Didn’t want to bear the crowds at T-Mobile last weekend for some Black Friday savings on a new smartphone? Well the carrier is giving shoppers another chance to save by discounting all Samsung Galaxy 4G devices under its new holiday promotion.
Like most sales, this too has a clause, as customers can only get the marked down handset with the purchase of a qualifying Unlimited Value plan or an Unlimited Nationwide 4G data subscription. Available until Dec. 20, T-Mobile’s “Samsung Holiday Sale” is open to new and existing customers with eligible upgrades, and is only offered at the carrier’s retail locations.
With the promotion covering all high-speed Sammy smartphones, consumers can pick up the popular Galaxy S III for $100. That is of course after a $50 mail-in-rebate, meaning they will have to pay $150 for the handset at the time of purchase. The second-generation Galaxy S Note will also get a price cut, with T-Mobile selling the phablet for $300 with a $100 mail-in-rebate card. Both devices will require a monthly $20 Equipment Installment Plan fee.
Other discounted phones include the Blaze 4G, which will be free after a $50 mail-in-rebate, and last year’s Galaxy S, which will also cost nothing after a$100 mail-in-rebate. Shoppers can also snag the Relay 4G for half off after paying $100 and receiving a $50 mail-in-rebate, while those looking for a tablet with a wireless connection can get the Galaxy Tab 10.1 for cheap at $100, after a $100 mail-in-rebate.
With the nation’s two largest wireless carriers no longer offering unlimited data plans, this is likely a strategic move on T-Mobile’s part to pick up disgruntled customers, not to mention shift its focus to offering mostly Value Plans. To learn more about the sale visit the company’s deal site.
