T-Mobile offering free 50-inch 4K TV with purchase of Samsung flagship smartphone

galaxy_s9_plus_rear_2

Yesterday we told you that T-Mobile had a new deal coming today, and now we know exactly what T-Mo’s new offer is all about.

Starting Friday, November 30, T-Mobile will offer a free Samsung 50-inch 4K UHD Smart TV for free when you buy a flagship Samsung smartphone on an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) and add a new line. New T-Mo customers can get this offer by adding two new voice lines and buying a Samsung flagship phone.

The Samsung phones that are eligible for this offer include the Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy S8, and Galaxy S8 Active.

You’ll need to visit a T-Mobile store to take advantage of this offer, and you’ll get your free Samsung television after you register for the promo online. There are limited quantities of free TVs with this offer, and the televisions are available on a first-to-submit basis, so you’ll want to redeem this offer quickly if you want the free Samsung TV.

Some folks have been frustrated that recent T-Mobile deals have placed a focus on new customers, but this new offer is open to both new and existing subscribers. It does require you to add at least one new line, but that’s not too surprising since many of T-Mo’s recent offers have had the same requirement.

What do you think of this new deal? Will you be taking T-Mobile up on its offer of a free Samsung television?

    No bill credits? You can cancel that new line as soon as you get the TV and sell the phone?

    • Chanki Lee

      looks like it but i think you have to pay the full price of the phone if you cancel.

      • The One

        I think you have to pay the full price of the phone to get the TV anyway. But I would be weary of a cheap TV, as it might be cheaper in performance than you may want.

        • Francisco Peña

          EIP to get the phone, so its across the 24/36mo term.

          I’ll pass. I have 3 lines, 2 being 6GB/$70 (83 w/tax) and 1 free line, so jumping from $83 to $120 on the service plan doesn’t make sense. i can save that $37 difference and buy a 70″ tv instead.

  • J.J.

    New line. Dammit. Still aimed mostly at new customers as most likely current have the amount of lines they want. But i guess that’s how they have been gaining so many new customers which gains revenue for network upgrades so i shouldn’t complain.

  • francob911 .

    What’s in for those customers that are maxed out on lines? I have 12 lines on my SC family plan and cant add more lines

    • The One

      What do you need 12 lines for?

      • Deibid

        A) does it matter?
        B) it’s called a family plan for a reason. More lines = cheaper cost per line.

      • Francisco Peña

        by your thinking, why have sex more than once? You may like it once, but many of us want it more. Same with phone lines, or data usage. you use 4gb, someone else uses 40gb.

        Who are you to question why?

        • Alex Pilaia

          why are you not on Unlimited? lol

        • Francisco Peña

          Because my wife didn’t offer unlimited sex. lol

        • The One

          Lol, that’s a terrible analogy. It’s a simple question. Why would a person need 12 active phone lines. His answer, he only needs one. He clearly just kept adding lines for some promotion.

        • Francisco Peña

          Maybe he actually has a large family, or to help other family members out, has them under his plan. Either way, why should it matter to you.

    • John Smith

      12 lines!!

      • francob911 .

        Yea 12 lines is the max on Simple Choice and 15 is the max on Tmobile one, unless your on a business account

  • DILAW IDDAHLA

    Which TV model is in this offer? You have to be careful because I just Purchased a Samsung TV 50″ from Samsung for $280 (Model NU6900BXZA). Need to know the final price of the phone including any SIM fees is applicable. Because right now, you can get a Smasung Galaxy S9 about $250 cheaper online than from T-Mobile

    • DILAW IDDAHLA

      Tmobile is selling the S9 for $720 and if you read the Terms and Conditions it says this offer is only available at the store and you have to get the SIM Starter Kit and thats another $25. So for me living in MI this means its $720 + $25 + 6% tax which comes out to $789.70. I can get a Galaxy S9 from Swappa now for $570 new. I am sure this offer is on the NU6900BXZA which sells on Samsung.com for $280 for the 50″ with PPE. If the TV comes out with tax to $296.8 + $570 for the new galaxy S9 (no tax on swappa) which comes out to $866.80. Don’t forget that you have to pay the new line fee which is $10 in my case. I am not sure how many months you have to keep the line to get this offer to go through, but if best case is 1 month ($10+ taxes which comes out to $14.50) then I am paying $789.70+14.50 = $804.20 for a phone and TV that would cost me $866.8. I will save $62.60. Not worth it if you ask me and thats especially if you don’t need the phone and thinking about turning around and selling it

    • pda96

      It’s probably some out of production model from 2016.

      • DILAW IDDAHLA

        They don’t have any 2016 nor 2017 models left. Its got to be a 2018 because the 2019 are coming out soon. Plus the 2018 model I am speaking of even at $280 is still a good price for Samsung to sell it at.

    • mikeZo6

      yea 43′ (Model NU6900BXZA is $280 from Samsung 50′ IS $329

      • DILAW IDDAHLA

        No if you use a PPE account (if your company qualified for this type of discount) the 50″ is $280. I just got it today for that much.

        • mikeZo6

          nice price on PPE then !

  • John Smith

    I don’t need a F%$# new line. Basically it’s like being on a contract again. No deal for me!! I mean: buy the phone $720 add a line another $20 a month. You can buy the TV cheaper than $720 as posters below have indicated below and I have seen on sale for similar prices.

  • pda96

    No deal. The free TV has to be “guaranteed”!! If people jump on this promo and they don’t end up getting their TVs, they’d be mighty pissed.

    • Alex Pilaia

      Actually a really good point..

