T-Mobile Will Offer New Deals on iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and iPhone X Beginning January 12

T-Mobile, the self-proclaimed “Un-carrier”, loves to offer deals on smartphones, and it is starting 2018 off with a pretty substantial one if you plan on switching over to the Magenta carrier.

Announced today, T-Mobile is offering a wide-ranging Buy One, Get One (BOGO) deal for just about any phone you might want to buy, including the iPhone 7 lineup, the iPhone 8 series, and, for the first time, the iPhone X is included in the offerings, too. And, as expected, a wide range of Android-based devices are also on offer.

The new BOGO deal will launch on Friday, January 12. When it goes live, you will need to port in at least one phone number from another carrier, and you will also need to trade in at least one device. Here are the eligible devices for consideration:

  • iPhone: 7, 7 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 6, 6 Plus, SE, or 5s.
  • LG: V20, G6, or G5.
  • Samsung: Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, S7 Active, S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, S6 Active, S5, S4, Note5, or Note 4.

Once you port the number over, and trade in one of those devices, you will also need to buy both of your new phones under T-Mobile’s umbrella with an equipment installment plan (EIP), too. Once you cover those required bases, you will get a rebate sent to you from T-Mobile, which will cover the cost of the lower-priced device of the two new handsets you picked up.

The free phone you can choose from are these:

  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 8 (64GB)

As well as a variety of different Android phones.

Or, if you don’t mind spending a little money on a high-end, flagship smartphone, you can buy the iPhone 7 Plus (128GB or 256GB0, the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus (256GB), or the iPhone X and then get a second one of those devices for $700 off.

The promotion starts Friday, January 12, but T-Mobile doesn’t confirm when it will be over, so you might want to act quickly.

Our Take

As is par for the course, these types of BOGO deals require jumping through a variety of hoops. However, it’s good to see that the iPhone X is already starting to find its way to some deals like this. You might not be able to get a free one just yet, but it’s hard to argue that a $700 discount isn’t pretty steep and worthwhile.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this new deal when it goes live?
