Technology is an ever-evolving industry and with it comes a vast array of consumer devices capable of connecting millions of people. But choosing the right smartphone and plan for you can be a fight between budget and preference. That’s why Let’s Talk keeps track of all the best carrier deals to find the right opportunity for you. Below we’ve compiled a list of the best T-Mobile phone deals available for the week of November 15, 2019.


iPhone 11 Trade-in

Total savings: Up to $580

For a limited time, T-Mobile is offering a trade-in deal to get the iPhone 11—Apple’s newest iPhone release heavily discounted. Now when you trade-in an eligible phone (in fine print), buy the phone through an installment plan, and add a new line you’ll get $580 off iPhone 11.

Let’s Talk Take: ★ ★ ★ ★ 

We’re giving this T-Mobile iPhone deal 4/5 stars. This iPhone deal allows you to get a brand new phone for just over $100. Because you do need to add a new line to qualify for this deal, we think this deal is best for someone looking to make the switch to T-Mobile. We took away one star because we’ve seen better deals on this phone from T-Mobile and other carriers.

Fine Print: Limited time. Must buy device on installment plan. You’ll start receiving promo credits within two bill cycles after your trade-in is received. Your discount will be applied as monthly credits.

Samsung Galaxy S10 & Note 10 BOGO

This T-Mobile deal is one you won’t want to miss out on! You can buy a new Samsung Galaxy S10e, S10, S10+, S10 5G, Note10 or Note10+ on a monthly payment plan and receive a second device for FREE (of equal or lesser value).

Let’s Talk Take: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

These are some of the hottest smartphones on the market and if you’re ready to get not one, but two high-end, top of the line devices, this is the deal for you.

Fine Print: Limited time. Must buy both devices on monthly payments. Must add a qualifying line (2+ total required). You will receive the value of the second device via 24 monthly bill credits, applied within 1-2 billing cycles.

Switch and T-Mobile Will Match Your Discount

Total Savings: Up to $360/year

T-Mobile has a new offer to rope in new customers. They’re offering to match your employee, affiliate, or military discount when you switch carriers from AT&T, Claro, Sprint, or Verizon and start new lines of service on their Magenta plan.

How does it work? T-Mobile will discount your bill up to $15/month for single lines and up to $30 for family plans (two lines or more).

This discount will be credited in several ways:

  • Monthly billing credits
  • Including taxes and fees in your plan
  • $8.99/month basic Netflix subscription (for two lines or more only)

Let’s Talk Take: ★ ★ 

Getting stuck at a carrier because you’re afraid to leave your company’s 20% discount can be a real drag. This deal can save you that headache in addition to up to $30/month on T-Mobile Magenta plans. For peace of mind and the prospect of better service, we give this deal three stars. T-Mobile has other switching deals with more savings, after all.

Fine Print: Limited time and only in participating locations. New accounts only and one offer per account. Must port in at least one new line on a Magenta Plan. Discount is credited in the form of billing credits. Taxes and fees included in plan price. Netflix inclusion requires two or more lines on Magenta plans. Billing credits begin within 1-2 cycles.

LG G8 ThinQ Discount

Total Savings: $390

For a limited time, you can get a $390 discount on a brand new LG G8 ThinQ. All you have to do is add a new line of service on a qualifying plan. It’s as easy as that!

Let’s Talk Take: ★ ★ ★ ★

This is a great discount on a super sleep, sophisticated device. Normally priced at $750, you’ll get the LG G8 ThinQ for only $360.

Fine Print: Must add one line of service. Discount is applied via 24 billing credits, within 1-2 billing cycles.

#GetOutoftheRed

Total Savings: Up to $650

T-Mobile really wants Verizon customers to switch to them. To entice you, they are offering to pay off what you owe on your device, up to $650, when you make the switch. To qualify for this deal you need to have an eligible iPhone, Pixel, or Samsung phone with Verizon.

Let’s Talk Take: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 

We’re giving this deal 5/5 stars because T-Mobile is a great carrier, and they are PAYING you to switch. Not only are they willing to offer up to $650, but you also get to keep and use your phone on their network which isn’t always the case with deals like this.

get-out-of-the-red-t-mobile
T-Mobile will pay off your phone payments, up to $650, when you leave Verizon and switch to them.

Fine Print: Limited time offer. Your device payment plan with Verizon must be at least 90 days old. You have to port in your current number. The $15 ONE Plus feature or the Global Plus Feature needs to be added to your device. Only available with qualifying phones:

  • iPhone SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X, XR, XS, and XS Max
  • Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, and Pixel 3 XL
  • Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+, Note8, S9, S9+, and Note9

Get 2 Phones and 2 Lines for $100/Month

Total Savings: Up to $175.20

There is a T-Mobile offer on the T-Mobile Essentials family plan that allows you to join with two lines and get two select Android phones for $5/month each. With the plan, you’ll pay $90/month for T-Mobile Essentials and $10/month for your two devices every month.

The phones include budget Android devices, such as:

  • LG Aristo 2 Plus ($150)
  • Samsung Galaxy J3 Star ($175)
  • Motorola E5 Play ($150)
  • T-Mobile REVVL Plus ($120) and REVVL 2 ($168)

Rather than paying the full retail price for each phone, you will instead pay the reduced price of $5/month after billing credits are applied within 1-2 billing cycles. Credits vary based on the retail price of each phone, knocking them down to that $5 each per month.

As for the plan included, T-Mobile Essentials includes unlimited talk, text, and data with 50GB of high-speed data before any reduced speeds (deprioritization when T-Mobile’s network becomes congested) and costs $90/month for two lines. It’s a fairly no-frills unlimited plan, but with T-Mobile’s 4G network, it offers almost everything you need. It even includes an unlimited 3G-speed hotspot.

Let’s Talk Take: ★ ★ ★ 

If you need a new unlimited family plan and want two affordable smartphones, this is your deal. Paying $10/month for two phones is a pretty sweet option, but keep in mind these devices aren’t high-end. Three stars.

Fine Print: Two lines of service and two devices with financing agreements required. Discounts paid out via billing credits within 1-2 billing cycles. 12 devices max. Taxes not included. Credit check, deposit, and $25 SIM card kit may be required.
