T-Mobile confirms BOGO Samsung Galaxy S7 / edge deal
Right now, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 is arguably the most popular smartphone around. Maybe in a few weeks, once LG gets G5 sales started, or Apple announces its new iPhone, or HTC steps up to the podium with its own latest flagship – maybe then Samsung’s fortunes will start to change. For the moment, though, it’s the manufacturer delivering the latest tech in the snazziest package, and consumers are responding in kind. That’s driven the companies selling the GS7 (and more importantly, the service for it) to do all they can to steer purchases their way, and this week the big hook we’ve been discussing has been buy-one-get-one-free deals from carriers. Yesterday AT&T announced its promotion, and today we get confirmation of the T-Mobile deal that first leaked on Monday.
If you saw that earlier leak, there’s no surprises here, and the offer T-Mobile’s announcing is pretty much exactly what that document laid out: buy a pair of Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge handsets on T-Mobile’s installment program (with matching service plans, naturally), and you’ll get a rebate for the second device in the form of a prepaid MasterCard.
What makes this deal a bit more attractive than AT&T’s is that T-Mobile covers either the GS7 or its pricier edge variant; AT&T wouldn’t spring for the extra $100 the edge fetches, making its deal essentially GS7 only. You can even mix and match at T-Mobile, but the promo will only reimburse you for the cheaper phone – no buying the GS7 and hoping for a free GS7 edge, smart guy.
This deal exists on top of other offers like Samsung’s free Gear VR viewer with GS7 purchase, so you’re free to take advantage of that one, too.
Shoppers can begin taking T-Mobile up on its BOGO offer by placing online orders starting tomorrow.
