T-Mobile has officially announced the rolling out of its products across Walmart and Best Buy stores. The carrier said that Metro by T-Mobile now has a presence in over 2,300 Walmart stores. Separately, more than 900 Best Buy stores across the country now offer T-Mobile’s products.
The carrier also unveiled a bunch of promotions as part of the announcement. Best Buy locations mostly cover iPhone-related promotions including deals on the iPhone 13 Pro and the 13 Pro Max (via).
Walmart stores are getting a handful of budget Android phones
First up is the T-Mobile REVVL V which will sell for just $19. It will be available on November 11 at Walmart stores and online. The carrier said this phone will make its way to Metro by T-Mobile stores on November 30.
Additionally, the Samsung Galaxy A02s and the Galaxy A12 are available for $59 and $89, a discount of $60 each on the regular price. The Moto G Stylus 5G can be yours for $159 while the OnePlus Nord N200 5G will go for $129.
“Since the beginning of 2021, we’ve more than quadrupled T-Mobile’s national retailer footprint. Through these partnerships we are bringing customers access to America’s fastest and most reliable 5G network, delivering more competition than before, and providing the best customer experiences in wireless to more people in more places across the US,” Consumer Group President at T-Mobile, Jon Freier said.
Starting November 1, T-Mobile will also start same-day in-store repairs across 500 stores. These benefits apply to users who spend at least $7 or more per month on the carrier’s Protection plan. T-Mobile said in a release last month that the repairs would be conducted by “highly-credentialed” experts and technicians.
The carrier also raised the total number of claims permitted under the T-Mobile Protection plan from three to five. “This is more than the industry standard of just three claims per 12 months,” the carrier said while announcing these changes in September.
While 5G is the main focus for T-Mobile, it recently said that it would extend the closure date of Sprint’s 3G networks until March 2022. Meanwhile, the carrier will shut down Sprint’s 4G LTE network on June 30, 2022. These are some of the effects of T-Mobile’s acquisition of Sprint. The carrier is currently engaged in the process of bringing some Sprint customers back to its network.
