Last week, T-Mobile's CEO, John Legere teased that he had a big announcement involving Google's Pixel smartphones. Many had thought that Verizon's "exclusivity" was over, but that was not the case. Instead, T-Mobile is offering users who bought the Google Pixel and Pixel XL from Verizon, to bring it over to T-Mobile and get a bill credit for half off of the retail price. That's $325 over the course of 24 months. It's not all at once, unfortunately, and that is likely to keep you with T-Mobile for 24 months instead of hoping over to get the bill credit then leaving.
At launch, this was only available for those on the T-Mobile ONE and T-Mobile ONE Plus plans – their new unlimited plans. However, as of Monday, T-Mobile extended this to Simple Choice Unlimited users as well. Now since the Simple Choice plans are not actively being offered, this means that you would need to buy the Google Pixel or Pixel XL from Verizon off contract (and not as a customer) and then bring it on over to T-Mobile. Still worth doing, if you're game to wait 24 months to get your $325 in bill credits. This means that it's not available to all Simple Choice users, just those on the Unlimited plan.
It's pretty simple, just head to the validation site, and use the promo code "PIXEL" and you'll be able to get the bill credit. You will need to fill in some information as well. It's a pretty sweet deal for those that are a bit upset with paying so much for a smartphone. Since the Google Pixel and Pixel XL are much more expensive than many Nexus devices before it. But it is priced in line with what you would pay Samsung, Apple, LG and even HTC for a smartphone these days. It doesn't appear to work for Pixel devices bought from the Google Store however. But that may change if enough people voice their opinion to T-Mobile. Which is why they changed this promotion to include Simple Choice Unlimited users and not just T-Mobile ONE users.
