T-Mobile to offer rate plan discount and half-off Samsung smartphones to military customers


T-Mobile’s latest initiative is all about the military.

Starting April 22, T-Mobile One Military will be available to military and their families. This includes active duty military, Reserve, National Guard, veterans, and Gold Star families, as well as small businesses owned by military members, up to 12 voice lines.

T-Mobile One Military offers 20 percent off the first line of service and up to half off additional lines. That means that the first line is $55 per month, the second line is $25, and lines three through six are $10 per line. These prices include autopay. If you don’t enroll in autopay, prices will increase by $5 per line.

The T-Mobile One Military plan includes the same benefits as the standard T-Mobile One plan, including Simple Global, Mobile Without Borders, Netflix On Us, and T-Mobile Tuesdays.

In addition to this discounted rate plan,┬áT-Mobile One Military customers┬ácan get half off a new Samsung Galaxy S9, S9+, or S8 Active. You’ll just need to buy a new phone on EIP by May 31. The discount will be applied via 24 monthly bill credits and is available for up to three phones per account.

T-Mo’s new initiative is helping the military in other ways, too:

  • Investing more than half a billion dollars in 2018 to expand LTE capacity and coverage around military bases and communities as well as laying the foundation for 5G coverage in these areas with 5G-ready infrastructure.
  • Pledging to hire 10,000 veterans and military spouses in the next five years.
  • Giving funding and support to the FourBlock Career Readiness Program, expanding it to 20 total cities and launching online this fall. The FourBlock Career Readiness Program aims to help military transition to civilian careers.
