Now, Verizon customers who make the switch to T-Mobile can get one full year of Hulu—no trade-in required—and up to 50% off select gifts from smartwatches to speakers to games
Bellevue, Washington — December 10, 2015 — T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today unwrapped the fourth gift in its series of Un-carrier Unwrapped holiday surprises, this time for Verizon customers. The Un-carrier first gave its Simple Choice customers three months of Unlimited LTE. Then, Sprint customers got $200 per line when they switched. And AT&T customers can still get a phone memory upgrade and half-off accessories when they make the switch through Sunday, December 13. Now, T-Mobile’s giving Verizon customers 12 months of mobile viewing joy with up to a full year of Hulu when they come to the Un-carrier, no trade-in required.
In addition, T-Mobile’s also offering up to half off its world-class line-up of financed in-store accessories for Verizon customers who join the Un-carrier. That could mean as much as a $125 discount on the hottest mobile gifts, like the latest smartwatches, UE Boom and JBL Bluetooth speakers, top-of-the-line headphones, Fitbit fitness trackers, Guitar Hero Live for iOS and more.

“Verizon customers put up with a lot of sneaky tricks from Big Red these days. Overpriced data, shocking overage penalties and no early upgrade option – just to name a few,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “So while Verizon spends billions of dollars on TV ads screaming that ‘better matters,’ we are going to show their customers why the Un-carrier is better with a real gift, half-off the best accessories and a full year of Hulu that comes with unlimited LTE streaming with Binge On at T-Mobile! It’s a gift that will keep giving all year long!”
When a customer watches Hulu, they’re paying a lot more than a normal subscription fee with other carriers, thanks to inflated data charges and overages. Binge-watching a full season of Hulu’s original The Mindy Project – which just aired its mid-season finale of season four - eats up about 2.6 GBs of high-speed data. That could cost as much as $40 extra on your Verizon bill, depending on the data plan. Watch one too many shows, and you’ll tip into Verizon’s overage penalties to the tune of $15 as soon as you go even a single KB over your data limit.
This latest Un-carrier Unwrapped gift is available starting tomorrow, December 11th, through December 17th in T-Mobile stores or by phone. Customers who switch any Verizon number to T-Mobile’s Simple Choice postpaid plan will get a text message with a $100 Hulu subscription gift code, good for more than 12 months of Hulu’s Limited Commercials plan. No trade-in necessary.
In addition, Verizon’s customers are eligible for T-Mobile’s Carrier Freedom and up to $650 per line or more to cover Verizon’s early termination fees (ETFs) or the balance owed on your Verizon phone when you switch your number to T-Mobile with a trade-in.
There’s never been a better time for Verizon customers to come to the Un-carrier. Watch all the Hulu you want all year long without watching your data, thanks to Binge On. Plus, Verizon customers get all those other Un-carrier extras like unlimited global data roaming and texting in more than 140 countries, the freedom to use your phone in Mexico and Canada like you do at home, unlimited streaming music with Music Freedom and more—and all on America’s fastest 4G LTE network.
