T-Mobile’s Magenta Deal Days Offers Galaxy S3 Among Others for No Money Down (Sorta) – Starts Sept 21st


Starting Sept 21st all the way through the 30th, T-Mobile is throwing an interesting promotion for new and existing customers on their network. They’re calling it their “Magenta Deal Days” and they’re offering up some of the hottest smartphones currently available for free — but there’s a catch. Customers wont have to put any money down on a new smartphone (choose the Galaxy S3, or hand in your Android-card), instead opting for monthly installment payments around $15-$20, on top of their monthly bill. To help break it down for ya, here’s a handy chart:

Okay, so you will have to put some money down but after the mail-in rebate, it’ll bring that initial payment down to zero. Kinda zero down, kinda not. The promo is good for anyone buying a T-Mobile phone new (or with an upgrade), along with T-Mo’s truly Unlimited Value plan. But that’s the last caveat, we promise. Full press release below.

  1. Makes possibly leaving AT&T or for like me leaving VZW easier as unlimited with no strings & a good phone for $150 basically is not a bad idea. Magenta’s service isnt the greatest but thier CS is decent & even with all the baked in stipulations, This is enticing Lol

    1. T-Mobile’s website is the worst that I have ever have to deal with. It takes forever to execute any command. That’s just unacceptable…Their prices are kind of good and but their service is not that great.

      1. Their website is quite slow for me as well… somewhat annoying.

  2. they need to change the name of the promo to ‘rebates for the suckers”

  3. Or you can buy, for example, a GSIII at Target on a 2 year contract for $169 and then switch over to a value plan the next day and pay a $200 migration fee. Total cost $169 + $200 = $369 for the phone on a value plan. Planning on doing this next month…

    1. jrem which value plan could you switch over to? and on the target website it says 200$ for the GSIII

      1. I was in my local Target store last week though and they had it for $169 not sure why it would be different online, maybe its no longer for that price at my local store too. Switching over a line to any of the value plans incurs a migration fee which is calculated from the amount of time that has passed since you last purchased a discounted device. If its only been 0-7 months its a $200 fee, if its been longer than 18 months then there is no fee. More info here:

    2. Did resellers like Target stop applying their own Early Termination Fee (over and above and separate from T-Mobile’s ETF) if you don’t keep the qualifying call plan you committed to in order to get the sale price of $169?

  4. I wish I waited a few days longer …I just got the value unlimited plan with a 250$ down payment On a galaxy s3

    1. me too *sad trombone* although, we’re done paying now and don’t have to deal with amortized payments or mailing in a rebate card and waiting for $ *happy alpenhorn*

  5. This is in interesting opportunity although I question whether it is really worth it. I myself am not a fan of month payments and would rather get the lump sum out of the way.

    1. You can pay the balance wherever you want.

  6. T mobile sucks

  7. Galaxy Note 2, and i’m all in.
