T-Mobile Launches BOGO Event for Families to Upgrade

January 27, 2016 - Written By Alexander Maxham

As was reported yesterday, T-Mobile has launched their BOGO event today which allows those on a family plan to upgrade one phone and get the second one at half off. According to a survey that T-Mobile cites in their press release, many that are on family plans won’t upgrade everyone at once. Mostly due to the different times that upgrades are available, as well as the costs and fees of upgrading four family members at the same time. T-Mobile is looking to change that, at least a little bit. So starting today, January 27th, you can get a LG V10 at regular price, and get the second one at $12.50 per month. That would net a customer around $300 in savings over the 24-month period. That’s a pretty good deal.

However, not every smartphone that T-Mobile carries is part of this deal. According to their website, the Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5, LG G4 and LG V10 are all eligible for the BOGO pricing. All of which would save you around $300 over the course of the Equipment Installment Plan, which is for 24 months. These prices are available in store and over the phone. Unfortunately, T-Mobile is not doing this sale online. So you will have to actually make your way to a T-Mobile store to get this BOGO deal. A bit of a downer, but it’s always nice to have a look at the smartphone you’re buying, in person before buying it.

This sale includes both new and existing T-Mobile customers. Many sales and deals like this are to entice new customers over to a carrier, but T-Mobile is going the “Uncarrier” route and opening it up to existing customers as well. As a plea to get them to upgrade. Those that are switching over to T-Mobile, would also get things like Music Freedom which allows you to stream unlimited music from select services for free without it hitting your data cap. There’s also Binge On, which “optimizes” your data so you can get more video out of your data bucket. A great idea there. There’s also the ability to roam in hundreds of countries without any roaming fees. Not to mention you can head over to Canada or Mexico and use your phone like you would at home.

T-Mobile didn’t mention how long this BOGO sale would last, only stating that it’s a “limited” time sale. So if you’re looking to upgrade, you’d better do it quickly.
