T-Mobile’s Free Cell Phone & Gift Card Giveaway This Saturday

Free T-Mobile cell phones and $49 gift cards will be given away in promotions being held by T-Mobile this Saturday.

The promotions are being held to bring attention to T-Mobile’s new Value plans.

49 T-Mobile gift cards, that are each worth $49, are for grabs in a sweepstakes through T-Mobile’s Facebook page on Saturday, August 20. Facebook users must “like” T-Mobile’s Facebook page, and then complete an entry form that can be found under the $49 Value Plan ‘tab’.

T-Mobile also announced that they will be giving away 49 free cell phones, either the Samsung Exhibit 4G or the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G, on Saturday.

The free phones will go to the first 49 customers who purchase a qualifying plan at a participating store in one of 13 states on Saturday. The states are: California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Texas, Utah and Washington.

A bit of analysis here though:

– T-Mobile usually charges $99 (after rebates) for either the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G, or the Samsung Exhibit 4G, with the purchase of a plan.

– One of the two major online cell phone discounters, Wirefly offers each of these phones free with the purchase of a T-Mobile plan – as their regular pricing.

– The other online discounter, LetsTalk, offers the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G free with plan, and the Samsung Exhibit 4G, for $29.99 purchase of a T-Mobile plan.

– Both of these cell phone discounters sell in all 50 states, and do not require the customer to be one of the first 49 to order on a specific day.

T-Mobile’s featured Value plan, introduced last July, includes unlimited talk, unlimited text, and unlimited data, with 2 GB of high-speed data, for $49.99 per line for two lines. Additional details can be found at www.t-mobile.com.
