In mid-February AT&T launched a BOGO (Buy One Get One) deal on a number of Samsung Galaxy smartphones. We assumed that the promotion’s aim was to move as many units of older models as possible before the Galaxy S7 arrives. However, AT&T has just announced that it’s extending the offer to the latest member of the Galaxy S family. Also T-Mobile is about to kick off a BOGO deal on the Galaxy S7. Here’s all you need to know about AT&T and T-Mobile Galaxy S7 Buy One Get One Free deals.
AT&T and T-Mobile customers can get a free Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. There are, however, a few details you should know before you decide on the offer.
AT&T terms and conditions
In order to get a free Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge on AT&T, you still need to meet the same conditions as before. The deal is available for both new and existing customers so the first Galaxy device can be purchased as a new line or an upgrade. The second phone, however, can be activated only as a new line through AT&T’s Next 24 program, no exceptions here. Also, in order to be eligible for the offer, you need a qualifying plan, such as a Mobile Share Value plan which costs no less that $70 per month.
If you meet all the criteria, you can get up to $695, which will cover the price of the Galaxy S7 or significantly reduce the cost of purchasing the Galaxy S7 Edge. Keep in mind, though, that those $695 will arrive in the form of monthly credits spread over 30 months. The credits will be applied to your account after up to three billing cycles. Great news is that even if you already have the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, you can still take advantage of the deal.
T-Mobile terms and conditions
T-Mobile also announced a BOGO promotion on the latest Galaxies, however, it slightly differs from AT&T’s deal. In this case, you will receive the full retail value of the second cheaper device not through monthly credits but in the form of a prepaid MasterCard debit card. It means that you still have to pay for both phones – the Galaxy S7 will cost $0 down plus 24 payments of $27.92 which works out to a total value of $669.99. The Galaxy S7 Edge, on the other hand, will set you back $59.99 down and 24 payments of $30 each, that is $779.99 total.
Don’t forget that both phones must be purchased on an Equipment Installment Plan and the second device has to be activated as a new line. Just like AT&T, T-Mobile allows customers to mix and match models, so you don’t have to buy two Galaxy S7s if you don’t want to – the second, free device can be the Galaxy S7 Edge. Moreover, if you have a family plan you can get no more than two free phones.
To sum up
Both deals will be available for a limited time but neither carrier provided any specific dates. T-Mobile’s promotion will go live tomorrow, March 10, and AT&T will make its promotion available to customers a day later, on March 11. There seem to be no territorial limitations as far as AT&T’s deal is concerned, but for some reason T-Mobile’s offer is not available in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Miami-Dade County, so keep that in mind if you live in any of these areas.
