starting today, new customers coming to MetroPCS can get two months of service for free when they sign up for an unlimited plan. Plan options include the $50 plan with unlimited talk, text, and 4G LTE data, the $60 unlimited plan that adds 10GB of hotspot usage, or the four-line family unlimted plan that costs $100.

This limited time offer requires a port-in of a qualifying number. Also of note is that with this deal, you get your two months of free service in the form of a $100 prepaid MasterCard card after making on-time payments for your first two months of service.

To sweeten the deal, MetroPCS is also offering select phones free to customers who bring their number to its network. The free phone options include the Coolpad Defiant, ZTE Avid 4, LG Aristo 2, Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime, and Moto E4.

    Why do MetroPCShit customers get better deals than T-Mobile!?!

    • John Smith

      I know right!! There is nothing near that nice on T-MO :( Wonder if they let you switch from Tmo??

      • Luis Hotdaddy Vasquez

        Nope… They always exclude numbers on the T-Mobile’s network for these promotions because they say you are technically connected with T-Mobile. Funny because when you call them, they keep saying they are two different companies.

          A future FCC fine on the way

      They’re not really better deals / both entities are balanced out business-wise:
      Metro cheaper but gives less- no Netflix, no freebie Tuesdays, no EIP, slower and less data, lesser phones, less international, whatever else I’m forgetting…
      To the point that no unlimited TMO customer is interested in Metro / no unlimited Metro customer wants/is able to get TMO[without unnecessarily suffering: higher plan payments, extra security deposits, higher EIP payments].

      • Acdc1a

        Slower data? Only if you’re on a congested tower. Otherwise it’s the same. Less data? I guess the soft cap is at 35GB instead of 50, but again, it’s only if you’re on a congested tower. T-Mobile is better suited for people who finance phones and travel overseas.

        • riverhorse

          TMO customers are prioritized first… Or conversely-slowed down last. It can be noticeable.
          You can also finance on Metro, but the program differences are huge/lesser.
          At the end of the day, it’s- you pay a bit less on Metro ergo you receive less than on T-Mobile… I wouldn’t call the deals on Metro better.

        • Acdc1a

          Certainly they are, but unless that tower is congested you won’t notice the difference.

  • Captain Insano

    Metro is killing its own parent company in deals. I’d rather have a prepaid card then bill credits. Whoever came up with bill credits when giving deals…I HATE you!!!

  • SirStephenH

    $50-$60? You might as well get T-Mobile service at that price point.

    • Acdc1a

      $60 for the $80 T-Mobile One Plus plan is essentially what you’re getting. If you don’t travel overseas you’re saving yourself $240 annually.

      • riverhorse

        Now, if you call overseas, do Netflix, factor in freebie Tuesdays, lean towards flagship phones…

        • Acdc1a

          The flagship phones are almost always discounted at Metro and not at T-Mobile for single lines. I have 4 voice lines and 2 unlimited tablet lines at T-Mobile for $145. I couldn’t beat it if I wanted to.

  • Sharti24

    It’s quite simple. If you have multiple family lines tmobile is your best value. If you’re a single person metro does the job

    • Luis Hotdaddy Vasquez

      But Metro is designed for illegal immigrants…

      • riverhorse

        And TMO for the ghetto, going by the music and personnel in the stores and the ads.

    • riverhorse

      I agree Sharti24, overlooking the meager phone selection.
