T-Mobile is really pushing its promotions this tax season. The third largest US carrier is offering a new limited-time promotion which can be combined with T-Mobile’s already ongoing “Third line free” deal. Any new or existing customers that port their phone numbers to T-Mobile and trade in an eligible device will be able to get a free iPhone 7 or 7 Plus (valued at up to $650) via mail-in rebate on a prepaid MasterCard.
The promotion starts today, so you can walk into any (participating) T-Mobile store with any of the following devices eligible for trade-in: All memory variants and colors of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus, as well as all memory variants and colors of the Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, or Galaxy S7 Active.
You would be reimbursed for your purchase via a prepaid MasterCard. You’ll have to purchase the device on a financial plan as normal. Allow for 8 weeks to receive the prepaid card in the mail, which can then be used to either pay off your new iPhone 7 or use it to pay bills or buy groceries.