  • Francisco Peña

    This will get every cheap bastard on the planet to come to a TMo store fighting for a TV that they could have gotten last week for less and for less time paying.

    • BrianC

      True

    • ibmps2it

      This is one time I’m glad not to be a T-Mo store rep at Xmas time.

  • Robert Roll

    i think T-Mobile needs to offer deals for existing customers *WITHOUT* having to add a new line. but limit it to how many offers they can take advantage of. i.e. free phone great cant get anther one for at least 24 or 36 months.. but its paid off over the course of 24 or 36 months via bill credits.

    • Alex Pilaia

      YES. Couldn’t have said it better myself. I am sitting here with a brand new OnePlus 6, and have NO DESIRE to upgrade to anything Samsung… How about promotions like “Pay your bill IN FULL and ON TIME for 1 full year?” or “Dont Use more than 30GB of data in a 6 month period”. or stuff like that. Something customers need to work towards to get prizes and deals. Come on Tmo. make it happen!!

      • Sharti24

        Thats too un-carrier for tmobile to ever do lol

      • Phil

        Pay bill in full on time auto-pay not required:
        12 month – 50.00 yearly bill credit
        24 month – 75.00 yearly bill credit
        36 month – 100.00 yearly bill credit.

        After 3 years you are considered loyal customer perks kick in such as 10% monthly discount with 25% to 50% off new device purchase no trade needed & yearly bill credit remains in tact @ 100.00.
        Now if late payment – not pay in full etc comes into play ,Loyal status would be revoked start from scratch.

        If such setup was in place , I would be enjoying loyalty perks not feeling neglected after 4.5 years of t-mobile service

    • francob911 .

      Hey T-Mobile theres people that cant add anymore lines on their account , what about us?? I have 12 lines on my SC Family plan and 12 is the max!!

  • Scott LaRue

    John Legere on his twitter feed tells a poster who is single and only needs one line, to just get a new line, they make great gifts! Plus you get a Free TV!

    Adding a second line is another $50 a month X 24 months = $1200.
    Plus buy a high end Samsung device at full price. $720.. roughly, never mind the SIM Card and all the other fees…

    Possibly get a new Samsung TV not worth more than $300 dollars.

    Not sure where T-Mobile got their definition of FREE but it ain’t in any dictionary I know.

    • Valerie Edwards

      LOLOLOL! RIGHT?

  • Send Obama to Mars

    There will be plenty of unsold Black Friday TV’s, marked down, at the after-Xmas sales.

  • Send Obama to Mars

    It would really be ‘Uncarrier’ if T-Mobile simply gave a Christmas gift with no strings attached, to existing subscribers.
    For example, add a one-time 50 GB of data (non-expiring) to all Simple Choice customers.

    • ibmps2it

      Yes, and if there really was a Santa, Microsoft and Apple would also issue Xmas cash rebates out of their giant hoard of corporate cash.
      If they were really ‘Uncarrier’, T-Mo would release Android and security updates for my poor S5. I know there’s additional updates out there, because Verizon issued them to its S5’s.

      • Matt Macaluso

        They are just another carrier again.

      • Bklynman

        Tmo could be something simple,with time limited on it,like maybe a screen saver
        put on your choice of device,be it tablet or phone,or case for it,or even portable battery charger,I seen them go for low as $5.00 for 2600 amp ones. Maybe have like a week to get it,they give out hats,coffee cups for Tmo Tues.
        So they could do this too.

  • AA-Ron

    Remember, T-Mobile is in the business of making money and adding lines. What incentive do they have to give the best deals to current customers. We do get some things, and TMO Tuesday. We get great service, great perks, worldwide coverage, for a great price. Be thankful.

  • David Kalasz

    The issue I have is the trade in a phone and add a line…wtf do i do with a line I no longer have a phone for

    • SirStephenH

      They expect people to bring in users from other carriers. In this respect the deal is essentially for new customers.

  • Crucifixion Cruxi

    Add a line here . Add a line there. There are ways around it though. I have two lines. Get rid of my line take the new line

    • dcmanryan

      It doesn’t work that way. Most of the deals won’t work if you cancel a line before your rebate, TV or whatever. If you have a free line kiss it goodbye because it’ll go first.

      • SirStephenH

        Yep. You usually can’t have cancelled a line within a month or so and have to keep the new line for a year or two. This isn’t T-Mobile’s first rodeo.

  • Phil

    I will just keep one line & save the money that would be used on 2nd line for a better TV.
    Sounds like crazy idea but it just might work lol

  • Alot of people disagree with the stipulation that you have to add a line to get this deal.

    What would be your solution? In lieu of adding a line.

    • Zero Star

      None. Current customers already enjoy grandfathered plans. 3 lines for $90/month isn’t bad at all, and a “free” TV at the tune of an extra $60/month indefinitely is absurd.

  • Valerie Edwards

    NO SH1T……WE ALREADY HAVE 4 LINES. WE USE ONE FOR SYNC, MINE, HUBBY’S, AND AN EXTRA, AND I’VE BEEN WITH T~MOBILE FOR 13YRS, IM ALMOST TO THE POINT OF LEAVING THEM BC I’M SO TIRED OF THE REDUNDANT BS I KEEP PUTTING UP WITH… WHEN THERE’S AN ISSUE, IT’S ALWAYS SOMETHING THAT IVE HAD AN ISSUE WITH THEM BEFORE….NOT TO MENTION THEY OWE ME A $400 RESTOCKING FEE, THAT I HAVE ESSENTIALLY GIVEN UP ON….
