T-Mobile Gives Shoppers Opportunity to Beat the Holiday Rush with Special Offer

New Survey Says Nine-in-Ten Americans Find Winter Holiday Shopping Stressful While 72 Percent Would Make a Sacrifice to Get a Good Deal

Bellevue, Wash. — Nov. 13, 2012

Shift your holiday shopping into high gear with T-Mobile® this November and get ahead of the Black Friday rush. For two days only, Nov. 16– 17, customers can purchase a Samsung 4G smartphone, including the wildly popular Samsung Galaxy S® III, for free with qualifying plans.

 

A new survey1 by Kelton Research uncovered that holiday shoppers don’t feel that Black Friday is worth their time, with 51 percent reporting that nothing could entice them to stand in line. Yet 72 percent responded that finding reasonable prices is most important to them when shopping during the winter holidays. This holiday season, T-Mobile is helping consumers combat the stress of Black Friday while they enjoy great value with its pre-holiday sale.

“If getting a great deal on your gift purchases is important, and you prefer to limit your time in holiday checkout lines, then this T-Mobile promotional offer could be for you,” said Andrew Sherrard, senior vice president of marketing, T-Mobile USA. “We think this offer will be particularly attractive for families who would like every member to have a mobile device but don’t think it fits their budget. This promotion will make it easier for consumers to join the smartphone revolution by making the best devices and data plans more affordable.”

 

New and existing eligible customers can take advantage of this pre-holiday sale. Customers will receive their device for free, after a mail-in rebate card2, when they sign up for a new two-year contract on any qualifying unlimited Classic plan, or for a $0.00 down payment (after a mail-in rebate card) when signing up for a new two-year contract on a new qualifying Unlimited Value® plan with an Equipment Installment Plan (EIP).3

Offering customers the ultimate worry-free experience, unlimited data plans feature no data caps, no speed limits and no overages on T-Mobile’s network, as well as fast, dependable nationwide 4G coverage.
