Still hunting for an exceptional Valentine’s Day gift for your other half? If so, you’re in the right place at the right time, since yesterday T-Mobile announced bringing back its “Tablet on Us” deal. The Magenta carrier is now offering us one of their best-selling tablets, the Alcatel OneTouch Pop 7 for free. The only requirement you can face is that in order to take advantage of the deal you will have to purchase at least 1GB data plan from the carrier. That’s all.
T-Mobile Valentine’s Promo – How to get a free tablet.
Starting from the logistics, the new T-Mobile Valentine’s promo kicks off tomorrow and will be valid until February 16th, which is Monday. It offers everyone a free Alcatel OneTouch Pop 7 Android tablet, but to become eligible for this special deal you need to sign up for the postpaid data plan of 1GB or higher.
How the promo works in practice? Getting the said ‘free tablet’ you will naturally have to pay the total device tax at the point of sale. Since every state has a different tax rate, the mentioned tax cost may vary dependently on your place of residence. However, it shouldn’t cost you more than $15. When signing for the promotion, you will also have a $7 monthly payment added to your bill every 24 months. In addition, if for some reason you decide to cancel your data plan before the set in contract data, you will have to pay the tablet’s remaining leftover balance.
Moving on the carrier’s data plan offer, T-Mobile’s plans start at $20 per month if 1GB data is sufficient for you. However, if you want more, you can buy a 11GB package plan with $70 monthly payment.
Speaking of the tablet itself, in case it somehow skipped your mind, the OneTouch Pop 7 is an Android-based slate sporting a 7-inch 1024×600 display, 2MP main camera and a 0.3 front-facing one. It comes powered by a 1.3GHz dual-core processor paired with 1GB RAM and 8GB of native storage and a 3,240mAh battery.
Concluding, although the promo looks quite profitable, note that the tablet will cost you more than if you for example decide to buy a Wi-Fi only version of the device, which is nothing wrong with it. All tablets with 4G LTE support tends to be more expensive than the models without it.
