T-Mobile Offering New Year’s Discount on a New Phone this Weekend


It’s a new year and T-Mobile thinks it’s time for you to pick up a new phone. If you didn’t get the smartphone you were so desiring as a gift this holiday season, you can treat yourself thanks to the reduced rates TMo is offering on some of their most popular Android smartphones. From January 6th through January 8th, devices such as the HTC Amaze 4G and Samsung Galaxy S II will be available for $49.99 or less after a mail-in rebate. The initial fee acts as a down payment with an additional monthly charge to cover the balance. Now that we know T-Mobile won’t be going anywhere as part of a now-defunct buyout deal with AT&T, customers can feel a bit easier about committing a couple of years to the carrier. Do any of these deals sound tempting enough or will you be waiting to see what new devices are unveiled at CES before committing to your next smartphone?

T-Mobile Rings in 2012 with the “New Year, New Phone Sale”

On Jan. 6–8, all T-Mobile smartphones and select mobile broadband devices are available for as little as $0–$49.99 net down

BELLEVUE, Wash. — Jan. 3, 2012 — Following last year’s successful holiday promotions such as “Magenta Saturday” and the “4G Super Sale,” T-Mobile USA, Inc. will help value seekers kick off the new year with the “New Year, New Phone Sale.” For one weekend only, Friday, Jan. 6 through Sunday, Jan. 8, T-Mobile is giving customers the chance to purchase top devices, such as the HTC Amaze™ 4G, Samsung Galaxy S™ II or the T-Mobile® Springboard™tablet, for $49.99 or less net down payment — after a mail-in rebate card — when customers sign up for a new two-year agreement on any qualifying T-Mobile Unlimited Value™ plan.1

“Some people join a gym as a New Year’s resolution while others vow to stay in better touch with friends and loved ones, and T-Mobile wants to help with that resolution,” said John Cleland, Senior Vice President of Marketing, T-Mobile USA. “For consumers who didn’t get the latest mobile phone for the holidays, T-Mobile is giving them a chance to welcome in the new year with the hottest new devices at an affordable price and help them stay better connected in 2012.”

New customers will be eligible for this deal when they sign up for a two-year agreement on any qualifying Unlimited Value plan2. Existing customers also can take advantage of this great sale if they are eligible for an upgrade, meaning they have been on their current service contracts for 18 months or more.

The “New Year, New Phone Sale” will be available the weekend of Jan.6–8 at participating T-Mobile retail stores nationwide.

  1. Waiting on the T-Mobile Galaxy Nexus…

  2. So you are still paying $450 for a Samasung Galaxy S II…just $50 down payment with 20 months x $20 payments.

    T-Mobile should just make that “deal” available all the time for their Value plans.I’ll keep my old unlimited data plan and wait on a T-Mobile Galaxy Nexus or the Galaxy S III.January 10th to the 13th (next week) is CES too, so all the new phones should be announced then…Galaxy S III maybe?

  3. Me too

  4. Going to pass, not a fan of these “Value Plan” sales.

  5. Shoot why when you can get it at Walmart for $215.00 for a new line new contract or upgrade.

  6. why buy last year’s leftovers?

  7. So I just got a new Galaxy S2 on a value plan.  I called and they will not honor the rebate.  I have to cancel my contract – I’m still in my time to do so – and then start a new one to get the special pricing.  What a scam!

  8. Yuck…..mail in rebates.
