[Expired] Costco In-Store: BOGO T-Mobile Samsung S20, Plus Samsung Credit
Update 2/24/20: The BOGO is now live through the 27th. Additionally, you may be eligible for a $100-$200 Samsung credit by pre-registering your device. Hat tip Slickdeals. (Not sure if the March 6th stack will work since they may not allow stacking the deals, as per the update in the Slickdeals thread.)
Via Slickdeals, on March 6th, T-Mobile stores will be running the following two offers:
- Buy 2 Samsung Galaxy S20 in Costco stores on March 6th and get a $900 Master Card after rebate when adding 1 new line as an existing T-Mobile customer or adding 2 new lines as a new customer.
Here are the prices: S20 is $899, S20+ is $1,099, S20 Ultra is $1,249 (S20 Ultra is $150 less then normal). So if you buy two S20s, you’ll essentially be getting one free since you’ll pay $1,800 and get $900 back as a Mastercard.
Separately, they have a trade-in offer on March 6th:
- Get up to $500 back when you trade in your old phone. The new phones get $500 trade-in value and older phones have lower values. The trade in credit comes partially in form of bill credit and partially in form of Mastercard gift card.
Sample deal scenario: if you currently have a Galaxy S9 ($500 trade-in value), you can trade that in, and you’ll walk away with two S20s for just $400 since you’ll pay $1,800 and get back $900 rebate + $500 trade-in credit. You will have the cost of adding a line, though, so that’ll increase your costs a bit; you’ll have to keep the new line for a few months (until you get the rebate, I think?).
Even better would be if you can trade in two Galaxy S9’s and get two $500 trade-in credits. I don’t know if that works, but if it does you’ll walk away being paid $100 to trade in your two S9s for S20s. You’ll pay $1,800 for the two S20s and you’ll get back $900 rebate + $500 trade in + $500 for the second trade in. (There is the cost of the added line for a few months, but overall you’ll probably end up a bit ahead and you’ll have the updated phone.) Let us know if you try this.
Hat tip again to SD
