Following Verizon and AT&T, today T-Mobile has finally revealed its introductory offers for the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra. The trio is due to go up for pre-order in the States on February 21.
First off, the magenta carrier is giving you up to $500 back with a qualifying trade-in. You get the full amount for devices such as Apple's latest (down to the iPhone X), a Samsung flagship (S9 or newer), a Google Pixel 3/3 XL or 4/4XL, or a OnePlus 7 Pro, 7T, 7T Pro 5G McLaren.
You only get $300 for older devices (or Google's mid-rangers), and the trade-in value drops to $200 for more ancient handsets. The full list is available at the Via link below.
Next up, you get up to $1,000 off the second Galaxy S20 series phone when you buy two. As usual in these cases, the 'free' phone will be the cheaper one, and you have to grab two handsets on installments and add a new line of service. New customers have to add two lines. The $1,000 is applied in the form of bill credits. This part of the deal is also available for the Galaxy Note10 and Note10+, by the way.
Finally, Samsung is offering you up to $200 credit for its online store when you pre-order an S20 at T-Mobile. You get $100 if you choose the entry-level S20, $150 if you go with the S20+, and $200 if you pick the S20 Ultra.
The new phones will be available in T-Mobile stores on March 6. Just as a reminder, the S20 costs $999, the S20+ is $1,199, and the S20 Ultra goes for $1,399.
The phone is free. The SERVICE is activation and the line. For me that would be $35 then $10/month. Total of $275 for excellent service over two years (plus tax). Net value for the cheapest model = $725. Nobody is twisting your arm.
Should I trade my note 9 for s20+?
This offers didn't require add a new line, only the trade-in.
