MetroPCS gives free 4G LTE phone for each added line
T-Mobile US’s MetroPCS announced today a new promotion. MetroPCS gives free 4G LTE phone after mail-in rebate to customers for each new added line of service. Customers can also choose to purchase pricier phones eligible for this promotion, activate them on a new line and receive a $30 discount. The offer is available only in stores for a limited time. It’s good starting today, April 27 through May 19, 2015. Not all phones eligible for the offer are LTE-capable.
Up to three lines can be added and for each new line, customers will get a free phone. MetroPCS customers with active account need to purchase a new phone and after mail in rebate, get their money back. The phones that are free with this promotion after mail-in rebate are:
- Alcatel ONETOUCH Evolve 2 (3G) – receive a $19 MetroPCS prepaid card
- Alcatel ONETOUCH Fierce 2 (4G), LG 450 (feature phone), LG Optimus L70 (4G), Kyocera Hydro LIFE (4G) and Samsung Galaxy Light (4G LTE) and receive a $29 MetroPCS prepaid card
There is also a third group of smartphones eligible for this promotion. When customers in store purchase the LG Optimus F60 4G LTE (online, after all discounts costs $49, regular 159), Samsung Galaxy Avant (costs $99, regular $199), Samsung Galaxy S5 ($479, regular $649), Samsung Galaxy S6 ($649), or ZTE ZMAX and activate a new line of service with it, they will get $30 back in a form of a MetroPCS prepaid card.
Regarding ZTE ZMAX, T-Mobile and MetroPCS both pulled the ZMAX from the sales since April 15, 2015 “until further notice” due to customers trying to remove the phone’s non-removable battery.
Update: T-Mobile yesterday, April 27, 2015, resumed sales of the ZMAX. However, salespeople must warn ZMAX buyers that the back of the phone and battery aren’t removable so only an authorized tech should open it.
In order to receive a rebate after purchasing a phone and activating it on a new line of service, customers need to pay for the second month of MetroPCS service no later than 35 days after the rebate phone activation.
