T-Mobile has become known as a progressive network since John Legere took the helm in 2013, with a number of initiatives openly pandering to modern culture to gain subscribers. Arguably, this tactic has served them well so far. Among their new values was a duty to serve their customers the best way they can, and one of their last major initiatives was to give customers free stuff. T-Mobile Tuesdays has had its hitches, but has managed to garner wide praise and help T-Mobile to grow and maintain their subscriber base. Most weeks, T-Mobile unveils a new partner for the program and coming next week, on Tuesday September 13, T-Mobile will begin a partnership with PetSmart for the program.
Customers who want to spoil their furry friends are in luck for the upcoming T-Mobile Tuesday. Along with the usual rewards, being a Lyft ride, Vudu rental and free Wendy's Frosty, customers will receive (at least) $7 off their next purchase at PetSmart. While products aimed at the winged, four-legged, and aquatic sectors of the market can be a bit pricey, a $7 coupon just for being a T-Mobile customer is still a pretty sweet deal. In the higher tiers, things get a little more interesting as customers will have the opportunity to win $50 to use at Petsmart. Which should be enough for a fancy drinking fountain or small cat house, or as much as $200 which should be enough for a veritable shopping spree.
The headline tier of the promotion promises loyal Magenta users and their pets an "Ultimate Pet Retreat". The lucky winner can take along one friend and one pet for a 3 day and 2 night stay at the fur-friendly Doris Day's Cypress Inn in California. The luxurious 2-day getaway comes complete with a full suite of paid expenses, including travel to and from, and meals. The whole package is valued at $4,000, and includes a $500 PetSmart gift card and a check for $1,700 for the winner to use as they see fit. Any taxes or other duties, car rental, and food and beverages outside of T-Mobile's meals are the responsibility of the prize winner, so it may pay to check out the fine print.
